Press Release

Transamerica Launches First-Of-Its-Kind Voice Biometrics and Natural Language Understanding to Increase Security and Enhance Customer Experience

Issued by Transamerica

May 1, 2017

New Voice Pass technology enables Transamerica customers to use their voice for authentication and easy, effective self-service

May 1, 2017 -- Transamerica announced today that it is launching Transamerica Voice Pass, a first-of-its-kind feature developed with Nuance Communications, Inc., that increases security and enhances the customer experience by leveraging voice biometrics technology within a natural language understanding system. Customers calling Transamerica’s customer care service centers will be able to more easily and securely authenticate and access their accounts while also identifying the reason for their call, simply by speaking.

Transamerica is the first company in the U.S. to launch an interactive voice response experience that combines innovative voice biometrics technology and natural language – using the unique sound of the customer’s voice for authentication. Once a customer is enrolled in the optional service, he or she simply speaks the passphrase, “At Transamerica, my voice is my password,” to securely access their accounts, without the need for additional passwords, PINs, security questions or subsequent calls.

Voice Pass verifies the customer’s voice against his or her unique voiceprint on file and, if matched, access is granted. Voice biometrics analyzes more than 100 physical and behavioral voice characteristics to identify and verify an individual by their unique voiceprint. While effective in reducing acts of fraud, voice biometrics is also 80 percent faster to authenticate compared to PINs, passwords and security questions.

“At Transamerica, we’re determined to make it as safe, simple and convenient as possible for our customers to interact with us,” said Gerard Rescigno, Transamerica chief technology officer. “Implementing Voice Pass is an extension of that commitment – allowing our customers to communicate with us more easily, and with added security. We’re excited to deliver this innovative and trusted technology to enrich the overall customer experience.”

“Consumers today expect natural, effortless and secure experiences from the companies with whom they do business,” said Robert Weideman, executive vice president and general manager, Enterprise Division, Nuance. “Transamerica’s Voice Pass with Nuance’s voice biometrics and natural language understanding provide a unique balance of convenient, conversational and secure experiences right from a customer’s first point of contact. We are proud that Transamerica is the first organization in the U.S. to roll out this powerful enhancement to its customers.”
