(WXYZ) - Every time you call the bank, you need to verify your address, your pin number. Sometimes you even have to answer those dreaded security questions: What's your mother's maiden name? What is the first street that you lived on as a child?
Well, a new voice verification system, could help people avoid all of that hassle.
NICE Systems, a company in Israel created the real-time authentication system--it takes a customer's previous call recordings and creates a voice print.
Then, when the customer calls back, if the voice print is a match, the caller's identity is automatically confirmed.
Analysts say most call centers take up to 60 seconds for caller verification. The new system would identify callers in less than 15 seconds--allowing the centers to handle higher call volumes.
The company says their system has already been picked up by several large financial institutions around the world and has a successful match rate greater than 90 percent.
Company officials say they also have heavy fraud protection with this layered voice ID program.
