Level AI vs Tethr

Empower your agents & delight your customers with next Level AI

Tethr is a conversation intelligence platform with outdated AI capabilities for mid-sized businesses. The depth and detail of customer and agent performance insights are restricted due to Tethr’s ability to detect only predefined keywords and phrases.

Don’t settle for old technology when you have access to the most advanced contact center platform, powered by industry-leading semantic intelligence and generative AI.

Artificial Intelligence

Level AI
Advanced technology with semantic intelligence and generative AI
Level AI’s proprietary AI, trained to your data, grasps the conversation’s context and customer intent for accurate automated scoring, insights, analytics, real-time agent assistance, and more.
tethr speech analytics
Limited to identifying keywords and phrases

Tethr’s technology is limited to detecting pre-trained keywords. While it relies on NLP algorithms for literal meaning, it struggles with hidden customer intent, affecting analytics, insights, and agent metrics.

Contact Center and Business Analytics

Level AI
AI-driven analytics to uncover actionable customer, business, and product insights
Level AI’s conversational analytics automates data collection and analysis, featuring customizable user-friendly dashboards for insights on customer satisfaction, business growth, and product adoption.
tethr speech analytics
Surface-level insights with generalized index scoring as the basis for analysis
Tethr uses TEI and AIS in their analytics, generated from predefined data. However, applying a generic, black box model to your conversations limits the detection of unique business-specific metrics.

Voice of the Customer

Level AI
GenAI-powered Voice of the Customer (VoC) reports
Level AI harnesses cutting-edge semantic and generative AI for instant Voice of the Customer insights, which automatically summarizes key issues in your product and services, freeing you to focus on team and business success.
tethr speech analytics
Generalized VoC insights that lack depth in understanding
Tethr relies on predefined variables and phrases, which limits the depth of VoC insights because it fails to fully grasp the diverse ways customers express themselves.

AI-Driven Quality Assurance

Level AI
GenAI-driven QA that auto-scores to your specific requirements
Level AI’s GenAI-powered solution uses proprietary GPT models to accurately auto-score your custom grading rubrics. Customize multiple rubrics and eliminate bias with calibration sessions. Every automated evaluation contains proof from your conversation data.
tethr speech analytics
Rigid, generalized black-box scoring
Tethr lacks rubric-specific auto QA and scores. TEI and AIS are black box scores that aren’t tailored to your specific needs, and customizability depends on fitting into their system, which doesn’t suit your unique performance and QA requirements.


Level AI
AI-driven to identify critical coaching opportunities and provide fact-based learning
Level AI offers personalized coaching sessions and data-driven insights into individual agent performance. Our two-way learning process allows agents to provide direct responses to feedback and coaching plans on the platform, creating a transparent feedback loop.
tethr speech analytics
Cannot set up personalized coaching sessions and plans within the platform
Tethr lacks in-platform agent coaching and tracking. Managers can’t give feedback or communicate with agents directly within Tethr, making coaching a manual and offline process outside the platform.

Real-time Agent Assist

Level AI
Continuously learns and guides your agents in real-time
Empower new agents with instant, omnichannel guidance, complemented by AgentGPT, trained on and continuously learns based on your data to auto-generate tailored answers for agent and customer success.
tethr speech analytics
Does not evolve with customer and agent needs
Tethr’s agent assist solution provides basic features like surfacing answers from knowledge articles and agent prompts, but lacks continuous learning and adaptability to evolving customer questions and agent needs.

Screen Recording

Level AI
Advanced screen recording for insights into user productivity, coaching, compliance, and QA
Level AI’s screen recording offers video redaction, omnichannel recording, background mode, and more for instant insights into productivity, coaching, compliance, and QA.
