If you're a user with an assigned Sales Hub or Service Hub Professional or Enterprise paid seat, you can use Conversation Intelligence (CI) to transcribe and analyze recordings made through HubSpot’s calling tool, using HubSpot's integration with Zoom, or using a third-party calling provider that is integrated with HubSpot. After analyzing recordings, you can add inline comments to call transcripts to give targeted, contextual feedback to your reps. This enables you to coach your team more effectively and gain valuable customer insights from the recordings and transcripts.
