The existing upgrade paths from legacy PBX and ACD suppliers make it difficult for contact center executives to contemplate the future of customer service on their own terms. If your ACD-based contact center has become a road block for adding capacity or adding channels such as social media and mobile, you might want to think about making the switch to a SIP-based contact center solution. SIP delivers two important advantages over legacy switching: 1. SIP is based on open standards, so you can choose hardware and software that is best suited for your environment. 2. SIP’s capability extends beyond voice to new media types such as mobile, social media and video. SIP-based contact centers provide a roadmap to sophisticated features without the complexity and expense of traditional proprietary ACDs. Learn more about how to build the next-generation customer service platform.

Chatbots are hungry and knowledge management is the secret sauce. Chatbots are all the rage. They help customers find information and answers. They help contact centers automate tasks and create considerable efficiency gains. How, then, do organizations ensure their chatbots consistently deliver A+ experiences? The answer is knowledge management. Without the availability of rich, relevant content, chatbots have very little to work with during customer interactions. They won’t be able to accurately match user intent with the right information. And that’s no good for the customer. How knowledge management changes all that is the topic of our latest whitepaper.

The customer service contact center thrives on performance metrics. These metrics provide operational insight into the efficiency of the customer service process, including how effectively customer service representatives are performing their duties — as well as how well customers are being served. Many performance metrics are as old as the contact center industry itself and are still in widespread use today. The purpose of this paper is not to disparage existing contact center performance metrics or to suggest that these metrics no longer matter. The authors acknowledge that the metrics that matter to the reader’s contact center are the ones that make sense in that particular situation. Rather, this paper explores some of the emerging metrics that specifically acknowledge and address the changing attitudes, objectives and definition of the contemporary contact center.

Cloud communications provide myriad benefits for organizations, including speed of deployment, the ability to future-proof infrastructure and applications, business continuity, predictable monthly payments, and many more.

Predictive routing uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to create balance—meeting targets and giving customers a personalized experience. Read Demystifying AI: Creating an AI partnership that maximizes business results to learn how predictive routing systematically: Evaluates historical and real-time data to make predictions; Makes the best customer-agent match to drive desired outcomes; Keeps agents engaged and reduces handle times.

Businesses must become agile and provide differentiated service as customer demands and expectations change. Moving beyond simple phone transactions, customers are taking matters into their own hands and turning to their peers, the web and social media to find answers.
