Serving customers across numerous channels in contact centers with innovative solutions are readily available. Retail businesses often face a variety of challenges, like high call volumes, massive orders, and aggravated customers, particularly during seasonal surges. To ensure a superior customer experience is delivered, it is imperative to have a strategic plan in place. The goal is to leverage technology so that a seamless, efficient, and enjoyable contact center customer experience can be achieved no matter the channel of communication being used. Here’s a look at some pointers your contact center can utilize to ensure your customers have positive interactions with your brand.
Keeping a call-center running smoothly can be challenging for even the largest enterprises. Customers call in expecting immediate service and engagement for their issues. Contact center agents want support from higher-ups in managing their call queues and getting to critical customer complaints promptly. Incorporating artificial intelligence customer experience solutions can go a long way toward relieving pain points experienced by both groups.

If you have not updated the way that you do business in your Contact Center recently, then you likely are not providing a modern customer experience. Ensuring that you are delivering an experience that your customers need is critical to future growth and satisfaction.
Automation has always been part of the contact center world – and it is getting even bigger with the addition of chatbots. While they are in a basic stage now, as is with all things related to AI, chatbots are getting better the more we use them. Machine learning is different than human learning – it’s only as good as the data we feed it. Chatbots lack natural cognition to challenge inputs such as 2+2 = 5. But over time, patterns are established that make chatbots “intelligent” – smart enough to take on more and more complicated tasks.
Businesses spend millions marketing their products trying to satisfy existing customers and gain new ones. A great Customer Experience is at the top of the list when looking at ways to develop loyalty and shine above competitors. However, all that effort goes to waste when customers feel upset and frustrated when they call into your contact center to resolve an issue – and have to wait and wait to talk to a representative.
One bad customer experience can lead to consumers dropping a business’s services and switching to a rival. Companies can make headway in reducing hangups by employing a callback option in their contact center.
Contact centers must streamline operations in order to remain competitive in the modern business landscape. Artificial intelligence has the ability to do this in ways that a strictly human team simply cannot. Many contact centers that are falling behind with the technology are also falling behind in performance. Let’s take a look at some of the ways that artificial intelligence is used in the modern contact center.
Does your organization currently have a multi-channel customer engagement strategy? How about an omni-channel strategy? Whether you do or don’t, it is important that you understand the difference between the two. Before you can adopt best practices, you have to understand what you’re working with, as well as what you’re working toward. Multi-channel and omni-channel customer engagement help you achieve separate objectives.
Many people believe the difference between the two terms is very subtle. However, once you take a closer look, you’ll quickly notice they are, in fact, two strategies that follow two very distinct paths. Let’s explore their meanings and how they can help you to create seamless interactions with your customers.
It’s that time of year when baseball appears on our television again…Batter Up, Baseball season has begun! But why are we talking about baseball? Well, the management of a sports team, any type of athletes on a team really, is not that different from the management of contact center agents. Remember the Oakland A’s—the major league baseball team that inspired the book and movie Moneyball? They integrated big data analytics into their team strategy and it changed the game as we know it. By leveraging available data, the team manager was able to assess specific players’ values and performances to assemble power-packed lineups for each game. The end result: one of the most influential strategies to hit professional baseball.
