2016 CCW Winter Post Show Report

Today's customers expect service on their own terms – whenever they need, in whatever digital channel they want. When these needs are unmet, there can be increasing customer churn, escalating operating costs and decreasing shareholder value.

A common thread ran throughout conversations – customers don’t come first anymore, the agents do. Experts agree that if you’re looking to be the best service delivery company world, you have to achieve it with the right agents in the right place. This report gives you insight into those conversations with examples as to how top companies were able to achieve this.

Real Help. For Real People. In Real Time.

The theory behind excellent Customer Service isn't complex: Do everything in your power to assist caller inquiries in a timely manner and do so with a smile. Simple, right? Not so fast. Support environments are complicated and mired with numerous hiccups. Amy Latzer, Chief Operating Officer at 211 LA County, explains.

Beyond the Headset: Listen to Your Agents to Create Culture

The first step to managing employee expectations, goals and demands is to understand what those demands are. The only way to do so is to ask them.

Crystal Wyland, Vice President of Customer Experience, explains why Transamerica doesn’t just ask for employee’s opinions. They act upon them.

Liz Osborn, Vice President of Product and Solution Marketing at Five9, answers all these questions and more.

For More Effective Measurement, Put Away the Rulers
