Put the dates on your calendar now and then confirm your spot on our Very Important Customer VIC List to ensure you receive the exclusive discounts and offers available.

At our annual ICUC user group event a few weeks back, there was some very spirited conversation about building the contact center of the future. What does this future look like, who staffs it, how is it measured and, most importantly, what steps do we need to take NOW to ensure the future-readiness of our contact centers?
Our CEO Paul Jarman sat down with 1 to 1 Magazine’s executive editor, Tom Hoffman, to discuss this and much more. Click here to watch Paul’s turn in Hoffman’s Hot Seat.Read

On Wednesday, I hosted our 22nd inContact Problem Solved roadshow in Louisville, Kentucky. Aside from the discussions of Kentucky basketball, bourbon and horse racing, we had some terrific presentations from customers Ray Valentine from KM2 and Mike Miller from Corrisoft. While their businesses are radically different – Ray's company provides outsourced contact center services and Mike's company is in the correctional market – what was remarkably similar about them was… it's all about growth.
KM2 continues to add new customers, agents, campaigns and geographies in order to service their growing base of financial services, insurance and telecom customers. Corrisoft is doing some truly innovative stuff around services for correctional institutions and their populations. Both these organizations are laser focused on fast growth – and they look to the cloud to enable their expansion. As Mike Miller so eloquently said, "I don't want to worry about building call centers… I just want to be able to communicate with my customers and grow my business."Read
OK…I admit it…I’m sort of a type A personality. In fact, it’s true of most of the great Marketeers I know. We tend to be high-powered types who live on adrenalin and deadlines. From the outside, Marketing seems like a glamour job but, for those of us on the inside, we know its elbow grease and a ton of hard work with a small amount of magic and glitter at the very end to make it all sparkle. So what makes marketers – and most people – run even harder than they naturally do? Appreciation. Take a look at this post on Harvard Business Review.Read
