2020 Planning: Answers to Overcoming Budget Objections, Improving Experiences and Specialization

We’ve just concluded 2020 Planning for Uncertain Times – Practical Tips for Contact Center Leaders, a great webinar series where our speakers discussed the can’t miss investments that you should be making. What I truly enjoyed was the engagement of our audience. Their participation in the Q&A gave speakers the opportunity to address a great deal of questions. There were so many questions that we ran out of time to address them. So without further ado, here are the responses to the 3 questions we did not get to:
speech analytics

Why Does Your Contact Center Need Speech Analytics?

There is a lot of information out there about speech analytics and how it can benefit contact centers, but what is it exactly and what value does it bring to the customer experience? In simple terms, speech analytics provides one view into the voice of the customer. It lets you “listen” to EVERY call – and analyze EVERY call. Sounds better than having to take a sampling and hoping you get the right ones to give you a full perspective, right? Now you no longer need to rely on managers to manually evaluate calls to identify performance improvement opportunities. And you get near real time insights from customers that gives you an understanding of how you can improve specific interactions.
Improving Agent Experience and Engagement

Agents are the most critical resource in a contact center and yet the hardest to retain as evident with high attrition rates. As per the NICE inContact ICMI survey 25% of agents left the company in the past 12 months; 20% of agents left the contact center but stayed within the company; and 18% of agents changed positions in the contact center. Investing in AX has risen as one of the top priorities contact center leaders are undertaking to engage, motivate and most importantly retain agents.
