3 Ways to Break Through Barriers to Omnichannel Success

Published By: ttec     Published Date: Jul 24, 2019
Omnichannel is one of those words everyone uses, but few use correctly. It’s not another word for multichannel. It’s a different state of existence. In our experience, multichannel is the ability to interact with customers across many different channels, but not necessarily in a cohesive fashion. As new channels become available, they are “bolted on” to existing customer experience infrastructure such as CRM or customer support systems. Too frequently, the management of these channels becomes siloed (web versus in-store sales, for example). The effect of this from the customer experience standpoint can be disjointed and jarring. For example, the resolution of an issue following a customer conversation with an associate in the contact center may not be reflected when the customer goes online or into a store. Yet the ability to offer multichannel service experience is table stakes for today’s business. If you’re not available in the channels where customers want you to be, you cease to b

4 Ways Successful Brands Strike a Balance Between Artificial and Human Intelligence

Published By: ttec     Published Date: Nov 08, 2019
Today’s most successful brands blend Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation with human intelligence (HUMINT) to augment their customer and employee experience strategies in the contact center – and as a result, they’re winning over customers. While some tasks are perfect for automation – think about those mundane, repetitive, low-value actions – the truth is, AI simply cannot replicate the “human touch.” Understanding the strengths of each kind of intelligence (AI + HUMIT), and using them to cooperatively deliver exceptional employee and customer experiences is a pivotal competitive differentiator for brands. These leading brands agree there are four specific ways to drive the greatest outcomes – and we go into detail about them in all our Contact Center Collaborative Intelligence strategy guide.

Pairing SD-WAN and UCaaS/CCaaS To Maximize Performance, Productivity, and Savings

Published By: Masergy     Published Date: Nov 04, 2019
Driven by the need to save money, improve agility, and take rapid advantage of emerging technologies to improve internal collaboration and customer engagement, organizations are quickly adopting Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) and Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS). UCaaS and CCaaS enable businesses to deliver a modern communications environment, without large capital investment, and in a manner that provides for rapid scaling, easy expansion into new sites and geographies, and deployment flexibility. Unfortunately, many enterprise networks are not optimized to deliver the performance and reliability required to support cloud-based applications, including UCaaS and CCaaS. As a result, IT leaders are rapidly adopting Software-Defined Wide-Area Network (SD-WAN) technologies. With SD-WAN’s ability to virtualize underlying network services and to build enterprise-grade WANs using both public (Internet) connectivity and private WAN connectivity, IT leaders can leverage it to su

eBook: The Five Steps to an ROI-Focused CX Program

Published By: InMoment     Published Date: Oct 14, 2019
R O I : T H E H O LY GRAIL OF CX Return on Investment (ROI) is the holy grail of customer (CX), employee (EX) and market (MX) experiences. Every practitioner wants to prove it’s real, but the quest to find it can be fraught with peril and, in the end, many businesses end up believing it’s completely fictional. This ebook will delve into the mysteries of the financial impact of experience programs and how you can implement and measure experience initiatives designed to deliver ROI. Why is the ROI of experiences so hard to establish? The answer is twofold: 1. ROI is not a single number; it’s wide-ranging and can be found in any part of the enterprise. 2. Many businesses focus too much on the end goal (ROI), but fail to establish a program with the necessary elements required for success.

Your Checklist for Evaluating Global Managed Services, Including Cloud Services

Published By: Virtela Communications, Inc.     Published Date: Oct 12, 2011
Multinational companies (MNCs) are facing a unique combination of escalating customer, competitive and operational pressures which are forcing them to fundamentally change the way they do business and manage their IT infrastructures supporting network, security and mobility needs. Lack of IT resources, limited capex and more complex global implementations are driving an increasing proportion of MNCs to offload, or 'out-task', various aspects of their day-to-day management responsibilities to skilled third-parties that can help perform these functions well.

Connected Planning at RSA

Published By: Anaplan     Published Date: Sep 11, 2019
Prior to implementing the Anaplan platform, RSA Group had a tedious spreadsheet-based, nine-month planning cycle riddled with data quality issues, which was compounded by siloed, functional fragmentation across the company. As a result, the finance team was spending a significant amount of time cleaning data rather than analyzing it to provide insight to key stakeholders throughout the business. Using the Anaplan platform, RSA Group reduced their financial planning process from nine months to five months. The workforce planning team experienced a 50% improvement in productivity. The business can now own their connected plans, resulting in improved decision support to business users, as well as improved customer service and financial results.

The Case for Grid Modernization

Published By: Infosys     Published Date: Nov 04, 2019
Renewable energy is increasingly affordable, good for the environment and here to stay. The problem is that the nation's electrical grid isn't ready for it. The grid was not built for the kind of fluctuating supply that comes from distributed energy generation. In addition to the increased volatility associated with distributed energy resources, utilities are confronted with increased demands on the grid from electrification and digitization of the economy. Customer expectations for consumer-grade digital experiences and increased emphasis on safety and reliability are only increasing.

10 Considerations for a Cloud Procurement

Published By: Amazon Web Services APAC     Published Date: Sep 19, 2019
Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers scalable, cost-efficient cloud services that public sector customers can use to meet mandates, reduce costs, drive efficiencies, and accelerate innovation. The procurement of an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) cloud is unlike traditional technology purchasing. Traditional public sector procurement and contracting approaches that are designed to purchase products, such as hardware and related software, can be inconsistent with cloud services (like IaaS). A failure to modernize contracting and procurement approaches can reduce the pool of competitors and inhibit customer ability to adopt and leverage cloud technology.
