Buying Solutions for Your Contact Center: The Good News, Bad News, and the Bridge to Connect Them

The conventional solution process actually creates problems for contact center executives.  It may generate excitement over particular innovations, but it may not confirm about fitness for specific applications. It may not provide an actionable, valid blueprint for actually making the most of the new technology.

Ultimately, it may not inspire contact center executives to take action. And that is a problem: for as much as they cannot afford to be wrong about the solutions they buy, contact center leaders definitely cannot afford to sit on their hands. The needs are too great and the stakes are too high for indecision to govern the function.

Special Report - Increasing Humanity With Chatbots

Special Report - Increasing Humanity With Chatbots

Chatbots  are frequently derided as glitchy  and inconveniencing to customers, but as the technology grows increasingly sophisticated, so does its value proposition. CX pundits  often regurgitate that the best function of a chatbot  is to handle  rote, repetitive customer  questions like FAQs and order  status requests so that human agents can handle  the complex scenarios  like technical  troubleshooting, but that grossly oversimplifies what chatbots can do.

In fact, there are a rising number  of use cases where  chatbots can process  queries  more effectively than a human ever could  given their ability to make split-second decisions  using data to provide a personalized customer  experience.

Chat used to be limited to a pop-up  window triggered when a visitor first lands on the company's homepage, but given the nature of asynchronous messaging through email, instant messaging and social media, where  communication between brands  and customers  happens on and off as and when the customer  needs it, companies are under  increasing pressure to scale chat capabilities in multiple channels. Arguably, the first wave of chatbots was designed to do just that- scaling chatcost-effectively, but without  consideration for UX design.

Today, chatbots  are deployed not only as a value-added user experience for the omnichannel customer, but also as tools to simplify the employee experience on the backend.
