Making the Contact Centre a Strategic Business Player: Contact Centre Trends By Industry
Interestingly though according to a recent Customer Contact Week Australia report, “phone still remains the top channel (74%) where majority of customer interactions are happening. It’s interesting to note though that other channels such as web, email, chatbots and social media now handle one quarter of all interactions – a significant figure by all measures.”
This statistic has lead Deloitte UK to conclude that far from forcing the contact centre onto its death bed, digital channels are actually giving contact centres a new lease on life. As transcational enquiries move to self-serve channels, contact centre agents are freed up to provide a more valuable service to customers.
This shift in emphasis has imporant implication for how we operate our contact centres, with contact centres moving towards being hubs of expert communication, capable of delivering insight rather than information and adding substantive value to the customer experience across traditional and digital channels.
With this in mind we take a look at how three sectors, Banking, Marketing and Human Resources and Procurement are harnessing call centre technologies and transformation initiatives to optimise processes and deliver improved CX and UX. Read on to learn more.
