We’re always excited to hear about the latest technology advancements in the call center and customer service industry. And luckily, there are plenty of them at the moment. The industry’s leading companies are always competing with their rivals to rule the market. And in order to rule the market, they need to continuously innovate their technologies and processes.
As we all know, call centers are basically data centers. And as data continually flows through call centers, keeping data clean and accurate is not just an option for any forward-thinking call center, it’s a must. Leveraging an up-to-date customer service database, for example, will allow you to better understand your customers’ behaviors and needs, and thus help you increase your customer experience.
As call centers have a bad reputation for being soul-killing environments to work in, it’s no surprise that agent retention has always been a challenge for customer service departments. While stereotypes are often exaggerated, let’s face it: call center life is not easy. But is there a way to make call centers more attractive to job seekers? Luckily, there is.
To outsource or not to outsource: that is the question Managing Directors often ask when deciding whether to rely on outsourced call center services or keep them in-house. If you are considering outsourcing your customer service activities, this will be required reading for you!
The internet has revolutionized how businesses communicate with their customers like nothing before. There’s no doubt that the last 15 years have seen an astonishing explosion regarding internet access. Indeed, the evolution of the Internet has completely changed our world, giving businesses the opportunity to now use multiple platforms to connect with their customers anytime, anywhere.
