The existing upgrade paths from legacy PBX and ACD suppliers make it difficult for contact center executives to contemplate the future of customer service on their own terms. If your ACD-based contact center has become a road block for adding capacity or adding channels such as social media and mobile, you might want to think about making the switch to a SIP-based contact center solution. SIP delivers two important advantages over legacy switching: 1. SIP is based on open standards, so you can choose hardware and software that is best suited for your environment. 2. SIP’s capability extends beyond voice to new media types such as mobile, social media and video. SIP-based contact centers provide a roadmap to sophisticated features without the complexity and expense of traditional proprietary ACDs. Learn more about how to build the next-generation customer service platform.

Enterprise Workload Management gets the right work to the right person at the right time, eliminating the outdated manual distribution of work model. Enterprise Workload Management finally gives organizations the ability to correlate the work that customer service interactions create in the front office -- with the best resource within the organization required to complete that work in the back office. Enterprise Workload Management ensures that the highest priority work is being handled by the right resource, and gives managers real-time visibility into when the work will be completed, as well as reports that show the outcomes of the work. Customers get notified when an order or application is processed instead of waiting to hear or having to repeated call back. Employees get specific coaching and training plans based on the results of their work.

The customer service contact center thrives on performance metrics. These metrics provide operational insight into the efficiency of the customer service process, including how effectively customer service representatives are performing their duties — as well as how well customers are being served. Many performance metrics are as old as the contact center industry itself and are still in widespread use today. The purpose of this paper is not to disparage existing contact center performance metrics or to suggest that these metrics no longer matter. The authors acknowledge that the metrics that matter to the reader’s contact center are the ones that make sense in that particular situation. Rather, this paper explores some of the emerging metrics that specifically acknowledge and address the changing attitudes, objectives and definition of the contemporary contact center.

Contact centers have long played a vital role in the insurance industry. Prospects and customers use them to get product information and quotes and then submit applications. Insurance agents and advisors rely on contact centers to tap into expertise and handle business and technical issues. Policyholders and members make inquiries or changes to their policies, or conduct financial transactions. Claimants call in to report accidents and check on the status of their claims. The list could go on, but the meaning is clear. Contact centers are major contributors to many key parts of the insurance business, especially the parts that require direct interaction with customers or agents. As a result, contact centers now play a critical role in an insurer’s journey toward becoming more customer-centric.
