Self-Service Maturity Model: Gaining a Competitive Advantage from Self-Service

Inference Solutions | 8/27/2020 12:38:58 PM

Written By: DMG Consulting LLC <BR><BR>
Voice self-service has changed dramatically since voice response units (VRUs) first came on the scene in the early 1980’s. The self-service market has grown and expanded during the past 40 years, and it’s time for organizations to adopt the current generation of solutions as an important step in their digital transformation. The goal today is to provide a personalized and intelligent self-service experience cost effectively. It’s also important to deliver a consistent and high level of customer service regardless of the channel in which customers elect to interact. The most sophisticated self-service is provided by a relatively new IT sector called intelligent virtual agents (IVAs). IVAs use a natural language conversational approach, enhanced by machine learning and intelligent augmentation (IA), to deliver a personalized customer experience in any channel (voice, web, chat, instant messaging (IM)/short message service (SMS), email, etc.). The question is not whether you are ready to migrate from your existing self-service solutions to IVA-supported voice and digital self-service, but how quickly you can effectively adopt the new generation of AI-enabled self-service technology. Read this white paper to see where your organization currently stands in its self-service maturity evolution and the steps needed to make the transition to IVA successful.

Written By: Joseph Williams, Analyst, BC Strategies<BR><BR>Ask your CMO or your CRO whether customer success is key to thriving in this digital era. Then ask them how artificial intelligence is going to redefine how customers can achieve success.

Major advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Speech Recognition and Natural Language Processing have given organizations that need to automate self-service a giant leap forward. For the first time ever, companies of all sizes can now use Virtual Agents to reduce costs and improve the customer experience. Unfortunately, these advancements have also led to some confusion in the market. The terminology surrounding Virtual Agents can be confusing and it’s often challenging for an organization to understand exactly what can be accomplished today. Buyers also need a framework to help them decide which functionality should be implemented in order to meet their most pressing business needs.

3 Smart Strategies for Empowering an At-Home CC Workforce

Serenova | 2/26/2020 12:15:34 PM

Remote call center staffs are becoming increasingly popular. A recent survey of 90 US contact center organizations indicated that 70% are expanding their work-at-home programs. It’s easy to see why. Managers can more easily match agent supply to demand, reducing the need for onsite agents. Organizations can save money by downsizing brick and mortar locations. Plus, the call center can tap into a larger pool of qualified agents who need the flexibility that at-home work provides.

Yet with all these benefits come new challenges. Managing and motivating remote agents can be more challenging than doing the same in house. Plus, you need to ensure your at-home agents are equipped with reliable Internet and voice connectivity – even though your IT department isn’t onsite with them.

Fortunately you can apply proven strategies to address these challenges. Download our guide on Smart Strategies for Enabling an At-Home Workforce to understand the best ways to 1) Manage the quality of agent interactions, 2) Improve agent engagement with gamification, and 3) Ensure network performance and reliability.
