Achieve Big Success in your Small Contact Center
All contact centers have challenges. While larger centers certainly don’t have it easier than their smaller counterparts, they do often have more resources available to them. So what does a small-to-medium sized contact center do when it wants to “look” bigger? What do you need when size matters? How do you compete against larger companies with more money and more tools?
Join ICMI and Lantronix to learn the answer! You will hear how people, process, and technology can effectively be leveraged in your small-to- medium sized contact center to give you a competitive advantage.
During this webinar you will learn techniques to:
• Leverage knowledge to increase web self-service
• Personalize service with a unified customer profile
• Use analytics to improve customer service, and
• Provide emerging channel customer support
ICMI will provide innovative best practices and Lantronix will share real-life examples of how they’ve used technology to improve both the agent and the customer experience.
Having limited resources does not mean limited results. With a little creativity and some focused investment, a small-to-medium sized contact center can achieve big success.
