Improving Contact Center ROI Starts at the Top

With the NFL season wrapping up, many teams are reflecting on why their seasons ended early. This evaluation process starts at the top with ownership and management, as these higher-ups look at acquiring the right coaches and players—leading to the team’s future success.

Along the same lines in a contact center, it’s essential that agents and managers are supported with the leadership and tools they need to thrive. Rather than the C-suite simply telling agents to “step up their games,” the C-suite has to provide contact center agents and managers with top-notch solutions. In other words, a commitment to improving contact center services ROI has to be made at every level of an organization, especially including the C-suite.

After the C-suite agrees to place a stronger emphasis on enhancing its contact center, the next logical step involves identifying where they should turn to for help. Thankfully, there are some all-inclusive solutions available to help companies maximize the ROI of their contact center services. For instance, there are one-stop-shop contact center vendors that help streamline operations from initial strategizing to ongoing maintenance and management.

InfoCision, for example, provides solutions that free businesses from the hassle of relying on numerous providers for the capabilities they need. All of our facilities are equipped with the latest software and hardware to enable our Communicators to make the highest quality calls and, thus, maximize results. Here are only a few of the sophisticated call center technologies and solutions that we provide—significantly helping an enterprise’s bottom line:

  • Call blending: This system maximizes call center productivity, allowing agents to effectively make outbound calls when inbound activity dips.
  • Skills-based routing: Our skills-based routing system matches our Communicators with inbound and outbound calls based on the program-specific training they receive and the proficiency they boast for particular types of calls.
  • Email and fax on-demand: Our multimedia blending capabilities allow us to integrate channels such as email, chat and fax into our call center activities. As a result, agents can respond to customers’ needs far more quickly and efficiently.

Will your C-suite start to focus on improving contact center services ROI? Like the NFL team revamping its roster for a new season, your company’s future may depend on whether the C-suite gives agents and managers the cutting-edge solutions they need.
