Technology is evolving at an astonishing rate. However, the solutions and tools used in contact centers haven't kept pace, which can have serious implications for customer experience (CX). According to a recent CX study by CCW Digital:

    • Fewer than 25% of businesses can handle complex interactions in digital channels

    • Only 3% of customers are "extremely happy" with the experiences they receive

    • 54% of customers consider switching to a competitor based on a bad customer experience

These statistics amplify the importance of embracing modern contact center technology that makes it easier to automate, orchestrate, and integrate massive amounts of data, processes, and systems into a single, customer-centric view.

The Most Important Technology for Contact Centers

The most successful contact centers incorporate a variety of smart technologies to elevate customer experience, including:

    • Artificial Intelligence (AI) to provide context-based "next best actions" to agents

    • Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to eliminate error-prone manual processes

    • Dynamic Case Management to provide a holistic view of customers and understand who they are and what they need

    • Enterprise Low-Code to build custom solutions fast

    • Omni-channel capabilities to provide seamless customer interactions
