Roger Lee, Director Customer Success, GridspaceRecorded: Feb 21 201962 mins
Ring in 2019 … Join us for a discussion on how machine learning analytics drives quality assurance.
Here are a few interesting statistics from a study by Siegel and Gale entitled “Simplified CX is Worth $86B. Are You Getting Your Share?”
*64% of consumers will pay more for simpler experiences
*61% of consumers are more likely to recommend a brand because it’s simpler to use
Imagine having machine learning to process and interpret large volumes of data, especially all of your calls -- which drive action through decisions and predictions … on a scale and speed of data consumption that we as humans can’t match. Machine learning is dynamic. It learns and becomes “smarter” the more data it processes.
Forget the debate on statistically significant sample size, and begin to analyze the total population of calls with machine learning. This will better drive targeted action for coaching, developing staff, and identifying broken processes. Machine learning helps us understand “what was said” as well as considering “tone” and “sentiment” (or emotions), all while helping with compliance, security, regulations, etc., and allowing you to focus on the customer experience.
During this webcast, Roger Lee, Director Customer Success for Gridspace, will share his thoughts on how we as contact center leaders, process improvement experts, and quality monitoring gurus can use machine learning speech analytics to improve both the customer and employee experience.
He will provide action-oriented tips to streamline your quality monitoring program:
1. Why now?
2. Why automate and how?
3. How to utilize the analyses from analytics-driven QA for both contact center and enterprise.

Bots, artificial intelligence, and messaging — cost-effective, easy-to-implement automation technology —- is gaining a major foothold in customer service organizations, and the impact is palpable. Contact centers are on track to shrink by 50 percent in the next three years as routine tasks are taken over by faster, efficiency-saving bots that can triage requests, boost customer satisfaction, and offer an 8.6 percent increase in profit margin per customer.
These technologies are also making it easy to tap into the gig economy, which is producing a growing supply of tech-savvy labor for companies that also saves costs. For workers, it means flexible arrangements with low barriers to entry, plus more satisfying employment, now that the grunt work has been eliminated by automation.

Money is pouring into esports. There are more players, more games, more viewers, and bigger prize pools — and companies are taking note. Investment is coming from all angles, and everyone is looking for a piece of the pie. But many of the existing monetization models of esports only seek to follow the tried and true formats from traditional sports.
There is a lot for the video game industry to learn from the legacy sports broadcast model; but there’s a catch: The video games industry uses some of the world’s most advanced interactive technology to create some of the world’s most compelling entertainment experiences.
So why would we just do it the same way as before? The answer? We probably won’t. Not for long at least.
In this special session, our panel of experts will unpack the old and the new of esports, and explore where genuine innovation may come from in the future. We’ll discuss how to get the most out of traditional methods, and how some companies are experimenting with new approaches to engaging with audiences and driving revenue.
Register now to join us for free.
Attend this webinar and learn:
* How the current esports model stacks up against traditional sports, and where the money is coming from now
* The new technologies that will change the existing business model

Manually personalizing your digital experience for every website visitor is near impossible.

Smarter, automated, and more scalable technologies are necessary to both satisfy today’s relevance-seeking customers and stay ahead of competition.
This webinar reveals best practices on how to inject relevance and personalization into your website experience. We’ll demonstrate how companies are using AI-powered search and recommendations to leverage the intent and information behind every touch point of the web journey to drive contextual and personalized experiences that:
-Increase conversion rates by providing relevant search results
-Increase website engagement through proactive recommendations
-Drive higher customer lifetime value
-Empower your marketing team with insights on your visitors’ content consumption and trends

Having trouble with making sure all of Marketing leads are followed up on? Do you find it hard to meet your Lead SLA? Sales leaders such as yourself often put a lot of pressure on ensuring a smooth handoff between Marketing and Sales teams. Unfortunately, this firm handoff isn't the best experience for your customer.
Customer expectations in both B2B and B2C are evolving. They expect consistent communication and conversation at all stages in the buying cycle. Even before entering the Sales cycle, they want their questions answered and concerns addressed. At the same time, response rates for old communication channels are decreasing. Simply engaging customers with Drip emails isn't enough anymore. Both Marketing and Sales need to change the way they operate.
Join Hustle leaders Molly Babbington, Director of Sales, and Jonathan Gladbach, Director of Marketing to learn how they ran joint Marketing and Sales campaigns through text message with 85% response rates and 20% conversion rates to meetings.
- How to properly use SMS messaging to prospects at the very top of the funnel to quickly qualify leads and create interest.
- Ways to avoid disjointed customer experience between marketing campaigns and sales.
- Methods to successfully reactivate dead leads with a simple conversation.
Contact centers are evolving, allowing customers to self-serve more complex tasks without agent involvement. But when agents must step in, customer experience suffers due to limited access to critical information.
Join us for this live webinar as we discuss how best-in-class organizations are building a unified customer engagement center through the use of softphones and omnichannel widgets - where agents are empowered to focus on the business processes to better serve their customers.
