  • WAN Economics: The Business of Disrupting Your WAN
    WAN Economics: The Business of Disrupting Your WAN John Burke, CIO and Principal Research Analyst, Nemertes Research Sep 19 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Digital Transformation initiatives often hinge on providing new and exciting services to staff or to customers across the WAN and the Internet. Engineering a WAN for continuous and more rapid change is key to enabling ongoing transformational efforts. And yet, for most companies, the WAN is among the pieces of the infrastructure hardest to change, both for technological reasons and due to the constraints on link provisioning by carriers.

    This webinar will focus on how SD-WAN provides the WAN that Digital Transformation efforts require, through its combination of centralized policy management, automation, zero-touch provisioning, and the ability to work with many links across differing media from different providers.

    Moreover, all of this puts renewed focus on choice of platform and on the economics of wide-area networking: How much does it cost to connect a site to a WAN? What technologies are easiest, fastest, best performing? Which vendors provide the best technology, service, and value?

    The webinar will also debut data from the Nemertes 2018-19 WAN Economics Research Study, including MPLS, Ethernet, wavelength, and Internet service costs; enterprise users’ ratings of their connectivity providers and data on their ability to deliver, and deliver on time; and a peek at the updated Nemertes Enterprise SD-WAN cost model.
  • Why brands like Amazon are using “dumb” bots for smart service
    Why brands like Amazon are using “dumb” bots for smart service Abinash Tripathy Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Helpshift Sep 20 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Reportedly, 44% of Americans would rather scrub a toilet than call customer support. And heeding that cry for help back in 2016 or so, companies across the land stepped up to the plate, taking customer service from the phone to texting and messaging with AI-powered, NLP-reliant smart chatbots that could tell jokes, offer small talk, place taco orders, and more.

    Where those messenger bots fell down, though, was in actually understanding customer intent and delivering on-point customer service. So companies were left with frustrated customers who’d still rather get a root canal than talk on the phone, but left with a broken messenger-based solution that only made the experience worse.

    The answer: Make bots "dumber," to make customer service smarter. Simpler rules-based chatbots are easy to implement, easy to use, 99-percent effective web and mobile-based messenger apps that don't try to hold conversations — they just solve customer service issues, fast.

    To learn more about why companies like Amazon are dumping the NLP bots and going all-in on a new generation of rules-based chatbots, don’t miss this VB Live event!

    You’ll learn:
    * The difference between NLP and rules-based bots and why it matters
    * Why companies like Amazon are turning away from natural language processing-driven bots to rules-based bots
    * How to deliver mobile and web-based customer service that works, using the right bots.
    * How rules-based bots make the customer journey more effective

    * Abinash Tripathy, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Helpshift
    * Mitch Lee, Manager, Credit Karma and Co-Founder, Penny

    Mobilizing Your Workforce - How mobile apps are changing the way we connect Brandon Rowe, Sr Manager - Product Marketing, OpenText Oct 30 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Let’s face it … we can no longer abide by the working rules of yesteryear. The new generation of contact center agents have grown up using mobile devices, and that means companies need the ability to quickly communicate with their agents and provide a real-time, two-way communication stream. To be successful, organizations need to engage their employees with a WFM mobile app. Empowering your agents with a mobile app leads to a better work-life balance, enhanced communications, and a streamlined scheduling process.

    This webinar will explore the impact a mobile app can have on your contact center agents, business, and customer experience.
  • In WFM Apps We Trust!

    Attracting and retaining agents can be a cumbersome task for contact centers. In many ways, they (agents) expect a blending of their work and personal lives. A WFM mobile app keeps agents engaged, provides a better work-life balance, and ensures time management and collaboration, while giving supervisors and analysts the ability to quickly identify problems and take action to ensure proper staffing and service levels are met.

    Join us as we discuss how intraday management with a mobile app is helping contact centers to connect and empower their agents.
  • How a Mobile App Enhances Your Contact Center Strategy

    During this webinar we will demonstrate how to use the mobile app from a managerial and agent point of view, and show how agents can view/change schedules, manage preferences, receive push notifications, shift trade, and more.
