  • 5 Omnichannel Lessons Learned the Hard Way
    5 Omnichannel Lessons Learned the Hard Way
    Scott Sachs (SJS Solutions); Brian Spraetz (Five9); Roy Atkinson (Moderator) Recorded: Feb 18 2020 61 mins
    There is no doubt that your organization should provide a consistent customer experience across all communication channels. Fielding customer inquiries and providing information in multiple, disconnected channels can contribute to errors, miscommunication, and a disrupted customer journey that forces customers to repeat information. As a result, this can contribute to an increase in customer churn. Omnichannel, however, can create connected customer journeys and exceptional customer experiences.

    In this webinar, you will learn about some omnichannel pitfalls you can avoid, including:
    • The wrong technology (added on top of legacy systems)
    • Agents not cross-trained, leaving channels unstaffed or unavailable
    • Inaccurate metrics and KPIs
    • Insufficient or disorganized customer information

    Join us to gain valuable knowledge so that you don’t have to learn your lessons the hard way.

    In the last decade, it has been a common axiom of cyber security that it is not a question of if an organization’s defenses will be breached, but only of when. And while cyber-attacks and data breaches are always business disrupting, they can also be very costly. Therefore, Time to Detection and Time to Effective Respond have become critical measurements for the success of any organization’s cyber security program.
    This is the second webinar in a 2-part series where we'll delve deeper into the issues and processes of intruder detection, from first response through intruder eviction and remediation.

  • Breathe Life into your Legacy Service Desk
    Breathe Life into your Legacy Service Desk
    Peter Beasley, President Netwatch Solutions Recorded: Feb 11 2020 59 mins
    Many enterprises still enjoy success with legacy service desk solutions such as Footprints, Track-IT, and Remedy. Many DevOps and software driven enterprises use Jira effectively to manage their service desks. But these solutions, often perpetually licensed, may be customized to meet many internal business needs – but do not have the latest configuration management capabilities like predictive analytics, dependency mapping, gamification, auto-discovery and robust change management workflows. Many lack a CMDB (configuration management database).
    So … wouldn’t it be great to have a CMDB without the hassle of changing your entire service desk functions?
    Plus, most CMDB’s today require migrating from a fully amortized, perpetually licensed solution to a recurring, SAAS solution.
    This session:
    •Lists reasons to keep your legacy service desk
    •Identifies key intersection points on how a traditional service desk can be complemented with a modern CMDB
    •Points-out what deficiencies may hurt the most
    •Emphasizes the plusses often out-weigh the negatives.
    Keeping your legacy service desk may make sense for many enterprises when you find options to extend their capabilities. Learn how.
  • 5 Reasons Why Remote Support and Access Management Are Critical
    5 Reasons Why Remote Support and Access Management Are Critical
    Josh Streets (Scoreboard Group); Bryan Hood (BeyondTrust); Roy Atkinson (moderator) Recorded: Feb 11 2020 57 mins
    The modern organization needs to provide a reliable, secure way for customers, vendors, and remote employees to both access the resources they need to do their work, and to receive support where they are, when they need it. HDI’s annual research shows that Remote Control is the number 3 “must-have” for the support center. The research also shows that 39% of support tickets come from external customers and end-users.

    In this webinar, you will learn why it is important to:
    • Provide a mobile workforce with access and support
    • Grant external third parties such as vendors and auditors access to the specific resources they need—and only those resources
    • Provide full support to end users on multiple types of devices
    • Ensure the security of your organization’s data
    • Minimize risk from unnecessary privileged accounts
  • Understanding Change, Release and Configuration
    Understanding Change, Release and Configuration
    Beverly Weed Schertzer, ITSM Business Strategist, edifyIT LLC Recorded: Feb 7 2020 49 mins
    ITSM is dependent on people in the organization to understand it and most people don’t get it. ITSM isn’t a choice it’s a requirement and businesses are losing sight of the core concept of what ITSM practices deliver.

    Understanding Change, Release and Configuration is about providing clarity to help deepen one’s understanding of a major area in ITSM; Change, Release & Configuration Coordination. ITSM is a fundamental aspect in business and its requirements to develop a program that works, and it's sometimes it's more than the common ITSM frameworks can achieve.

    ITSM isn’t a framework to implement, it’s a business function to effectively and efficiently deliver high-value service to customers. Technology is the vehicle to deliver this value, and people are the driving force to ensure the vehicle is controlled, managed, and maintained. Change, Release, and Configuration (CRC) are continuous tasks involved with service delivery.

    In this webinar, Beverly talks about the effects of framework thinking and presents on the importance of understanding CRC in ITSM to produce a high performing service delivery organization.

  • Challenges in Quality Management: Finding the Scope
    Challenges in Quality Management: Finding the Scope
    Nelson Giron (Clarabridge); Roy Atkinson (Moderator) Mar 18 2020 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Quality Management and Quality Assurance (QM and QA) are important elements of any contact center. The tasks involved can be time consuming and difficult. Traditional methods have focused on the phone conversation as the primary—or even sole—source of input. Scorecards have been built focused on limited data and are producing only partial views of the quality of interactions.

    Modern contact centers are using omnichannel solutions to respond to customer needs, and so multiple sources of Quality Management data are available but might be overlooked or considered unusable because of the dated tools and methods contact centers are using.

    How can Quality Management take advantage of these varied sources of data to produce better results for the contact center and for customers?

    This webinar will cover:
    • How omnichannel communication changes the scope of QM data
    • How advanced analytics are no longer optional, but are a necessity
    • Why and how doing better QM benefits both contact centers and customers
    • How advanced technologies such as Natural Language Processing (NLP) and sentiment analysis can assist
