  • Data everywhere but no single view of the customer Recorded: Jun 13 2017 41 mins
    David Rowlands - 8x8 UK, Contact Centre Director.
    Businesses today have a huge amount of data at their disposal, but are they making it work for them? With the typical business storing information from various sources in different places, the challenge is collating this into a usable form that is also cost-efficient.

    This is crucial, as having genuine insights into your customers’ behaviour is critical in understanding how to delight them and keep them as brand advocates. What you don’t know, you can’t change, and this session will explain how analysing existing data streams can find solutions to problems you may not have realised existed.

    - How to make your analytics work harder for you
    - What the data you already have can teach you about your customers, and ultimately improve service
    - How to make sure your data analytics is cost effective

  • UCaaS: Do You Really Need a Hybrid Cloud Strategy? Recorded: Aug 16 2016 59 mins
    Angela York, Director of Marketing, 8x8, Irwin Lazar, VP & Director, Nemertes, Jerry Howard, VP of IT, Irving Materials
    Enterprises are increasingly considering Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) as the basis for their communications infrastructure strategy going forward. But some have been reluctant to commit to a pure cloud approach from the start, so they pursue a hybrid strategy—with some users migrated to the cloud while others remain on legacy premises systems. Is this really the best strategy? Or does hybrid offer the worst of both worlds—partial outsourcing while still requiring significant internal resources to manage legacy gear and its integration with the UCaaS service?

    This webinar will lay out the advantages and the industry trends toward UC in the cloud, and will feature expert opinions on the issues that a hybrid approach may add to a UC strategy. You’ll come away with an understanding of why hybrid cloud isn’t necessarily the safe or easy choice, and whether a migration to 100% UCaaS can be a better option.

    Join industry experts & a seasoned IT VP as they explain and debate:
    Hybrid vs. UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service)
    Potential issues and trade-offs of a hybrid approach
    Best practices for moving 100% to a UCaaS solution
    Real-world feedback from an IT executive on moving to UCaaS

  • 8 Criteria for Enterprise-Grade Cloud Communications Recorded: Jun 6 2016 56 mins
    Max Ball
    What does it mean to have an enterprise-grade cloud communications solution? Many providers may claim to offer it, but not all can deliver. And if always-on, reliable and global communications are mission-critical for your business, you need to ensure your cloud provider is making the "grade".

    In this complimentary webinar, we will discuss 8 standard elements that all companies should look out for when exploring a cloud communications solution, including:

    The flexibility to extend international services and global reach
    Potential risks of downtime and non-compliance when solutions are not enterprise-grade
    The ability to integrate with contact center, CRM and productivity applications

    Who should attend:
    CIOs, Directors of IT or Infrastructure
    Anyone interested in unifying their communications and collaboration infrastructure onto a single, secure, reliable platform – simply
    Those seeking a way to replace outdated or disparate legacy systems across multiple locations.
  • Where the Customer Journey Meets the Agent Journey Recorded: Mar 17 2016 62 mins
    Max Ball, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, 8x8 & Aphrodite Brinsmead, Ovum Research
    Your customer’s experience with your support organization has a huge impact on their impression of your brand, their loyalty, and on how much they will spend with you through the years. Most companies are aware of the need to improve their customer journeys but they don’t have the information they need to know what to do.

    In addition, your agent’s journey impacts your customers as well. How efficient is your agent? How much time do they spend looking at the wrong screens, trying to keep the customer busy while he scrambles to find the right information? What is the mindset of your agent when they talk to a customer? Are the focused on helping the customer or scrambling in the background to get to the information they need?

    Businesses should be tracking and managing both journeys in order to become more successful. But this is easier said than done.

    Join Aphrodite Brinsmead of Ovum Research while she share insights into the customer journey from her new research looking into the customer journey, what causes trouble and what has less of an impact. Max Ball from 8x8 will join to share some new innovations that make it easier to track the customer journey and to help ensure your agents are as efficient as possible.
