Contact Center: 3 Steps to Survive the Holiday Rush

The rush of holiday season is just around the corner - companies are bracing themselves for the deluge of traffic in the lead up to the end of the year and the busiest shopping period on the planet.

Even with the most sophisticated planning and science around expected peak traffic and sustained loads, there will always be that one scenario you could not foresee ... or could you? What if you had the ability to accurately simulate the waves of traffic ahead of time? Being able to simulate the stress put on your systems allows for identification and rectification of any issues, before it is crunch time.

This session will share 3 important steps your organization can take in the lead up to the holiday rush to ensure you not only survive, but thrive.
