  • Exploring the CX Dichotomy: Improve the Customer Experience While Reducing Costs Recorded: Nov 8 2017 57 mins
    Chris du Toit, Chief Marketing Officer, Jacada
    Delivering an outstanding Customer Experience while maintaining or reducing costs is a dichotomy – On the one hand you’re under pressure to improve both self-service and contact center efficiency, and on the other hand you have a mandate to improve the customer experience across a number of metrics such as NPS and more. These goals are seemingly at odds and makes your role as a CX practitioner all the more difficult.

    Join this webinar to explore the CX challenges organizations are facing today and how to most effectively accelerate your CX initiatives. The discussion will cover three primary topic areas that are hot in the industry: (1) How to improve self-service utilizing Visual IVR, Natural Language and chatbots, (2) Techniques for improving contact center efficiency while removing the digital to voice disconnect, and (3) How to optimize your back office processes with Robotic Process Automation.

    This is an interactive session and participants are encouraged to submit questions.

    Gamification has been the hot new topic within the contact center world for the past year or two. Most all contact center leaders understand the appeal of incorporating game mechanics into their operations, and can visualize the excitement and subsequent employee engagement the games will promote. Yet most contact centers still haven't implemented gamification, due to the limited, real world ROI information available.
