This is where workforce optimization solutions come in. Providing workforce management, quality management, analytics, and interaction recording solutions, regardless of whether your contact center platform is based on-premise or in the cloud, has quickly become a requirement.

The Future of Contact Centers?

The COVID-19 national emergency has changed the way contact centers work almost overnight. Facing an uncertain future, many contact centers are looking to establish a long-term work from home infrastructure to avoid the hazards of other shutdowns, increased agent turnover, confusion over what constitutes “essential businesses,” and other possible scenarios.

A long-term transition to work from home contact center operations requires a mental and technological shift. Past the basics of ensuring agents have the tools required – hardware, softphones, reliable internet connections – managers and supervisors need solutions to optimize their agents’ performance, improve the customer experience, meet their industry’s compliance needs, and more.
