Put automation technology to effective use in the contact center

Sponsored by SearchCRM

This chapter is included in the The Multichannel mandate: Ready, set, automate E-Book.

Customers get frustrated when they're forced to repeat information to contact center agents or are sent to the wrong department. And that's not just on the phone anymore. Customers use any number of communication channels to reach out to companies -- whether it's by smartphone, text, chat or social media. Automation technology helps organizations tie it all together -- and get a jump on customer service problems. Plus, the technology can help improve the quality and speed of service and shape the efficient, scalable contact center that today's multichannel environment demands.

In this e-book chapter, CRM expert Scott Sachs explores the various automation technologies organizations need for a cost-effective contact center. First, he outlines the nuts-and-bolts technology needed for a solid contact center infrastructure that can respond to shifting business demands. Next, he looks at staffing and training tools that help effectively manage a crack team. SearchCRM editors round out the chapter with stories on self-service and knowledge base software.
