Knowledge Management in Contact Centers

Challenges in the contact center

Contact centers have to become value centers. They need contact center software that can help the business improve customer support while decreasing operational and support costs. You can address the top challenges facing contact centers today by choosing the right contact center software solution.

  • Improve customer experience and loyalty.
  • Do more with less, enhancing contact center performance and sales, while controlling customer service costs.
  • Improve operational metrics within and across all interaction channels that are aligned with the goals of the contact center. Examples include number of interactions handled by agents (e.g., contacts per agent-month), First Contact Resolution (FCR), Average Handle Time (AHT), Total Handle Time (THT), call wrap-up time, Average Speed of Answer (ASA), call abandonment rate, IVR completion rate, number of escalations, service level compliance rate, etc.
  • Enable intelligent upsell and cross-sell to turn your contact center from a cost center into a profit center.
  • Provide multiple interaction channels to customers and offer web self-service, live chat, and email beside traditional phone and paper communication.
  • Offer convenient, consistent service through all channels. In short, provide omnichannel customer service.
  • Create a complete view of the customer at every interaction point.
  • Manage service levels across all channels.
  • Ensure “best practice” process standardization across channels and agents.
