Bridge the Gap or Watch Your Treasured Apps Disappear - Tony Porter - ContactCenterWorld.com Blog

Bridge the Gap or Watch Your Treasured Apps Disappear

When you next move house, imagine something bizarre happens; CDs play backwards, the TV changes channels every five seconds, and your family photo albums are mysteriously blank. This sounds like a goofy B-movie. But there’s an eerie parallel that can happen when you move to a new contact center platform or solution.

Change is Exciting

There’s always an air of optimism when companies upgrade their contact center platform, move to a new solution, merge two technology stacks or transition to the cloud.

You’ve outgrown what you owned before. And now there’s a real chance to thrive in a new environment that fits your needs today. It’s been expensive, of course. But everyone feels positive and is raring to go.

But the problems can start when you try to unpack and reassemble familiar possessions that will complete your new world … important things, like your much-loved applications.

The Full Horror Becomes Evident

You need your applications working immediately in the new environment. But they behave strangely. Key controls and features have either vanished completely, fail to work as expected, or even trigger a series of other problems.

It’s as if all that critical application behavior and functionality has fallen between the cracks during the move. Those hard-to-quantify nuances you’d delicately tuned over many years … that fitted your organization so snugly before and protected the customer experience … have vanished.

The trouble is, no-one can precisely recall how every detail worked previously, because proper documentation was never kept updated. And the people who knew how it all functioned may have left years ago. Restoring your application to how it should be is virtually impossible.

Bridge the Gap – Before you Lose Your Valuables (and Your Marbles)

Now it’s possible to avoid this scenario, keeping all your application assets – and your sanity.

Solutions and integration specialist PSS has just published an e-guide that tackles this specific issue. It’s called Contact Center Application Migration: Ensure your business-critical applications make the journey intact.

 The guide explains how it’s possible to achieve a seamless migration involving any combination of application, vendor, and version – old and new. An independent, third-party provider like PSS can bridge the gap, so everything migrates in one piece. They can bypass tricky proprietary obstacles and make the process seem effortless.

Here’s another link to your free copy of the e-guide.

How PSS Can Help

We can provide the vital specialist services and resources in key areas such as blueprinting your application with testing and documentation before you migrate. Then there are some smart tools and techniques for automated conversion, integration and testing.

As a result, your familiar, much-loved applications will work just as well in your new environment, so you get the best of all worlds.
