Don’t let technology come between you and exceptional customer service. That’s the message as industry statistics reveal four in every five contact centers are frustrated by technology. Rebecca Philip, Product Knowledge Manager of Teleopti, outlines 5 ways to buck the trend using a winning formula based on WFM.
