TRAINING IN CONTACT CENTERS

EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT

Article : Technological Evolution: Going too Fast?

Technology has been taking some huge steps recently, especially in the telecoms and computer industry. Considering that the contact center industry is dependent on adapting the latest communication technologies and software, how is this evolutionary race affecting the business as a whole? Industry professionals share their views.

Steve McArthur
Head Of Service Delivery
Prudential Corporation Asia
Hong Kong

"Yes, although most appear to be very expensive and therefore with smaller call centres the technology cannot be purchased unless there is a clear business / financial benefit. I don't think enough is shared or promoted about advances in technology. Maybe some of the larger institutions should use smaller call centres to test new technology."
About Prudential Corporation Asia

"Answer, here is adoption of technology and modification of existing process by leveraging new technology."

 
John Gelmini
Telephone And E Mail Strategy Manager
Essex County Council
United Kingdom

"British management is outdated in this respect which is why many of them wont agree to outsource operations even though the financial case for doing so is overwhelming.Their desire to exercise control is greater than their desire to reduce costs although you would be hard pressed to get any of them to admit it publicly. There are exceptions and outsourcing is growing in popularity at the same time as global competition forces organisations to reduce costs by encouraging virtual working."

Michael Muldoon
Customer Service Manager
Diageo
Ireland

"Yes, technology is going the right way, and at the right speed. A lot of the supplier consolidation in recent years hasn't led to a step change in what's available. The problem is identifying what meets your needs, as almost all competing products do 80% of what's needed - it's just never the same 80% when compared. It seems to me that many contact centres are investing in their people to resolve their problems in-house, rather than taking something of the shelf. Maybe we could be better at sharing that information."
About Diageo

Diageo is a premium drinks business offering spirits, wine and beer.

Symantec
Australia

"As a technology company we are forever changing our technology to meet the customer's needs. This covers hardware as well as software. Some utilities are introduced that enable the technicians to work in a smarter way, such as WebEx and AppCritical. Integration of emails into the CRM has also helped, the tracking of contact with customers. There are other technologies out there, to assist contact centres, but are not specially directed towards tech support."

Marc Bellavia
Manager, Direct Sales
Sage
United States

"I don't think technology is the problem, it that organizations need to be flexible enough with budgets to implement quickly based on the ever changing needs of the customer / economy. Often times, its not even a budget issue, its that organizations can't turn on a dime and re-tool agents quickly enough for changes in the marketplace."
