A key conclusion identified by the research was that dedicated compliance solutions comprising analytics and automation will help contact centers optimize resources while empowering employees to ensure compliance and building trust among customers.
"Contact centers must protect the interests of their customers when it comes to their personal data," said Barry Cooper, President of the Enterprise Group for NICE. "Ensuring compliance requires contact centers to navigate a maze of regulations, standards and best practices, which are becoming increasingly resource draining for IT and compliance professionals. Businesses must leverage analytics, AI and automation to adopt a proactive approach, uphold the trust of their customers and simplify their employees' day to day tasks."
