Industry Research : New Research Reveals Top Frustrations for Video Conferencing and Call Center Customers
8x8, Inc.,a provider of global Enterprise Communications as a Service (ECaaS), revealed results from a survey conducted at the Enterprise Connect show last week. The survey asked show attendees (IT decision makers, system integrators, equipment manufacturers, and end users) their opinions on video conferencing, call centers, and cloud communications.
The findings shed light on respondents’ key pain points around communications and collaboration experiences, specifically:
Cloud Communications: Security was the number one concern (35%), followed by quality of service (21%).
Call Centers: Over half of the respondents said getting transferred from agent to agent, or having to repeatedly identify themselves were their chief aggravators.
Video Conferencing: While poor sound or visual quality was the main frustration, connection issues and being asked to download an app were a close second.
The research echoes much of what is being discussed in the industry today, but more importantly highlights areas where vendors need to focus their efforts in delivering higher quality customer experiences– security, quality of service, and features across unified communications and contact center, that deliver instant, continuous communications across devices and platforms, all integrated into a single application.
