Transforming the contact center into a customer intelligence hub

Calabrio

Technology continues to replace traditionally human roles throughout the enterprise world, but there is still no substitute for true human-to-human interactions. These conversations, whether voice calls, online chats or email exchanges, create some of the richest, most multi-dimensional data your organization has. It’s the unfiltered voice of your customer, directly (and indirectly) telling you what they want, and how you can deliver it.

With the right analytics solution in place, the enterprise can tap into this incredible resource, transforming the contact center from a cost center into a business intelligence hub that drives impact across the organization. An advanced contact center analytics solution goes well beyond improving customer service, empowering a range of enterprise users—from sales staff and marketing leaders, to product teams and legal counsel—to take a proactive approach to increasing efficiency, enhancing service levels, identifying opportunities and driving revenue.
