Factors Leading to ERP Implementation Failures and Strategies for PreventionDecember 21, 2023
In a busy contact center, agents often face challenging customer inquiries. Most of the time, their supervisors have the answers to resolve these issues quickly.
Imagine a scenario in which an agent is dealing with a complex query. The supervisor, fully aware of the situation, can only listen in without offering real-time guidance. This extends the call time, leading to potential customer dissatisfaction.
In this scenario, both the customer and agent would greatly benefit from a system feature that allows a supervisor to step in and take over the inquiry. This would ensure a quick resolution and better customer experience.
Modern contact center applications, such as Engage 360, provide this feature. By enabling supervisors to barge into calls, Engage 360 promotes real-time collaboration for faster resolutions, leading to
- happier customers,
