Protecting Customer Data from Security Threats in 2019

Posted by Ahmed Macklai on Nov 1, 2019 7:30:00 AM

Every few weeks, it seems there is another major data breach in the news. Journalists love these stories; with so many people trusting major companies with their sensitive information and having so much as stake when this information is compromised, it makes for hot news when these stories break. The average person on the street is less thrilled to hear this news, though.

Safeguarding consumer data security should be a top priority for any company in the modern day. This especially applies to those who handle the most sensitive of information regarding their clients. If this describes your contact center, you may be wondering what you can do to ensure that your company or those that you partner with won’t be part of the next big compromise of consumer data security in the news.

Does a Start-Up Need a Call Center Solution?

Posted by Ahmed Macklai on Oct 18, 2019 7:30:00 AM

These days, it seems like every company has a customer service hotline. Whether the product you purchased doesn’t perform up to standard or the service you paid for isn’t adequate, you can seemingly always contact the customer support line associated with the company you did business with and have your questions or concerns addressed. “Give them a call,” has become a standard conversational response whenever someone complains that something they paid for isn’t meeting their expectations.

But what about today’s smallest, newest businesses? What about the start-ups, the brand-new companies that are hatching from the brains of tech-savvy teen or recent college graduates? What about these micro-businesses, which are almost wholly reliant on things like crowdfunding just to get their start? Do they have the need - or the room in their budget - for a call center solution?

Here’s what you need to know about bringing together the unlikely pairing of the start-up business and the customer service call center - and how today’s call center solution can be made to fit and meet almost any business or consumer need:

The Secret Reason Why AI Will Never Die

Posted by Ahmed Macklai on Sep 30, 2019 7:30:00 AM

When artificial intelligence - or AI - was first being introduced into the world of customer service, many people wondered how long it would last. Some thought it might be a passing fad, while others were certain it was doomed to be a flash-in-the-pan trend that would quickly fade with many others that have come and come.

However, AI has proven its staying power and its relevance in both the customer service industry and the contact center setting overall. With the next decade fast approaching, industry analysts are beginning to believe that artificial intelligence may never die in the call center.

If you’re wondering why this tool of technology has become so ubiquitous, you’re not alone. Many management members still don’t fully understand the benefits of employing AI in their centers. Until they do, it’s difficult to truly comprehend just how lasting this technology stands to be.

What is an Outbound Dialer?

Posted by Ahmed Macklai on Aug 8, 2019 7:30:00 AM

How many calls do your call center agents make per day? If your center is like many, the number would be staggering to anyone outside the customer service or sales industries. However, it’s just part of everyday operations at your center - and that may be part of what’s wrong with your facility’s productivity.

You see, if you don’t have an automated outbound dialer in place, your agents are making all of those many calls by hand. Every contact they reach out to must be chosen from a list, their number identified, and then manually dialed. This may only take a minute or so for each contact. But with dozens or even hundreds of calls being made by each agent every hour, those minutes quickly add up. That lost time is lost productivity and profitability for your center.

Here, we’ll look at how using an outbound dialer in your contact center can mean the difference in marginal profit and booming business for your company - and how to get your hands on the best in the industry.
