Businesses in every industry are continuing to deal with the effects of COVID-19. With many previous predictions on the economy now registered moot, experts are now weighing on what it means to deliver relevant customer experiences.
Understanding where your customers are and how to reach them in a seamless fashion is the cornerstone of any modern customer experience. Unfortunately, by the time a customer typically reaches your contact centre it means you have failed to deliver an effortless experience.
There’s a common misconception around the term, “contact centre outsourcing.” Many business leaders assume it is mainly a cost-cutting measure. What they don’t realise is that outsourcing is more than just a consolidation of functions for reducing costs.
Many experts say, “Looking for a job is a full-time job”. It takes time, effort and patience to find the right fit. Perfecting your resume, combing the web for job openings, networking with friends and colleagues and getting acquainted with each company’s uniquely different application and hiring process is stressful.
The nature of work and life has been forever altered by COVID-19, forcing industries of all nature to rapidly adapt. This is especially true for the BPO space, which had to prioritise technology for continuity and to enhance customer and employee experiences that have shifted home.
