Our CCW Fall Online event will focus on better connecting with customers. There will be an emphasis on topics like analytics (understanding customers, understanding how agents are delivering for those customers), engagement (including trends like personalization and effortless) and omnichannel interactions (including making the experience more seamless and “human” across the different channels). “Intelligence” and “connection” are key themes of the in-person CCW event, so they will naturally fuel a lot of the content for the CCW Fall online offering.

This complimentary virtual event will help your business get ahead of the next generation of customer experience.

Aviad Abiri Vice President, Portfolio Marketing & Enablement, NICE
Brad Snedeker Director of Innovation, Calabrio

If your contact center operation is slow, inefficient and disintegrated on the backend, you have no prayer of delivering a fast, consistent, connected, effortless experience on the frontend.

This session will help you right the ship. It will reveal how to gift your brand with an “intelligent” contact center.

Data will flow freely from system to system, touch point to touch point, and agent to agent. Training, workflow management, post-call work and other “non-conversational” tasks will be streamlined so that agents can focus on high-value interactions.

The contact center, quite simply, will leverage technology for the purpose of customer centricity – not gimmick.

CX Technology: It’s About Use, Not Platform

Bryant Kaminaga Visa

It’s not about what you have – it’s about what you do with it. Exciting new CX technology seemingly emerges every month, but there is no value in marveling at the theoretical wonder of the platforms.

Two Mega-Trends Transforming The Customer Experience

Nitin Badjatia ServiceNow

Join this session to hear about the two mega-trends that are forcing companies to rethink how customer service impacts their customers’ journeys and to learn ways to act today in addressing these changes. First, companies will have insight into when, where, and how their products and services are used as everything will be connected, providing the ability to become active participants in the value-delivery chain of products, not simply responsible for providing support. Second, almost every industry is looking for a model to drive recurring revenue. In this subscription economy, customer service organizations will need to shift from reactive support models to proactive success models, where customer success is directly associated with usage and renewal. These two trends will redefine service excellence, how it is delivered, and how it is measured.
