How Contact Center Agents + Digital Channels Drive Engagement
In a blog post last week titled The Role of People in the Digital World, Verint’s Steven Thurlow, vice president and global practice leader, engagement management, discussed how companies and organizations have adapted to a digital world, allowing customers to research, shop and get help online at their convenience.
Steven made the important point that many of these digital channels still require human intervention of some sort including live chat, email response, social media engagement, or other channels. He also outlined why contact center agents are often the most critical element of providing an excellent customer service experience—and also how agents help differentiate an organization’s brand.
