In the rush to embrace technology, companies too often forget the critical importance of people in the customer service chain. Whether it’s building rapport for a potential sale, negotiating a payment schedule with a late payor, or seeding a chatbot with a detailed knowledge base…people power, and are ultimately accountable for, the customer’s experience. With technology solutions such as RPA, AI, chatbots and voice apps at our doorstep, how can we blend these with our people to deliver the best possible customer and employee experience?

Over a delicious lunch, you’ll hear from both people and technology experts about opportunities to work together, rather than at odds with each other. We’ll use case studies to show how you don’t have to sacrifice a people-centric approach to embrace technology and the benefits it offers customers.

Best question prize: free voice app

The attendee with the “best question” during our Q&A time will win a free Google Voice app for their business.

Join us for a boardroom lunch to learn how analytics can be deployed as a service to achieve breakthrough insights about what customers want and feel. With the only requirement being a call recording capability, there is no need for internal specialists or purchase of any software licences.

Manually reviewing a tiny sample of individual call recordings will never deliver the insights of a “big data” approach - now accessible to contact centres of all sizes.

Keynote Case Study

Hear a success story from Origin Energy, which brought a new product to market the smart way – by testing and learning from customer conversations with the call centre. Through analytics, Origin could finetune the language they used in their sales offers, the product benefits and service experience, all resulting in an industry-first, customer-first energy plan.

This event is designed for leaders in contact centres, CX, marketing, insights & analytics.
