Today’s customers demand choice when they interact with your organization. And channel of choice is at the top of the list. But having more channels can create more challenges in consistency, interoperability and value recognition. In the past, contact centers under pressure to meet customer demands had limited options for adding channels. This led to the use of separate tools for a “multichannel” approach—creating silos in communications, teams, processes, technology, analytics and invoices. The result was poor, inconsistent and disconnected customer experiences—and expensive and complex contact center operations.
But technology has evolved to support modern, omnichannel experiences. Omnichannel unifies inbound and outbound communications to deliver proactive, contextual interactions to your customers—seamlessly. Customers get personalized engagements across all channels throughout their entire customer journey. And customers, agents, and reps can shift between channels without losing context. Your business can expertly design, launch and monitor even the most complex customer journeys using routing to automatically deliver interactions to the best available resource.
But here’s the secret: Not all cloud contact centers are created equal or omnichannel. While many vendors have adopted the term “omnichannel” to describe their solutions, the technology underneath is still multichannel.
For companies trying to evolve their customer experience with legacy multichannel systems, the struggle is real. According to the Dimension Data 2019 Global CX Benchmarking Report, 58.5% of businesses said channels are managed in silos. And 44.3% said multiple channel adoption is “too difficult” without “a single view of all touchpoints.”
If you’re looking to gain omnichannel capabilities, and you need a technology upgrade or migration to do so, there are four ways to identify a true omnichannel cloud contact center platform.
“This is the best contact center I could have imagined. We’ve been ranked the number one Vodafone contact center worldwide. And with the new innovative channels we’ve developed, we know there’s a lot more to come.”
