It provides a robust portfolio of customer engagement tools; a unified, enterprise-enabled, analytics-driven WFO suite; and shared intelligence for more rapid and improved decision making.
Bucci also credits Verint for driving the deployment of WFO applications to customer-facing and back-office environments beyond the contact center, noting “Verint has led the charge into these adjacent markets through acquisitions that had specialized software for back-office operations, as well as knowledge management and case management.”
The contact center is a symphony of people, processes and technology working toward the provision of exceptional customer service. Driving engagement, customer satisfaction and loyalty is all in a day’s work.
