To survive in this difficult economy, businesses must deliver an above-average customer experience in order to retain existing customers as well as acquire new ones. All businesses must put even greater focus on the quality of service delivered through their call center. Traditionally this has meant providing more training to call center agents, so that they have the skills in place to deliver prompt and courteous service over the phone - but today, deploying the very latest call center technology has become critically important, as it allows organizations to deliver faster, more effective customer service at a lower cost.
