Live Webinar: November 11, 2013
TIME: 2:00pm ET/ 11:00am PT

Amazon's Mayday button is a revolutionary development in Customer Service; press a button and within 15 seconds you will be connected to someone who can help you. Almost instant service, no frustrating and complex menus, just great customer service. That's why CEO Jeff Bezos says that this is the "Wow" factor, and describes it as the intersection of "customer delight" and "deep integration through the entire stack."

This promise by Amazon can only be met if their contact center, ERP and CRM infrastructure is highly integrated and optimized so that the information is instantly available and at the Amazon employee's fingertips. This degree of customer service is simply not possible with the vast majority of contact centers today. Care to bet against Amazon anyone?

Whether you want to offer a 15 second response time like Amazon, 30 seconds, or 45 seconds, we will be talking about what it takes to accomplish this.

Did Amazon just fire a "shot heard 'round the world”? Come to our webinar and hear what three leading thinkers in this space have to say about blended analytics. Join us and find out, and you just may be the winner of the drawing for a new Kindle Fire with the ground-breaking "Mayday” button that delivers customer service 15 seconds after pressing it.
