With the sudden rise in popularity of call centers around the world, these contact centers are all quickly finding out that they have something in common. Finding a way to be innovative in a business sector that was once looked at as the ugly step child is now being stressed. One way in which quite a few of these firms have found to be innovative is to operate their call centers through the cloud.
There is little doubt that the rise of the cloud has actually been a bit of a parallel when talking about contact centers. Contact centers have been around longer than the cloud, but those same contact centers are finding a second life thanks to this relatively new technology. What once was thought to be only a storage technology is now something that can be used to allow more flexibility and innovation in the sector.
Another step to gaining innovation in the contact center world is to find new ways to interact with customers. Using VoIP-based contact centers is one way, though no longer all that new and different. One area in which contact centers can expand, that hasn’t really been tapped yet, is social media.
A contact center that can take advantage of Facebook and Twitter is a contact center that will stand out from the pack. This contact center will also be able to offer up new and different ways for customers to contact them. This will allow for better interaction between customers and contact center representatives. This can also lead to better customer satisfaction because other customers will see that interaction and decide it is a tool they should take advantage of as well.
The best part about these innovative moves is that they are not moves that require a ton of investment or time. These moves will put a contact center in the front of the pack, without needing to spend a ton of money to do so.
