Agent Engagement: Changing Contact Center Dynamics

Agent Engagement: Changing Contact Center Dynamics

2 min read

Agent engagement refers to any customer interaction that requires a human touch. While much of the technology focus of recent years has been with self-service, the assisted service channel is seeing a resurgence of interest and importance. There is also a growing realization that customers no longer need to make a binary decision on using one form of service over the other – instead, self-service and assisted service are deeply intertwined, so much so that single customer interaction can span both channels, multiple times.

The same advances that powered self-service – Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Personalization, Chatbots – all of these are now being applied to the assisted service channel, giving organizations the ability to deliver perfect agent engagement interactions. It isn’t about a single technology on a single channel any more. Assisted service is still about the human touch, but with the added assistance of a robot! Think of it as “Intelligent Agent Engagement.”
