At the event, Jafar had a fireside chat with Amanda Caparelli of CCW Digital. Amanda opened the discussion by saying that in the last several years new tech, new customer contact channels, and new objectives have become the norm. Jafar agreed and pointing out that employees behind the customer service are playing a bigger role in driving a better CX today.
Amanda wanted to know what the strategies are to drive a better CX and a better agent experience. She further asked, “Why should improving agent productivity and performance be prioritized right now?”. Jafar replied, “For too long the contact center industry hasn’t innovated much. The industry has been continuing with legacy infrastructure and approach for a long time.” That had a detrimental impact on the employee morale and resulted in very high attrition rates, according to Jafar.
Amanda next asked, “ How can AI drive a better agent experience both during the call and after the call”. Jafar replied, “Using AI to pull out the right information at the right time and providing it to customers”, is how AI can help improve the agent experience during the call. AI is adept at after-call work and this helps the agents after the call, according to Jafar.
“What trends do you see are disrupting the customer service space today?”, Amanda wanted to know. Jafar explained that security has become a big concern for contact centers today. Also, customer expectations are changing and gravitating towards instant gratification and personalization. These are some of the top trends that Jafar saw disrupting the customer service industry.
Thought Jafar had a word of caution for customer service industry leaders. He said, “Identify the problems in your contact centers and then check the AI and automation solutions that can help you resolve those problems”. These were Jafar’s parting thoughts if you really want to improve the agent experience and CX in your contact center.
