Omnichannel is one of those words everyone uses, but few use correctly. It’s not another word for multichannel. It’s a different state of existence. In our experience, multichannel is the ability to interact with customers across many different channels, but not necessarily in a cohesive fashion. As new channels become available, they are “bolted on” to existing customer experience infrastructure such as CRM or customer support systems. Too frequently, the management of these channels becomes siloed (web versus in-store sales, for example). The effect of this from the customer experience standpoint can be disjointed and jarring. For example, the resolution of an issue following a customer conversation with an associate in the contact center may not be reflected when the customer goes online or into a store. Yet the ability to offer multichannel service experience is table stakes for today’s business. If you’re not available in the channels where customers want you to be, you cease to b

Today’s most successful brands blend Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation with human intelligence (HUMINT) to augment their customer and employee experience strategies in the contact center – and as a result, they’re winning over customers. While some tasks are perfect for automation – think about those mundane, repetitive, low-value actions – the truth is, AI simply cannot replicate the “human touch.” Understanding the strengths of each kind of intelligence (AI + HUMIT), and using them to cooperatively deliver exceptional employee and customer experiences is a pivotal competitive differentiator for brands. These leading brands agree there are four specific ways to drive the greatest outcomes – and we go into detail about them in all our Contact Center Collaborative Intelligence strategy guide.

Driven by the need to save money, improve agility, and take rapid advantage of emerging technologies to improve internal collaboration and customer engagement, organizations are quickly adopting Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) and Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS). UCaaS and CCaaS enable businesses to deliver a modern communications environment, without large capital investment, and in a manner that provides for rapid scaling, easy expansion into new sites and geographies, and deployment flexibility. Unfortunately, many enterprise networks are not optimized to deliver the performance and reliability required to support cloud-based applications, including UCaaS and CCaaS. As a result, IT leaders are rapidly adopting Software-Defined Wide-Area Network (SD-WAN) technologies. With SD-WAN’s ability to virtualize underlying network services and to build enterprise-grade WANs using both public (Internet) connectivity and private WAN connectivity, IT leaders can leverage it to su
