How Mitel-Powered Contact Centers are Evolving to Improve the Customer Experience

While voice-based channels remain the primary communication method with customers today, consumers are increasingly expecting, even demanding, to interact with companies through alternate methods such as text, web chat, email and other social media tools.

This means that every company MUST become as fluent in these emerging media channels as they are with voice communications today. That’s where TCI and Mitel’s Contact Center Solutions come in…

  • Multichannel Contact Center Solutions give customers the flexibility to choose the method of contact that makes the most sense for them at any given time, while giving your organization the ability to provide the same prompt, informed customer experience across all channels.
  • Outbound Contact Center Solutions provide tools your teams can use to proactively reach out and execute campaigns efficiently. Information is delivered right to agents as they make calls, increasing the chances for successful interactions.
  • Inbound Contact Center Solutions allow agents to efficiently handle calls and perform common actions using fewer steps and with reduced errors in call processing for an optimized customer experience.
  • Workforce Management and Recording Management Solutions allow you to plan, forecast and schedule agents to increase operational efficiency. A variety of tools help monitor, analyze and enhance individual and group performance.

Digital Transformation: Understanding the Digital Imperative

A major challenge for businesses in every industry is how to maintain and increase competitive advantage in today’s dynamic economy.

Companies can no longer simply differentiate their products and services along a single dimension – like price, features, quality, and support.

Except for commodity goods and services, the lowest price doesn’t guarantee a sale, poor quality is never acceptable, and customer service requires far more than a friendly smile.

Instead, perceived value, functional match to requirements, exceptional quality, and total customer experience across all touch points are all important aspects of the new competitive norm.

Continued success is now based on being able to capture new opportunities in a rapidly changing market.

Businesses must find innovative and creative new ways to engage, attract, and retain their customers.
