July 9 – Roundtable - Best Practices in Workforce Management – Call Design, Calabrio, Verint, Workflex Solutions
Agent engagement directly impacts everything ranging from the cost of running a call center to customer satisfaction. Frequently, the struggle isn’t so much in correlating the impact of agent engagement on operational metrics, but rather how to positively impact the issue and associated metrics. And as contact centers are increasingly dominated by "Millennial-Generation" agents, agent satisfaction is increasingly being linked to self-service scheduling or "work-life balance” empowerment. Gain new insight from four top industry solution providers.

August 6, Roundtable - Best Practices in First Contact Resolution- NICE, OpenSpan, Virtual Hold, Voiance
First contact resolution (FCR) is properly addressing the customer's need the first time they contact your organization, eliminating the need for the customer to follow up with a second contact. Contact center managers need to carefully monitor follow-up inquiries — in addition to being an indication of customer dissatisfaction, follow-up contacts create an overall increased call volume which, in turn, requires more agents. Attend this roundtable to learn how you can improve FCR and reduce costs while also enhancing customer experience and satisfaction.
Tuesday, August 11 - Tips and Tricks for Successful Contact Center Forecasting and Planning– Interactive Intelligence
Workforce management has long been characterized as having the right numbers of agents available at the right time to service customers. This definition still applies, and now extends to strategic planning. Many companies subscribe to two areas to ensure they’re staffed appropriately, at all times: 1. To react successfully to the intraday management environment and day-of changes to scheduling, 2. To meet seasonal and changing service demands according to the strategic plan, make sure that the right number of agents are trained and available.
