Chelmsford, Mass. (Vocus) March 5, 2008
Aspect Software, Inc., the world’s largest company solely focused on the contact center, today announced that Keith Dawson, senior analyst for Frost & Sullivan, and Scott Ginsberg, author and publisher, will both deliver keynote addresses at its Aspect Customer Experience (ACE) 2008. ACE, taking place at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, Georgia 9-12 March 2008, is hosted by Aspect Software and the Aspect Software User Group Association (ASUGA).
ACE has become a leading international forum to discuss strategies for bringing positive change to the contact center, and addresses topics that affect an organization’s collections, customer service, and sales and telemarketing operations on a daily basis. The annual event attracts executives from small, medium and large enterprises alike seeking ways to balance customers’ demands with the realities of the bottom line, reduce complexity, and maximize their contact center investments.
“The Aspect Customer Experience is an ideal environment for people to learn from their colleagues’ challenges and successes, exchange innovative ideas with their peers, and collaborate with industry experts,” said Melody Cespedes, president, ASUGA board. “We are honored to have Scott Ginsberg and Keith Dawson delivering the keynote addresses at this year’s event. They will provide insight into business success strategies relating to contact centers, and will set the stage for a terrific conference.”
Keith Dawson is a senior analyst for Frost & Sullivan and an authority on call centers and the management of customer care technology. Mr. Dawson has written thousands of articles and several definitive books, including the Call Center Handbook. Formerly an editor for Call Center Magazine, Mr. Dawson today focuses on the customer experience: how it is measured and whether companies are using the contact center to manage that experience to their advantage. Mr. Dawson will address unified communications trends and strategies for the contact center and will share his insight on the overall contact center market.
Scott Ginsberg, “The Authority on Approachability,” carries the distinction of being the only person in the world who wears a nametag 24x7. He is the author of seven business books, publisher of thousands of articles, creator of award-winning Web sites and blogs, and has been inducted into “Ripley’s Believe it Or Not!”
