Coming back from a business trip this week, I realized it had been more than a year since our partnership with Amazon and the Connect team started. It’s incredible how much has transpired in a year and absolutely stunning the amount of welcome and reception that the platform has received from the marketplace. At launch, I thought early adopters would primarily be comprised of aggressive SMB organizations eager to adapt and adopt the latest new toys in the industry. Consider myself stunned that more than ever anticipated, early adopters have been largely comprised of big time Enterprise. And by that, we’re talking the biggest of the bigs – top 5 banks, top 5 insurers, top 5 financial service companies, top 5 retailers…..it’s truly been stunning.
Tulsa, Oklahoma – November 21, 2017 – VoiceFoundry, a provider of enterprise cloud-based contact center solutions with a unique focus on customer engagement, today announced the release of a CTI Connector, offering advanced integration between Amazon Connect and ServiceNow®. The CTI Connector has been certified by ServiceNow signifying that VoiceFoundry has successfully completed a set of defined testing focused on integration and interoperability, security and performance. This certification ensures that best practices are utilized in the design and implementation of the VoiceFoundry CTI Connector application.
When developing your business objectives and technology, a key component is evaluating the degree of automation offered by your technology platforms. Self-service and automated business processes often reduce costs while improving agent and customer productivity. Consider what you are doing to drive overall customer automation, expand the linkages between front-end and backend systems to streamline the agent experiences (CTI) , support your agents by empowering them to better service your customers (WFO) and most importantly, what systems do you have (and desire) to measure your centers performance (Reporting)? What do you need to add, enhance or revamp to deliver a better customer experience? By expanding automation technology across the contact center you can also expand the areas to which the technology itself can bring value.
VoiceFoundry CTI Connector now available from the Freskdesk Marketplace
VoiceFoundry is passionate about partnering to create applications that drive the customer experience. We are proud to announce the availability of a VoiceFoundry CTI Connector with the Freshdesk Marketplace help desk ticketing solution that is based on the AWS Connect platform.
This radical CTI Connector forges the way for companies to quickly and cost-efficiently integrate AWS Connect with Freshdesk, giving contact center agents access to information they need to provide an exceptional experience for every call. Freshdesk customers and prospects can now leverage this advanced integration alongside AWS Connect in order to deliver a world class experience to their customers.
How do you put the humanity back into customer interaction? Over the last few years we have spent so much time and money implementing these great self-service, automated, no-agent needed solutions that we have missed the mark on what customers consider great customer service.
Companies now advertise that a live person will answer their call, no matter what – not some poorly executed automated attendant. What made perfect sense to the business to help route customers more quickly, get them to the person with the right skills every time, and reduce agent time spent on the phone, has simply put customers off. We all know that it is expensive to have a live person answer the phone for a large contact center, so what are the alternatives if your objective is to provide a personal touch that extends the feeling of human interaction yet saves on the cost to serve?
