At Astute, we understand data demands across your organization can be challenging. Did you know that each year, U.S. companies generate enough data to fill 10,000 Libraries of Congress, and that most firms only analyze 12% of the data they collect? With Astute Advanced Reporting’s direct and comprehensive access to your data, you can produce reports and visualizations in a way you never thought possible. With features like ad hoc reporting, you’re in control and able to create visual and tabular reports that make sense for your brand. Come see how you can extend your reporting capabilities by transforming data into insights, and insights into action!

Sparkcentral saves you 50% or more on customer service! Sound bold? Hear us out. We do this by making your communication more efficient (by moving 35%+ of your call volume to messaging channels in the first year; turning your traditional live chat into a modern, asynchronous live chat; and launching at least two new messaging channels for customer care) and more effective (through smart enterprise integration, by "hiring" AI virtual agents that complement your live agents, and by (re-)building your knowledge base). Then, we further help you improve your operations over time. Sound too good to be true? Check us out at SOCAP 2019 to hear more!

Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices is projected to be 75.44 billion worldwide by 2025, a fivefold increase in ten years.

Creating and Measuring Great Omnichannel Journeys

As much as the term “omnichannel” has been used—and overused—it is surprising that so few companies are actually offering it. In this era of business disruption, effortless personal omnichannel is the key to winning, yet both Gartner and IQPC estimate that only 5% of companies today are offering true omnichannel.

So how do you get started? This session will give you the keys to getting started with omnichannel and specific ways to measure and ensure a consistent experience across all channels.

Last year, Fonolo saved its customers 77 years’ worth of hold time. Its patented cloud-based call-back solutions have revolutionized the way contact centers interact with customers through web, mobile, and voice. Call-backs are magical: Fonolo has been proven to reduce abandon rates by 62%, increase repeat business, and in one case, generate $10 Million in new revenue for its customers. These for-real numbers are the result of our customers making a simple, scalable change in their call centers: offering a call-back as an alternative to waiting on hold.

Join us in this session as we walk through the cost-saving, game-changing world of call-backs, and how empowering customers with them can instantaneously reduce abandonment rates, smooth out call spikes, lower costs, and help retain customers.
