10 Examples… Storing contact context information for cross channel persistent conversations Collection and export of contact context to data warehousing/reporting/analytics Leverage a unique context ID per contact Enable desktop screen pops Centralized secure secure context encryption for PCI compliance Enable DNIS pooling for transport of context

11 WebRTC is an API definition being drafted by the World Wide Web Consortium to enable browser-to-browser applications for voice calling, video chat, and P2P file sharing without plugins. Heavily encouraged by WebRTC features (text chat, voice chat/audio calling, video chat, real-time file/data sharing, peer to peer capabilities) CC Market Trends: Enhanced websites for customer sat Immediate connection options with agent (no IVR) Context-aware agent and customer communications Greater acceptance of using computing device as phone

12 CC Market Implications & Advantages
Remote Agents scenarios Display Queue info before/during a contact Skip IVR (website/apps having segmentation data) Mobile/Embedded apps Screen/Video sharing apps (could make video a real option in the contact center) Co-browsing Advantages (if done properly) Embeds RTC capabilities directly into web pages Decreased costs due to a potential decrease in contact handle time (better qualified contacts, Context-sensitive support) Better BI through tighter integration Mobilizing the contact center and better support for remote based agents.

13 WebRTC Challenges Browser Market Share IE usage dips on weekends. Still dominate in enterprise business market.

14 WebRTC Challenges WebRTC vs. Microsoft’s soon to be released CU-RTC- Web Signaling protocols (SIP/XMPP/Custom) Video encoding (V8/H.264) Other technical issues: Interoperability, QoS, lack of IE support, persistent web client, limited browser support CC Adoption Issues: Agent training, video shows everything, need Chrome/Firefox/Opera. Can increase contact volume Browser based UI & Enterprise recording.

15 Now, Near and Future Now Near Future

20 Attribute Based Routing Example Customer Needs Expert Assistance In Branch
Customer arrives at the local bank branch with a specialized question about a particular investment product 1 Bank representative enters customer question into a web application powered by Workflow 2 The application locates expert at the corporate office and connects him to the bank representative 3 Although each Smart Finder solution is tailored to individual business requirements and infrastructures, they all utilize a consistent underlying design for locating and accessing expert resources. Here is a typical scenario for Smart Finder in action in a customer-facing environment. Walk through the scenario step-by-step… In addition to face-to-face situations, be sure to explain that Smart Finder works equally well when the customer is calling in to a contact center for support and it is the agent that reaches out and interacts with the expert Bank representative is able to answer question and customer signs up 4 20

Empower Enterprise Resources to Easily Produce Customer Journey Maps Utilizing a Single, Graphical, Intuitive Canvas Utilize extensive, expandable palette to tailor and customize workflows Long terms storage (days, weeks, months) of workflows The Experience layer in the Model is the Customer Experience Management “Brain” which enables your organization to deliver the type of customer experience you require. It transforms customer experience from Dated Routing, Queuing, and Agent Allocation to 1:1 Matching of Customers to Resources Using Contextual Awareness. In so doing, it ensures that the Right Enterprise Resources are engaged at the Right Time to deliver the Right Customer Experience, as designed by the organization. This delivers two key benefits namely optimal resource utilization across the organization and exceptional customer experience The Experience layer essentially performs the following key activities: Processes Contextual and drive Awareness – the Experience layer knows and applies the “DNA” of your customers (for example, customer needs and preferences, account information, purchasing history, etc.), your business (for example your business policies, resource expertise, resource availability, customer segmentation, etc.) and the environment within which your customers and your business operate (for example, a customer’s location, the device they’re using, the environment, promotions available that may be of interest to them, etc) and it processes all of this information in real time. Best/1:1 Matching - Leverage contextual awareness to identify best resource for customer needs (agent or automated) and ensure execution across right media at the right time. It executes the right match of people and information across right media at the right time Connects to the Back-Office - Connect business processes, back office functions and information with enterprise routing, agent selection, and workflows to ensure persistent conversation. It uses context provided from back office systems and linked with the Customer Experience Management applications to determine what the next best action should be. The Experience layer KNOWS the NEXT BEST ACTION TO ENFORCE and this is REALLY UNIQUE TO THE BUSINESS. And as previously mentioned, the key thing here is that customers can take advantage of the Experience layer irrespective of whether your heritage is Elite or AACC, you are on one of two paths that both lead you to Experience Management. Our strategy is to ensure that no one has to turn off what they have today, whether that’s their call vectoring, their CMS, or whatever else. Greater enterprise control over workflows and journey maps

24 Eco-System Snap-in Build
CE- 2.0 CallNACK Improves Call Handling, Customer Service Integrating Business Intelligence and Outbound Dialing Balancing act of compliance and pro-active outreach is challenging. The CallNACK application “snap-in” was custom-designed by NACR on ACE originally and converted to the CE 2.0 pallet. With CallNACK, your outbound dialer “talks to” the NACR application, which performs a database lookup to automatically allow or block a call depending on the established parameters. The application is designed for adaptability, with multiple uses and options.

26 Summary There a some amazing new ways to solve the old and new form of the customer service challenge. It seems magical, open and easier…but it has new layers of complexity to consider. You need to leverage your expertise for adoption and business unit translations to technology. More dynamic, constant tweaking/evolving. Consider alternate day to day management.
