Call Center technology trends to watch in 2018

Do you know your call center business can generate remarkable revenue in just one month duration? Yes, it’s true, but it’s only possible with the implementation of right tools and techniques.

  • According to results, the total costs to acquire new customers are eight times greater than the costs to retain the existing customer.
  • By offering excellent customer services, the business can boost their chances to retain the customer by up to 40%.

Computer telephony integration (CTI):

CTI enables the telephone systems and computers to work together in order to improve the efficiency of call center business. It mainly allows the computers to manage the telephone calls, and assure the agent that he will be receiving a pop-up screen along with the customer’s account details on their computer screen.

This will eventually save the time of your caller and agent as well, and also allow your customer support executive to get access to the customer profile and history by using their information to provide better support.

Predictive dialer:

A predictive dialer is a smart dialing software that enables your company to make multiple calls within a few minutes. They help you access the customer who is more likely to attend your call, and screen out all the busy numbers, no answers, disconnected numbers and answering machines. The dialer will mainly predict when the agent is available to attend next call.

VoIP; cutting edge technology

If you are looking for greater scalability and flexible mobility then utilizing VoIP solutions will help you fix the issues in the more efficient way. With the help of VoIP solution providers in Pakistan, your company can generate more revenue for cost effective rates. You can make thousands of International calls with the help of dialing software to reach the customer.

Omni channel support:

According to 2013 and 2014 surveys, it has been found out that there are 79% customers who still prefer to use phone support over any other method; but interestingly, that statistic itself is misleading.  Because right after 1 year, there were approximately 8 out of 10 people that chose phone support as they didn’t have any other option. And the rest of the 2% customers didn’t pick up the phone after getting some unanswered emails and was exploring every other channel they could possibly use. And then according to another report, it was indicated that the lack of delayed and low quality support through social media, text and email was driving all the customers away. Therefore, they preferred choosing phone support over other mediums. But now in 2018, besides using VoIP or voice call services, the trend of Omni channel support is getting increased because we have different versatile mediums that can help us reach the customer.
