Better Customer Contact with Contact Center

By Travis Dillard, Inflow Communications

Providing the best customer service is on the top of everyone’s mind. Or it should be. And with communication and data whipping past us at record speeds these days, it can be difficult to get a grip on the simple needs of your customers as they cycle through the communication lines. By aligning your business data with your contact center, you’ll find ways to leverage the knowledge that’s already in your business to provide top-notch customer service.

At Inflow, we’re constantly helping our clients streamline their business and provide better, faster and more effective customer service. Take one of our recent clients for example: a high-end pizza delivery company that focuses on customer experience. When you call, they “magically” know who you are, your favorite pizza toppings, the gate code to your condo complex and your dog’s name before they even say “hello” in under three rings. Unlike other pizza companies, the experience is unforgettable. It’s so unique, you tell your friends about it. You feel like you’re part of the family. You are loyal. But what you don’t know, is that based on the number of orders you place a year, the system automatically “grades” you to determine which agent takes your call and the types of promotions they should offer you. What’s going on behind the curtain? It’s a ShoreTel Enterprise Contact Center integrated with a home-grown CRM system that’s been collecting data on their customers for over a decade. Again, data leveraged right can be the most powerful asset you have.

Keep in mind this example doesn’t just apply to ShoreTel Enterprise contact center or home-grown CRM customers. This concept can be applied to many contact center technologies on the market.

This is just one of many examples of ways to integrating your data and contact center. Interested in learning more? There’s still a chance to sign up for our webinar tomorrow. Follow the link below to register for our upcoming online Contact Center Educational Series:
