The transformation imperative

By: Tony Lorentzen, GM & SVP, Intelligent Engagement, Nuance Enterprise 

Right now, contact centers find themselves staring into a widening customer experience credibility gap. 

A recent study by Frost & Sullivan revealed a startling disparity between customers’ perceptions of the experiences they receive and companies’ perceptions of the experiences they deliver. Just 3% of consumers said they’re never frustrated with customer care, but 90% of contact center mangers say their agents are doing a good job. 

It’s clear that brands are failing to meet customers’ expectations—and transforming the contact center is now more urgent than ever.
