The omnichannel contact center is now mandatory

In May of 1897, American writer Mark Twain was rumored to have died. When he was told about this, Twain said, “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” If Twain had been a technology, he would have been voice communications. Every year, it seems, someone declares voice is dead, particularly in the contact center.

With so many communications channels now, voice is seemingly discarded in an omnichannel contact center. We now live in a world of texting, chatting, self-service and tweets, which must spell doom for voice, right? Well, not exactly.

Reports of voice’s death appear to be greatly exaggerated, according to the results of a recent survey by cloud contact-center vendor Five9 Inc. 

The online survey, conducted by research firm Zogby Analytics, polled 1,138 U.S. adults, ranging in age from 18 to retirees in their 70s. The survey asked these consumer respondents to assess the role of customer service in consumer behavior and purchasing decisions, as well as their communication preferences.

All age ranges prefer voice

In aggregate, 54% of respondents said the phone is their preferred mode of communication. Email, at 19%, and chat, at 15%, were distant second and third preferences.

You might look at this data and think this makes sense in aggregate, but the number must be skewed by older people, since millennials are obviously anti-voice. This is partially true, but not the whole story. The survey found a generational bias toward voice based on age, but the gap is not as big as you’d think.

Retirees, ages 70 or older, had the highest percentage of respondents whose top preference was voice, with 76%. As the age group declined, so did the preference for voice communications. But, in every case, voice was still the most preferred communications channel. 

Seventy-two percent of baby boomers, ages 55 to 69, selected voice as the top response. Generation X, ages 35 to 54, was at 48%. Older millennials, ages 25 to 34, were at 41%. And younger millennials, ages 18 to 24, used voice 38% of the time. In all age groups, except retirees, email and chat had double-digit representation, with the younger millennial group using those tools the most.

Omnichannel contact center links data

The data certainly underscores the importance of voice, but also the need for an omnichannel contact center. Most contact centers have implemented multichannel systems, but that’s not sufficient moving forward. 

Multichannel offers a range of discrete communication options, such as voice, chat, email and self-service. An omnichannel contact center is similar, except the data can be shared among the channels. 

Businesses need to prioritize evolving their contact centers to omnichannel systems.

For example, a customer may start an interaction using chat and enter a loyalty number and other information. After getting frustrated, the customer decides to switch to voice and places a call. With a multichannel service, all the information would have to be re-entered into an interactive voice response or relayed verbally to an agent. With an omnichannel contact center, the data is passed along to the agent, which saves time and alleviates frustration.

The Five9 survey also asked consumers about their expectation on the time taken to solve a support question. Nineteen percent of respondents expect to have their issues resolved in under five minutes, and 46% under 15 minutes. Multichannel systems can waste precious time, as they require the customer to provide the same information — often multiple times.

The growth of social media, chat and other communications mediums has sparked speculation that voice in the contact center is on life support. The data from the survey shows that voice is not only still alive, but it’s the preferred mode of communication across all age groups. 

However, at the same time, voice alone is not enough now. Businesses need to prioritize evolving their contact centers to omnichannel systems. 

Wanted – Cheap decent desktop or All in One

Say about the 200 mark and since you are in Harrow I can drop or you could collect. I might have a cheapo keyboard and mouse combo kicking around that I can throw in.

I bought the unit a little while back with a broken screen, however after purchase I found that the replacement screens were damn expensive (uses a screen that works in imacs…) and UK stock was uber rare. I ended up having to get one shipped in from aliexpress and got hit with customs charges too…. :(

I spoke to the wife who was using it last, so I would need her to back up her stuff off in and then reformat it for you.

Would you like some pics of it?

Cutting-edge Microsoft data center fuels a new vision for global energy efficiency

In an industrial Seattle warehouse with plywood walls and exposed pipes, a group of about 60 people gathered Wednesday to mark a breakthrough that Washington Gov. Jay Inslee believes “we will look back on and be very proud.”

The innovation — developed by Microsoft, McKinstry, and Cummins — isn’t as sexy as the smartphone or surprising as the voice-controlled speaker but it could have big implications for the future of cloud computing and sustainable energy. Today, those three companies unveiled the Advanced Energy Lab, a pilot program designed to prove that energy-hungry data centers can be powered by fuel cells.

In a gleaming white room in the warehouse sits a 20-rack data center concept with fuel cells mounted above. Natural gas is pumped directly into the fuel cells and then converted to power to run the racks. The goal is to replace the traditional way data centers are powered, by moving energy over long distances from power plants through substations before converting it into the right voltage at its final destination. The fuel cell technology could herald a big shift away from that method, reducing the energy loss that occurs by transporting and converting the energy.

“This is small but it can grow into very, very significant industrial applications,” Inslee said.

Microsoft and other tech giants have been working to develop more sustainable ways to operate their massive and growing data centers, which hold everything from your employer’s shared documents to your kid’s homecoming photos.

As information increasingly moves to the cloud, companies like Microsoft are forced to expand their data centers to keep up, which butts up against the company’s energy efficiency goals.

“This is a necessary challenge for us to surmount,” Inslee said during the presentation and unveiling ceremony. “Because we like our data, we like it in gigabytes, and we also like to breath clean air and we insist on both of those accomplishments at the same time.”

If the fuel cell technology proves viable and cost-effective, it could extend beyond data centers. It would be particularly useful for facilities that require electricity and water heating, like apartment buildings, restaurants, and hospitals, according to Microsoft Principal Sean James, who is managing the data center program.

James also said the fuel cells could be powered by renewable energy sources but that isn’t currently feasible for data centers.

“Unfortunately, if you need a lot of gas right now your choice is really, practically, natural gas,” he said. “We’re not satisfied with that. We’re going to be really pushing the industry.”

Funding for the Advanced Energy Lab comes from Microsoft, McKinstry, Cummins, Siemens, and the Washington State Department of Commerce’s Clean Energy Fund. The concept data-center isn’t online yet but engineers will use it to run tests and prepare the technology for real-world deployment.

James is staying mum on the timeline but “whenever it is, it’s not going to be fast enough for me,” he said.
