In the November 2013 issue of Contact Center Pipeline, includes an article by Susan Hash titled “Using VOC to Drive Agent Performance.” The article provides a great connection between the trust I discussed in my previous two posts and the reality of today’s contact center.
The September 2013 issue of CRM Magazine, includes “Which Interaction Channels are Most Popular,” by Leonard Klie. Klie writes that multichannel options remain common for customer service, many companies share ownership for the integration among consumer affairs and marketing, often with customer care coming in third.

In the July 2013 issue of CRM Magazine, Denis Pombriant writes “Making the Play with CRM,” an article which details the similarities between customer service and a classic American pastime. While it may seem to be a bit of a stretch, Pombriant bases his comparison on the proactive nature of both endeavors.
