  • Winning tip – “Going from call centre to contact centre, we couldn’t do the jump to multi-skilled agents at once, so we’re having to silo channels to separate groups of agents with a plan to merge once we understand the KPIs for each channel.
    The challenge we had initially was getting the right agents for the right role – great conversationalist agents who are good on the phone have different skills from those who are experts in grammar and speed of typing for webchat.” Thanks to Sean10
