Is There Such as Thing as a Technology ‘Silver Bullet’?

Lights heading in a direction - solution concept

In this episode of QStory’s Dear Dave, Solution Consultant Dave Preece will focus on the main problems experienced by contact centres these days – and how QStory can help you to face them head on.

Recently, I did some research on significant problems that contact centres are facing in 2022. I read dozens of articles and no two articles agreed 100% on the biggest issues, but it was clear that there are some recurring themes which have been around for years.

These are around technology, absenteeism, attrition, engagement and budget. Now, it doesn’t mean nobody has TRIED to address them – but they are difficult things to overcome in a dynamic, ever changing contact centre environment

Too often, technology isn’t an enabler, but something which requires manual workarounds or complex manual supporting processes.

Absenteeism and attrition have their roots in the same thing – businesses are just not providing enough compelling reasons for workers to fully engage with their role and give 100% to it.

And budget is a constraint that everybody in the industry has to work within – the key in this area is to do as much as you possibly can within those constraints.

So, Dear Dave viewers have asked me, ‘Can I address all of the main issues being faced in my contact centre today with one single silver bullet solution?’
