In a multichannel world, customers are becoming 'shopper swots', often cutting organisations out of the conversation until the last minute. The role of the contact centre is becoming less about processing calls and more about complex problem solving, providing advice and reassurance, as well as being the hub for new channels, such as webchat and social media. All this means that the contact centre is morphing into something that has never been before - a networked (and increasingly virtualised) hub of expertise.Clouds, crowds and autonomous customers: doing business as unusualDAY 2Wednesday 12 October 2011 10:45 - 11:301DAY 1DAY
