Winning Ideas:

Click to Call: Using the API this functionality allows the agents to call a customer using the phone number field which will actually push a call out of the inContact agent.

Real Time Queue Management: Give your Supervisors and Management the ability to change skill, priority and agent from within the SpiceCSM application using the data pulled from within inContact in real time.

Event Injection: Using our callback functionality, when the customer is scheduled to be reached again SpiceCSM will push the event into inContact’s call queue, for the next available agent.

Spice Analytics: Case and call data all in one.

"We are all very proud of Pete." CEO, Mike Ryan stated. “I am really excited about the relationship that we have forged with inContact.

Reducing the Impact of Technology on Training

3 Ways to Reduce Training Time Using Technology If you really want to reduce training time, we challenge you to look at the technology your agents are using.  Is it simple to use?  Does it proactively help agents?  Does it make their jobs easier?  If you didn't answer YES to all of those questions, you could be complicating your training efforts out of the gate due to the technology your agents utilize to manage the customer journey.   One of the unsung heroes of SpiceCSM's Business Process/BPM tool is the ability to reduce the amount of time agents need to start producing at the levels of longstanding employees.  Typically when bringing new agents onto the team there's a period of training, usually involving some classroom knowledge transfer, exercises, role playing, and a variety of other methods to give the agents resources to solve requests efficiently.  Depending on the organization and type of business, this could take anywhere from 1 - 12 weeks, or longer.  In higher turnover environments this only exacerbates training challenges and emphasizes the need to make new employees more productive in less time.  Here are 3 ways you can utilize technology to help reduce training efforts:

What is iPaaS: Explaining Integration Capabilities What is iPaaS? iPaas is a cloud-based platform that allows businesses to connect their existing systems together.

This means they can view information from one application within another without having to switch between them.  The platform also makes it easy for people to build new integrations by providing low-code tools that allow connections to be made with external systems.
