In SpiceCSM v8.0 the previous Home and Brand Details tabs have been replaced with the Dashboard and Start tabs.



The Dashboard tab gives immediate access to dynamic statistics based on the user’s access level and gives the user real-time agent and contact metrics in one tab. The supervisor Dashboard gives increased visibility into agent and contact metrics. Overall statistics can be viewed as well as broken down by Tier level. Scheduled events and review cases are also displayed in the dashboard tab.

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.

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

What we've been calling an "Enterprise Application Builder" is now being recognized by leading analysts as a Low-Code Application platform, or LCAP for short.
