New Features!

SpiceCSM v8.0 has many new features designed to streamline common tasks and improve user productivity and performance.


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.



Scheduled Events

Scheduled EventsNew interactive mini displays allow users to interact with the event to review and perform common tasks quickly and easily.

Documenting “No Answers” and “Left Message” are as simple as a button click, and you can even reschedule events at the same time.







Review Listing

Review Listing

Interactive mini display allows Supervisors to quickly review the case and perform streamlined tasks for escalating a case or sending it back to the agent population for further interaction.






The start tab melds brand/campaign information and account searching into one tab. No more clicking between tabs during account lookups.






Account Searches

The account search functionality has been streamlined so that users can easily perform advanced searches or add new accounts, all from the Start tab. Search results have also been revamped and organized for better visibility.

Brand/Campaign List

Brand campaign list

Brand/Campaign data details are now immediately available upon selection. Access to full details is a button click away.









The account screen now displays account contacts in separate tabs for easier access and visibility. Some additional functionality that has been revamped are case lockout, scheduled event completion, and new case window.



Case Lockout

When a case is being worked, the account tab in which the case is open cannot be closed until proper action is taken and the case is wrapped up.

Scheduled Event Completion

Schedules Event CompleteionScheduled event completion is now confirmed at the end of the guided process so that if the event is not completed for whatever reason it can simply be left attached to the case.





New Case

New CaseThe new case window has also been streamlined as the Journal, Knowledgebase, and Email functions have moved directly into the guided process window.






Guided Process

In SpiceCSM v8.0 the guided process section has been streamlined to provide quick and easy access to all case functions. These functions are now shown as tabs along the top of the guided process and can be accessed at any time during the guided process. Journal entries can now have canned responses for working cases via email. In addition, the journal entry now displays any entered journal notes below for the user’s reference.

The Citizen Architect Persona

We built our platform to be put into the hands of a “Citizen Architect”, someone you probably already have in your organization.  The persona of a Citizen Architect is going to be someone with an understanding of how processes work and the intricacies of the specific operating procedures.  These resources do not need to be overly technical, however any grasp of HTML or Programming can certainly help relate some of the general concepts and best practices we recommend when using SpiceCSM.  Many of our clients exclusively use non-technical resources to manage all their business process and content management while allowing technical resources to focus on the connections that push and pull data between those processes.

Trending: Phased Deployments

At SpiceCSM we have noticed a growing trend in deployment methodologies used when implementing a client's solution. When working with clients who have many overarching project goals or other unique complexities involved, we have seen many of them turn to a phased “crawl, walk, run” approach to maximize their returns and make the deployment work more seamlessly.  The concept applied here simply means that by offering an incremental approach to deploying a project or use case we try to avoid being so far sighted that it prevents progress towards a more immediately usable solution.  Instead, by focusing on and solving “micro-projects”, the synergy of those projects being completed in a more timely manner can have as big if not a bigger impact on the organization than one large project done in the same amount of time.

“By 2020, 60% of large organizations will try to design a customer engagement hub, yet only half of them will select the correct technologies to make it work.”
