Specialists Are Predicting the Rise of the Virtual Contact Center

What Is the Virtual Contact Center?

A virtual contact center is defined by a lack of a physical location where agents are situated at predefined work stations. Instead, you have a virtual operating space with live agents connecting to it from all over the world.

What’s With all the Buzz?

The sudden and dire need of efficient remote contact center solutions uncovered a grave flaw in the system: over 70% contact centers are still using on-premise solutions that will, eventually, lead to their demise.

Customers want rapid solutions and many are now looking at how a company responded to the COVID-19 crisis, how they managed to protect their employees, and how they handled the sudden influx of calls. For all these problems there was a single, simple solution – adopting a cloud-based solution that allows contact centers to send their agents home.

Industry Predictions

While market analysis shows that the industry will benefit from a steady growth, it’s important to remember the catalyst mentioned by the reports – new technology. So, keeping that in mind, let’s see what specialists predict for the next 2 years:

• Contact Centers that don’t adhere to the virtual space will lose clients to the more progressive businesses in the competition.

• RPA technology combined with an omnichannel solution can help contact centers raise their customer processing rates, driving business.

Voice will be slowly replaced by chat solutions.

• Customers will take their business to companies that can assure them the security they need.
