What a great time of year. It is Halloween as I write this so I am thinking about gremlins, ghosts and goblins. Of course, there are unicorns, ladybugs and princes. Kind of reminds me of our contact centers. There is the scary, the delightful and the practical. And that just about sums up our November issue of Contact Center Pipeline.
We discuss video in our centers, customer experience this retail season, cloud WFM, cloud implementation, cloud solutions and culture…the gremlins and ladybugs!! Some scary, some delightful.
Please enjoy our November issue. I love your comments, [email protected].
