Maintaining strong customer relationships is key to business success, especially during times of uncertainty. Contact center agents are on the front lines interacting with customers on a daily basis, getting to know their most pressing needs and solving their core issues. Empowering agents with the right tools is essential to personalizing the experience, solving complex problems and meeting consumers’ expectations.
“Flexibility and adaptability have never been more important for businesses,” said Paul Jarman, CEO, NICE inContact. “Customer needs are changing almost daily, so it’s important that agents have access to all the relevant customer information along with the tools to support customers quickly and efficiently. Our partnership with Zendesk ensures that agents have a full view of the customer in an easy-to-use workspace.”
