Knowledge Management in the Contact Center | Guest: Burgoyne Hughes
As the complexity of customer interactions continues to increase, the ability of contact centers to manage knowledge becomes progressively more important. Agents not only need accurate information; they need it quickly and in a format that is intuitive. An effective Knowledge Management System can reduce time to proficiency for new agents, lower handle times, improve first contact resolution, and drive customer satisfaction.

Bruce is Chancellor of the College of Call Center Excellence, which provides certificated courses to call center professionals, and has taught the course “Call Center Management” at Purdue University. He is the author of the book Benchmarking At Its Best for Contact Centers and has written numerous research papers and best practices studies focused on contact center topics. He is a consultant to call centers in a wide variety of industries seeking to improve their results, and is noted for helping to calculate the financial impact of proposed changes.
