A Cost Comparison of All-in-One versus Multi-Point Solutions In the Contact Center Sector
We completed a study into an emerging model of contact center technology – the all-in-one model — in which one vendor provides all needed solutions on a single platform. We surveyed the people and explored the processes that are keys to the acquisition and implementation of technology in today’s contact centers. In particular we sought to understand base-line decisions made regarding a “multiple point solution” approach as opposed to the “all-in-one” contact center suite approach.
Combining Service Excellence with Profitability
In today’s challenging business environment, customer contact centers are looking for ways to transform themselves from being cost centers to profit centers on their way to becoming strategic value centers, adding value to the whole enterprise. In a 2003 Aberdeen Group survey of customer service executives, 83% of the participants said that their contact center is critical or important to their enterprise. In 2004, Purdue University’s Center for Customer-Driven Quality surveyed C-level executives and found that in addition to their usual focus on cost reduction and revenue generation for call centers, their new demands included caller satisfaction, increased wallet share and increased market share.
