Quality programs and the use of evaluation forms may be the heart of most contact centres, but it’s important to keep your tools and methods fresh. Discover techniques to tighten your processes, improve your evaluation forms and visualize the results using your current Calabrio solution. Robin Butterfield, Quality Management and Analytics consultant, will share advanced features for automating call selection, innovative scoring and form use, and how to share and visualize quality trending results. You’ll walk away with ways to amp up your Quality program, including:

- The top 10 Analytics business use cases
After this session, you’ll be able to articulate the ROI Analytics can provide and how it can improve your bottom line.
Today, contact centres are inundated with customer data. In fact, a Forrester study showed the average company houses customer-related data on 15 different data systems. With these multiple, disparate data platforms, the case for using a streamlined customer intelligence hub is stronger than ever. In this session, Richard McElroy, general manager of the Innovation Center and Center of Excellence for Analytics, will take you through three common contact centre challenges you can tackle using reporting, including:
- How to remove data silos in your multichannel contact centre
- How to harness all ACD, IVR, WFO, WFM, CRM and ERP data – all without having to be an analytics pro
- How to see the bigger picture, one which will lead you to an in-depth view of the customer journey
You’ll walk away with a solid understanding of Calabrio Advanced Reporting and how it can help you better understand the customer journey, get ahead of issues and flex to the changing needs of your customers.
As we all adjust to the new normal under General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we keep hearing several common questions from our customers. This session will review GDPR’s impact on the contact centre and explain how Calabrio ONE can help your organisation meet GDPR compliance requirements. Manager, sales engineer EMEA Charlie Snedden will cover how Calabrio ONE addresses data protection and transfer, the right to be forgotten, how to supress recording and more.
We know you’ve spent time creating reports and dashboards that don’t quite hit the mark. In this session, Richard McElroy, general manager of the Innovation Center and Center of Excellence for Analytics, will show you how to create dashboards that are more than just pretty pictures. You’ll see examples of completed dashboards, and learn the types of reports that can generate it, so that you can start delivering impactful insights to the business.
A call study can help you identify the primary elements of the customer service experience, while at the same time quantifying the effort expended by customers and agents. In other words, you can use call studies to help you spot trends and potential issues before they become unmanageable. In this session, you’ll learn from Robin Butterfield, contact centre analytics consultant, on how to prep for your call study, the ideal methodology to use and how to understand your results. You’ll walk away with a practical strategy for how to apply call studies in your organisation.
Intraday Management can make or break your contact centre operation. In this interactive session, David Evans, sales engineer EMEA, and Kat Worman, workforce management product owner, will cover what Intraday Management is and why it’s so important to help you respond flexibly to dynamic customer and agent behaviour in your center. You’ll learn the dos and don’ts, key skills, and essential characteristics for successful Intraday managers. Learn how other organisations approach Intraday Scheduling and the steps they’re taking to add Intraday Dynamic Scheduling to their mix.
Join CEO Tom Goodmanson, SVP of Customer Success Doug Lang, SVP & GM of EMEA Kris McKenzie, plus CMO Rebecca Martin in a fireside chat as they talk about how you can use the Calabrio ONE suite to increase the size of your deals, all while creating stickiness within your accounts. You’ll hear how successful sellers capitalize on contact center changes—such as infrastructure upgrades and the move to the cloud. And you’ll learn how to position Calabrio to address the unique needs of enterprise buyers. You’ll walk away with tools you can use in your opportunities today!

In this session, presented by Charlie Snedden, EMEA sales engineer manager and Richard McElroy, general manager of the Innovation Center and Center of Excellence for Analytics, you’ll learn how these products can not only increase the size of your overall Calabrio opportunity, but drive value in your accounts by giving customers access to data for faster decision-making and true voice-of-the-customer insights.
Don’t let the quality management practice you’ve worked so hard to build become stagnant! QM processes can become entrenched within a contact centre, leading to some that are outdated and ineffective. In this session, you’ll learn from David Evans and Tom van Reeuwijk, sales engineers EMEA, on best practices for modern QM, including how often you should review your methods, and focus areas for improved quality.
Employee expectations are changing. Research shows millennials are looking for a job that sustains them emotionally as well as financially. In short, they want to feel like a valuable part of the business. In this interactive session lead by Charlie Snedden, manager, sales engineering EMEA, you’ll participate in a discussion on topics such as how to introduce agent self-service features, how to leverage alerts and build goals, gamification best practices and keeping that knowledgeable agent in your organisation. Share your own experiences, ask questions, and learn from your peers in this roundtable discussion.

You’ve created your forecasts and schedules for the next few weeks, but how can you elevate this function to drive greater impact to the business?
