Agent desktops often resemble air traffic control screens, because of the many applications that have been added during a call center’s evolution. Navigating the clutter and retyping information into these multiple applications slows the interaction, increases the chance of errors, and ultimately increases costs.
Upstream Works’ UpStart Interaction Hub for Agents automates multiapplication agent desktops and workflows based on the customer’s prior experiences and current needs. We address the gap between single application automation solutions from telephony vendors and the “unified desktop” solutions.
Though ROI is easily justified based on agent handle time reductions alone, the customer history and knowledge tools support First Contact Resolution to reduce the total number of calls. Integration of UpStart with Business Interaction Manager automates First Contact Resolution tracking, backed up with call by call performance data.
