Actionable Insights from Data

December 8; CRMXchange Webinar

Verint’s Daniel Ziv, vice president customer analytics, will participate in this 2 p.m. ET webinar that examines how leading organizations are mining human-to-human interactions to improve their digital channel strategy—and the strategic role of analytics and customer insights within a holistic customer engagement platform. Putting data to good use can make a big difference, but many companies are swimming in a sea of it and are not properly positioned to access it for improved customer interactions. Organizations need to sift through unstructured data to locate critical business intelligence that can help them deliver the right information, at the right time, across every channel. Multi-channel data—when properly unified—can be analyzed to help determine the relationships between the behaviors and attributes of customers and agents to benefit first-call resolutions, sales, and customer satisfaction and retention.
