Integrity of the Customer Experience (CX) in the holistic sense includes Change Management policies and practices that minimize risks and downtime during those increasingly frequent changes and upgrades. The philosophies surrounding DevOps automation can pay big dividends here, but need to be applied to every major component of the infrastructure delivering the CX. This panel assembles two of the Contact Center industry’s experts in automating the best practices of Configuration Management and, naturally, leveraging Cyara’s test automation to ensure each step in Contact Center evolution is done with the highest possible integrity.

A Point of View vs. Data-Driven Insights

Are your insights about your CX based on opinion and operational assumptions or hard data? Beyond best practice testing for IVR script accuracy and routing integrity, Cyara monitoring technology provides data on a technical area impacting the customer experience – voice quality. We listen to calls to understand the interaction drivers of customer loyalty, but those drivers are impactful only when our telephony platforms enable clear and effective communications. Join this session to glean customer loyalty insights across diverse industries, shatter a few long-held customer experience biases, and uncover pragmatic steps for improving voice quality and the customer experience. Marshall McLuhan, the Canadian educator, scholar, and visionary said it best: “A point of view can be a dangerous luxury when substituted for insight and understanding.”
