LiveOps to Speak, Sponsor and Exhibit at ICMI Contact Center Expo & Conference

LiveOps, Inc., the global leader in cloud contact center and customer service solutions, announced today that Chairman and CEO Marty Beard and SVP and CMO Ann Ruckstuhl will join fellow industry thought leaders in a panel discussion on the future of customer service at the ICMI Contact Center Expo & Conference. LiveOps is a Gold sponsor of the event, which will be held May 6-9, 2014 at the San Diego Convention Center.

“We are honored to join Aaron Fulkerson, CEO of MindTouch, and Art Schoeller, vice president and principal analyst at Forrester, in a forward-thinking discussion on the impact of emerging technologies on customer care,” said Beard. “Customers are engaging with brands across multiple channels, including voice, email, chat, social and SMS, and brands need to integrate next-generation technologies into their contact centers so agents can deliver outstanding customer experiences every time. Session attendees will learn how incorporating such technologies and embracing multichannel customer experiences can accelerate their transformation into customer service superstars.”

LiveOps Speaking Sessions at the ICMI Contact Center Expo & Conference:

  • Thought Leadership Panel – Customer Experience
    • Wednesday, May 7, at 12:30 p.m. in the Expo Hall
    • Ann Ruckstuhl, CMO at LiveOps, will participate in highly interactive discussions on the customer experience. Attendees will come away with immediately actionable ideas to implement in their own center.
  • Solutions Spotlight: 7 Secrets to Delivering Amazing Customer Experience Panel Discussion
    • Thursday, May 8, from 1:30 – 2:15 p.m. in the Exhibit Hall
    • Ann Ruckstuhl, CMO at LiveOps, will moderate a panel discussion of technologists and practitioners on the seven winning secrets of top customer service organizations. We all know the positive correlation between customer experience and revenue. So what does it take nowadays to win and keep customers by delivering amazing customer experiences throughout the customer journey? This panel will focus on best practices across People, Process and Technology and how the optimal combination can enable organizations to put the “whoa!” back into customer experience.
  • The Future of Customer Service: Emerging Technologies and Multi-Channel Care
    • Thursday, May 8, from 4 – 5:15 p.m.
    • Marty Beard, CEO at LiveOps, and Ann Ruckstuhl, CMO at LiveOps, will join Aaron Fulkerson, CEO of MindTouch, and Art Schoeller, vice president and principal analyst at Forrester, in a panel discussion on leveraging emerging technologies to capitalize on the new generation of customer interactions. Today’s consumers are forcing brands to interact with them across all communications channels. They do not hesitate to publically voice their dissatisfaction with a brand via social media, presenting new challenges and opportunities for customer service. With every additional channel, the agent experience gets more challenging, and the customer experience is at risk. What does this new channel preference power mean for companies moving forward? Attendees will leave this session with solutions and actionable next steps for achieving success in this new era of customer service.

In addition to three speaking sessions, LiveOps will demonstrate the LiveOps Platform in booth 112. LiveOps Platform offers users cloud flexibility, intelligent multichannel routing, real-time reporting and interaction recording across every channel – voice, email, chat, SMS, Facebook and Twitter – along with a customer interaction database that offers a 360-degree view of the customer, all delivered at the highest cloud security standards. All of the customer information an agent needs is presented in a single, easy-to-use multichannel desktop and comprehensive suite of LiveOps Applications.
