The Future of Customer Service: Emerging Technologies and
- 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.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
