5 NEW awards explained
This year the Chair of the Judges, Ann-Marie Stagg, has introduced FIVE new awards. These awards reflect the changing nature of the contact centre and customer service industry. Here we take a look at them in a little more detail:
Best Customer Engagement Initiative
All organisations are looking to drive up customer engagement. Digital is the most commonly used mechanism to do that. The question is, do you have a customer engagement initiative that has delivered great results? You may have wanted to promote channel shift, needed to keep customers close during a period of business change, had a need to educate customers on a new product, legislation or business risk, or wanted to build brand loyalty through a CSR initiative. What was your reason to engage customers and did you achieve it?
Most Effective Digital Customer Experience
This category is looking for organisations that are delivering initiatives across one or more digital channels that complement or enhance an existing customer journey. For example, it may be a webchat project that enhances an existing voice experience, or it may be a more complex experience delivered across email, webchat and social channels.
Most Effective Management of Peak Demand
Managing peak demand in the contact centre is one of the biggest challenges customer contact leaders have to address. Whether its seasonal peaks, weather related incidents or emergency situations, this category will recognise the organisations that have demonstrated their ability to respond brilliantly to an uplift in customer contact.
Best New Contact Centre
The industry continues to grow every year there are quite a number of new contact centres. This award will recognise new contact centre operations in their first 18 months. This may be a greenfield site, or it may be a relocation, site transformations or centralisation of contact centre operations.
Giving Something Back
This category recognises the tremendous work that the customer contact industry does in supporting others – including national events like Comic Relief, charity donations, pro bono work and local community initiatives.
