Forget “Omnichannel:” Your Future Is Intelligent Customer Engagement

November 13, 2018

We’re even hearing from so-called experts that up to 80% of the call center can be “automated away.” If you believe the tech purists, any function reliant on the efforts of good, honest, hard-working people can—and will—be replaced by software platforms. If you’ve built a career on the red-headed stepchild of the enterprise, these call-center death knells are no doubt giving you nightmares about a dystopian future full of empty cubicle wastelands.
