      Power your digital transformation with Webex

      Changes in the way customers interact have transformed the role of the contact center. Customer expectations aside, fragmented implementations of omnichannel and siloed technology strategies have created disjointed and frustrating experiences for customers and businesses alike. Add rampant wage inflation and the great resignation, and you’re actually paying more for delivering a poorer customer experience. For many years, we have aspired to have world-class contact centers, but do customers want that anymore? What do customers really want? Come hear from Nuri Gocay, Cisco’s Chief CX Evangelist, as he describes the new role of contact centers in a larger digital strategy, and how proactive digital customer engagement can provide better outcomes for both you and your customers.

      Fueling great customer service through agile, modern contact center solutions and Chrome OS

      According to a recent survey by Google & Accenture, 39% of enterprise contact center agents are expected to be remote in the next 1-2 years and this number is expected to increase to 59% in the near future. Contact centers need to increase their agility by embracing more flexible and secure solutions to provide best-in-class customer service, secure business data, and reduce cognitive load on agents to enable them to be more productive. With a flexible technology architecture, service leaders can focus on their strategy, innovation, and the future without being locked into legacy technology constraints. In this session, learn more about new trends, how to evaluate your technology stack, cloud-first OS platforms, and leading modern contact center solutions that can keep your business on the cutting edge of contact center technology.

      Business Strategy for Product Builders: Market Entry Strategies & Predictions

      As Product Builders, we have an innate desire to build great products. However, to be a truly great PM, you must be able to take a step back and evaluate when and how to best enter a market (if at all). The first question you should always ask is why should we do this rather than jumping straight to how we do this. Without a clear strategy, your company will cease to exist.
