With customers at the heart of every company, organizations who align their business strategies with the evolving demands of their customer base have an advantage. Nowhere is this more true than in contact center environments, which carry the burden of providing a quality customer experience when it is most needed. Automated end-to-end testing and monitoring detects and prevents issues across your contact center IVR applications, infrastructure and networks before your customers are affected. Why put customer experience at risk?
Despite all the attention NFV is getting, there are areas that still need to be explored. For example, most of the discussion today revolved around the technology and the various options to adopt it, but few are thinking further down the road about how to ensure Service Assurance functions in these highly abstracted and complex virtual environments.
Empirix has expanded its portfolio of contact center test and monitoring solutions through a partnership with change management solutions company blackchair Limited, the company announced today. Integrating blackchair’s Spotlight change management suite with Empirix’s existing contact center test and monitoring solutions will enable organizations to improve customer experiences, take operational processes to the next level of maturity, reduce costs and mitigate risk with faster, more rigorous configuration release management and agnostic auditing. Organizations will now be able to quickly detect problems and trace them back to changes in the contact center environment.
Today’s communications environments are very complex. If you’re not monitoring your systems on a consistent and constant basis, you will undoubtedly run into trouble. At the same time, a comprehensive solution has to have a variety of functionalities in order to successfully monitor this type of environment.
No matter how solid a communications system is when it’s first implemented, things tend to go wrong over time. As you add new technology, change settings, have increased voice or data volumes, and more, it becomes a requirement that you monitor your communications systems to ensure they run as expected.
