Intuitive, omnichannel, and AI-ready, Vocalcom Hermes360 allows contact centres to improve the agent experience and customer satisfaction at the same time, regardless of location or communication channel used.
The COVID-19 crisis has deeply shaken up the business strategies of companies as well as the relationship between brands and their customers. All businesses have had to rethink their customer relationship and experience models, with an acceleration of customer journey digitalization, the adoption of new technologies such as artificial intelligence, and the rise in usage of social media channels by customers for communicating with brands. This unprecedented crisis has reinforced the role of contact centres which have to manage the customer relationship in a unified and seamless way across all communication channels – while giving agents the means to easily work remotely. These trends will continue and solidify overtime.
As a result, companies need intuitive and flexible customer relationship tools in order to adapt efficiently to these new communication methods while responding to current digitalization and remote working challenges.

However, the current context linked to COVID-19 is now speeding up the existing trends and requiring companies to communicate with their customers in a flexible and omnichannel manner, » explains Carlo Costanzia, President and CEO of Vocalcom. « At Vocalcom, we place our technological expertise and our know-how at the service of our customers in order to help them relieve these challenges.
