Multichannel Contact Center vs. Omnichannel Contact Centers

Multichannel differs greatly from omnichannel by how smooth the journey is for the customer. Customers don’t want a tough time getting the support they need, and a multichannel setup only sets up roadblocks that make it hard for them to solve their issues. 

It is true, a multichannel contact center supports the same digital channels as an omnichannel contact center. But a multichannel contact center does it worse, forcing friction and disorder onto the customer experience. A multichannel contact center does not support seamless channel switching. If a customer wants to interact on another channel, they need to disconnect the current interaction and reopen the interaction on another one. They also get disconnected from the agent that is currently working on their issue and have to go to a completely new agent. This further complicates the experience since the customer has to repeat the issue from the beginning. 

Multichannel offering covers some of the same service channels that an omnichannel, ranging from traditional to digital channels. But a multichannel contact center doesn’t allow for the conversation to switch between the channels smoothly. Customers that want to interact on another channel need to disconnect from the current interactions and reopen the interaction on another one, often having to go through a different live agent than the previous one. This means customers have to repeat themselves, leading to a disjointed customer experience. A multichannel offering is oftentimes also consisted of separate, bolted-on systems that are disjointed from one another, 

An omnichannel approach eliminates friction in a customer journey by allowing customers to seamlessly switch between channels while the context of the conversation is saved and followed by the agent. Your business can communicate with customers on their preferred channel, helping you meet customers preferences more consistently. For example, a customer interaction can start on a web chat on the website. This inbound interaction can then be switched to another one of the customer’s preferred channels. Customer service agents can switch the web chat conversation into a text message conversation, allowing the customer to begin texting the agent while the customer history of the conversation is still at the agent’s fingertips. 

Benefits of Omnichannel Customer Experience

Providing an omnichannel experience is one of the best ways to boost customer satisfaction and exceed customer expectations. Providing omnichannel customer service provides a wide number of benefits for your business. Here are some of the benefits of implementing omnichannel communications and delivering omnichannel experiences to customers: 

  • Delivering omnichannel experiences means that customers get a personalized experience that allows for quick and efficient channel switching. 
  • Grow your business to adapt to new channels that enter the digital CX space, including messenger apps, web chat, and more. 
  • Improve customer satisfaction by meeting them on the channels they want to utilize to connect with your business.
  • Improving workforce management through specialization of agents and improving the way agents can follow the customer’s journey with your contact center

Advanced Omnichannel Routing in Your Cloud Contact Center

Advanced interaction and call routing is a necessity in omnichannel contact centers. Implementing advanced routing allows businesses to streamline the way customers communicate with the contact center. It can also create a consistent experience when customers are being routed to different channels within the same customer journey. Your contact center providers need in their platform advanced ACD algorithms to help drive conversations to the right resource. Effectively directing the customer to the right resource quickly and effectively across any channel is great for delivering great CX and keeping customers happy.

Quality Management in an Omnichannel Cloud Contact Center

Quality management in a contact center can often be difficult for many businesses, especially those that support a number of different channels and allows customers to connect on a wide range of digital channels. Traditionally, many businesses utilize sampling, which means that supervisors only review a small portion of conversations, usually on one channel, for quality management. This leaves a lot of gaps in knowledge, leaving a lot of the interactions in the contact center unreviewed and missing areas of improvement. With omnichannel quality management in contact center solutions, businesses are able to monitor 100% of all interactions on all channels in real-time, giving supervisors in the contact center a birds-eye view of how their operations are doing. With Bright Pattern’s Omni QM platform, supervisors can view the metrics and KPIs of their contact center, and get a comprehensive view of CX operations by being able to monitor 100% of all interactions on all channels. This allows them to optimize the customer journey, improve customer engagement, and improve customer retention by identifying areas of improvement. 

Real-Time Interaction Intervention

One of the special features of having an omnichannel quality management platform with built-in AI and sentiment detection is real-time analytics. This, in turn, means that through sentiment and text analysis, negative interactions can be detected in real-time by the AI. These negative interactions that are detected in the moment can then be routed to a retention specialist, who can salvage the interaction. The recording of the interaction and customer information is then sent to a supervisor, who can review them and retrain the agent accurately. 

Use cases like this highlight the possibility with an omnichannel quality management platform, as on Omni QM with AI integrations, supervisors can prevent any bad interaction from being unseen and can gain a comprehensive real-time view of the contact center.

Tips to Transition Your Contact Centers to an Omnichannel Contact Center Solution

Going from a multichannel contact center platform to an omnichannel CX platform can be easy and painless. There are some best practices for omnichannel contact centers that you should follow to ensure that the transition to an omnichannel solution is an easy and seamless experience for your business, agents, and customers. Here are the tips and best practices to best implement your omnichannel strategy. 

  1. Understand the Customer Journey 
    Understanding the customer journey in your contact center is the first step to implementing omnichannel effectively in your contact center. Every business and every industry has different needs out of their contact center, and the customer needs for different industries vary. Because of this, one of the best ways to start implementing omnichannel is figuring out what channels customers use the most. Journey mapping is critical to ensure that all customer touchpoints that are the most critical are being met.This ensures that your contact center provides the right personalized experience that your customers are looking for, and that your contact center is tailored to support these customers on their preferred channels. Once the most important communication channels are established and working well, adding more channels on top should be easy and seamless depending on the platform. This will ensure that the workflows that are built for your business are important and tailored to your use case. 

  2. Identify the Top Channels 
    Implementing omnichannel and making the transition seamless starts with the top channels that your contact center supports. Channels like email, web chat, messenger apps, voice, and more are all utilized by customers, but figuring out the top channels is critical in implementing omnichannel and transitioning smoothly. Start with the top 3 channels that your contact center utilizes, and slowly add more channels over time as other channels become very established as part of the customer experience.

  3. Implement a Cloud-Based Solution 
    Another aspect of implementing omnichannel centers for CX is ensuring that the platform is hosted on the cloud rather than on-premise. In the modern digital age of communication, channels are rapidly evolving, with the emergence and increase in popularity of channels like messenger apps and social media. By hosting your platform on the cloud, your business can easily add new channels to the contact center, improving omnichannel customer service and keeping up with the changing customer needs. 

  4. Have an Effective Quality Management System in Place 
    Having an effective quality management system in place is necessary when implementing new channels as part of an omnichannel platform. This starts out by having a system in place to score agents and retrain them. It then moves on to implementing the right platform that can help your contact center detect negative interactions, and having the tools to find them. Finally, figuring out what metrics your industry or use case most heavily relies on for better CX is critical in implementing effective quality management in your contact center. 

  5. Effective, Comprehensive Agent Training 
    Adding new channels and implementing an omnichannel cloud contact center means that agents need to be trained on how to best deliver customer service. Omnichannel call centers support a wide range of traditional and digital channels, and providing an omnichannel experience can be a daunting task for agents. With the right training in your omnichannel cloud contact centers, call center agents can better deliver a personalized experience for the customer, while improving your call center’s employee experiences as well. 

Providing Seamless Cross-Channel Experiences

Part of the beauty in an omnichannel platform is being able to provide a seamless cross-channel experience. Allow customers to switch between any different number of channels effortlessly while the agent follows along with the full context of the conversation at their fingertips. 

Providing a cross-channel experience makes for a great and modern customer journey that’s very high-tech, advanced, and personalized. By allowing customers to utilize any channel they want and switch between channels, customers are able to have more flexibility in how they communicate with your business, and your business is able to reach a larger audience. Providing a cross-channel experience also breaks down the silos between channels, removing any disjointed feelings the customer may have during their journey through multiple channels. 

Integrating AI Into Your Call Center

Integrating artificial intelligence into your contact center is a great way to boost productivity of agents while improving CX. Integrating AI gives the opportunity for call centers to utilize self-service options, like interactive voice response. With the power of natural language processing, or NLP, conversational AI can be used to help guide the customer through self-service IVR menus. Through effective IVR systems, your customers can be directed to knowledge bases that can help them resolve their own issues. When that option is exhausted, customers can be easily directed to live agents that will help them on their issues, no matter what channel they connect on.

Integrating Call Center Tools Into Your Contact Center

While having an omnichannel platform that supports all channels in a seamless customer journey is important, it’s also important to be able to easily integrate other call center tools into your contact center platform. This means integrating things like workforce management tools, customer record management systems, AI, Microsoft products like Microsoft Teams, and more. This means finding a platform with open APIs that allow you to easily integrate the tools you need to run a seamless, effective contact center operation. Bright Pattern provides open APIs that can help your call center integrate many different tools and advanced technology into the platform, including open APIs for various different record management systems, Microsoft Teams, workforce management solutions, best-of-breed AI, and more. Bright Pattern’s open API can also be integrated into your preferred record management system, allowing Bright Pattern to be a complement to your existing solutions easily.

Bright Pattern’s Comprehensive CRM Integrations

Bright Pattern allows businesses to integrate any third-party CRM, including Salesforce, Zendesk, Microsoft Dynamics 365, and Oracle ServiceCloud. Bright Pattern can even integrate a natively-built record management system, adding omnichannel cloud communication software to your existing CRM. Bright Pattern utilizes open APIs to integrate with many CRMs and can be custom tailored to integrate with your existing CRM, making accessing a database easy and effective. This means that customer information can be delivered right to the agent’s fingertips for a better customer experience.

Using a CRM in an Omnichannel Call Center

Having a CRM integration in your omnichannel CX software is critical for providing seamless customer experiences while allowing the customer service agent to keep up with the customer journey. Keeping up with multiple channels in an omnichannel system means needing an advanced record management system that can keep track of the customer journey. 

With the right platform, integrating a comprehensive CRM is critical as it improves agent productivity and allows agents to improve customer service by keeping up with the conversation. A CRM integration delivers customer data to the fingertips of the agents, allowing them to keep up with the customer no matter which communication channel they are on. On Bright Patterns platform, for example, customer data can be popped up for the agent at the moment customers engage with the call center, allowing live agents to catch up on the context of the conversation. 

Why Customer Journey Mapping is Important

Mapping the customer journey is important for an omnichannel contact center because from doing that, you can get an idea of the most popular channels that your customers utilize as well as the typical journey of customers and the channels that they switch between. By mapping the customer journey and figuring out which channels are the most popular, your business can create specially-tailored customer journeys that are best suited to be the most efficient and effective in handling the customer’s issue. This, in turn, makes the contact center more efficient, helps empower agents, and moves the customer through the customer journey more seamlessly. 

Customized Channel Flows for Common Customer Interactions

Customizing the way the customer journey goes, from how channels are switched to the different options for switching from one channel to the next creates a personalized, yet efficient workflow that can help you not only deliver a better experience, but also get them through the customer journey more efficiently. Tailoring the experience to specific workflows makes contact center operations more streamlined and efficient, as agents can be trained thoroughly on the customer journey and know how to handle the interaction. It also leads to more efficient routing and use of queues, making contact center operations more effective and creating a more frictionless customer journey.

Bright Pattern features a robust Scenario Builder that tailors the customer journey to match any use case, and allows supervisors and administrators to develop workflows that perfectly match the customer journey and make it as efficient and smooth as possible for both the customer and the agent. 

Improving Inbound Interactions With Self-Service

Inbound interactions are the main focal point of customer service for many businesses. As a result, many businesses receive a ton of inbound interactions on all different types of channels. To help make the contact center more efficient while giving the customer more options, self-service can be implemented as part of the customer journey. This self-service, however, needs to be a part of the customer journey and needs to have many options for customers to seek other forms of assistance with the interaction. Depending on the technology in the platform, your business can be capable of providing personalized, effective self-service. 

With Bright Pattern, for example, your contact center can integrate AI and speech recognition to implement a powerful conversational IVR. Instead of needing to utilize a number pad on their phone, customers can utilize the power of their natural speech to navigate the menu, leading to a more personalized experience while being able to help the customer faster. Rather than having the customer wait for their options and enter the corresponding number, they can now use their natural voice to faster navigate the menu and get the assistance they need.

Providing Personalized Inbound Interactions Through Any Channel

For a modern omnichannel contact center, accepting inbound interactions through any channel is critical. This means channels like voice, email, text messaging, messenger apps, and more are required to be part of the contact center. However, inbound interactions should also be personalized to provide the best possible customer experience. Personalizing inbound interactions is done through integrating self-service, integrating CRMs and record management systems, training agents, and supporting the channels that customers want to use. A customer should be able to switch between the channels seamlessly, personalizing the CX journey.
