etalk Announces Innovative eLearning in the Contact Center
Qfiniti Expert Makes Training Content Available as Real-time Agent Resource
DALLAS, Texas, August 1/-- etalk, a division of Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L) and leading provider of contact center recording and analytics solutions, today announced the availability of Qfiniti Expert 3.0 for agent eLearning. Qfiniti Expert automates agent education through the targeted, intelligent delivery of online training programs. Moving beyond traditional approaches to contact center training, Qfiniti Expert takes the next step to extend training content as a real-time information resource during customer-agent interactions.
"Traditional eLearning systems provide agents with desktop training that is typically not reviewed after passing the course," says Scott Shute, etalk CEO. "Qfiniti Expert not only facilitates the learning process during training but closes the loop later when the agent needs to refer to that information while on the line with the customer."
Qfiniti Expert users have the tools necessary to learn new concepts while at their desk, and subsequently access that material while on the phone, responding to email, or during interactive chats. This can be critical when new business information is communicated through the contact center.
Complicated financial, product, or healthcare updates may require repeated reference when dealing with customer inquiries. By providing easy search capabilities of this unstructured data, etalk allows agents to locate the right training information at the right time.
Qfiniti Expert online training can deliver significant cost savings in the contact center by keeping agents productive longer than with classroom training. As part of an etalk ROI study released earlier this year, Qfiniti Expert was found to produce a 50% reduction in training time. By further eliminating the 'herding factor', or time to logoff and make way to a classroom, this technology can easily cut the cost associated with delivering training in half. The etalk white paper, ROI - the Proof is in the Call Center, can be obtained at: http://etalk.com/roi_wp.
This new release further simplifies the training process with open authoring support, allowing pre-developed training material to be leveraged without modification. Training content from any SCROM compliant authoring tool can be delivered to agents through the Qfiniti Enterprise desktop using Qfiniti Expert. Customers can also take advantage of the etalk partnership with Pointecast Publisher for authoring tool options.
As a part of the Qfiniti Enterprise suite, Qfiniti Expert works in tandem with other modules to help contact center agents continually strive for customer service excellence. In addition to training material, agents can review recorded calls with performance tips, supervisor assessments, and customer satisfaction survey results that directly relate to the agent interaction. Qfiniti Enterprise delivers compliance recording, quality monitoring, agent evaluation and training, customer satisfaction surveys, performance management and advanced speech analytics - all in a single interface.
