Fonolo Announces June Webinar on “One Contact Resolution” with SQM Group

Toronto, ON – June 14, 2016 – Fonolo, the pioneer in cloud-based call-back solutions for the contact center, has announced its next webinar, “5 Ways to Master ‘One Contact Resolution’”. The webinar will air on Thursday, June 23rd at 2 PM ET / 11 AM PT with call center experts Andrea Pow, SVP of Client Advocacy at SQM Group and Shai Berger, Co-Founder and CEO at Fonolo.

Recent data reveals that 42% of customers who do not experience One Contact Resolution (OCR) report low satisfaction levels and negative Net Promoter Scores, making this a critical metric for call centers to track. Fonolo and SQM have teamed up for this informative webinar with a clear vision in mind: To help contact centers lower costs and improve the customer experience by mastering OCR.

“With digital channels growing in popularity, the contact center needs a metric that can accurately capture the multi-channel experience,” said SQM’s Andrea Pow. “I look forward to sharing industry data and best practices that will give webinar attendees confidence in their OCR strategy.”

“We’re excited to have Andrea Pow co-host this webinar,” said Fonolo’s Shai Berger. “We pride ourselves on improving the customer experience by replacing hold time with a call-back and, with SQM, we can take things one step further by listening to the voice of the customer and helping call centers achieve OCR.”

In this one-hour webinar call center professionals will learn how to properly deliver, measure, and improve OCR. To register, please visit: 5 Ways to Master “One Contact Resolution”
