(2) Cutting-edge technology
As a model next-gen digital contact center, the center has primarily adopted a cloud phone system. It is built on a system that makes it easier to smoothly deploy the latest digital services such as an automatic AI voice responder feature, chatbot and AI response services. It is also easy for the center to shift to a work-from-home environment without worrying about preparing telephone equipment. In addition, the center is equipped with voice and emotion recognition systems that help achieve higher customer satisfaction and deliver a great customer experience (CX).

On top of preparing such equipment, transcosmos is driving an initiative to make its agents obtain “The Chat Live Master Certification (*),” the company’s certification program that evaluates and certifies employees who have certain levels of expertise and skills, thereby delivering its operational services that meet the latest trends in addition to call support.
(3) Backup framework for work-from-home arrangements
The center has necessary facilities for hiring, training and conducting OJT that enable agents to perform contact center operations from home, as well as backup features for work-from-home operations. Such arrangements enable transcosmos to offer hybrid operations using both center and work-from-home agents, and to convert the center to 100% work-from-home contact center in times of emergency.
