7 Contact Centres Trends in 2021

From 2020 to 2021, the world has been tested by the Covid-19 pandemic. This pandemic has an impact on several aspects, such as economy, business, tourism, education, etc. The existence of a pandemic requires us to work at home and limits the number of employees in the office.


The work from home system forces us to use high-quality digital technology. This also happened to the contact center business. The good news is that Genesys and Solutif have anticipated this rapid change. Together, Genesys and Solutif have taken it head-on and transformed operations to provide customers with the services they expect, in the ways they expect - via phone, chat, email, social channels, or other channels.

Not only that, Genesys and Solutif have also analyzed 7 contact center trends in 2020.
