Investment Report

Once upon a time, it was the "call center". But as time progressed and the customer journey became the centralized focus of organizational success, the once "call center" has now been developed into the customer contact center. Contact Center Executives today know that the contact center may be the only communication their customers have with their brand and because of that, they need to ensure that every customer touchpoint is being developed and no opportunity is being overlooked. 

Our CCW Executive Exchange delegation is coming together to network in a peer to peer environment and discuss their challenges as well as meet with world leading solution providers who have been sourced and brought on specifically to adhere to their active tasks. 

Here, you will find the priority investments for the executives coming this December 3-5, to the Omni Nashville Hotel. Do you offer a cutting-edge solution? Let us know.
