Sam Jackel, project director for contact center transformation with Westpac, will discuss successful customer-centric contact center voice deployments including the most critical aspects of application development, implementation, and change management, and how a customer-centric approach — coupled with a technical design, giving the business full control of the customer experience — yields staggering results within 6 months.

“We view Cyara as a key plank in our strategy around quality and efficiency,” says Jackel, “and use Cyara for end-to-end regression, systems integration, functional, stress, performance and load testing and real-time monitoring of the customer experience in the production environment.

Cyara CEO Alok Kulkarni will join Jackel as a speaker on Wednesday, and is set to highlight the impact of simulation, testing, and real-time customer experience monitoring of IVR applications through additional customer examples. He’ll discuss how some of the largest global contact centers are addressing concerns about how applications are performing under load, stress, business-as-usual and disaster recovery situations and whether the applications are performing as designed and delivering the intended customer experience.

“The Cyara Solution Suite, an automated, software based simulation, testing and monitoring platform, coupled with Cyara’s comprehensive  contact center transformation quality methodology,  is transforming enterprises’ contact centers with better customer experiences and dramatically reduced  risk and project timelines,” says Kulkarni.
