Work-from-Home Contact Center: See the Full Picture with Interaction Analytics

Over the past few weeks, most contact centers have transitioned some or all their agents to a work from-home environment—no easy task.

COVID-19 is challenging for everyone, and especially for organizations who play important roles in supporting their communities.
