Discussing the relationship between customers, technology and contact center agents to explore how customer experience has changed over the years and what has remained the same.
Back in the 1990s, BT (formerly British Telecom) was already designing and evaluating the deployment of artificial intelligence in contact centers. Part of their project team was Dr Nicola Millard, a social scientist and now Principal Innovation Partner, Enterprise CTIO at BT. She’s fascinated by the interplay between people and technology, innovating both employee and customer experience (EX and CX).
