Beyond the cloud contact centre - reimagining service delivery

Show Notes

PCI Pal was invited to join our partner, 8x8 and joint customer, Liverpool City Council, to speak at this year’s SOCTIM President’s Week conference.

In 2020, spurred on by lockdown, public sector IT leaders found themselves at the forefront of a digital communications revolution. The race to keep staff and the local community connected saw many abandon their outdated on-premises systems in favour of cloud communications.

Once the immediate need to securely enable a remote contact centre was addressed, innovative organisations, like Liverpool City Council, quickly realised that cloud communications provide far-reaching opportunities to reimagine how they serve the public.

This episode is the recording, taken from the conference, where PCI Pal’s Director – Channel Sales, Phil Jude, Liverpool City Council’s Assistant Director ICT, Alison Hughes and 8×8’s Public Sector Director, Russell Tilsed, discuss service delivery best-practice beyond the cloud contact centre and why the public sector is leading the way.

- The challenges and opportunities of enabling a cloud contact centre

- Lessons learned about empowering an agile workforce

- What does good communication look like in the post-pandemic era?

- How IT leaders can shape public service delivery models

- Maximising performance using AI and IVR automation

- How public sector organisations can secure payments while operating remotely

- How having the right technology and security solutions in place are key to maximising performance, while also remaining fully compliant.
