SOCAP Ohio Presents: SOCAP Show & Tell 2018

Join the SOCAP Ohio chapter for an afternoon of Show & Tell networking! This very special social event is ONLY TWENTY DOLLARS to SOCAP members and is a great opportunity for you to bring something you’ve worked hard on and are very proud of or something you struggle with and would like advice on to your SOCAP Community.

We will have a few presenters "in the bag" but welcome anyone who comes to share an interesting business problem or something that they are particularly proud of about their customer experience operations!

In addition to being a valued member of the SOCAP Ohio Board of Directors, Beth Held is also the Director of Call Center Operations for Micro Center.  The center supports calls for the 25 retail stores across the country as well as the online business, and provides technical support for customers post-purchase.  The Micro Center Customer Care team handles just under 1 million contacts per year via phone, chat and email.   Currently, they are piloting text as a channel of customer engagement in 3 stores with 2 use cases.   Beth will discuss the wins, losses and lessons learned from this pilot as well as solicit feedback from others exploring this channel.

Micro Center is an American computer department store, which has its headquarters in Hilliard, Ohio. It is one of the top 200 of America's largest private companies.

Are you scratching your head trying to come up with new ways to engage, motivate and retain millenials in the contact center?  They’re more social, more technology-literate, more open and more ambitious.  In the workplace, this translates into a new breed of employee.  Sandy Murphy, Director – Business Solutions at HKT Teleservices wants to learn how others are working to keep these employees around for the long haul and will share some best practices on how HKT uses gamification to engage, track performance, incentivize and even train millenials.  Sandy will also share a recent case study on how gamification has helped them improve several metrics on their Airbnb program.
