“I think the first thing you got to do is take a look at your organization or your challenge in a holistic way, rather than trying to solve a sort of a day-to-day or a very specific problem in a contact center. Because what happens when you try to do that is you find that you’re going to have a lot of resistance internally…we have seen some clients have success where they almost have a parallel organization running an automation program.”
