Upstream: TaCKLING Dis-Integration

The biggest challenge to an optimised customer experience is dis-integration. If your business operates using separate systems, departments, information and databases, it is impossible for agents to work productively.

THE CHALLENGE

These silos drive inconsistency, errors and inconsistent service to customers, opening the door for competitors to sweet talk them away from your business. By connecting and unifying existing systems across lines of business, brand ambassadors have all the tools, information and insights needed to provide personalized, predictive customer care.

BE WHERE YOUR CUSTOMERS ARE

 Customers may reach out in a number of different ways, and frequently move between channels when engaging with your brand. At any time they expect their issues to be handled effectively, whether they’ve chosen to interact with your business via social media, chat, phone or bot. An effective omnichannel integration strategy means providing a channel-less experience, giving you the KPIs, reports, and analytics needed for accurate and predictive measurement of channel activity and performance. Upstream Works for Finesse brings together all channels, interactions and applications across all lines of business for a seamless, effortless, and informed customer experience.
