SAN FRANCISCO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--LiveVox Inc., the leading provider of cloud contact center solutions for enterprise operations, announced today that John McNamara, Chief Marketing Officer of LiveVox, will moderate a compliance panel with legal, technology, and operations experts at the 2013 Debt Connection Symposium (DCS) in Las Vegas on September 12, 2013. Set in a debate-style format, industry leaders will discuss and defend the latest strategies and tactics to balance consumer experience, cost, customer SLA’s and compliance.
“For enterprise operations, achieving new levels of agent productivity are too often crippled by costly and stagnant hardware architecture”
On the panel, McNamara says, “Unlike most speaking events, attendees will not only benefit from hearing exactly why and how certain sectors of the industry are reacting to regulatory changes, but more importantly, whether or not these choices are viewed by their peers as a true best practice. Contact centers not yet visited by the CFPB are still working overtime to determine how to build best-in-class compliance management systems. Those that have been examined are calibrating operations with CFPB stated expectations. This panel will give businesses affected great insight into how to evolve responsibly and still do right by their shareholders in terms of profits and customer SLA’s.”
Compliance costs are and will continue to rise, especially for leaders of large, multi-site operations where adapting to change can be extremely difficult. To counter the increasing costs of improving compliance management systems, agent productivity levels in turn must improve. LiveVox’s bursting and global skills based routing addresses both challenges. Bursting enables agents to spend more time productively talking with consumers while dynamic skills-based routing helps optimize global resource pools and achieve a better, more seamless customer experience.
“For enterprise operations, achieving new levels of agent productivity are too often crippled by costly and stagnant hardware architecture”, adds McNamara. “Prime examples include capacity limitations that stiffen pacing levels and location silos that handicap routing workflows”
Most hardware technologies, even those catering to enterprise operations, offer an average of 3 lines per agent and are further limited by physical location. These capacity restraints can significantly hinder account penetration levels and critical agent Talk/Wrap/Ready rates. In one study, LiveVox analysts found that optimum agent productivity levels require a minimum of 7 lines/per agent. To read more click here.
For multi-site operations that utilize global agent resources, the true benefits of leveraging cost-effective resource pools are dampened by common issues like delayed call routings and inconsistent data transfers as a result of hardware-based technology limitations. LiveVox’s Cloud platform removes these obstacles through its global ACD and enables contact centers to quickly configure virtual agent queues with sub-second warm transfers.
In establishing virtual queues businesses can improve their overall agent productivity levels by leveraging burstable global skills-based routing workflows to implement cost-efficient, compliance focused campaigns, such as off-shore to on-shore contact strategies for cell phone dialing.

LiveVox is able to provide these capabilities as part of a comprehensive Compliance Suite for its enterprise level clients.
With experts spanning operations, technology, and legal, the panel will discuss and debate approaches to pressing contact center issues and other hot topics, including dial frequencies, leaving messages, call recordings, system constraints, monitoring, fees and more.
