84% of UK Contact Centres are now operating remotely
Until recently, the majority of UK contact centres worked in a traditional, centralised model. For instance, fewer than 4% of agents were working remotely at home on a permanent basis. The challenges of continuing to run contact centres during the coronavirus crisis resulted in an enormous shift to home-based agents. According to ContactBabel’s latest research, 84% of respondents reported that they had moved from an office environment to being mainly home-based.
Above all, once the dust settles, the largest boost to the widespread acceptance of cloud-based solutions will be the successful rapid deployment of remote working contact centre agents as a reaction to the crisis. Likewise, so many operations moved within days to a cloud based environment and still managed to support customers as effectively as possible. Considering the circumstances, this is proof of cloud’s disaster recovery and business continuity advantages.
