    CX Maturity Model

    The countries that made a success of COVID.

    This first episode introduces the 2021 CX Maturity report - APAC and its methodologies. We discover how businesses in Australia, Singapore and New Zealand fared in the face of the pandemic, and how that had changed relative to the year before. They also delve into how the size of a population affected the speed with which they reacted to the pandemic and delve into the key part that cloud-based services had to play during that time.

  • Episode 2:

    The pandemic and the future of working from home

    In episode 2, the panel discusses the different impacts COVID-19 has had on CX leaders and on CX laggards.

    Evolution of the Contact Centre

    Organisations move swiftly to a cloud-based service.

    In this episode, the panel discusses the different speeds at which businesses shifted their contact centre services, from an office to a cloud-based service. For example, how this has brought cost savings, but also unexpected challenges. They also share their thoughts on which locations are better for finding the right staff and why the size of a city matters when it comes to recruitment.

    AI. Good for business and good for people.

They delve into how AI is helping businesses be smarter, safer and more efficient with their vehicles, drivers and teams, and how the trend for AI chatbots helped drive the growth of AI across 2020. They also discuss the kind of data that AI provides and how the same AI used by two different companies can give very different results.

    Lessons from the Leaders

    Why CX will help businesses thrive.

    Dr Steve Nuttall speaks to Fifth Quadrant’s head of consulting, Stephanie Baurer, and Service Design Lead at Verizon Connect, Amelia Diggle, about what we can learn from CX leaders. They identify that businesses are looking for support on how they can improve CX across people, process and technology. They discuss how remote working has forced many leaders to take their eye off further strategic investment and ongoing improvement, but the leaders in the field are committed to investing in CX to maintain their edge in a highly competitive marketplace.
