In 2020, spurred on by lockdown, public sector IT leaders found themselves at the forefront of a digital communications revolution. The race to keep staff and the local community connected saw many abandon their outdated on-premises systems in favour of cloud communications.
Once the immediate need to securely enable a remote contact centre was addressed, innovative organisations, like Liverpool City Council, quickly realised that cloud communications provide far-reaching opportunities to reimagine how they serve the public.
Join Liverpool City Council’s Assistant Director ICT—Alison Hughes and 8×8’s Market Intelligence Director—Chris Marron as we discuss service delivery best-practice beyond the cloud contact centre and why the public sector is leading the way.
- The challenges and opportunities of enabling a cloud contact centre
