The advent of CCaaS has enabled companies to leverage their unmatched potential for integrating all interactions and countless other functionalities into a centralized platform to take CX delivery to new heights.
However, CCaaS leverages a considerable amount of customer data and stores it along with particular information about interactions and more for reporting purposes.
Hence, assuring the security and integrity of this information is a responsibility that falls squarely on the organization. To this end, many standards and regulations have been imposed to ensure contact center compliance that must be adhered to by organizations seeking to avoid penalties, loss of consumer trust, and damage to the company’s reputation.
In this article, let’s explore contact center compliance and how automated CCaaS management solutions allow businesses to achieve this objective.
Why is contact center compliance crucial in the modern era?
At present, the importance of contact center compliance cannot be understated, with CX delivery and all customer interactions directly tied to the level of customer satisfaction depending on the effectiveness of this operation.
Any misaligned configurations or lack of visibility has the potential to make a significant impact on the customer’s perception of the business or brand. Moreover, concerns about data protection and privacy are at an all-time high, meaning customers expect air-tight protection for their personal data.
Here are some common compliance pitfalls that CCaaS operations face:
- Unauthorized changes that create security vulnerabilities
CCaaS comprises many interconnected tools and operations. Therefore, sudden or uninformed changes to one aspect of the system can create vulnerabilities in other parts that sometimes expose the information stored within to security risks such as data theft. Regular compliance audits may be required to identify and address these vulnerabilities.
- Limited visibility into changes made to configurations
One of the primary issues that stem from a lack of visibility into CX environments is the inability to track changes made to configurations. This is especially problematic when misaligned changes are made that restrict the productivity of the contact center. Tracking changes may require continuous auditing and the maintenance of a comprehensive log of change records.
- Undue pressure constraining high-value resources
The efficiency of CCaaS operations is compromised due to unoptimized workflows or misaligned configurations. For example, this can happen when too many low-level interactions get routed to the most experienced agents, overburdening them and leaving little time available for them to handle higher-value and more complex interactions. This may require continuous auditing to address.
How automated CCaaS configuration and management enable contact center compliance?
Automated CCaaS configuration and management solutions are a proven way to streamline, synchronize, and synergize CX environments (even those relying on multi-vendor solutions) for optimal performance and CX delivery.
These solutions also play a major role in allowing your organization to optimize compliance within your cloud contact centers through the following capabilities:
Automated compliance audits: Seamlessly identify gaps leading to security vulnerabilities and address misaligned workflows and CCaaS configurations to optimize the CX environment. Effectively reduce the burden of manual auditing and eliminate human error for better compliance.
Real-time notifications: Track all configuration changes in real-time with continuous automated auditing of your CX environment and stay up-to-date and highly responsive with notifications detailing configuration changes—enabling swifter action in securing your CCaaS ecosystem.
Detailed real-time reporting: Receive and send comprehensive and informative reports compiled in real-time with pertinent information that can be shared with regulatory teams and used for gathering insights for decision-making to improve compliance in your CCaaS operation.
Regulate change to configurations: Effectively manage change requests to CCaaS configurations by setting automatically enforced change management rules, revealing what configurations are requested and by whom. This enhances visibility and helps meet higher compliance standards.
Automated rollback: Restore your CCaaS platform to a previous state to reverse erroneous changes or misaligned configurations to rapidly address compliance concerns that may arise due to unauthorized changes going through. Automated rollback helps you restore compliance swiftly.
