Activating smart working in a company in just one working day — is it technically possible, or it is just another marketing trick?
In the recent weeks and months, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, many companies around the world have been struggling to provide their employees with tools that can enable them to work from home while maintaining the same level of productivity and availability.
This is especially true for those companies who never had the practice of remote working in place before the outbreak. Just a few months ago, smart working was simply “nice to have”, and was used only by a small percentage of companies.

The age of first pregnancy has been on the rise for many years. Today, according to Eurostat, European women give birth to their first child at the age of 30.7, four years older than 30 years ago.

How to boost the performance of your customer service department and make your customers happy
Any company interested in growing is striving to win new customers and retain their existing ones. Your customers, in fact, have the same need. Let’s see how you can help them.

In this article we will see in detail some typical challenges that call agents face each day, that prevent the company from achieving its business goals, and how you can help them overcome these problems.
✔ Flexibility in managing agent opt-in/ opt-out option
In a critical situation, when there is a high load of incoming calls, call agents have no easy way of adding themselves to a call queue. They either have to depend on a system administrator to do it for them or to remember complicated procedures to do it via a dedicated Feature Code.
