We have covered the benefits of desktop analytics in previous blogs; it’s one of the best ways to analyze how people, processes and technology work together. But what is the best way to implement a desktop analytics solution?

If you have specific questions, contact us and we’ll talk you through the process. But if you’re not sure yet, two recent blogs provide a helpful primer on creating the right configuration to capture the necessary data.

  • Start small, think big: In other words, walk before you run. Use the collected data to address specific issues, then step back for a big-picture look at the contact center’s more complex processes.
  • Data first: Make sure the system is providing the right data, before using the system to translate that data into more detailed reports and dashboards.

  • Focus on people, processes and technology: This one is self-explanatory, as it reiterates the three pillars of desktop analytics.
