Nortel Networks announces its sponsorship of the Call Centre Expo 2003 Conference in a move to complement its drive, ‘Engage Your Customers for Improved Customer Experience’. The Call Centre Expo Conference will be held at Call Centre Expo 2003, 16-17 September 2003 at the Birmingham NEC, UK.

The Call Centre Expo 2003 Conference has been designed to give delegates a thorough understanding of the current key issues affecting the call & contact industry, and provide them with expert solutions and examples of best practice for improved customer contact. It will do this through high-level speaker presentations that will discuss key industry topics through the three conference track themes of People & Workplace; Business Process & Strategy; and Call & Contact Centre Technology.

“We recently announced the availability of our enhanced contact centre and self-service solutions, delivering Engaged Business Applications, as part of our ‘One Networks. A World of Choice” enterprise vision. The purpose behind Engaged Business Applications is to provide organisations with solutions that will enable them to improve customer service by anticipating customer needs. Our offering fits perfectly with the Call Centre Expo Conference positioning, and is the reason why we have chosen to sponsor it this year,” commented Chantal Smith, Contact Centre and Self Service Product Marketing Manager, Nortel Networks, EMEA.

Kate Watts, Call Centre Expo Conference Manager added, “We are delighted that Nortel Networks is sponsoring the conference this year. Nortel Networks’ key objective in providing organisations with leading call centre applications and network structure solutions complements the conference objective of supplying high-level information to delegates regarding customer contact best practice, in particular across the areas of Business Process & Strategy and Call & Contact Centre Technology.”

As part of the Call Centre Expo Conference, Chantal Smith will be giving a presentation on how to ‘Personalise the Customer Experience using Speech Technology”. This session will highlight how, through Nortel Networks’ Speech Technology solutions, companies can take full advantage of their traditional contact centre technology, while also implementing ‘user friendly’ and very cost effective speech recognition technology, and therefore increasing customer loyalty while reducing the operational costs. Chantal’s session will take place on Tuesday, 16 September from 14:00 – 15:00.

The 5th Call Centre Expo 2003 event and conference is the only event in the UK for all visitor and delegates call & contact centre needs, with more than 250 exhibitors, free educational features as well as the case-study led conference.
