    The economic outlook will test organisations like never before. With consumer confidence and spending devastated and constraints on our way of life likely to continue for a considerable period, the challenges are clear. Against this gloomy economic backdrop, many organisations are fighting for survival and need to adapt rapidly. To meet the challenge organisations need to look differently at their operating model to build in greater flexibility and resilience whilst optimising costs without creating new risks or having a detrimental impact on the customer experience. Cost-cutting shouldn’t mean service compromise.

    What the challenges have brought into sharp focus is that legacy operating models have become inadequate. Too often customers are pushed into silos that fail them. Operations – whether inhouse or with partners – are often considered entirely separate from digital and the journeys that customers follow suffer from a fragmented and inadequate approach to how technology supports these.

    When this is combined with old-school views of what “can work” the reality is that organisations waste money and compound negative experiences for their customers and their people, which is not sustainable as the real impact of change approaches. How to deliver an optimised operating model for a very different future needs fresh thinking about how people work, how this is supported by platforms, and what the role of partners is to deliver this. With remote working widely deployed to deal with the Covid-19 lockdown and people turning away from commuting and fixed working hours, there is compelling evidence that the customer experience can be improved through using more engaged agents, often brand advocates, who choose their own schedules using technology platforms to provide customer support on an on-demand basis.

    This webinar addresses this critical subject and how people, platforms and partners play a key role in this. In the session you’ll hear Ember’s view of how to think differently and from Airbnb and npower, with their partner Arise, and others on how they are evolving their thinking and operating model to support customers.
