  • Getting the balance right between self- and agent-assistance in the call center to create superior customer service;

  • Adding voice to web pages;

  • How to provide a seamless and engaging customer experience across many channels, including speech, web, and mobile, by using a predictive multichannel platform;

  • How businesses are evolving their customer service strategies to keep pace with the preferences and expectations of today's mobile customers;

  • Adding location-based services that will deliver better customer experiences and higher automation success rates;
