Firstly, I would like to make a comment on companies using the word “challenge” instead of using “problem”. We face challenges - I agree, it sounds easy on the ear, however, I see a challenge in terms of making progress in a longer process. However, once we hit an obstacle in that process, problems that need solving appear. Let’s begin by looking at some problems that the contact centres have been tackling.

Of course, as the organiser, Microsoft will try to win the award again with more than 2,200 attendees, 140+ lectures and 130+ lecturers.
The utility and energy markets are at a unique point in their history. Market deregulation, new competitors and changed customer expectations mean that legacy companies need to fundamentally shift their point of view and start focusing on issues like customer experience and relationships and digital transformation to support their operations. However, this is not easy for entrenched players whose focus has traditionally been on supply efficiency.
"Bridging the Gap Between Data Science and Manufacturing" was the title of the Meetup held in Zagreb on 14th March 2019. The aim of this meetup was to bring together data scientists and manufacturing companies to discuss the opportunities, challenges and potential sources of data associated with data science for manufacturers.
Utilities industry is a perfect example of the spectrum in which the truly successful companies have understand the difference between what are customer centric processes, and what can be described as transactional processes - fail to understand this key difference, and your company will surely fail in the long term.
For a wide range of businesses, large and small, customer relationship management (CRM) systems are the most critical system when it comes to customer contact. However, in this day and age the biggest importance no longer resides within CRM – it is almost guaranteed that your Call Center will be the first contact you have with the customer, and you should be placing additional focus there.
While digital transformation may be a buzzword, it is an important buzzword. Consumer behaviour is changing rapidly, and companies are losing control over the sales process. It used to be that a customer came to a store, was greeted with a salesperson with a smile on their face to be convinced into the product they need.
