Research released today suggests that there's a large, measurable ROI benefit to focusing on the customer. In a study conducted for Genesys, the omnichannel customer experience and call center vendor, Forrester Consulting reported an ROI exceeding 150 percent for customers using a Genesys engagement center solution.

In a Total Economic Impact study, Forrester reported:

  • a 50 percent reduction in customer abandonment at key points in the customer journey
  • Over $1 million in increased revenue through increased e-commerce and voice conversions
  • a 50 percent cost reduction to integrate new contact center agents
  • 12.5 percent improvement in agent handle time

The study looked at a payback period of around 13 months. According to Forrester, these findings reflect the evolution from traditional to omnichannel call centers.

The Forrester research puts figures to that assumption.
