Contact center platforms need to overcome the usual inertia of CX performance levels and take a different approach to evaluating and analyzing CX.
SharpenCX’s cloud-native contact center solution supplies this need. It empowers agents with analytics on custom-created metrics that they can control to drive better customer experiences This includes ACR, which measures whether a customer’s issue was handled correctly and whether the agent anticipated future issues. SharpenCX’s customizable platform and insights help agents understand where to focus and improve for highly impactful conversations.
“Empowered agents make happy agents. Happy agents make happy customers.”
For SharpenCX to focus on what it does best–creating engaging customer and agent experiences, anywhere, anytime– it needed more than a network provider. It needed a strategic partner who could consistently offer:

“My opinion about Bandwidth in the time that I worked with them is that I don’t think about them. That’s a good thing. I don’t think about it because it just works.”

“The partnership between Sharpen and Bandwidth, it’s very frictionless. So it is very easy to get on a call and always feel like we get extremely valuable information. We hang up the phone and I’m thinking we just saved ourselves two weeks of research that we might not even know if we got to the right spot.”
