12 Resources to Help you Maximize your ice Contact Center Investment

by Shaundalee Carvalho | Mar 23, 2021, 10:19 AM

It has now been a year since the COVID-19 pandemic began and almost a year since ComputerTalk began our Lunch and Learn/Slice of ice webinar series. The series began with a single webinar devoted to supporting contact centers through the new changes arising from the pandemic and the transition to remote work. However, that one webinar quickly evolved into a monthly series covering a wide range of topics from how-to and support information to ways to enhance your ice Contact Center.

We have enjoyed being able to support our customers in this way and we appreciate all the feedback and participation from those who have joined us over the last year. We’re taking a little spring break this month, but we will be back in April with a new session for you, so keep an eye out for your invite!

In the meantime, we have plenty of recordings and recaps of previous sessions to check out! This spring break is a great opportunity to catch up on any sessions you’ve missed and refresh your memory on some of your favorites from the last year.
