In a rapidly changing business landscape of a world dealing with a pandemic, resources are more heavily scrutinized, efficiency becomes paramount and protecting your customers is increasingly important. Contact centers continue to struggle with high call volumes and long wait times, while working towards streamlining working conditions for remote agents. Meanwhile fraudsters are actively gathering data and waiting for the right opportunity to attack your business. A combination of these factors poses a challenge to contact centers. How do you protect your business and consumers while simultaneously reinventing processes to best tackle the pandemic conditions? Secure authentication is the path forward. Using risk analysis as part of your authentication strategy can lead to immense benefits for consumers by avoiding painful enrollment processes and removing interminable ID&V interrogation. For contact centers, secure authentication can play a crucial role in protecting accounts in tandem with fraud detection systems in a cross-channel environment. Finally, streamlined authentication also opens up opportunities for remote agent authentication for improved access.
