Celebrating an Old-fashioned Fourth of July

by Phone.com

We’d like to wish all of our US-based customers a very happy Fourth of July! We hope you’re enjoying the day outdoors with family and friends.

Phone.com’s west coast office is situated in Poway, California, a small, friendly city of around 50,000 people. Powegians pride themselves on preserving their local history, and nowhere is that more vividly evident than at our annual Old-fashioned Fourth of July celebration.

The July 4th celebration is held at Old Poway Park, home to the Poway-Midland Railroad, a full-size, narrow-gauge railway with a restored steam train that carries passengers around the perimeter of the park in antique railway cars.

Volunteers throughout the park are dressed on July 4th in period costume—from the refined ladies spinning cotton candy to the rugged outlaws holding up the train, smoking guns and all. With live music and square dancing, old-fashioned field games for the kids, and summer treats like watermelon, hot dogs and corn on the cob, there is always something to do.

Leveraging Your Team’s Unique Strengths for Optimal Multichannel Support

by Phone.com

In our contact center, all of our agents are identical. They all type fast and have the ability to handle eight chats at once — all while building deep emotional connections with each and every customer they speak to. By the way, our team members can all monitor social media in their sleep and every tweet results in at least ten retweets.

Detect a hint of sarcasm there? I hope you did, because I laid it on pretty thick. The fact of the matter is that each contact center agent has strengths and qualities that make them unique. I want to take a few moments to show how you can use this to your advantage in offering multichannel support.
