FUSIONWRX Inc. Finishes Runner-Up for the 2021 “Best Customer Experience Execution” Pinnacle Award from the American Marketing Association

FUSIONWRX Inc | January 31, 2022

FUSIONWRX Inc, a Flottman Company is a full-service marketing agency based in Northern Kentucky, with a focus on digital marketing.  One of their specializations is building and optimizing Google Business Profiles, formerly named Google My Business listings, for regional and national clientele.  FUSIONWRX was recognized as a Pinnacle Award finalist for employing this tactic to improve online presence and sales entitled “Increasing Online Sales Success for the Jeff Wyler Automotive Family.”

Every year, the Cincinnati American Marketing Association honors hundreds of standout marketers through their Pinnacle Awards.  The AMA Cincinnati Pinnacle Awards are the highlight of the year for local marketers, and a chance to celebrate regional industry excellence. These awards highlight top performers across Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana in the fields of marketing, entrepreneurship, promotions and advertising.

In early December of 2021, the AMA named FUSIONWRX and Health Carousel as finalists for an award in the category of Best Customer Experience Execution.  The category of customer experience has been revered as highlighting the ultimate marketing tool. This category welcomes submissions from organizations that facilitate the pathways that anticipate wants, needs and problems, and addresses them in a way that makes a difference.

FUSIONWRX received their honor in recognition of their efforts with the Jeff Wyler Automotive Family.  In the midst of the pandemic, Jeff Wyler, like many other retailers, was forced to modify the way they do business, pivoting from a primarily face-to-face sales model to a predominantly online sales format.  At the onset of the pandemic, FUSIONWRX immediately acted to make Jeff Wyler’s online sales and purchase portals more visible, viable and accessible.  By verifying information, enhancing content and increasing imagery across all thirty Jeff Wyler dealership Google Business Profile listings, FUSIONWRX delivered exponentially more organic search traffic than previous years.  This increase in potential purchaser website visits led to more opportunity, more interest and ultimately more sales.

Congratulations to the FUSIONWRX Inc TEAM:
  • Robert (Bob) Niederhausen – Marketing Intern, Cincinnati State Technical and Community College
  • Chelsea Vaal – Senior Designer and Marketing Manager
  • Ed McMasters – Director of Marketing and Communications
  • Byron Slaby – Director of Business Development
At the 2021 Pinnacle Awards Ceremony, FUSIONWRX was honored as Runner-Up in the customer experience category and received a framed certificate and admiration of their peers.  According to Ed McMasters, Director of Marketing and Communication for FUSIONWRX, “…this award showcases the dedication our team shows our clients.  I am proud of our team and thankful for clients that believe in us and our abilities. It is because of our clients we are able to be successful, we win only when they win.”

Invoca Raises $83M Series F Financing, Increases Valuation to $1.1B, and Exceeds $100M Run-Rate Revenue

Invoca, Silver Lake Waterman | June 20, 2022

Invoca, the cloud leader in AI-powered conversation intelligence for revenue teams, today announced an $83 million Series F equity financing at a valuation of $1.1 billion. The new capital brings the company's total equity financing to $184 million. Silver Lake Waterman led the round with additional new investments from Hollyport Capital, Kingfisher Investment Advisors, and Fenwick & West, along with participation from existing investors Upfront Ventures, Accel, H.I.G. Capital, and Industry Ventures. This investment comes after a year of record growth, with Invoca surpassing $100M in run-rate revenue. Customer Conversations are the New "Make or Break" Moments for Brands Digital transformation has enabled consumers to complete simple transactions, such as checking a balance or making a basic purchase, through a brand's website or mobile app. But the most critical, high-stakes sales and service interactions are still handled through live conversations with contact center agents. These escalations to human channels represent "make or break" moments in the customer experience. But brands, who cannot seamlessly connect these digital journeys with high-impact conversations, are struggling to meet the heightened expectations of consumers. "When consumers look for value-added expertise in buying the right product or resolving an urgent service issue, they often escalate from digital self-service to speak with a human expert," said Gregg Johnson, CEO of Invoca. "At Invoca, we're using data, automation, and AI to integrate these digital journeys with conversations in the contact center, helping brands deliver a delightful experience, drive revenue, and strengthen customer relationships. We are thrilled to partner with new and existing investors as we innovate in the rapidly expanding market for conversational AI." Invoca is the Market Leader in AI-powered Conversation Intelligence Invoca serves the leading consumer brands in considered purchase industries like automotive, telecommunications, healthcare, financial services, and real estate. Customers include AutoNation, Banner Health, DIRECTV, ORKIN, Rogers Communications, Mayo Clinics, and University Hospitals. The company was also named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Conversation Intelligence: Sales And Marketing, Q4 2021 report, with the highest scores possible in the criteria of product and technology innovation road map, product ease of use, integrations, and market approach and performance. Invoca, which employs nearly 400 employees, was also named an Inc. 2022 Best Workplaces Award Winner for the fifth consecutive year. "We believe Invoca has an exceptional vision to help marketing and contact center teams transform the customer experience with AI-powered conversation intelligence," said Shawn O'Neill, Managing Director and Group Head, Silver Lake Waterman. "The company has built a market-leading product serving an impressive roster of blue-chip customers. And the Invoca team has been focused on achieving the operational rigor and disciplined execution that it takes to thrive in today's market and beyond. We look forward to partnering with Invoca in their next stage of growth." Investing in Technology Innovation and Expanded Go-to-Market Distribution With the Series F proceeds, Invoca will invest in several key areas. The company will accelerate product innovation through organic development and acquisitions, especially given the success of the DialogTech transaction in May 2021. Invoca recently introduced solutions for contact center teams, such as automated quality management, agent coaching and performance, call routing, and conversational IVR, and will increase technology investments in these areas. Simultaneously, the company will invest in expanding partnerships and distribution relationships in the contact center ecosystem. Invoca is a long-time partner of Five9 and integrates with several other leading contact center platforms. The company will also expand the channel partner program introduced earlier this year. Finally, Invoca will broaden its geographic coverage beyond the United States and Canada to support customers in Europe, Mexico, and South America.

Momentum and ITSMA Invest in Learning & Development with Enhanced Talent and Expanded Offerings

Momentum, the global growth consultancy | May 20, 2022

Momentum, the global growth consultancy and pioneer of account-based marketing (ABM), has enhanced its learning and development programs with two new hires and an increased focus on training programs. Guy Phillips, Global Director of Learning & Development (L&D) has re-joined Momentum based in the UK, and Paige Johnson, CPTM, Head of L&D, will be leading global service development efforts from the US. These strategic hires allow Momentum to centralize the delivery of its world-class training programs. Since acquiring ITSMA in July 2021, Momentum has made strategic investments to enhance the learning experiences that ITSMA delivers, including ABM Certification and Mentoring. To date, thousands of B2B marketers have participated in ITSMA's rigorous ABM training, and the number of ITSMA certified ABM leaders will surpass 500 this summer. Guy Phillips is a mentor and educator who is passionate about spreading the ABM philosophy through learning and development. In his new role at Momentum, he will lead the development of new offerings, deliver custom and public training, and oversee a growing team. He brings more than 30 years of experience to this role, having led Consulting at Momentum from 2017-2021 before spending a year developing enterprise ABM approaches at Autodesk. Guy's career began with online and offline media companies, he has optimized the customer journey at a number of large, well-known companies, and he has worked for a number of brand-name agencies, including Momentum, where he developed audience engagement strategies for B2B technology companies. Paige Johnson will bring rigor and orchestration to Momentum's training offerings. She will focus on overall learning content and pathways as well as product development, own the logistics of public training courses, and facilitate custom ABM and marketing courses within the US. Paige is an expert in L&D who has spent the majority of her career in the healthcare and technology industries, where she facilitated organizational change, led L&D programs, and coached teams and individuals with an intentional focus on alignment and achievement of organizational goals as well as performance through talent activation. "I'm thrilled to have Guy and Paige on board to help us take our learning and development programs to the next level. The demand for training, particularly in ABM, continues to skyrocket, as organizations see real business value in partnering marketing more closely with sales to drive strategic relationships that help build the brand over the long-term and deliver sustainable results." Rob Leavitt, Senior Vice President, Advisory & Training Momentum is seeing increased demand for ABM training and certification, as organizations recognize the business opportunities of treating accounts as a market of one. The company is also expanding its L&D capacity to help organizations retain talent, enable their marketing teams, build the skills necessary to drive business growth in a digital environment. The new offerings added to the training portfolio will focus on ways to embed ABM within the entire organization and will enable B2B marketers to more clearly define their career progression.

79% of CX Leaders Plan to Increase Investment in Contact Center AI and Automation

Talkdesk | July 12, 2022

Talkdesk®, Inc., a global cloud contact center leader for customer-obsessed companies, today released its newest Talkdesk Research™ report, The Future of AI 2022: Progressing AI Maturity in the Contact Center. The findings indicate that despite consensus (85%) around the value of artificial intelligence (AI), companies are hedging their approach by continuing to invest, but curbing deeper deployments in the near-term due to challenges around organizational alignment, security, and gaps in talent. As customer service expectations grow across every type of industry – from retail and consumer goods, to financial services and insurance, even healthcare – fast-moving organizations are gaining a competitive edge by using AI and automation to deliver better service and boost productivity. To reap the benefits and avoid being left behind, 79% of customer experience (CX) professionals say their company plans to increase investments in the year ahead. Fifty-two percent acknowledge that without AI and automation, customer satisfaction will decrease; 48% expect a decline in contact center team productivity. Yet, the use of AI and automation in contact centers has scaled back; for example, their use in self-service declined from 69% in 2021 to 60% today. Implementing new technology always represents an uncharted territory for companies and AI is no different. The former rush to embrace AI initiatives appears to have met with the reality of the challenges companies are facing, primarily around these key areas: Misalignment on AI business goals CX professionals report less confidence in their own understanding of AI. The percentage of those saying they feel moderately to extremely familiar with AI in the contact center dipped from 93% a year ago to 87%. Similarly, the number of respondents characterizing their organization’s application of AI technology as more advanced fell to 35%. Resistance to change within their organizations and lack of strategic vision were commonly cited hurdles. Security risks and IT challenges Eighty percent believe AI will improve identity and authentication security within the next two years. Nearly as many (75%) agree further that AI technology will allow customer data to be more secure than with a live agent. The belief that AI will improve security seems to contradict findings that security is a key barrier to AI deployment; however, half of the respondents attribute security concerns to the limitations of legacy contact center infrastructure. Lack of in-house AI expertise Another common obstacle to advanced AI implementation is the lack of AI professionals who can build, train, and maintain AI solutions. New technology, such as human-in-the-loop tools, can help democratize the use of AI in the contact center, making it easy for agents to train and maintain AI models without the need for specialized programming skills. According to the survey, 15% of companies are already taking advantage of these emerging tools. “As contact centers continue to evolve from cost to growth centers, falling short on AI maturity can negatively impact not only the most important contact center KPIs, such as customer satisfaction and productivity, but also broader business goals tied to revenue and lifetime customer value,” said Ben Rigby, Talkdesk senior vice president and global head of product and engineering, AI, automation, and workforce. “Working closely with a CX technology partner that has deep AI expertise can allow organizations to break through the barriers to deployment and achieve their AI ambitions.” Download the report, The Future of AI 2022: Progressing AI Maturity in the Contact Center, to view all the findings and get guidance on clearing common hurdles to implementation. Methodology The Talkdesk Research quantitative online survey was conducted in April 2022 across five global markets including the U.S., Canada, France, Germany, and the U.K. Surveys were complemented by 500 qualitative interviews with CX professionals employed by organizations with more than 100 full-time employees, spanning all major industries including healthcare, financial services and insurance, retail, and eCommerce. CX professionals include leadership and management for customer service, customer experience, CX operations, IT, and contact center agents. About Talkdesk Talkdesk® is a global cloud contact center leader for customer-obsessed companies. Our automation-first customer experience solutions optimize our customers’ most critical customer service processes. Our speed of innovation, vertical expertise, and global footprint reflect our commitment to ensuring that businesses can deliver better experiences across any industry and through any channel, resulting in higher customer satisfaction and accelerated business outcomes.
