Executives representing Microsoft Teams, Cisco Collaboration, Amazon Web Services, Zoom, RingCentral and Google Cloud presented keynotes at this week’s Enterprise Connect. Although the topics were diverse, some common themes emerged. Several speakers discussed the importance of the contact center to their companies’ business models. It left the audience wondering when the other firms will create tools to compete for contact center business.

Enterprise-Connect-logo-300x157.jpgTo say that the pandemic influenced many products on display at the conference would be an understatement. The speakers addressed that in the keynotes, discussing that the future of work is a hybrid model. Moreover, the solutions their companies now offer are geared to that reality. This could be a virtual receptionist, a seamless Webex experience in an electric vehicle, or a highlight reel employees can watch of a missed meeting.

However, one speaker summed up this era best by staying true to basic business principals.

“We really have to listen to customers to make sure we’re bridging that gap between what’s there now and what’s coming in the future,” he said.
