With Millennials making up a large consumer demographic, businesses need to review how to approach these customers. Millennials will take their business to a competitor if a company does not meet their expectations and will stop doing business with a brand even over a single bad experience with customer service.
They do not want to wait on hold even if they have an issue, question, or complaint. Millennials are more comfortable doing things on their own and are very comfortable with non-verbal communications.
The infographic below shows 9 facts about your Millennial customers to offer a truly millennial-friendly customer service.

By Ion Mae of VoipReview.org With the customer experience quickly overtaking price and products as a key brand differentiator, companies are paying closer attention to their customer service programs, and in particular both the level and quality of service delivered by their contact centers. To maintain a high standard of service, many companies use a number of performance metrics such as calls offered, calls handled, duration, and average queue length. And although these details are helpful, they often offer limited customer insight. The ability to understand customer preferences (as well as why, when, and how they are interacting with a brand) is also crucial to truly drive success in the contact center. And one of the best ways to achieve this is by leveraging contact center analytics. In this article, Michael DeFrances, Technical Project Manager at Mediu, a leading software and professional services company for the contact center industry and an Advanced Tier Genesys partner, shares what contact centers need today in order to grow. DeFrances also discusses with VoIPReview.org how Mediu is helping contact centers achieve peak performance with their range of solutions. Building Efficiency in Contact Centers Customer service has always been vital to the success of any organization, but with […]
Mediu was proud to be part of Genesys’ first ever CX17 Conference in Indianapolis on May 22 – May 25. This premier customer experience conference is the first conference since Genesys’ acquisition of Interactive Intelligence. It brought great minds, visionary leaders, satisfied customers and trusted partners together around technology. We had the honor of presenting MERF to this year’s conference attendees. The four-day conference introduced industry trends and best practices through keynote speakers, networking opportunities, breakout sessions, and an education day. If you were unable to attend, we’ve compiled a list of seven key messages that were presented at the conference: #1: Genesys renamed its product suite. Genesys’ Customer Experience Platform Portfolio renamed its three products PureCloud, PureConnect and PureEngage.

Mediu’s CEO Mike Berichon and CTO Mark Basinger were recently interviewed on Telecom Reseller’s podcast. The podcast aired on June 10, 2017, and introduced Mediu’s new product called MERF, Mediu Extensible Routing Framework. During the nine-minute conversation facilitated by Doug Green, Telecom Reseller’s publisher, Mike and Mark discussed the services that Mediu offers to its customers, and explained how Mediu’s years of experience developing routing solutions resulted in MERF. MERF supports any Genesys routing call flow, including auto-attendant menus and prompts, skill-based routing, web service integration, and many other features. The interview highlighted the benefits MERF offers a company’s different departments, such as IT and operations, and how it can reduce implementation time by as much as 70 percent. Mark explained that although MERF was introduced and showcased at the Genesys CX17 Conference on May 22 – 25 in Indianapolis, Indiana, it has been in production with several of Mediu’s clients over the last 18 months. The reactions from clients have been positive, stating that MERF allows their businesses to have control so their IT departments can focus on more complex systems. The interview concluded with MERF’s availability and how listeners can get more information about Mediu and MERF. If […]
Mediu’s CEO, Mike Berichon, was recently showcased in After 5, an advertising feature in the April 28 edition of Columbus Business First. The article, entitled, “The ‘Bear’ Behind Project Blues,” describes a personal story of how Mike’s passion for Blues music and his later-in-life interest in learning guitar resulted in the formation of his own band and a not-for-profit agency benefitting those with cancer. After losing his sister Shelly to breast cancer just three months after her diagnosis, the cause is a personal one for Mike. Nicknamed ‘Bear’ by his friends, Mike founded Project Blues in 2011, a philanthropic organization that coordinates Blues music concerts and events to raise awareness and funds for people impacted by cancer. Proceeds from the concerts benefit the Columbus Cancer Clinic and LifeCare Alliance. Mike and two of his Mediu employees, Boris Livchits on bass and Mark Basinger on organ and keys, formed a band called Drivin’ Home. It began as a few guys playing music for fun after work and they are now opening for this year’s Project Blues headliner, Ronnie Earl & the Broadcasters. Project Blues has been featured in other blog articles on our website as well as in Columbus Business First when Mediu […]

With workforce management (WFM) tools, you can plan for the unplanned, resulting in optimized contact center performance and happy customers.
