Gaining Momentum: nGUVU Adds Data Scientist to R&D Team

 MONTREAL, QC, July 15, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- nGUVU, a leading innovator in gamification and machine learning software solutions for contact centers, has announced the addition of a new data scientist to their Montreal-based development team.

With a background that includes advanced skills in mathematical and statistical modeling, data science, machine learning, and scientific computing, as well as physics and genetics, nGUVU's new data scientist joins at a crucial time, adding to resources currently focused on the advancement of their flagship solution, nGAGEMENT.

Machine learning plays a vital role in solving the challenges specific to the contact center industry, namely, optimizing agent performance, increasing operational efficiency, and ensuring both employee engagement and customer satisfaction.

According to recent labor statistics, employee turnover is at an all-time high in today's typical contact center, and the implications across the industry are significant. In fact studies have shown that a typical U.S. based 500 person contact center loses approximately $1.2 million every year from employee attrition. 

"Our nGAGEMENT solution directly addresses the burning issue of employee engagement and attrition, and creates a work environment for contact center agents that is enjoyable and immersive while increasing productivity," says Pascal Leclerc, Vice-President of Product Strategy at nGUVU and an industry expert with over 15 years of contact center operations experience.

"With this additional data scientist resource, nGUVU is poised to solve even the deepest, most nebulous challenges to contact center operational efficiency by leveraging existing data and applying it to top-line performance metrics like employee engagement and customer satisfaction, all while providing for the ongoing improvement of agent knowledge and skills," adds Jacou Sarrazin, Chief Technology Officer at nGUVU.
