By Colin Taylor As I look at the new and shiny year ahead, I wonder what delights and innovations and opportunities may lie ahead for Contact Center operations.  I think in many ways we will finally shake the post-pandemic hangover; we just need to take two aspirin and realize that what we have been dealing with for the past two years was really a realignment.
