Liveops Invests in Its Virtual, Flexible Agent Workforce by Advancing Digital Transformation Efforts
Company accelerates investment in new technology adoption to aid in increased throughput and improved agent retention
Liveops Inc., the leading provider of skilled virtual workforces for customer service and sales, announced it is rolling out its aggressive strategy to improve the agent experience for its network of independent contractor agents via digital transformation tools and tactics. In today’s shifting economy many experienced, skilled professionals require safe, at-home work options that are both flexible and have high earning potential. Liveops is committed to a highly motivated independent contractor agent community who are driven to deliver the best possible level of service with every call, and will optimize the agent’s workflow at every turn to show its commitment.
Most recently, the company launched an applicant tracking system, powered by Fountain, a leading applicant tracking system designed for high-volume recruiting. Liveops needed a platform that could manage high-volumes of applicants, sometimes over 1,000 per day, while delivering a seamless applicant experience. The company gathered feedback from agents about their journey and the Fountain system was chosen based on its ability to meet the organization’s needs. The platform is more mobile friendly, with an intuitive interface that encompasses nearly all onboarding tasks within the workflow.

“We’re excited to partner with Liveops to deliver a seamless experience to applicants,” said Sean Behr, CEO of Fountain. “The deep partnership during our integration was a shining example of how teams can partner to build a customized experience resulting in higher throughput and deeper analytics.”
Throughout the year Liveops will continue to optimize the digital, yet community-driven agent experience, transforming several agent-facing platforms including a new solution for hosting the agent community, a collaborative space for agents to connect and share best practices. Liveops will also introduce a new learning management platform to support their award-winning distance learning and launch a new service support system.
