C3 2018 Speaker Spotlight: Q&A with Ankur Shah, LendingClub
Calabrio Customer Connect (C3) is just around the corner! Check out the latest installment of our 2018 Speaker Spotlight series.
Ankur Shah, senior manager of operations analytics at LendingClub, will be sharing how to use Calabrio WFM to drive efficiencies in back office environments during C3 2018, September 10-13 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, TN.
Name: Ankur Shah
Title: Senior Manager, Operations Analytics
Experience: 3 years with LendingClub, 13 years in analytics
Q: What are you most looking forward to for C3 2018 and why?
Ankur: I’m looking forward to hearing about the new features in Data Explorer and predictive CSAT scores! I also want to meet other customers that have already transitioned to Calabrio Cloud and how they are using Data Explorer to build custom dashboards and derive insights.
Q: What are you passionate about?
Ankur: We use so many disparate systems to run our business that it can seem daunting to understand the inter-relationships between them. That’s where I come in. My team combines data across our contact center, workforce management and proprietary databases to build unified dashboards that our business partners can use to understand performance, derive insights and make informed decisions. I’m also passionate about building scalable analytics solutions that last the test of time, and finding answers to questions before the business has thought to ask them.
Q: Why should people attend your session, To Boldly Go: Using Calabrio to Drive Efficiencies in the Back Office? What will they learn?
Ankur: The principles of workforce management in a contact center can be extended to other domains, including non-interactive customer facing roles–think document processing, underwriting or claims processing. At LendingClub, we have iterated through several approaches to arrive at a solution that works for our credit review team. We got here by conducting time study tests, modularizing workload and using Calabrio to treat those modules as virtual queues.
We would love to share our journey and ideas with you–hopefully you can find parallels in your own business and we can get new ideas from your experiences!
Q: The theme of this year’s conference is Amplify the Connection. What’s one song you’d love to hear amplified at the C3 customer appreciation party?
Ankur: Maroon 5 “Girls Like You.”
