Our Technical Expertise
X.B. Underwood’s areas of expertise are:
- Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tools
- Contact center support tools, such as workforce management and quality monitoring
- Workgroup collaboration systems, such as messaging and multimedia conferencing
- Metrics, measurement, and modeling systems to build business cases, assess alternatives, and measure results
X.B. Underwood does not have a business relationship with any solutions provider. However, we work with other independent organizations and consultants whose work complements ours.
We will add independent consultants to our projects to assemble for our clients the best team to meet their business requirements.
We assist end user clients with strategy development and process design, as well as assessment, selection, and implementation of technology. We assist vendors with product design, business planning, and strategic market analysis. Our work with both end users and solution providers helps us stay current with real practices in business environments, yet understand where the technology and market are heading.
We partner with you on each engagement. We understand your business drivers and current environment, and apply proven methodologies to meet project objectives. We work together to address the needs of your principal stakeholders – your shareholders, managers, employees, and, most importantly, your customers. Through this partnership, we develop actionable recommendations while transferring knowledge to your team.
