Customer Engagement Challenges
For interactions with customers to go well, organisations must deploy a wide range of systems to manage an ever-increasing array of engagement channels. But providing the information needed for all these customer-related activities isn’t simple. Our research into next-generation customer engagement shows that organisations support an average of eight customer engagement channels per inquiry. It also finds that organisations expect to see volumes increase on all channels, especially digital ones such as text-based messaging, chat, mobile and social apps.
Unfortunately, the systems that manage these channels are typically disparate and uncoordinated and may not use the same underlying technology. This makes it difficult for organisations to coordinate contact routing consistently and provide the best possible customer experience.
