To remain relevant in today’s market, every business needs to begin thinking in the realm of unified customer experiences, irrespective of device and channel. Customers believe that time is money, and they expect companies to share that belief.

A staggering 62% of customers will consider switching to a competitor after only 1-2 bad experiences with a brand. And more than 90% of customers will share details about bad experiences with friends, family and social networks. And don’t forget that 25% of customers say they would pay more for a better customer experience, regardless of product type.

Brands need to be able to deliver resolutions, as quickly as possible, 24x7x365. While this would have been a complex and expensive undertaking a few years ago, new technologies like AI and chatbots are allowing brands to offer always-on self-service, at scale, cheaper than ever before.

Is your brand providing fast, effortless, accurate resolutions on the very first contact, regardless of channel?

Chatbots and virtual agents are being implemented across multiple industries already, helping customers accomplish a wide range of tasks – from ordering pizza and checking luggage at the airport to booking a hotel room or a doctor’s appointment. And the customer service industry is no exception.
