HOW TO BUILD A MODERN DIGITAL CUSTOMER SERVICE STRATEGY: 10 Real-World Insights for B2C Leaders

RingCentral | 6/19/2019 1:48:44 PM

Today, when customers need to interact with brands, they want to use the same tools they enjoy for personal communication. As customers rely less on voice communication and more on messaging, social applications, and other mobile apps, brands have quickly realized they need to meet customers on their terms if they expect to build strong brand loyalty. Because if brands aren’t using those tools, customers simply move on to those that are.

That’s why it’s so critical for brands to build new digital avenues to communicate with their customers. Companies that deliver rich, personalized, and consistent customer experiences across all channels, particularly digital ones, have the inside track to grow market share and revenue.

The challenge of building a superior customer care strategy begins by empowering agents with the tools and solutions required to solve customer issues quickly and effectively. To do so, they need technology that builds complete customer profiles and gives agents immediate access to the company experts who can solve problems quickly. The goal of any successful organization today is to go beyond voice and chat technology to deliver an “omni-digital” customer engagement strategy that helps them reach customers on all the digital communications channels they love today, as well as those they’ll use in the future.

The following guide will help you understand the most common challenges of building an effective digital customer engagement strategy, as well as tips to help overcome them.

Artificial Intelligence in Workforce Management Systems

NICE | 4/15/2019 3:02:21 PM

Determining optimal schedules and efficiency gains when using multi-skilled employees is highly dependent on a significant challenge in today’s omnichannel work centres: the ability to accurately estimate when and to what extent an employee needs to be shared across multiple work streams.

Accurate schedule generation is a challenge given today’s creative scheduling concepts, and it’s further complicated by the need to accurately split an employee’s productive time across two or more work queues.

Without a reliable understanding of the time an employee will contribute to each work area, the use of multi-skilled employees can lead to poor decisions… and poor customer service.

The ROI of Digital Customer Engagement: 8 examples of companies winning big with virtual assistants and live chat

Nuance | 10/2/2018 2:58:57 PM

Digital engagement channels, whether through self-service options like a virtual assistant or through the one-on-one personal attention of live chat, give customers the personalized, immediate assistance they want.

On their own, they deliver fast, contextual assistance while cutting the cost-to-serve and taking strain off the contact center. But, the best experiences—the most satisfying, personalized and efficient ones—are delivered through a combination of self-service and human-assistance.

Download this guide to learn why forward-thinking organizations are increasingly opting for an integrated strategy, where live chat and virtual assistants work together seamlessly, and the results they’re achieving:

• A global airline achieved an 80% first contact resolution rate
• A major cruise line realized a $16M increase in revenue
• A global shipping and delivery company handled 50% of inquiries without human intervention

If you’re considering adopting live chat or a virtual assistant, read these case studies to see the benefits you could reap—and why the technologies work better together.
