Customer service 2020—Are you ready?


Web

Everywhere you look, digital transformation initiatives are taking hold across the enterprise. Customer service is no exception. Today, new digital technology options mean customers expect choice, flexibility, speed, transparency, and personalization from the companies they do business with—expectations that are only increasing. 

While these digital developments don’t necessarily require completely replacing customer service solutions that work, it may be a good time to reconsider your options since customer service is evolving from single-channel or nonintegrated multichannel into a dynamic platform for customer experience delivery. 

The upshot? Channels don’t matter. The focus is customer service effectiveness instead of efficiency. 

 

But, what’s driving this customer service evolution? And, is your business ready? 

ThinkJar’s Esteban Kolsky recently spoke to customer service practitioners as part of his annual research project about the state of customer service. Read this four-part blog series to highlight trends and how you can apply valuable insights to fuel your customer service transformation.
