A few weeks ago I posted an item that described the NOW Economy and why if your organization is not literally and figuratively not in the moment creating and sustaining competitive advantage and ultimately revenue growth and profitability could, to say it kindly, be problematic.

While it may be inevitable for certain transactions, it usually happens only when customers have exhausted attempts to solve the problem themselves, or via non-voice channels such as email, text, mobile app, social media or other digital channels.
