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

NICE WFM 7.0: Understanding the Business Value and ROI
NICE
More than one-third of contact centers struggle with unpredictable customer traffic, resulting in overstaffing or understaffing.

Overstaffing is the simplest way to waste money, and understaffing leads directly to unhappy customers. To avoid either extreme, you need the right employees in the right place at the right time.

To tackle the issue of unpredictable customer traffic, forecasting tools must be able to handle incredibly complex demands and weigh and incorporate a range of source, input, historic and real-time data.

Forecasting with Artificial Intelligence

These forecasting capabilities are supported by ongoing developments in machine learning and artificial intelligence; developments that are enabling increasingly accurate projections.

The most robust contact centre forecasting tools have far-reaching impact. Advanced statistical methods can help users realise consistent customer service, improve retention and lower costs across the board through market-leading capabilities. Although the concept is simple, the execution is anything but.

Artificial Intelligence in Workforce Management Systems
NICE
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.
