In an age of tech-savvy customers and self-service channels, do companies still need to invest in contact centre and staff to provide support? The answer is, yes. Consumers have been trained to find the information they need on their own online or with their mobile device. But when they do pick up to the phone and reach out to customer service, they expect representatives to solve what are often complex questions. They expect human interactions. This enormous shift in which customer service representatives are perceived as a last resort puts increased pressure on contact centre associates who already have the odds stacked against them. The staff must be trained to quickly handle issues that frequently require access to a wide variety of information, but a lack of investment means many associates are often unprepared and lack the right resources to help customers. To change the outcome, customer service representatives need the right training and tools to not only understand the issue,

The pillars that are driving a superior customer service experience are changing. It used to be that just answering a customer’s question correctly and in a somewhat timely manner would cut it — but in 2016 that’s not so. Your customers carry more devices, and are more connected, informed and empowered. Today’s ultra-smart customer demands connected, seamless interactions, experiences where they can choose the service that best suits their needs and consistently offers personalized journeys across all devices. More often than not, the future of business success often depends on whether companies can deliver on those expectations.

As companies increasingly look to provide a better experience for customers, offering support across multiple channels is becoming more popular than ever. According to the Aberdeen Group, companies doubled the number of channels they use to interact with customers between 2012 and 2017. But there’s a difference between providing support on a few channels and delivering a truly integrated omnichannel solution. Using the Zendesk Benchmark, our crowd-sourced index of customer service interactions from 45,000 participating organizations across 140 countries, we examined why companies are going omnichannel and what sets the companies using Zendesk for omnichannel support apart from everyone else.

At HP, we know that in retail and hospitality environments, customers expect a fast and simple way to find information or to complete a transaction. The physical point-of-sale experience must rise to meet the demands of retailers through high aesthetic value and peak performance. From an elegant hotel to a small boutique, a quick-service restaurant to an outdoor garden center—all of these locations require a point-of-sale device that meets specific needs while appealing to any user. My team at HP sought to elevate this experience by redefining the customer experience through a versatile, reliable, and beautiful point-of-sale system. For the new HP ElitePOS, we gained insights from everywhere—designers, technologists, retailers, and consumers—to create a product that is beautifully simple. It started as a sketch on a napkin, and is now part of an iconic portfolio that dissolves barriers during point-of-sale customer interactions.

Customer service organizations are struggling to react to the pace of innovation and the explosion of channels and devices. To get ahead of these challenges, AD&D pros must deeply invest in automation — automated answers, automated conversations, automated agent guidance, and automated end-to-end processes. They must also invest in intelligence to ensure automated technologies evolve and learn from prior interactions over time. Automation and intelligence quell the headcount increases. They will free agents from working on low-value or repetitive tasks, as they will only have to address highly complex customer scenarios or exceptions to standard operations. This also enables them to focus on building connections with customers to garner their satisfaction and loyalty.
