Description

This study’s objective was to review current and future adoption of customer contact strategies, enabling technologies, and services in the retail and consumer vertical. About 55% of North American and European contact centers are mostly integrated, with full integration expected to reach 55% in 2016. About 46% of customer interactions are fully automated. Email (27%) is preferred over LiveAgent voice (20%), and Web self-service trails at 11%. Mobile apps and social media will increase, while IVR and video will remain virtually unchanged. Personalized marketing is expected to grow by 18% by 2016. The systems/applications that show the most growth are Web collaboration tools and Web interaction analytics.
