Consumers expect modern brands to offer effortless and personal customer journeys. Whether buying a new product on an online retail store or calling in for support on a high-tech electronic device, customers want to connect with their favorite companies over the digital channels they use in their personal day-to-day lives.
Adoption of digital channels continues to increase in US contact centers. 83% of contact centers in the US report using one or more channels in addition to their voice channel. But only 22% of contact centers offer seamless omnichannel conversations that allow customers to switch channels with ease and allow agents to work with all channels on a single unified agent desktop.
Companies are also failing to measure quality on the new channels they are adding into their channel mix. We reported in the 2019 Bright Pattern Omnichannel Customer Experience (CX) Benchmark Trend Report that only 13% of companies currently measure the quality of all customer interactions on all channels.
This means poor customer interactions are falling through the cracks and companies are failing to create and measure excellent omnichannel customer journeys.
