SAN RAMON, CA, February 11, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Ventana Research has launched its newest benchmark research, Next-Generation Customer Engagement. The research will examine shift in customer engagement channel preferences and assess the technology utilized in these new channels.
The primary channel for customer engagement for the time being remains telephone calls with customer service agents in contact centers but a paradigm shift has begun to take place. Ventana Research's recent research into customer experience maturity shows customer expectations have extended beyond traditional channels, opening up to include company-wide contact through many different communication channels, including website inquiries, social channels, text messages, instant messages and video applications.
This benchmark research will examine current adoption of next generation customer engagement models and the technologies to support them. It will investigate the opportunities and issues that accompany these new forms of engagement and the impact on customers' experiences and expectations. The research will also determine what steps companies can take to ensure the best possible customer loyalty and revenue outcomes.
"Companies are beginning to recognize the shift in customer priorities. They are looking for new approaches to improve customer interactions and retention instead of focusing primarily on acquiring new customers," said Richard Snow, VP & Research Director at Ventana Research. "The aim of this benchmark research is to uncover valuable key insights and best practices to help companies deliver excellent customer experience and improve key customer-related metrics."
