A New Customer Service Paradigm: Customers Are Now Demanding Self-Service Options and Why You Must Adapt

Join a complimentary webinar discussing how intelligent virtual assistants can profitably serve, retain, and grow mobile and social customers

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 

WHEN:

Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. EST

LOCATION:

Online, with free registration

SPEAKERS:

Nancy Jamison, Principal Analyst, and Brendan Read, Industry Analyst for Frost & Sullivan's Information & Communications Technology practice and Richard Simons, CEO Creative Virtual USA

Customer service demands, increased competition for customers, and the need to strengthen profit margins, coupled with the advent of the mobile and social channels, are forcing companies to step up their customer care game. This Webinar will look at how these trends are generating the need for powerful automated voice and text chat intelligent virtual assistants.

Why You Should Attend:

  • Learn about the strengths, weaknesses, and trends with automated and live agent voice and text channels
  • Hear how mobile and social are changing customers' service expectations
  • Discover how virtual assistants can improve the customer experience while boosting bottom-line results
  • Participate in the interactive Q&A session

This Webinar will benefit customer contact, marketing, and billing organizations across a wide range of industries that are faced with improving results and reducing costs. It will also be of value to resellers who are looking for a powerful and attractive new product/service offering.

"Customers now expect superior, consistent customer service from companies 24/7, but their experiences have been hobbled by complex self-service menus and by long hold times when trying to reach customer service representatives," observes Frost & Sullivan Information & Communications Technology Principal Analyst Nancy Jamison.  "The rise in the use of mobile and social as customer contact channels driving the need to improve self-service and intelligent virtual assistants is a way of accomplishing this." 

"Self-service customer experience strategies must be designed consistently across multiple channels no matter where customers choose to engage," says Creative Virtual USA CEO Richard Simons. "Organizations that leverage intelligent virtual agents deliver stronger customer service and build brand loyalty."

Amazon and Google have built software-defined data centers (SDDCs) that deliver massively scalable services with great efficiency. Yet, building SDDCs has proven to be a near impossibility for companies without hyper-scale resources.

Container technology is sending shock waves through the world of cloud computing. Heralded as the 'next big thing,' containers provide software owners a consistent way to package their software and dependencies while infrastructure operators benefit from a standard way to deploy and run them. Containers present new challenges for tracking usage due to their dynamic nature. They can also be deployed to bare metal, virtual machines and various cloud platforms. How do software owners track the usag...

There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
