How Digital Technologies are Redefining Customer Services

Digital technologies have transformed consumer habits by allowing them to get what they want almost at the moment they need it. Research shows, initially customers often rate an organization based on its digital customer experience. Moreover, digital transformation not only offers an organization an opportunity to understand its customers but also the ways of engaging with them and delivering on their expectations.

Traditionally, companies were deploying their communication channels in silos, which is why agents were lacking the knowledge of customer’s prior digital interactions and were failing to understand the customer’s prior actions on their website before they address the customer’s queries. This resulted in the customer’s frustration as they have to keep repeating the information that is already communicated. This issue could be well-addressed by multi-channel digital customer experience.

  • Chat and Co-Browsing

Co-browsing allows the customer support agent to collaborate with the customer’s browser in real-time.

  • Blend Digital and Physical World

When digital experience is blended with the physical world, it creates impactful results. Let’s take an example of QR codes, the company can attach a QR code to its products, develop an application to allow its customers to scan such code, which can further help customers to understand the maintenance schedule and other such aspects of the product.
