Outstanding service pays off—for your customers, for your company. But it must be consistent across all channels. As  recent Aberdeen Group benchmark study points out, Best-in-Class companies enhancing online and contact center experiences—in unison—are seeing compelling results:

  • >75% first contact resolution rates as oppose to 60% for all others
  • >24% increase in productivity over the last year
  • A 4.3/5 level of customer satisfaction as opposed to a 3.8/5 level for all others
  • A 21% decrease in support costs over the last year, as compared to a 2% reduction for all others


With all of the talk about multi-channel service excellence, why aren’t more companies seeing it through to reality? Do Best-in-Class companies have an inside track? What are their success factors? The answers to these and other critical questions are revealed by Aberdeen Group Senior Analyst, Sumair Dutta in this informative webcast. He will disclose his latest survey results and findings around multi-channel service, including:

  • The evolution of service from “support” to” value creation” and “differentiation”
  • Usage trends in contact center, email, chat, and Web self-service interactions
  • Cost/competitive/customer pressures driving the urgent need to improve issue resolution across channels
  • Best-in-Class performance improvements around first contact resolution, customer satisfaction, cost reduction, efficiency, and profitability
  • Specific capabilities and technology enablers for achieving Best-in-Class performance—for agents, customers and organizations
  • ROI with respect to cost, productivity, customer satisfaction and adoption
  • Challenges to increased adoption…and how to move past them


Sumair will outline the specific steps, strategic actions and best practices for achieving high-impact results in your customer service organization.  

In support of his insights, Lori Angalich of Astute Solutions will share examples of companies that have aligned customer-centric strategies with multi-channel technologies to achieve extraordinary results.
