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."
