After just one poor experience, nearly 80% of customers opt to purchase from or work with a competitor. Since you never get a second chance to make a first impression, it’s critical to deliver a fast, seamless and positive experience customers demand — and deserve. Businesses committed to delivering remarkable service rely on exceptional customer service and inside sales teams. They provide an irreplicable human touch that customers now expect. To help these teams meet — and exceed — those expectations, many organizations have implemented intelligent process automation. Businesses focused on expanding their growth understand the critical importance of providing exceptional customer experiences. When positive, these experiences promote loyalty and drive brand advocacy.
