Service Evolved – Episode 1
Exceptional customer service can lead to raving reviews, loyal-for-life customers, satisfied employees, and even market leadership. But many organizations don’t use their call center and field service operations to their maximum potential. Instead, many still respond reactively (and impersonally) to customer problems, chase maintenance issues, and rely on paper-based processes to tackle real-time customer needs. As a result, these organizations are being left behind.
In this series, find out how transforming customer service and field service can help you empower your employees and create an exceptional customer experience. Together with their guests, hosts Scott LeFante and Dan Cefaratti will discuss topics like:
- Enabling an internal organizational culture shift
- Creating a unified 360 degree view of the customer and the asset
- Leveraging modern toolsets including mobility and mixed reality
- Strategic application of AI and advanced analytics throughout the customer and asset lifecycle
- Connected, predictive service made possible by IoT
