Blended Agents whitepaper

While many businesses have built their brand identities and reputations around providing outstanding customer service, the importance of doing so is rising to new heights. New customer expectations are fueling what PricewaterhouseCoopers refer to as an “experience economy”, where nearly three-quarters of consumers feel that a positive experience as a key driver in influencing their brand loyalties¹.

But at the same time, most businesses haven’t struck the right balance with the technology they’ve deployed to optimize the customer experience. While consumers may appreciate the quick hit results available to them via a chatbot or social media exchange, PwC data shows that consumers want the opportunity for more, not less, human interaction.

So how can businesses use technology to deliver on new customer expectations and strike the right balance of human and digital experiences?
