3 Customer Service Trends Expected for 2018 and Beyond

These 3 takeaways are from a well written article on the Agility PR site.

* In a customer service survey, only 19 percent of respondents trust completely what brands say on their website. Instead, they rely on reviews on other sites to provide honesty. These will be sites such as TrustAdvisor or G2Crowd.

* Most customers will only tolerate a 1-hour response window. This is regardless of how they reach out (social media, web chat or web contact form).

* Customers are online from early morning until after 10pm. This will likely start to shape new hours of operations for social media and customer service departments and/or increase the use of other digital properties like messenger bots.

In a Zendesk Research survey, they found that ticket volumes can increase as much as 42% over the holidays.

1. Build a list (and check it twice)
2. Bring the gift of self-service (to your site or mobile app) 
3. Bots… the new elves in your support workshop 
4. Chat your way to a few more holiday sales
5. A few more gifts under the tree

Of course, you can also explore the integrated ticketing solution bolstered by Virtual Observer and Zendesk
