Data security is no longer just a nice-to-have for messaging and live chat. Data breaches are becoming common, and in an environment where mindfulness about privacy is at an all-time high, businesses risk serious damage if they fail to keep up. This privacy focus also arrives at a time when customer demands for immediacy are also peaking. Live chat solutions are designed to provide fast communications, but can they also do it while securing business and customer privacy? It seems like an oxymoron.

Support demand is rapidly and continuously increasing and few businesses are prepared to address the rising needs of their customers. According to TeamSupport’s State of Support report for 2022, overall support demand is rising at an average rate of 11%. That means your support team is getting more emails, more requests, more everything. Chances are that your support team is already getting hammered by the sheer volume of customer issues, not to mention the potential for complexity.

Providing honest, good customer service is a low-bar to clear – or so it seems. A good customer service platform really just has to do one thing, put the customer first. On the outside, it looks like a simple grade-school high jump competition. The bar is low, it looks easy to jump, but once you get into all the technicalities of the Fosbury Flop, it starts to get a smidge dicey.

Most businesses maintain some sort of customer self-service tools, whether it’s a chatbot or guide bot framework or a collection of knowledge base articles. Chances are your business maintains some sort of a self-service option, but does your business do a good job of promoting that to your customers? Self-service provides customers the opportunity to solve a question on their own without directly involving your customer support team or help desk ticketing software.

A customer can expect everything from the ordinary to the seemingly impossible. But whether or not a customer is asking you to take them to the Moon or provide a simple reporting apparatus, your business needs to be able to meet their expectations in at least some manner, or risk the consequences.

Imagine you just bought a brand new guitar and you’re ready to shred. Your amp is on and set high, your cords are all plugged in, you’re ready to jam. You strum an E major chord only to find that it plays an F minor – not good. You just want to noodle over Baba O’Reilly but now you have to call support, explain a whole spiel, and potentially deal with long wait times and some irritating back-and-forth until you can finally realize your inner Sister Rosetta Tharpe.

Raise your hand if you’ve heard that your business needs to be customer centric. Now raise your hand if your business is customer centric. If you didn’t raise your hand at all – and not only because you are in a public space and are wary of strangers seeing you perform erratic movements – then you better quickly learn why your B2B business needs to be customer centric. Never even heard of customer centricity?

Rome wasn’t built in a day – and it didn’t fall in one either. Come the 4th and 5th centuries, the leaders neglected the needs of their various peoples, and oftentimes, as in the case of Majorian, they seemed outright surprised at the unpopularity of some measures. Could Majorian have used a 360-degree view of his Roman subjects (read: customers)?

Living in the Digital Age, so much of our lives are saturated with data and information. But with so much information available, sometimes we can feel like Johnny Mnemonic, past cranial-storage capacity, where additional data doesn’t help us solve any problems, and instead makes it even more difficult to solve problems.

The concept of customer experience has become one of the main focuses of customer-facing teams, and for good reason. The customer experience is at the forefront of everything a company does for its customers, whether it's the products and services they provide or the simple, everyday interactions between them. Concepts like customer-centricity and being customer-first are now at the forefront of a pioneering spirit in customer support and related fields, yet many companies are still falling behind.
