Multichannel Customer Contact

The overall research objective of this research service was to investigate the current use and future adaptation of multichannel customer contact in European contact centers. Overall, the use rates of mobile apps, social media, Web self-service, and chat are growing, while use rates of LiveAgent voice and email are declining. About 25% of contact center organizations state that their contact channels are fully integrated and able to deliver seamless and consistent customer experiences across channels, which is expected to reach 50% by 2016. The proportion of automated customer interactions is expected to grow from 41% in 2014 to 58% by 2016.

Research Background and Objectives
This research study is part of a series of survey-based studies that look at the current and future adoption of various customer contact strategies, enabling technologies, and services. The survey data and insights allow contact center organizations to understand better the industry and technology trends and apply the findings in their businesses.

Methodology
Using a Web-based survey methodology during February 2014, Frost & Sullivan surveyed contact center/customer care decision makers who were working in businesses located in Europe and who were involved in evaluating, specifying, recommending, or approving the purchase of contact center products or services.
Frost & Sullivan’s survey methodology uses online panels to source only qualified respondents. Respondents must meet requirements set by a screening process prior to full survey participation. Online panels consist of individuals who volunteer to participate in Web-based surveys and typically receive compensation directly from their panel membership for participating in qualified survey research. In general, survey respondents do not receive direct compensation from Frost & Sullivan for participating in research projects.
