Using a Caller’s First Name Remains the Most Popular Way to Personalise the Customer Experience
Despite the technology that is now available to contact centres, to help personalise the customer experience, the method of using the customer’s first name when interacting with them, is still the favored method in the majority of contact centres.
Other popular options to do so include having: a separate queue for high value customers (34%), route callers based on CLI (32%) and route callers to the last agent the caller had spoken to (27%).
