Robotic ‘cut and paste’ responses just prolong arguments. Instead analyse common complaints and empower agents to resolve.

Tie all channel interactions to a contact so that regardless of who handles the case they’re aware of what happened before

Use channel most appropriate to resolving complaint quickly i.e. don’t tweet a 30-minute conversation. Pick up the phone!
