The potential of video seems to have captured the imagination of contact centre leaders, with 75.6% of contact centres interested in using the channel for “how to” tutorials.

Also, 61.1% would like to see videos used to combat common customer queries through placing recorded answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) on the website.

However, percentages drop considerably when it comes to implementing the channel for live advisor conversations.

Less than a third of contact centres would enjoy implementing the channel for one-to-one product demonstrations (32.0%). Even fewer feel the same way about using video to actively deal with customer queries (31.4%).

This survey was done in partnership with Akixi, NICE, Nuance, Odigo, Poly and ProcedureFlow.
