“Today’s leading edge contact centers are seeking ways to engage with their customers utilizing TEXT. Consumer behavior has changed over time. There was a time when the phone was the easiest way to get something done. Then the next generation of consumer behavior was to send an email and call if it’s urgent. Recently we see more consumers using email and then texting when it’s urgent. Millennials prefer a text back instead of a call back”, stated Dean Garfinkel.
