Contact centers usually focus on customer support and customer care campaigns. The main mode of communication in contact centers is voice calls. Even in the 21st century, voice calls have been the major mode of communication to listen to the customer queries and concerns and providing them the required support and satisfactory responses.
As technology is moving fast, customer habits have also started shifting. The more communication channels have started adding up. Customers have been demanding the best customer support via different communication channels. This is the reason businesses have started adding omnichannel communication into the intelligent call center software.
Social media platforms have been an influencing factor in customer support these days. Many customers choose to write a negative review or request support on Facebook or Twitter to grab the attention of the customer support team. Regardless of whether a company is active on social media platforms or not, customers are likely to share their experiences on one or more social networking sites.
Due to the increasing popularity of social media platforms and the increasing demand for support through social media platforms, it has become necessary for contact centers to add social media as one of the communication channels.
