Technology is transforming the way consumers shop. Studies report that nearly 1 in 3 Americans are shopping online and the increased adoption of Smartphones is predicted to raise this number even higher. Profit margins are decreasing as comparative shopping becomes easier, forcing retailers to operate faster and leaner. So, how are retailers to compete?
In the next few years retailers must focus on forming strong connections with their customers through meaningful, personal conversations. Knowing their target audience and delivering value through service will positively differentiate companies and solidify their consumer base.
The SYKES Home Alpine Access team has over 14 years of experience providing virtual contact services to some of the nation’s largest retailers. They depend on us to provide remarkable service to their most important customers spanning the entire customer experience lifecycle.
