Omnichannel, predictive analytics, and big data! Oh my! These three terms are just a few of the many customer experience (CX) considerations that have become hot topic buzzwords for chat centers. Unfortunately, the lack of a rigid, standard definition for many of these terms has created an opening for many opportunistic legacy chat vendors. Some vendors are claiming they're able to provide these features to customers with quasi-solutions, misleading claims, and outdated technology. Unless you've spent a decade working in a chat center understanding how these technology capabilities truly work, it can be difficult to know if your chat vendor is providing everything they claim.
