An omnichannel approach to customer service is the gold standard, yet CX Today reports that only 31% of contact centers have fully adopted the omnichannel environment. Even with so much technological innovation in the past few years, CX Today also says that only 55% of contact centers work in multichannel environments. Multichannel customer service, as opposed to omnichannel means companies interact with customers across various channels, but conversation history is changed each time a switch is made.
