Parks Associates’ Patrice Samuels, Senior Analyst, and CSS Corp’s Sid Victor, VP and Head of Support Services gave insightful opinions on supporting consumers post purchase. Here are a few highlights:

Samuels started the cast with a brief introduction of the participants and the agenda and then allowed audience members to interact by answering a question about what creates the biggest challenge to positive technical support experiences. She then discussed the changing roles of connected devices in broadband households as technology evolves and consumers expect their devices to be there to support them more regularly.

Samuels then opened another poll question to find out what most inhibits deploying an automated support strategy for audience’s customers, with high IT and technology investment needs being the most among pollers.

Afterward, Victor introduced transforming customer support through cognitive automation, where consumer data is analyzed by bots with deep learning capabilities to provide positive outcomes for technical problems.The webcast recording and slides are available for download.
