Given the disruption to customer channel usage levels triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic, the past year has witnessed marked shifts in CX investment strategies for many organisations.

Research indicates that globally in 2020 self-service channels, such as websites, IVR and chatbots, grew in popularity, whereas agent-assisted channel usage (phone, email, and online chat) saw a drop in comparison to 2019.  

However, distinct regional trends were also present. For instance, the UK saw phone channel volumes rise to 90 per cent in 2020, making phone the most popular channel for UK customers. Alongside this increased usage, the channel enjoyed an uptick in first contact resolution, customer satisfaction, and NPS scores in the UK.

Shifts in customer preferences and channel availability risk causing outdated contact centre CX investment strategies to miss the mark for customer needs.
