Without a doubt, the integration of video in the contact centre has taken on great strength today. The situation of confinement unleashed by COVID-19 has led to a notable increase in the use of video-conferencing tools. And contact centres are not far from this situation. This situation has changed operations. It has led many customer service centres to adopt the remote working mode and user interactions have increased considerably. Thus, how to integrate another interaction channel such as video into the customer experience strategy is increasingly important.

In this way, the resource of the video has become a solution for developing a relationship of greater trust and closeness with customers. Well, it puts a face to a name, thus streamlining processes and increasing the degree of satisfaction and even user loyalty, generating a personalised customer experience and, with great focus on the perception of the solution to the customer’s problem or issue, offering a better understanding of the products that are contracted, their functionalities and characteristics.

Face-to-face communication is applicable to all areas of the services provided by a contact centre:

  • Customer service;
  • Sales and telemarketing;
  • Recoveries;
  • Meeting agendas;
  • Retention and loyalty services; and
  • Technical support.

Hence, the importance of having an omni-channel tool that allows offering a transversal and frictionless experience, and that also allows the integration with a robust solution of attention and support through video. In this way, better customer experience is achieved and processes are made more efficient.
