Relationship status: Engaged
Communicate with your customers—their way.
Customers want to interact with you on their terms. Providing choice in a multichannel world will help ensure that you are "in the game" at each moment of truth in your customer relationship.
Customer relationship management (CRM) allows you to engage effectively across each of these key channels.
Phone and email
Many customers choose to use traditional interaction mediums, so these will continue to play a critical role your channel strategy. Real-time conversation with a customer over the phone can often be the best way to handle high-value interactions, and Microsoft Outlook email continues to see high usage despite the emergence of social channels.
