At the same time, the definition of customer needs and service have been changing. Customers are now expecting a new kind of service experience, one that immediately answers their questions and solves their problems.

This explains the rise in digital workforce solutions and why AI and intelligent automation are increasingly being adopted in contact centers to augment and scale the performance of human agents.
