Adam shares tips for using automated customer service while keeping in tune with customers and preventing disasters.
Preventing automated customer service disasters
Automated customer service can help to create a smoother, more convenient process for customers while freeing up company resources. Ideally, it’s a win/win situation. But sometimes technology creates terrible experiences for customers, even while we think everything’s working well.

Sometimes it’s not the tech itself that fails in the end, but the processes we create around it.
