    Most companies initially invested in their voice contact centers, which is still the bread and butter of most customer relationships. However, it is necessary to make sure voice customer interactions can now cross Web, mobile and social interaction channels, creating personalized experiences through continuous customer conversations. Finally, these interactions should seem like they are managed by one, not multiple, organizations. 

There is a fundamental shift underway in how consumers interact with businesses. According to research from Ovum on consumer preferences for customer service, the use of email, Web chat, Web self-service, social media, mobile and SMS for customer service has more than doubled in the past two years. At the same time, consumers still rely upon picking up the telephone to call an agent to resolve the same issue.
