Real-life ROI statistics are powerful, making it easy to develop a solid business case for investing in an integrated co-browsing, screen sharing, and agent video solution.

As Tom Martin, Glance CEO, said in his epic blog post, we are migrating from customer service to customer care.

Change is hard. This is no less true in customer care than it is in any other aspect of life. It’s easy to mosey along, avoiding the potential hassle of diverging from the well-worn path. The status quo is comfortable. Why do anything differently? The fact of the matter is that the underlying belief in continuing with the status quo is the thought that “we’ve achieved all that we can.” You may give lip service to new ideas, but the reality is that you’re perfectly satisfied staying where you are. It’s good enough. But is it really? Read: Top Three

The importance of humanization in online customer experience

Holly Chessman   06.30.14


Having a great customer experience online is key for me. I have four children, one dog, five fish, a large garden, and of course I work. As you might guess, my “free” time is limited. I don’t want to spend ages dashing from business to business to run errands. So whether I’m using my laptop, my phone or my iPad, I do the majority of my business online.
