The Future of Customer Service in a Mobile World: Smart, Connected Interactions

25th July 2012


More than 50% of inbound customer service calls across eight countries (developed and emerging) will be made from mobile devices by 2016. By 2016 36% of inbound customer service calls will be made from smartphones.

Ovum has developed an SCI maturity model as a management tool to help enterprises understand the key dimensions along which they should expect to progress.
