Event-driven Customer Service
Event-Driven Customer Service is Superior Customer Service
It’s a truism that it costs far more to attract a new customer than to keep a current one. Customer retention is consequently a top priority for any business. At the same time, we’re in an era when it’s easier than ever for unhappy customers to take their business elsewhere, and to vent their frustrations to a mass audience on the Internet. In these circumstances, providing your customers with high-quality customer service is crucial. Event-driven customer service leverages recent technological advances to deliver a higher caliber of customer service than was previously possible.
Event-Driven Technologies Enable Real-Time Responsiveness
Progress Software is a leader in the development and application of event-driven enterprise technologies. Event-driven technologies enable businesses to monitor, analyze, and respond to fast-moving streams of internal and external events in real time. Correlating and analyzing inbound data streams from defined event sources within and outside of the enterprise, event-driven applications provide business users with actionable insight on which to base timely responses. Deployed with great success in data-intensive contexts such as equity market surveillance and automated trading, event-driven solutions have wide applicability to any arena in which there’s a premium on being able to respond quickly and intelligently to continually changing operational conditions and customer interactions.
