News : LivePerson Teams Up With UK Telco Provider, TalkTalk
London, UK, February, 2015 -- LivePerson, Inc. (NASDAQ: LPSN), a provider of digital engagement solutions, announce that it is teaming up with TalkTalk to help the telecoms provider move from a traditional telephone-based customer service to a more advanced online engagement technology.
The move comes about after TalkTalk's customer behaviour surveys showed their customers increasingly prefer to self-serve online – but also want to make sure help is on hand if they need it.
"Our customers don't always want to have to pick up the phone or send an email when they need help online," commented Sholto Mee, Head of Customer Services for TalkTalk. "They want fast help, in real-time, while they are on-site. We believe that digital customer service is the future, and we want our customers to be at the forefront of that revolution."
"As the traditional ways of interacting with customers, like telephone hotlines, become obsolete, it's vital that we invest in new technologies like LivePerson's LiveEngage to maintain high levels of customer service in the brave new digital world," explained Sholto.
