Major changes in business operations and consumer behavior since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic have increased demand for advanced customer experience (CX) capabilities, with enterprises adopting new technologies at different rates depending on their maturity and needs, according to a new research report published by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a global technology research and advisory firm.
The 2022 ISG Provider Lens™ Contact Center — Customer Experience Services Archetype report finds that contact center operations are being transformed by automation and analytics as companies adapt to remote, home-based and hybrid work models. More companies are embracing AI bots, speech analytics, sentiment analysis and other tools to improve both customer and employee experience.
"At the highest levels of leadership, enterprises are recognizing the strategic importance of customer experience," said Jan Erik Aase, partner and global leader, ISG Provider Lens Research. "Modern digital customer experience technology is becoming essential, especially as hiring and retaining skilled agents grows more challenging. Companies are seeking providers’ help at all stages of this evolution."
The 2022 ISG Provider Lens™ Contact Center — Customer Experience Services Archetype report summarizes the relative capabilities of contact center service providers to meet the needs of typical, frequently encountered categories, or archetypes, of enterprise buyers. Each archetype represents a specific set of business and technology needs and challenges, which vary over time. Most organizations, especially large enterprises, include teams or business units that fit into different archetypes.
The report examines four archetypes within enterprise clients that are looking for contact center services. The report evaluates the capabilities of 26 customer experience services providers to deliver services to the four archetypes:
Automation Embracers: These clients are relatively new to digitalization but have made it a priority. The pandemic has pushed them to adopt new customer experience channels and use automation to ensure customer loyalty and retention. Cost savings remains a priority. They are looking to leverage global expertise and presence to overcome inadequate skills and technologies.
Digital Connoisseurs: These more mature clients have explored omnichannel customer engagement and are familiar with advanced CX technologies, including automation. They plan to scale digital transformation to improve CX for competitive advantage. Clients in this archetype want to partner with providers that have broad digital capabilities extending to AI and machine learning.
CX Evangelists: For these clients, transforming CX through analytics is the highest priority. They look for strategic business partners with implementation experience, transformation solutions and a wide range of analytics services. CX Evangelists demand highly skilled domain experts as agents and evaluate partnerships based on revenue, customer satisfaction and other business outcomes.
Work-From-Home Buyers: Clients in this archetype are looking to adopt a completely work-from-home or hybrid work model. Cost savings, business resiliency and access to a large talent pool are their main objectives. They seek service providers with the training, skills, agents and technologies — including cloud contact centers and robust security — to enable a work-from-home infrastructure.
Among the providers ISG evaluated, HGS, Sitel Group, Sutherland and Teleperformance are named as Leaders across all four archetypes. Cognizant, Concentrix, Conduent and Tech Mahindra are named as Leaders across three archetypes each. Atento and TTEC are named as Leaders across two archetypes each. 7.ai, EXL, Infosys, Startek, Transcom and WNS are named as Leader in one quadrant each.
