January 6, 2022 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 6, 2022--

The “The Changing State of Retail Customer Care” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The retail industry had undergone significant change in the past decade, witnessed by the shift from in-store to online shopping and digital engagement. Digital customer care rapidly expanded with new channels on the web, mobile apps, and social media, and older channels, such as chat and interactive voice response (IVR), embellished with new technologies.

Retail contact centers became early adopters of maturing technology under the umbrella of AI (speech technologies, machine learning (ML), and natural language understanding (NLU)) for use in IVR, virtual assistants (VA), intelligent virtual assistants (IVA)s, and other channels.
