Question 1: What is customer support automation?
A helpful customer service tool that automatically and efficiently generates answers to simple but frequently asked questions. For example: When will my order arrive?
Question 2: What is an omni-channel customer experience?
Different customer touch points (email, SMS, social, chat, phone) through a variety of different channels that are all connected. This allows customers to start a conversation on one channel and then continue on another.

Brands can invest in a third party integration like Gorgias that keeps track of every inquiry coming in as an individual ticket.

Question 6: What is customer support quality and how does one measure it?

Understand the negative comment and offer a resolution. Brands can:
