About the Webcast

The customer engagement and experience landscape is rapidly changing, but what will be the main focus in 2019?

Join us for the upcoming live webcast, Customer Engagement 2019—Top Trends, Predictions and Priorities, with guest Forrester Research as we explore the trends, predictions and priorities that will shape the future of customer engagement in 2019—and beyond.

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the key takeaways we’ll cover:

-Companies will continue to invest in AI for customer engagement, but the C-suite will demand that they be grounded in reality—and deliver real business results.

-The consumer backlash against chatbots will begin and rollouts will come under extreme scrutiny to deliver on consumer and enterprise expectations.

-Prudent companies will invest in humans again and take a blended AI approach that combines automation and a human touch.

-Fraudsters will become more sophisticated in targeting voice and digital engagement channels.

Reserve your spot to make sure you don’t miss out on these valuable insights. Even if you can’t join us, register and we’ll send you a recording of the webcast to watch whenever you like.
