4 All rights reserved © 2007, Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories, Inc. 4  “Those few interactions where customers have an unusual amount of emotional energy invested in the outcome.”  “…when the long-term relationship between a business and its customers can change significantly – for better or for worse.”  “Superb handling of these moments requires a … response that puts the customer’s emotional needs ahead of the company’s and the employee’s agenda.”  “The emotionally driven behavior [during moments of truth] explains how great customer service companies earn trust and loyalty.”  “The impact on the bottom line is clear.”  “Pure technological solutions can never stoke the emotional connection between employee and customer.” – The McKinsey Quarterly 2006 Moments of Truth in the Customer Experience

5 All rights reserved © 2007, Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories, Inc. 5 A day in my life…  Unexplained charge on cell phone bill  Call answered by automated system Cooperative user of automation, but need real human  Call excerpts: Authentication & Menu Selection: Transfer Message with Wait Time: On Hold Messaging: Agent Greeting (after 10+ min) : Moment of Truth #1 Cell Phone Company

7 All rights reserved © 2007, Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories, Inc. 7 Moments of Truth #2 Phone Company  Written check for $XX.X7 was mis-scanned as $XX.X2  Call answered by Natural Language Speech System  Transfer to Agent: Asks for phone number again. Mistypes it 3X, saying account doesn’t exist! Finally finds account & immediately says he has to transfer me to Collections!! Not empowered to re-credit 5 cents  Transfer to Supervisor: Says she has resolved issue, and correction will appear on next month’s bill  Next month’s bill: 5 cents still not re-credited  My re-summarizing dispute: “This is costing your company & my impression of your customer service WAY MORE than 5 cents!!!”

10 All rights reserved © 2007, Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories, Inc. 10 Customers do not live in a world of Silos They live in a world of Experiences & Emotions Call Center Branch Office/Store Speech Automation Chat SMS Text Messaging Back Office Web Sales & Marketing Video Specialist Direct Mail Product Lines Outbound Calls

11 All rights reserved © 2007, Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories, Inc. 11 Closing Thoughts…  Design VUI with end-to-end Customer Experience in mind Anticipate & coordinate smooth cross-channel transitions both before & after VUI  (Speech) automation is incapable of handling emotional Moments of Truth As long as we can still tell it’s not a real human, there’s no real empathy Evaluate how VUI may be perceived in a Moment of Truth  Speech system should not block Customers from reaching real humans Let real humans do what humans do best! Companies should create more opportunities to speak with loyal Customers  Speech technology is best used for: Non-emotionally-charged tasks -Is Account Balance a non-emotionally-charged task? That depends… Getting just enough info to quickly transfer call to most appropriate resource Potentially pre-identifying Moment-of-Truth calls based on: -Natural Language phrases and/or Emotion Detection of caller’s voice
