What to expect:
Hear from GM Financial’s CXO, Bob Beatty on how his team expedited their conversational strategy — shifting 60% of customer contact to messaging and automation to manage 5x contact volume.
In January 2020, GM Financial had an aggressive goal in place: By the end of the year, their customer contacts handled by messaging would go from 10% to 50%. Now, GM Financial is among the brands that has seen a year’s worth of evolution take place in a matter of weeks — as of this May, they have already blown past their goal with 60% of contacts coming through messaging. As they look ahead to the rest of this year, GM Financial has their sights set on automation, aiming to automate 50% of these interactions. Bob will walk us through:
Bob Beatty is the Chief Experience Officer at GM Financial. Over the past several years he has led his team in making substantial investments in establishing a customer communication platform that is less transactional and more conversational in nature, less burdensome and more convenient and respectful of his customers’ most valuable asset: time. He aims to create the best customer experience in the world, regularly exceeding customer, dealer, and OEM expectations.
This is the second installment of a new series where we explore the future of the contact center and customer care. Our take? For the traditional contact center — with hundreds of people sitting side by side, taking calls to service one customer at a time — there simply is no future. The contact center as we know it today is over. Come together with your peers to discuss how conversational AI and messaging are shaping what's next.
