Introducing the Service Intelligence Layer
Something different for this week. I’ve collected a bunch of tools together in a single article, called Introducing the Service Intelligence Layer. These are tools that specifically serve to improve customer service by integrating with existing CRM and case management platforms. Some of them have been featured in newsletter spotlights before, others are not as well known to me. I’m open to corrections, additions and reviews, so if you have opinions, feel free to share them with me.
Best wishes,
