The hybrid workforce; how humans and technology work hand-in-hand

In collaboration with Opinium Research LLP, Verint Systems has polled more than 34,000 people in 18 countries across the globe to better understand consumer attitudes and demands around customer and employee engagement, technology and data. Marije Gould will tell you all about the hybrid workforce; how humans and technology work hand-in-hand to deliver better customer and employee experiences in our ‘always-on’ society. Our research will explore the true value of humans at work, and in customer service, as businesses turn to technology to engage with the ‘always-on’ consumer.

Winners and Losers in the Battle for Consumer Preference

The worlds top brands are locked in a long-term battle for buyer preference. Recent ForeSee research shows that while brands like Netflix, PayPal and Google continue to lead the way in digital experience, Walmart, Chase and others have made significant gains. In retail, Amazon continues to dominate through the delivery of excellent user experience and investments in delivery logistics. However, the multi-channel customer journey is now the norm enabling traditional retailers which have embraced digital, particularly mobile, to compete and prosper.
