4 Crucial Trends for the 2018 Holiday Retail Season

As retailers review lessons learned from previous holidays seasons, one issue is perennial: customer requests for support tend to surge dramatically over the holidays. Retailers are always bombarded with consumer queries during the final months of the year, no matter if it's in-store or online. As sales go up, consumers will also be more conscious of a business's overall customer experience.

Companies can find it challenging to manage both the influx of customers and the accompanying rise in support tickets—what’s more, ticket surge will vary by channel. Luckily, this is an increasingly omnichannel retail world. Customers have increasing service expectations for the channel of their preference, not to mention the benefits of a seamless customer experience. They can be assured that they'll get the help they need when a company has it's omnichannel bases covered.

Zendesk examined data from retailers all over the world. Findings around omnichannel in the retail industry include:

  • Speed of the first reply is directly linked to customer satisfaction
  • 在 11 月和 12 月,所有管道中的工單量都有明顯增長趨勢
  • Ticket volume year over year has climbed dramatically in each channel – and astoundingly so for newer channels like Facebook and Twitter
  • When ticket volume surges, disjointed support systems fail, sacrificing first-reply times and CSAT scores

These findings relate directly to how omnichannel can benefit consumers. Bringing everything together through an omnichannel retail experience is how customers can be satisfied even as ticket volumes inflate.
