Social Customer Care ResearchBy Sarah Stealey Reed, content director and senior analyst at ICMI

2013 Contact Center Report

Today’s modern consumers have incredibly high customer service expectations. And, if those expectations are not met, consumers not only stop doing business with a company, they become enraged and retaliate.


At Five9 we worked with Harris Interactive on a study; we asked more than 3,000 US adults about their customer service expectations and how they feel and behave if those expectations are not met. The data proved to be very interesting…

  • When consumers have an important customer service need, 70% will first call a company on the phone for help

There are several triggers that cause consumers to become violent, enraged, or very frustrated when they call a company for customer service, these include:

  • Speaking with a rude customer service representative (60%)
  • Not reaching a live person when calling a company for support (48%)
  • Getting disconnected (44%)
  • Explaining their issue more than once (40%)
  • 85% of consumers will retaliate, in some way, against a company if their customer service needs are not met
  • 74% of consumers said they would be more forgiving when a company couldn’t resolve their problem over the phone if the agent they were speaking with was respectful

These are just some highlights from the research; you can download the full Five9 2013 Contact Center Report here.
