Combining best of voice and online to create seamless customer experience  

With the rapid global adoption of smartphones, the smartphone self-service market becomes bigger by the day. There are some 1,800 mobile operators and MVNOs globally and a growing number of these providers are recognizing the need for customer selfservice. At the same time in mature smartphone markets, end-users expect more advanced selfservice including omni-channel support, providing an effortless experience throughout the customer journey. 

These two trends represent a fantastic growth opportunity for Qelp, but require a substantial investment in product offering and innovation. To design an effortless customer experience across channels: voice, online, on-device, social and retail. A more integrated customer service offering will take us closer to an omni-channel solution that ultimately results in a better customer experience for mobile operators and MVNOs.
