GLOBAL TREND BRIEFING 
THE FUTURE 
OF CUSTOMER 
SERVICE 
Five trends that will redefine 
great service in 2015 and 
beyond.
When 1,620 consumers were tested under laboratory 
conditions, 63% said they felt their heart rate increase 
when they thought about receiving great customer 
service. 
For 53% of those tested, receiving great service triggered 
the same cerebral reactions as feeling loved.* 
The takeaway? When it comes to customer service, it’s not 
about what consumers think. Great service is about feelings. 
Receiving great customer 
service triggers the same 
cerebral reactions as 
feeling loved. 
* American Express Service Study, September 2013

The future of customer 
service is more than just 
drone delivery. 
www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 3
Our hunch? There are plenty of new technologies, clever 
concepts and even trends that could help brands offer better 
service to consumers. But too few brands understand that 
amid all this rapid change, the fundamentals of great service 
remain the same. It’s about the feeling of being recognized. 
Listened to. Valued and cared for. 
Smart brands will find new ways to serve those age-old 
imperatives. They could start by applying one (or all!) of the five 
trends below. 
Of course, these trends offer just a glimpse of THE FUTURE 
OF CUSTOMER SERVICE, not the entire picture. But they’re five 
manifestations of the shifting consumer expectation that will 
redefine great service in 2015 and beyond. 
Plenty of brands are 
mainlining the hype around 
new customer service 
technologies, concepts, 
and yes, even trends. 
Trouble is, customers aren’t feeling any 
better.

4% 
82% 
100% 
Globally in 2013, 66% of consumers switched brands or 
business due to poor customer service, a 4% increase on 
the previous year. Some 82% of those who switched said 
the brand could have done something to stop them.

Five trends helping to 
define THE FUTURE OF 
CUSTOMER SERVICE in 
2015 and beyond. 
1. PLAN B 
Products that come with their own backup plan. 
2. VIDEO VALETS 
Face time, any time. 
3. DELIVER (MORE THAN) THE GOODS 
Delivery. And then some. 
4. SIXTH SENSE 
The customer-focused brand has a new sense: info-sense. 
5. POLITENESS PAYS 
Because good customer service is a two-way street. 
www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 6
1. PLAN B 
Products that come with their own backup plan. 
www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 7
1. PLAN B 
Plenty of brands are 
playing lip service to 
the ‘every product a 
service’ mantra. 
One ongoing, powerful shift in consumer expectation: 
“Why own a single product, when I can have access to the right 
product when (and only when) I need it?” 
A host of forces are driving that expectation shift, from the rise 
of the sharing economy, to ever-busier, more itinerant urban 
living, to the relentless NEWISM that sees consumers thirst 
after a constant stream of new products. 
www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 8
1. PLAN B CONT... 
In 2015 truly customer-centric 
brands will 
offer a PLAN B. 
One way inventive brands are reconciling ownership and access 
– and fueling NEWISM? 
By selling products that come with a PLAN B: that is, access 
when needed to an alternative or backup product which 
overcomes limitations in the original, puts right an emergency 
(I’ve run out! It’s broken! It’s lost!), addresses a common pain 
point, and more. 
One key benefit of some PLAN B innovations? By providing 
an alternative, they remove the risk associated with outright 
purchase of new/unfamiliar products – allowing consumers 
to indulge in carefree NEWISM! Want to see how BMW did just 
this? Scroll down! 
www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 9
PLAN B: FEATURED INNOVATIONS 
BMW i3 
Electric car owners get access to petrol 
vehicles to ease ‘range anxiety’

access to emergency clothes truck 
www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 12
1. PLAN B 
NEXT 
Smart brands will be brave enough to 
be honest about product limitations, 
and to confront common customer pain 
points. For the bravest? Partner with 
another brand to offer alternatives you 
can’t. See how eBay joined forces with 
UK retailer Argos to roll out ‘click and 
collect’. PLAN A: your eBay purchase is 
delivered to your home. 
PLAN B: we’ll deliver it to your nearest 
Argos store. 
www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 13
2. VIDEO VALETS 
Face time, any time. 
www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 14
2. VIDEO VALETS 
So I can Skype my 
elderly grandmother... 
Millions of consumers worldwide have had enough of ineffective 
virtual ‘assistance’ by web or phone. 
What’s more, they’ve been enjoying on-demand face time with 
their friends for years now. The tech exists – why can’t brands 
catch up? 
Now, forward-thinking brands are finally doing just that: by 
providing webcam-enabled face-to-face interaction with their 
customer service representatives – as and when consumers 
need it. 
But the brands I buy from don’t own 
webcams? 
www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 15
75% 
The Amazon Mayday button connects Kindle Fire HDX tablet 
owners to an Amazon customer service representative via 
webcam. Among tablet owners, 75% of customer service 
interactions now come via the button.

2. VIDEO VALETS 
NEXT 
VIDEO VALETS don’t have to be about 
dealing with customer questions 
or complaints. Can you offer new 
experiences, trials and tests via 
webcam? Or even undertake key 
processes via webcam: see how US 
insurance company Esurance now 
allows webcam-enabled accident 
appraisal via smartphone.

3. DELIVER (MORE THAN) THE GOODS 
Delivery startups are hot 
again (thanks Uber ;) 
Tap to summon a taxi – done. Now, rising numbers of 
consumers will expect to tap to order just about anything. 
And this time (unlike in the early 2000’s, when the first crop of 
internet delivery businesses crashed) the logistics are viable. 
Get ready for a smartphone-fueled rush of delivery innovations. 
Meanwhile, for countless etailers big and small, delivery is 
already the key touch point they have with customers. 
One consequence? In 2015, smart brands will see delivery as 
so much more than functional. 
Whether that means cramming additional services and added 
extras into their delivery, delivering to unusual (and mobile) 
locations, or turning a standard delivery service into a force for 
broader good in the world, they’ll DELIVER (MORE THAN) THE 
GOODS. 
But truly customer-centric brands – 
established or new – will understand that 
delivery is just the start.

The delivery ecosystem is blooming, 
thanks to a host of startups and one or 
two billion-dollar megaliths. Can you 
find a way for your brand to hitch along 
for the ride? See how chips brand Lay’s 
partnered with Uber to offer picnic 
delivery for two days in New York.

4. SIXTH SENSE 
The customer-focused brand has a new sense: 
info-sense. 
www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 31
4. SIXTH SENSE 
Even stupid brands are 
collecting consumer 
data. 
Smart sensors, face and object recognition technologies and 
wearable devices mean it’s possible to gather and analyze 
information about consumers – their location, preferences, 
purchasing histories and much more – in real-time as never 
before. 
Not to mention that consumers have been creating and trailing 
data online now forever. Online, they’re long accustomed to 
seeing that data used to personalize the products they buy and 
the experiences they enjoy. 
Now, consumers in physical spaces will increasingly expect 
the use of real-time data to shape and enhance the service 
they receive. In 2015, it’s time for brands to develop and use a 
SIXTH SENSE for information. 
Only smart brands have a SIXTH SENSE 
for it. 
www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 32
In 2014, 36% of global consumers are willing to share their 
current location with retailers via GPS – that’s 
almost double the number who were in 2013.

4. SIXTH SENSE 
NEXT 
We know what you’re thinking. Privacy! 
Brands with a SIXTH SENSE must be 
cool and not creepy when it comes to 
seamless data use and collection. Rising 
numbers of aware consumers will want 
to know where you’re storing their data, 
and how you plan to use it. Transparency 
and common sense are key. 
www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 38
5. POLITENESS PAYS 
Because good customer service is a two-way street. 
www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 39
5. POLITENESS PAYS 
The worst part about 
a whole range of 
consumer experiences? 
Yes, the brand/consumer relationship is democratized as 
never before. But – as we’ve discussed with trends such as 
DEMANDING BRANDS – that has led to some counterintuitive 
results. 
In a relationship of equals, demands can go both ways. And 
that’s why rising numbers of consumers are willing to let brands 
demand something of them – a little contribution, effort, even 
pain – in the name of some broader good. 
The implications for customer service? In 2015, smart brands 
will realize that it’s often other consumers who have the 
greatest impact on customer experience – good or bad. So 
they’ll encourage – or even force – every consumer to do 
their bit when it comes to creating a positive atmosphere and 
ensuring processes run smoothly. 
The other consumers, of course ;)

5. POLITENESS PAYS 
NEXT 
Yes, we’ve noticed too: right now 
restaurants and cafés are all over the 
POLITENESS PAYS trend. But expect it 
to spread anywhere consumers impact 
on each other’s experiences. Flights? 
Cinemas? Shopping malls? Swimming 
pools? The list of potential applications is 
endless. 
www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 45
IN CONCLUSION... 
www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 46
It’s not about the 
trends. 
Ultimately, trends are only a means to an 
end. That is: delighting, surprising, and 
serving consumers. So GET GOING!

trendwatching.com's THE FUTURE OF CUSTOMER SERVICE

  • 1. September 2014 GLOBAL TREND BRIEFING THE FUTURE OF CUSTOMER SERVICE Five trends that will redefine great service in 2015 and beyond.
  • 2. When 1,620 consumers were tested under laboratory conditions, 63% said they felt their heart rate increase when they thought about receiving great customer service. For 53% of those tested, receiving great service triggered the same cerebral reactions as feeling loved.* The takeaway? When it comes to customer service, it’s not about what consumers think. Great service is about feelings. Receiving great customer service triggers the same cerebral reactions as feeling loved. * American Express Service Study, September 2013 www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 2
  • 3. The future of customer service is more than just drone delivery. www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 3
  • 4. Our hunch? There are plenty of new technologies, clever concepts and even trends that could help brands offer better service to consumers. But too few brands understand that amid all this rapid change, the fundamentals of great service remain the same. It’s about the feeling of being recognized. Listened to. Valued and cared for. Smart brands will find new ways to serve those age-old imperatives. They could start by applying one (or all!) of the five trends below. Of course, these trends offer just a glimpse of THE FUTURE OF CUSTOMER SERVICE, not the entire picture. But they’re five manifestations of the shifting consumer expectation that will redefine great service in 2015 and beyond. Plenty of brands are mainlining the hype around new customer service technologies, concepts, and yes, even trends. Trouble is, customers aren’t feeling any better. www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 4
  • 5. 66% 4% 82% 100% Globally in 2013, 66% of consumers switched brands or business due to poor customer service, a 4% increase on the previous year. Some 82% of those who switched said the brand could have done something to stop them. www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 5
  • 6. Five trends helping to define THE FUTURE OF CUSTOMER SERVICE in 2015 and beyond. 1. PLAN B Products that come with their own backup plan. 2. VIDEO VALETS Face time, any time. 3. DELIVER (MORE THAN) THE GOODS Delivery. And then some. 4. SIXTH SENSE The customer-focused brand has a new sense: info-sense. 5. POLITENESS PAYS Because good customer service is a two-way street. www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 6
  • 7. 1. PLAN B Products that come with their own backup plan. www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 7
  • 8. 1. PLAN B Plenty of brands are playing lip service to the ‘every product a service’ mantra. One ongoing, powerful shift in consumer expectation: “Why own a single product, when I can have access to the right product when (and only when) I need it?” A host of forces are driving that expectation shift, from the rise of the sharing economy, to ever-busier, more itinerant urban living, to the relentless NEWISM that sees consumers thirst after a constant stream of new products. www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 8
  • 9. 1. PLAN B CONT... In 2015 truly customer-centric brands will offer a PLAN B. One way inventive brands are reconciling ownership and access – and fueling NEWISM? By selling products that come with a PLAN B: that is, access when needed to an alternative or backup product which overcomes limitations in the original, puts right an emergency (I’ve run out! It’s broken! It’s lost!), addresses a common pain point, and more. One key benefit of some PLAN B innovations? By providing an alternative, they remove the risk associated with outright purchase of new/unfamiliar products – allowing consumers to indulge in carefree NEWISM! Want to see how BMW did just this?

  • 10. PLAN B: FEATURED INNOVATIONS BMW i3 Electric car owners get access to petrol vehicles to ease ‘range anxiety’ www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 10

  • 13. 1. PLAN B NEXT Smart brands will be brave enough to be honest about product limitations, and to confront common customer pain points. For the bravest? Partner with another brand to offer alternatives you can’t. See how eBay joined forces with UK retailer Argos to roll out ‘click and collect’. PLAN A: your eBay purchase is delivered to your home. PLAN B: we’ll deliver it to your nearest Argos store. www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 13
  • 14. 2. VIDEO VALETS Face time, any time. www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 14
  • 15. 2. VIDEO VALETS So I can Skype my elderly grandmother... Millions of consumers worldwide have had enough of ineffective virtual ‘assistance’ by web or phone. What’s more, they’ve been enjoying on-demand face time with their friends for years now. The tech exists – why can’t brands catch up? Now, forward-thinking brands are finally doing just that: by providing webcam-enabled face-to-face interaction with their customer service representatives – as and when consumers need it. But the brands I buy from don’t own webcams? www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 15

  • 24. 3. DELIVER (MORE THAN) THE GOODS Delivery startups are hot again (thanks Uber ;) Tap to summon a taxi – done. Now, rising numbers of consumers will expect to tap to order just about anything. And this time (unlike in the early 2000’s, when the first crop of internet delivery businesses crashed) the logistics are viable. Get ready for a smartphone-fueled rush of delivery innovations. Meanwhile, for countless etailers big and small, delivery is already the key touch point they have with customers. One consequence? In 2015, smart brands will see delivery as so much more than functional. Whether that means cramming additional services and added extras into their delivery, delivering to unusual (and mobile) locations, or turning a standard delivery service into a force for broader good in the world, they’ll DELIVER (MORE THAN) THE GOODS. But truly customer-centric brands – established or new – will understand that delivery is just the start. www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 24

  • 31. 4. SIXTH SENSE The customer-focused brand has a new sense: info-sense. www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 31
  • 32. 4. SIXTH SENSE Even stupid brands are collecting consumer data. Smart sensors, face and object recognition technologies and wearable devices mean it’s possible to gather and analyze information about consumers – their location, preferences, purchasing histories and much more – in real-time as never before. Not to mention that consumers have been creating and trailing data online now forever. Online, they’re long accustomed to seeing that data used to personalize the products they buy and the experiences they enjoy. Now, consumers in physical spaces will increasingly expect the use of real-time data to shape and enhance the service they receive. In 2015, it’s time for brands to develop and use a SIXTH SENSE for information. Only smart brands have a SIXTH SENSE for it. www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 32
  • 33. In 2014, 36% of global consumers are willing to share their current location with retailers via GPS – that’s almost double the number who were in 2013. IBM, JANUARY 2014 36% www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 33

  • 38. 4. SIXTH SENSE NEXT We know what you’re thinking. Privacy! Brands with a SIXTH SENSE must be cool and not creepy when it comes to seamless data use and collection. Rising numbers of aware consumers will want to know where you’re storing their data, and how you plan to use it. Transparency and common sense are key. www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 38
  • 39. 5. POLITENESS PAYS Because good customer service is a two-way street. www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 39
  • 40. 5. POLITENESS PAYS The worst part about a whole range of consumer experiences? Yes, the brand/consumer relationship is democratized as never before. But – as we’ve discussed with trends such as DEMANDING BRANDS – that has led to some counterintuitive results. In a relationship of equals, demands can go both ways. And that’s why rising numbers of consumers are willing to let brands demand something of them – a little contribution, effort, even pain – in the name of some broader good. The implications for customer service? In 2015, smart brands will realize that it’s often other consumers who have the greatest impact on customer experience – good or bad. So they’ll encourage – or even force – every consumer to do their bit when it comes to creating a positive atmosphere and ensuring processes run smoothly. The other consumers, of course ;) www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 40
  • 41. 54% 54% of New York consumers say it is rude and inappropriate to text, tweet, email or talk on a cellphone during a restaurant meal. ZAGAT, OCTOBER 2013 www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 41

  • 45. 5. POLITENESS PAYS NEXT Yes, we’ve noticed too: right now restaurants and cafés are all over the POLITENESS PAYS trend. But expect it to spread anywhere consumers impact on each other’s experiences. Flights? Cinemas? Shopping malls? Swimming pools? The list of potential applications is endless. www.trendwatching.com/trends/future-customer-service THE FUTURE OF Cusotmer servcei 45
