What’s Up Next?

InMoment’s vision for the future focuses on continuous innovation and improvement. Our roadmap includes significant advancements in AI and NLP, particularly  enhancing feedback solicitation and data integration. Here’s how these initiatives will empower your brand:

Conversational Listening: Moving from static to dynamic, conversational feedback solicitation will significantly improve the quality and quantity of customer insights. For instance, real-time conversational analytics will allow your support teams to address issues more promptly and accurately, enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty.

LLM-Powered Listening: Leveraging large language models to enhance the understanding of customer feedback will enable deeper, more nuanced insights. This can help your marketing team create targeted campaigns based on precise customer sentiment and preferences, driving higher engagement and conversion rates.

Non-Text Data Ingestion: Integrating non-textual data sources will provide a more complete view of the customer experience. For example, combining text analytics with visual or behavioral data can give your product development team a holistic view of how customers interact with your products, leading to more user-friendly designs and features.

Automated Action: Implementing AI-assisted frontline coaching and content recommendations will drive efficient customer recovery and engagement. Imagine your customer service platform automatically suggesting the best responses to inquiries based on historical data and context, reducing response times and improving the overall customer experience.

These advancements will position InMoment at the forefront of the CX industry, providing our customers with the toolkit they need to drive customer acquisition, retention, and growth. By integrating these cutting-edge technologies, your brand can stay ahead of the competition, continuously adapt to evolving customer needs, and achieve sustainable business success.
