While voice remains the dominant channel for consumer communications, enterprises are recognizing that their customers are increasingly seeking to reach them (and be reached) via the messaging channels of their choice, and frequently on more than one channel. With a growing mobile-first consumer base, brands must meet the challenge and seize the opportunity of engaging with consumers across all available channels. The Teckst acquisition continues LiveVox’s commitment to growing its U-Series tools, which offer an incremental path for enterprises and contact centers to evolve their operations from primarily voice-based strategies to ROI-driven digital engagement. By adopting the U-Series offering, enterprises can significantly lower the barriers to incorporating new ways of reaching their consumers while maintaining awareness of who those consumers are throughout the entire journey.
The LiveVox–Teckst merger will help businesses incorporate messaging into their overall omnichannel engagement strategy by delivering a rich two-way messaging solution that harnesses data for personalized and contextual interactions. LiveVox’s growing omnichannel offering empowers its enterprise clients to target, acquire, retain, understand, communicate, and collaborate with their customers within a single pane of glass.
