We're Customer Experience
Management Professionals ;)
We're a tenured multi-channel contact center providing 24/7 customer delight through social, chat, email and traditional call services.
Customer Expectations have changed because the way people communicate has completely changed. But, that doesn't mean you abandon call centers, just extend your reach.
First off, we've been providing contact center support for over 20 years. We became experts in communicating through social media because 5 years ago our partner brand was under attack. And that experience led to developing proprietary software and writing Social Media Leadership.
As a product manager, I am constantly challenged to find ways to maximize revenues and reduce expenses. Stratus has always supported our goals by developing creative solutions that ensured continued success of our company.

Social media will become the #2 customer interaction method... just behind face-to-face interaction
Customer Expectations have changed and if you don't incorporate sentiment, multichannel strategy and comprehensive data analysis you are going to miss the show.
If you only greet customers when they call, you are missing support and lead generation opportunities in social media every minute.
