Palm Beach, FL – August 16, 2021 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – The Software as a Service (SaaS) Customer Engagement market is projected to grow significantly through 2026. Customer engagement software helps to manage customer communications and interactions throughout a variety of channels and touchpoints. Customer service is the main reason that empowers customers to exhibit brand loyalty, thus bringing continuous revenues to organizations across industries. As per a report from Aspects Software, 66% of consumers did more business with at least one company because of good customer service. Moreover, in 2018, 56% of consumers used AI for their customer service interactions at least once a week. With the increasing smartphone and internet usage, customers can easily access information about different products and services across multiple channels, like the web, social media, and other applications. With an average time spent on mobile phones reaching around 5 hours per day and the availability of multiple customer touchpoints, like websites, social media, live chats, phone calls, apart from the in-person assistance, brands find ample opportunity to engage customers with their brand and generate more revenues. A report from Mordor Intelligence said that the customer engagement solutions market was valued at USD 15.52 billion in 2020, and it is expected to reach USD 30.92 billion by 2026, with a CAGR of 12.65%, during the forecast period (2021 – 2026). Active Companies in the markets today include Infobird Co., Ltd (NASDAQ: IFBD), Zeta (NYSE: ZETA), Zendesk, Inc. (NYSE: ZEN), HubSpot, Inc. (NYSE: HUBS), Sprinklr, Inc. (NYSE: CXM).
Mordor Intelligence added: “In addition to the cloud-based solutions, the integration of AI is another trend that is becoming a standard offering by the vendors in the market. According to Pegasystems, a prominent vendor in the market, in 2018, 67% of customer experience leaders that embraced AI believed that it is not only a tool to make the customer experience more efficient, but also to create more meaningful relationships with consumers. However, Data security and privacy issues can hinder the growth of the customer engagement solutions market. According to the study by Aspect Software, retail is among the top industries to have high customer churn rate, with the main reason for brand switching being poor customer experience. In such a competitive retail market, the need for new customer acquisition and retention of the existing customers become crucial for the retailers.”

Envato’s Chief Content Officer, Cameron Gough, said the partnership was a natural connection between two businesses committed to making it easy to build an engaging web presence faster. “The Envato Market ecosystem and ThemeForest, in particular, is a well-respected website design marketplace, with millions of customers supported by a hugely talented group of largely exclusive theme authors.”

This heavyweight vendor, based in New York, presented one of the first broader visions beyond social media: to become a “customer experience management” platform and solve the chaos of using multiple point solutions across digital channels. The vendor’s execution roadmap focuses on solidifying core areas of its platform by adding to its extensive list of channels, use cases, and third-party integrations (though not with other social technology). Armed with new FedRAMP-ready status, Sprinklr is expanding its target market to include public sector organizations.
While other vendors go deep in only a few social media modules, Sprinklr delivers across all social media needs at equal depth — listening, customer service, organic publishing, and advertising — plus some secondary social products like influencer management and employee advocacy. AI “smart” features persist across the platform, from autodetecting themes to ensuring compliance against guidelines to recommending customer service responses.
