Concurrently, CRMs are also playing a pivotal role today in ensuring better customer experience.

Other interesting features include auto-bots where computer coded messages can be used for answering trivial customer questions. Lastly, businesses that implement unified communications with customer data, embedding it throughout the organization, can provide a stellar customer experience.
