This research describes five vendors that offer innovative approaches and technology for improving the customer experience during service interactions in traditional, as well as social, channels.”

“It is an honor to be named as one of Gartner’s Cool Vendors, as we believe it signifies SmartVideo as an emerging and compelling approach for delivering engaging and effective customer service experiences,” said Jim Dicso, president of SundaySky. “Executives across industries are enhancing their customer engagement strategies with SmartVideo – not only to meet consumers’ digital expectations and differentiate their brands, but also to boost consumer satisfaction and drive measurable financial impact, a market need that is reflected in the Gartner report.”
