After you have implemented digital omnichannel, look back at your goals and benchmarks in Chapter 4.
Sales and marketing goals, along with associated pipeline and revenue, are most likely to be found and reported through your CRM. A proper integration between your CRM and customer engagement platform, paired with the use of channel-specific UTMs in referral links, reveals the full picture of how your omnichannel solution impacted your sales and marketing goals including:
- Revenue, AUM, Pipeline, MQLs, Leads: How much of these metrics were generated by the customer service team? Which engagement channels seem to be the best lead or revenue generators?
- Share of Wallet: Have you been able to identify upsell and cross-sell opportunities with existing customers using the digital omnichannel solution?
- Customer Churn: Has your customer churn rate reduced? Are customers who engage with you on one or more channel at a lower risk of churning?
Customer success metrics should be readily available to define, track, and measure right in your customer engagement platform. Your omnichannel solution should offer extensive reporting, making it easy to see how far you’ve come. These should include:
- Conversational Conversions: You should be able to define and track conversation conversions in your customer engagement Ask yourself: Did your conversion rate on these channels from conversations to a sale, demo, or other key milestone increase?
- Customer Satisfaction: You should be able to set up post-chat surveys across all channels to measure Ask yourself: Did your CSAT improve? How does CSAT compare between channels? How does bot CSAT compare to agent CSAT

- Handle Time: Your handle time doesn’t immediately paint a picture of “good” or “bad” service without further A long handle time could mean a frustrating experience, or a highly personalized, pleasant one for the customer. Handle times might also differ across channels, such as live chat vs. video chat. Ask yourself: Has your handle time gone down? And how does that relate to customer satisfaction?
- Time in Motion: Ask yourself: Has the amount of time your customers spend getting transferred increased or decreased? With intelligent routing, you can expect your time in motion to
- Chatbot Success Rate. Ask yourself: Have your chatbots been able to handle and resolve more queries on their own, now that they have been deployed across all channels and equipped with KB and other responses?
- Agent Churn Rate and Morale: Every growing or mature customer service center should have the means to evaluate agent retention and satisfaction. Ask yourself: Did your agent churn rate decrease and agent morale scores increase? When talking to your agents, do they seem happier doing their jobs?
