For the fourth edition of our “State of Service” report, Salesforce Research surveyed global customer service professionals to determine:
- How customer service standards continue to change in the midst of crisis
- Which strategies, tactics, and technologies service organizations are turning to in the new normal
- How service organizations are navigating abrupt changes in their work environment
- The impact and trajectory of field service during a time of social distancing
Data in this report is from a double-blind survey conducted from August 21 through September 26, 2020, that generated 7,095 responses from full-time customer service professionals across 33 countries and six continents. Respondents are third-party panelists (not limited to Salesforce customers). See page 47 for further survey demographics.
Due to rounding, not all percentage totals in this report equal 100%. All comparison calculations are made from exact numbers (not rounded numbers).
