The Power of Empathy in Customer Experience 

Our clients have seen firsthand how workplace simulations better prepare their agents for real-world situations. While expertise is essential, empathy is simply crucial for positive customer interactions, especially in industries such as insurance or healthcare.  

According to a survey conducted by Harvard Business Review, while 72% of CX executives believe they understand their customers, only 35% of customers feel that brands genuinely understand them. This gap in perceived empathy can impact customer satisfaction and trust​. 

Teaching empathy helps agents communicate effectively and fosters mutual understanding. Data-driven AI coaching can enhance these soft skills at a faster pace, ensuring your team is ready for challenging scenarios and difficult conversations. Emphasizing empathy through AI coaching leads to better solutions and more satisfied customers. 

AI Coaching Goes Beyond Call Fundamentals 

While many programs can assess keyword use and system navigation efficiency, few go beyond basic call fundamentals. AI coaching platforms, however, offer deeper insights into agent performance and are able to enhance empathy training through targeted exercises. 

By identifying and analyzing aspects such as the use of keywords or the sentiment, SymTrain helps refine the right soft skills for exceptional customer service.
