Season 1 has come to an end, and what a journey it has been! On this final episode of the CXYZ podcast, we want to share with you some of our biggest insights and takeaways from this season of enlightening interviews with industry experts and thought leaders from all sorts of different industries.
Customer Experience is being given more importance across industries, and this is reflected in changing titles and responsibilities of CX leaders. Data analytics is also playing more of a role in solving customer problems, and this is a result of companies recognizing that customer experience is, and should be, a holistic function of the business. AI is another interesting topic that has resurfaced in our interview. It has huge potential to improve customer experiences and provide complementary services to human customer service, but we predict that AI probably won't be stealing all your jobs anytime soon.
As we close out this year, we want to thank you for your continued support of our podcast. We're thrilled to announce that we will be continuing with a second season of the CXYZ Podcast in 2018, so be on the lookout for that, as well as the CX Summit happening on April 12. Thank you once again for being wonderful listeners, and happy holidays!

[4:42] Bryce still believes that there are more companies to which customer service is an afterthought, rather than a priority.

[9:05] There's no one-size-fits-all strategy.
