Overcoming the barriers to deliver enterprise social customer service

Ultimate Guide to Social Customer Service & The RisksAny discussion on counting the cost of failure in customer service and the impact of social media is likely to start with a song! A very specific song, written by Dave Carroll (now legendary) called “United breaks guitars”.
