customer experienceFor many kids it is the end of the school year. But before they can say, “no more teachers, no more books” they are given a list of books to read over the summer. For some kids, and their parents, this is a painful ask to think about reading over the summer. I was unlike most of my schoolmates as I read more than what was assigned to me over the summer. Do they still call kids bookworms if everything is an eBook?

In the spirit of summer reading lists, Genesys has compiled a list of customer experience eBooks.  Check these 10 eBooks for best practices for customer engagement, digital customer service, workforce optimization, customer journey mapping, omnichannel customer experience, and IVR self-service.

These may not replace your summer beach reads, but you can put them on your on an iPad and read them wherever your summer adventures take you.  From the CX advices, to the customer bill of rights, to journey mapping, to zombies, they pack both entertainment and education. Enjoy!
