INFOBIP’s commissioned study to understand how human and automated engagement has evolved revealed that 41 per cent of surveyed Malaysians fall into the ‘Affluent Hybrid-Shoppers’ persona and consumers within this persona are comfortable switching between digital and human touchpoints.

The study, prepared by Forrester Consulting, seeks to highlight whether the dominance of digital transformation has given rise to self-service and automated support or are customers still expecting real-time personalised services and interactions from live human agents, Infobip said in a statement today.

“This indicates a rather balanced preference by Malaysians when it comes to receiving customer support from brands, posing an opportunity for brands to better strategise their play of hybrid customers experience to meet the needs of customers today,” it said.
