Why Read This Report

Wells Fargo was a pioneer in the use of online chat in 2002. While that initial move into live help met with mixed results, the desire on the team's part to inject human assistance into the process of shopping online for lending products never faded. In 2008, Wells Fargo made a second attempt to leverage online chat to drive sales, and happily, this time the results have been crystal clear. High customer satisfaction scores and a double-digit increase in converted shoppers have shown the value once and for all of this technology.
