In late summer of 2010, we fielded a customer survey in order to find out the relative importance of the impending holiday shopping season and to discover what, if anything, customers did to actively prepare. We know from other research efforts that live chat plays an important role during the season, but we wanted to know, operationally, what our customers did to optimize their implementations and staff. This whitepaper marks the second year of our attempt to uncover "from-the-trenches" ideas about live chat tuning. While many of the results presented here are, indeed focused on live chat software, there are many others beyond the scope of this technology alone. For this reason, companies with or without live chat deployments may find the data useful.
