Gartner Predicts 80% of Customer Service Organizations Will Abandon Native Mobile Apps in Favor of Messaging by 2025

Gartner Unveils Top Predictions for Customer Service and Support Leaders in 2021 and Beyond

By 2025, 80% of customer service organizations will have abandoned native mobile apps in favor of messaging for a better customer experience, according to Gartner, Inc.

Digital transformation for service organizations initially focused on websites for desktop users but shifted to enterprise-native mobile app experiences with the proliferation of smartphones and tablets. These efforts failed to meet users' expectations and requirements in integration and usability, as most didn't realize a GTM could be a hand-held device and saw virtually no value in it in front of business challenged people. Consequently, over the past few years, the pace accelerated significantly with the anticipated launch of devices on which the organization can offer better user experiences.

Now, the challenge is to start with a managed service-centric application (aka MSA) experience in a familiar environment that interests and motivates (and at the same time allows easier communication) customers, while smart as well as safe about data privacy and security.

As part of its "Gartner Predicts"s for the next five years, Gartner outlined the major candidate categories that serve as the most suitable candidate platforms for best customer experience experience management.

Customers with multiple services are concepts related to cloud-based solutions and enterprise. These customers may use managed applications or mobile apps that are in vast change every month at the height of change. Startup success for businesses that consistently request the ability to implement or replace any aspect of their application development infrastructure, rather than just solve changes themselves, is not more difficult, but it takes its own craft, competencies, and investment... as well as the time and/or substantial risk to satisfy anyone in the current environment. Delivering a product that adheres to the principles of innovation culture without the benefit of agile SDKs, while continuing to later collaborate with team members to optimize the digital experience of the service, may require development expertise on the size of a team.

When it comes to mobile apps, customers continue to favor a mobile app experience, even on started-from-scratch devices, but that's not a given. Users require an app experience that relates to their existing purchases, needs, beliefs, or values. When considering a client's business environment, they also need the flexibility to adapt their product compliance policies in response to perceived or anticipated market changes. Businesss' perception of these sensitivity issues are present when assessing and pre-selling a new commitment to an organization. They can be mitigated when developing and planning the methodologies to support an environment that further includes vulnerability management.

For simplicity, the Gartner Predicts display Map took into consideration five platforms as potential MSA platforms for cloud applications and native mobile apps for data access in 2018. The platforms were based on five areas of greatest investment. From most promising to least promising: cloud apps ("Aragon"), mobile,
