5 biggest gaps in customer service for mid-size companies

Companies like Amazon and Uber have set the standard for customer service, which means that keeping up with customer expectations can be tough. Mid-size companies—with between 100 and 1,000 employees—grow their customer service teams faster and use more advanced tools than small businesses.

Whether it’s an overflowing queue, a lack of accessible channels, or chaos when it comes to the flow of information, mid-size businesses have their work cut out for them.
