"Customer experience today is the worst it's ever been," said Gadi Shamia, chief executive officer & co-founder of Replicant. "Contact centers are facing an emerging business crisis with fewer agents, rising costs, unpredictable call volumes, and a nation stuck on hold.

"Serving our Members quickly and safely is our top priority at CAA. As we see more adverse weather events and continue to grow our Membership, our call volumes are growing as well," said Tanya Weigelt, director, Club Operations, CAA Club Group. "Replicant has handled thousands of daily service calls from start to resolution, allowing Associates to focus on assisting Members with more complex transactions and high-stress situations. This targeted service delivery has helped us to make sure that all of our Members receive the care and support they expect in their time of need."
