Mayday – Customer Service, Amazon Style

The ad for Amazon’s new Kindle Fire HDX range of tablets states the new Mayday service as being revolutionary; And in a way it is.

The fact that a customer service rep in a video frame pops up at the touch of button, for free, is testament that Amazon understands the fundamental requirement of a business to succeed in the tech market: Giving their customers the confidence that if and when they trip up using new technology someone is just a reliable click away ready to help.

Today’s technology moves so fast that only the biggest technophiles probably feel as though they can tackle any new features presented to them; Most consumers however feel they are playing catch up most of the time and feel the strain of picking up a new piece of technology and instantly being able to use it effectively. And that’s where Amazon wins.
