The Product Lifecycle

I think information technology (IT) is highly instrumental to massive improvement. Information technology has revolutionized the way organizations conduct business. Several years ago, consumers became accustomed to experiencing a humanistic personality in-person as well as on the telephone, this form of interaction was widely known as customer service. However; the consumer demand for most businesses was far greater than the services organizations could provide. The number of calls an organization would receive on average outweighed the number of staff members that were able to tend to those calls. In essence, organizations desired to spend more time with consumers face to face and less time answering phone calls. IT has allowed organizations to integrate automated phone systems that would answer a plethora of consumer concerns. Automated phone systems are extremely detailed in nature in which case a consumer may not have to speak to an actual representative of the company because their questions, concerns or business dealings were handled via the automated system. For example, the DMV, provides a wide array of information that would enable an individual to log on to the company's website and renew and register a vehicle, and print out forms in the privacy of your own home without standing in a long line. This is just generalized example that comes to mind, however; below you will find a detailed response to your question.
