The moment clients realize that revisions are not an all-you-can-eat buffet, suddenly they realize they are not hungry.

Web chat is becoming the primary customer contact channel in customer relationship management (CRM), and Question/Answer/Lookup (QAL) is the dominant communication pattern in CRM agent-to-customer chat. Text-based web chat for QAL has two main usability problems. Chat transcripts between agents and customers are not tightly integrated into agent-side applications, requiring customer service agents to re-enter customer typed data. Also, sensitive information posted in chat sessions in plain text raises security concerns. The addition of web form widgets to web chat not only solves both of these problems but also adds new usability benefits to QAL. Forms can be defined beforehand or, more flexibly, dynamically composed. Two preliminary user studies were conducted. An agent-side study showed that adding inline forms to web chat decreased overall QAL completion time by 47 percent and increased QAL accuracy by removing all potential human errors. A customer-side study showed that web chat with inline forms is intuitive to customers.

Intrabody communication (IBC) is a wireless communications technology that
uses a person's body as the transmission medium for imperceptible electrical
signals. Because communication is limited to the vicinity of a person's body,
ambiguities arising from communication between personal devices and
environmental devices when multiple people are present can, in theory, be
solved simply. Intrabody communication also potentially allows data to be
transferred when a person touches an IBC-enabled device. We have designed and
constructed an intrabody communication system, modeled after Zimmerman's
original design, and extended it to operate up to 38.4Kbps and to calculate
signal strength. In this paper, we present quantitative measurements of data
error rates and signal strength while varying hand distance to transceiver
plate, electrode location on the body, touch plate size and shape, and several
other factors. We find that plate size and shape have only minor effects, but
that the distance to plate and the coupling mechanism significantly effect
signal strength. We also find that portable devices, with poor ground coupling,
suffer more significant signal attenuation. Our goal is to promote design
guidelines for this technology and identify the best contexts for its effective
