That translates to more than 205 billion emails sent and received per day. Needless to say, email remains a primary mode of communication across the globe. The inherent risks of email use, such as misunderstandings, misdirected deliveries and lost translations, cannot be understated. Email also remains as a critical component in a company's communications strategy. Where does the rubber meet the road? Customer service professionals are walking brand ambassadors.
