Let us take example of Salesforce Customer platform by www.force.com, the number One leader in Customer services. BTW the Lodha developers use this platform too.

The computer monitor flashes all your Facebook posts, Twitter Tweets and other online information in front of him. The software also suggests how should the Sale person deal with you based on your online calculated temperament and personality.
