Digital Disruption Affecting the Customer Experience
Millennials, larger than the Baby Boomer generation, are shaping the customer experiences of today and have the highest expectations when it comes to customer service. Omnipresent across their social networks, connected 24x7 through multiple devices they demand instant and individualised experiences with relevant answers.
Customers expect a seamless multi-channel experience that gives them access whenever, wherever and however they choose to connect. When in the midst of a journey, they expect to continue with the process from their last contact point.
Big Data and analytics are transforming information delivery to create a holistic view of the customer experience with rich customer insights across the business enabling customer-centric organisations to know what the customer is thinking, at the time they are thinking it and often with predictive analytics, even before they have thought of it.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) is profoundly changing customer engagement strategies placing much more importance on self-service. Customers experience confusion and unhappiness when they are not set up for decision-making success translating into lost revenues. They are more informed and expect to be in charge of the experiences they receive and expect brands to proactively anticipate their needs, and provide self-service options that go far beyond a simple FAQ page.
The mobile workforce continues to grow with globalisation and democratisation of technology. By 2022, at least 1.87 billion employees will be working on the go or remotely, accessing information from any location. With cloud-based solutions, businesses are empowering the Millennial workers with a structured yet flexible working style. Businesses that are serious about attracting and retaining talent are building a digital infrastructure to equip employees with the right technologies to maximise their investments in human capital and remain competitive.
Technology today is now more advanced and affordable and businesses – large and small - can easily implement customer experience solutions easier and quicker than larger enterprises. A right mix of new technologies, processes and strategies can help businesses address the changing marketplace of consumer demands and needs.
If you don’t have a digital platform, you’re toast. By having a powerful omnichannel platform with AI-driven automation and self-service for customer experience, companies can proactively stem customer dissatisfaction and instead focus on innovation and customer intimacy.
