Business Platformization with Infobip
Gone are the days when the customer experience (CX) was limited to face-to-face interactions with a company’s employees or through phone calls or written correspondence. According to Forrester’s report, “Redefining Human and Automated Engagement – How APAC Consumers Have Impacted The CX Agenda,” consumers’ preferences vary widely on how they contact companies and organizations. Phone and online live chat interactions were the top two preferred touchpoints across all support scenarios, especially in mainland China, Malaysia, the Philippines, South Korea, and Vietnam.
Digital customer experiences are necessary for customers to interact with a company or brand online. Thanks to e-commerce and the growth of customer data, companies can customize their interactions and services with each consumer. Traditionally, however, a considerable investment in technology and resources is needed to collect, examine, and take appropriate action on customer data.
Building responsiveness and CX into your platform is challenging and should be an integral part of your service offering. But customers are sensitive to the CX they receive, and it’s easy to let service levels slip and lose customers. That’s why enterprises that succeed practice an end-to-end omnichannel customer experience strategy.
The importance of an omnichannel customer experience strategy
Companies need a seamless and consistent customer experience across all touchpoints and channels, including in-person, internet, social media, email, and phone interactions. Regardless of the channel being used, companies can adapt their interactions and products to the specific needs of customers – but only if they have access to rich customer data.
