Customer Experience

Reinvent Customer Relationship Management to Deliver Connected Customer Experiences

Build stronger relationships with your customers by engaging them at every point in their journey.

Customer Experience is a Never-Ending Cycle

To succeed today and in the future, you need to build lasting relationships with your customers. And that’s not always an easy prospect. Customers expect a lot these days, and you can only meet those expectations by providing a highly contextual, personalized experience – across every channel and on every device.

It doesn’t matter where your customers are in their journey. At each step of the way, you need to leverage real-time customer and industry data to ensure that their experience is always personal and relevant to that particular moment.

Four Global Trends Driving Change

What do businesses need to do in order to meet these new customer expectations? There are four major trends shaping customer experience in the digital era:

  1. The need for a single view of the customer so they can be placed at the heart of the business.
  2. A shift from a focus on selling products to selling services.
  3. The need to connect front- and back-office in order to offer a truly holistic customer experience.
  4. Building customers’ trust that you will use their data responsibly.

It’s not easy to manage change at this scale with outdated CRM technology.

Next-Generation CRM

Next-generation CRM is not about automation and efficiency. It’s about intelligent engagement and effectiveness. It’s about creating a series of moments which feel genuine and engender trust.

Alex Atzberger, President, SAP Customer Experience

It’s Time for Fourth-Generation CRM

Customer expectations are impacting the requirements for CRM software. To meet the needs of the digital economy, customers expect:

Data privacy: Customers don’t want their data used without their knowledge. While artificial intelligence allows for powerful analytics of customer data, at the same time it raises the stakes around data privacy. Once consumers lose faith that a business will protect their sensitive data and handle it responsibly, all trust is gone.

Treat people like people. Customers don’t want to be treated like a sales opportunity. They want businesses to know their preferences, anticipate their needs and act accordingly.

Connected experiences.  Given all the choices, channels, and options, customers want a consistently great experience every time.
