Technology not only impacts the products or services being produced, but also the way consumers prefer to use them. Consumer expectations are extremely high in the current market, and organizations are striving to digitize themselves without becoming faceless. This expectation holds true in every aspect of the engagement process. For example, most customers want a frictionless experience while browsing for a particular product, direct access to a customer service representative in the event of a question, and real-time tracking once an order is placed. Altogether, consumers have grown to expect best-in-class user experience from online, mobile, and even off-line interactions.
Organizations that deliver on these expectations will succeed, while others who simply cannot keep up will fail. Customers have gotten used to Amazon-like experience and they expect the same from other brands. This is where businesses must transform their processes to deliver the ‘exceptional customer experience’ promise by establishing and executing digital transformation. Speed and agility is critical to stay ahead of the competition. You need to establish the digital skills and capabilities to move your company to this state quickly.
