How Digital Transformation and Customer Experience Work Together ATC

What is digital transformation and customer experience (CX)? It’s business-driven IT strategies for successful digital journeys. It’s omni-channel, collaboration platforms built for next-gen workforces and optimal CX. It’s agile, scalable IT infrastructures designed with visibility, analytics, and integrated security. It’s the future of communication and the key to enhancing the performance of your business. And it’s all within your reach.

Business leaders know the importance of a great customer experience. Without customers, there would be no business. That’s why it’s important to use technology to ensure satisfaction along every step of the customer journey.

Customer Experience Revealed

When it comes to digital transformation and corporate innovation, one of the top catalysts for change in companies is exploring how to better serve today’s digital customer. Customer experience refers to how a business engages with its customers at every point of their buying journey, from marketing to sales to customer service and everywhere in between. In large part, it’s the sum total of all interactions a customer has with your brand.

At every customer touchpoint, you can improve (or destroy) how your customers feel about you. So there are important decisions to make at each touchpoint, and those decisions influence how successful your business will be as a result. A prime example of one way businesses are working to improve CX is with a new generation of contact centers. The fact of the matter is, legacy contact centers are unable to support evolving customer needs. It’s why many leaders are relying on digital transformation to adapt their business to suit the needs of their customers.

Digital Transformation Unleashed

Digital transformation is the integration of digital technology into all areas of a business, fundamentally changing how you operate and deliver value to customers. It’s also a cultural change that requires organizations to continually challenge the status quo, experiment, and get comfortable with failure. This may sound scary, but never fear. It’s the path to a brighter future.

Digital transformation projects often get stuck in the pilot stage because leaders are wary of replacing legacy systems. This hesitation is mostly due to existing investments, knowledge gaps, competing priorities, and a lack of resources. There is no longer any time to wait. A digital technology plan must be tightly integrated with core business goals and strategic objectives. Technologies change rapidly, and customer demands evolve regularly. Advancing your tech is necessary to save your business. 

If Technology is the Modern-Day Superhero…

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are quickly becoming a vital part of enhancing modern-day business operations. Thousands of organizations now use fully autonomous artificial intelligence in cybersecurity, marketing, sales, customer service, and other key areas of business. To undergo true digital transformation, business leaders are realizing they must come to terms with the idea of human and machine working together collaboratively to improve the overall performance of an organization.

And Digital Transformation and CX Are the Superpowers…

As mentioned previously, one way digital transformation and customer experience are working together to enhance business performance is with an intelligent cloud contact center. Intelligent cloud contact centers help businesses manage CX across phone, email, text, chat, and social media. They offer advanced functionality that goes beyond inbound and outbound calls: They offer the future.

While many contact centers remain on-premise, the lifespan of these systems is quickly fading as the market shifts toward cloud contact centers. As you add more support channels, an intelligent cloud contact center helps you stay on top of every customer request and optimize operational productivity for your business. It allows you to unlock customer insights and intelligence that reside in various systems across your organization to consistently provide extraordinary experiences your customers will love.

That Must Mean Your Fortress (Contact Center) is in the Cloud

Your contact center is the heart of your operation. It needs to be conditioned to give your business peak performance. The work requires it, and customers demand it. Outdated equipment, connections, and systems just won’t do if you’re trying to get ahead.

Cloud technology provides the flexibility to optimize your workloads through public, private, hybrid, and multi-cloud options. The cloud fuels growth and powers other digital transformation solutions and tools like AI, big data, and machine learning. Legacy networks can’t keep up with today’s intensive workloads and vast remote workforce.

With help from an IT consulting firm focusing on digital transformation, you can deliver upgraded customer experiences with a collaborative contact center to enhance the overall performance of your business.
