Customers expect a lot these days from companies that they choose to do business with. With more competition in the market than ever before, a 24-hour news cycle and devices glued to the palms of almost every adult (and many children!) it’s no wonder that not only the demand for great customer service is so high, but the demand for the avenues that this customer service can be accessed from has also increased.
Brand loyalty is at an all-time low, millennials are responsible for the near extinction of fabric softener manufacturers and the globalization of the consumer marketplace means that fantastic customer service is more important now more than ever before.
This is why the Customer Experience Management (CXM) sector is currently in the spotlight. One of the key elements to customer retention and satisfaction is to resolve issues quickly and consistently. Now that information is available everywhere from over the phone to online, face to face at a counter and even at bus stops – it’s vital in this ‘information age’ to have a single source of truth – the one, all knowing bible of constantly up-to-date facts that customer service professionals and tech-savvy customers can refer to in order to get instant answers. If knowledge is stored in multiple locations and updated in some instances but not others, inconsistencies arise and so does the lack of trust in your customer service – and your brand.
