Customer experience as we know it today has an entirely new definition of frontline staff facing very high demands and expectations for customers and their constantly changing requirements.
Customers are always on the lookout for instant solutions, 24×7 availability, and access to a wide range of products and services through digital and mobile channels. It doesn’t matter what you are selling. At the end of the day, you are selling an experience.
What is more surprising is that this is just the tip of an iceberg. There is more that can be expected from what is being called the next generation customer.
Enterprises have a unidirectional line of thinking about the “generational divide” and most are at a huge risk of missing out on the paradigm shift of customer expectations. Next generation customers are not just going to buy products. They are the new pathfinders making brands aware of the changing expectations and how their market is transitioning.
Previously, customer loyalty to a particular brand was most important. Going forward, brands have to show that their loyalty to their customers is earned and worth the money spent. This phenomenon is clearly evident among millennials and slowly other customer demographics have started to show signs of it too.
How does a brand deliver a good customer experience? The answer lies in two words: Digital Transformation.
Companies who make the effort to develop a strong digital infrastructure will be able to provide an exceptional experience for their customers, and in turn, will create a trustworthy brand that compels loyalty.
