One of the key tenets of our Modern Marketing Manifesto is that improving the customer experience must be the relentless focus of modern marketing.
It states that the customer experience is about “customer centricity as evidenced by the service or product that we deliver across channels. It is about respecting the power and importance of great design”.
Digital technologies present a great opportunity for businesses to create personalised customer experiences. However, the proliferation of consumer touch points also makes it increasingly difficult to come up with a coherent strategy across different channels.
To find out more about these challenges, I spoke to Accenture Interactive EMEA managing director Anatoly Roytman.
And to find out more about creating seamless multichannel customer experiences, come to Econsultancy’s JUMP event on October 9. Now in its fourth year, JUMP will be attended by more than 1,200 senior client-side marketers. This year it forms part of our week-long Festival of Marketing extravaganza.
Why is customer experience seen as more important in the digital age?
Customer experience has always been important. What’s changed is the ability to deliver consistent and relevant customer experiences at scale and across channels.
In today’s digital age, customers expect multichannel experiences where they can move seamlessly between channels and devices how and when they want. Even though the needs of each customer are different, they are all looking for the best price, the easiest buying experience and personalised service.
And they expect to see the same price, same description and same brand as they move between channels.
