As you sharpen your focus on adopting new technologies with the promise of reaching more customers, the basic customer communications management (CCM) principles remain the same: the content you create as a business entity needs to speak directly and meaningfully to your customers.
Forrester Research and other firms have found that delivering a customer experience (CX) with ease, effectiveness, and emotion drives higher revenues and profitability versus industry peers. That explains why CX has gotten a lot of attention (or at least lip service) from C-suite executives and board members.
ROCKVILLE, Maryland, USA — Top Down Systems Corporation (“Topdown”), a leading developer of customer communication management (CCM) software applications, and Infosys, Ltd. (“Infosys”), a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting, announced today that they are teaming up to provide 100% cloud-based CCM solutions which will help companies across the globe accelerate their digital transformation efforts.
Over the past few years, the fundamental responsibilities of the chief marketing officer (CMO) have gradually evolved into a role requiring more technical prowess. In fact, a new job category, that of chief marketing technologist, has emerged as a typically common role within marketing departments. As prospects and customers continue to engage over digital channels, CMOs with technical expertise will be in greater demand as the qualification to manage modern enterprise marketing requires merging technology with marketing.
Measuring customer experience (CX) can be murky and filled with anecdotal, qualitative information. However, measuring the effectiveness of a CX strategy can be very straightforward. It involves setting goals and performing a quantitative analysis of the results.
We have been writing about the convergence of customer communications management (CCM) and digital customer experience (CX) management technologies for over four years. We researched with Forrester, produced an ebook, and authored a white paper, all digging deeper into the detailed why’s and how’s of the topic.. We were way ahead of the curve then, and still are now.
