Understanding that communication plays an integral role in our everyday lives aids in creating and executing on effective management strategies. Not only within a company, but this also is reflected in the way an organization communicates and interacts with their consumers and customers. Communication truly lays the foundation for any relationship. From there, trust is built, loyalty is developed, and other positives are able to stem, grow, and compound. Given the proper attention and ‘nutrition’, as it were. Internal and external communication practices are vital to a smooth business operation. External communication, though, is particularly important. Especially in the modern day ruled by digital content and creative marketing gurus. As such, interactive communications have become a major player in the world of business communications.
The past two years have marked an unprecedented acceleration into the digital era. While the transformation into a digital era has been coming and expected for decades, this specific acceleration was a direct result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. With most businesses shifting to a digital and remote operation model nearly overnight, and many other workers leaving their employees to pursue their own ventures, the economy was launched into a digital space in the blink of an eye. Communication has always been a fundamental aspect of building customer relationships. However, in the past, there has nearly always been an aspect of face-to-face communication between businesses and their customers. In a digital economy, this is hardly the case. Yet, even without any face-to-face interactions, communication remains a top priority for both businesses and customers. This is why finding solutions for digital communications, real-time communication, is so vital.
We all want to simplify our daily tasks. Why would anyone want to take 12 steps and 30 minutes to complete a task when there is a way to do it in 3 steps and 5 minutes? We wouldn’t, it just wouldn’t make sense to do it that way.

According to Jingle Belle, Director of Elf Operations, “Every year, our volume of correspondence increases seemingly exponentially. As an organization that serves literally the entire planet, we’ve never been able to keep up with our correspondence the way we’d like. But now the children of the world are able to contact us through so many different channels, and they expect personalized responses and a great customer experience from us. We realized we need a customer communications management solution.”
Imagine you’re tasked with getting a week’s worth of water from a well. Take a small bucket and you’ll get some of the water you need but have to go back again multiple times. Take a large bucket and you’ll get it all in one fell swoop and call the job done.
We've noticed some of our fellow DOCCM vendors and even a few analysts have been using the term "interactive" (with respect to customer communication management) to mean different things at different times.
