While it is data, integration and business logic that represent the structural pillars for personalizing and triggering communications that organizations need to create and deliver, content serves as the foundation of customer communications. Research analysts from Forrester find that by knowing what to say and how to say it with personalized content is a critical component to driving customer experience-related revenue.
Have you ever thought about how much correspondence you really need to manage? Think about it: every memo your staff sends—emails and printed letters, document that gets shared with customers, colleagues, and partners—these are all components of an array correspondence that you need to read, delete or respond to in some fashion. Now consider that anything populated with content that moves your business along can benefit from better, more transparent systems. Every piece is important and it all needs to be managed.
In the customer communications management (CCM) industry, innovators are scrambling to achieve business agility and to streamline operational efficiency. CCM vendors with content services-based cloud solutions are well positioned as traditional vendors of CCM applications lack the agility to compete with new business and pricing models entering into the marketplace.
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.
Over the past year, we have seen a surge in interest from firms looking to move customer communications management (CCM) to the cloud. As you might guess, these companies are looking to increase efficiency and reduce capital and operating costs. But for business leaders, just because the technology exists does not provide enough of a reason to push a massive migration.
