Nowadays, companies must seamlessly integrate digital channels and capabilities to strengthen customer relationships and meet their rising expectations. Providing an impeccable customer experience and personalised services are only the starting points.
As companies retool their customer engagement models, the commercial functions of marketing, sales and pricing are becoming more sophisticated. Tech-empowered marketing helps identify the right price and offering, anticipating the needs of the customers across multiple digital channels.
Human and digital channels and capabilities are blurring and converging. For example, in the retail industry, on-line chats or chatbots, digitally enhances shop-floors assistants and store employees posting on social media, can all engage with customers in real time.
Digitalisation also offers fresh opportunities to improve operating models. The combination of data sensors, computing power, mobility will allow numerous business processes to be automated within the next few years.
The greatest potential opportunities lie beyond adopting new technologies or improving processes. They involve deep transformational change from traditional transaction-based business models to customer-centric business models and marketing advances in pricing and sales.
Guiding companies through strategic change and transformation is our specialty, whether the change involves full scale transformation of all commercial functions, or making single-function advances in marketing, sales and pricing.
