In KMWorld’s recently released ECM Best Practices report, Systemware’s Director of Solutions Delivery, Sean Furrh, outlined ​5 Essentials for a Modern Content Services Platform​ to manage your organization’s valuable information assets. In our previous blogs from this series, we covered: ​A Robust User Experience​, Deployment Flexibility, A Quick and Easy Migration Path, and Mitigating Risks by Satisfying Current and Future Compliance Requirements. In this, the last of the five essentials, we will take a deep dive into the all-important Customer Experience. 

“Customer experience is the new marketing battlefront” Chris Pemberton-Gartner

Customer Experience (CX) is a term that encompasses all aspects of a customer’s relationship and interaction with your brand from start to finish. A great product or service is just not enough. ​Customer experience is just that–the ​customer’s experience. ​The experience itself is not something a company can “manage,” the experience belongs to the customer. Companies may adopt a process-based approach to management, but in the end, the customer defines the experience. While ​customer service and support are all pieces of the big Customer Experience puzzle, the systems and services are, at their center, focused on the customer. ​It only takes one bad experience for a great partnership to abruptly end. A recent poll found that 54% of American consumers believe most companies need to improve their customer experiences. So what is the secret sauce to CX?

The “Customer-Obsessed” Culture

Organizations must be “customer-obsessed” putting the customer at the heart of all that they do including strategy, products, execution, brand value, touchpoints, input and feedback, services, and all experiences surrounding these essential moving parts within the organization.  As more and more data comes in, more and more attention must be paid as to how to manage the data to deliver the experiences customers expect. And customers expect a lot and those expectations grow as technology improves. Technology and processes are important and while the tech may drive the fundamental shifts in the market, it is the customer who defines the experience. Today’s customers expect always on, performance-based, integrated solutions, that deliver anytime, anywhere, on any device.

Delivering Excellent CX with the Cloud

Customers want to feel confident with the time and money they have invested in your business—and that is reflected in every single interaction you have with them, including digitally.  To deliver the very best customer experience, your business needs modern, compliant systems that are both reliable and fast—and that requires digital transformation. Information is a valuable asset, and it needs a safe and secure place to be managed and useful for your organization. Content services in the cloud can be that safe place. Cloud-driven content services solutions enable a more flexible way to manage content and can help your organization efficiently deliver differentiated products and services, simplify manual processes with workflows and automation, and provide an enhanced customer experience.
