How do you tie in a digital customer experience strategy with engagement channels? How do you maximise returns (degree of engagement and revenue) through a digital platform?
Digital Platform – The Way Ahead
Today, your business is interacting with and servicing customers on many digital channels. But what matters is the depth and width of services rendered with consistency and the speed of response. Digital natives who are either a big chunk of your customer base already or will be soon, expect quick response with adequate contextual relevance for any interaction initiated on any channel. So your business needs to approach every channel with the right mix of tools and strategies to ensure that every conversation contributes to the bottom-line.
A Unified Approach to Digital Engagement
The idea behind using a digital platform is that every channel you own offers engagement consistency and seamless customer service. So, whether your customers receive an email, look at your social account(s), or walk into your retail store and share their details, they will be able to know that they are communicating with your brand. To be seen as a trustworthy brand, your business needs to invest in designs around digital user experience, visual appeal and organisational hierarchy. Barriers such as siloed approach to channels, inadequate employee training or wrong communication tools can hinder or slow down this approach.
Talisma Digital Platform binds both technology and best practices into a powerful mix that not just delivers high business value but also ensures satisfied long-term customers through continuous engagement. Businesses can track and engage customers across communication channels with accuracy, measuring engagement effectiveness and collecting and acting on real-time feedback.

This means more scope for process innovation, improving staff efficiency and service desk agility.
