Talisma Adds Value Across the Customer Lifecycle
Consider the typical lifecycle stages of your customer: acquisition, servicing, retention and upsizing. You need to have a comprehensive CEM framework to convey value right from the day a prospect hears about your brand. When your financial institution is in the process of acquiring customers, it needs to convey value and a desire for engagement on a customer’s preferred medium. During the servicing phase, your financial institution needs to strengthen the relationship by meeting service expectations. During retention, your brand will have to come up with unique products and appealing service propositions. During upsizing, you will have to devise ways to take the relationship to the next level.
