Why is service personalisation so important?
Forbes has shared information from a report with 1500 participants in US, in which of 79% of respondents indicated that personalised service is more important that personalised marketing. In a Gartner webinar, there was discussion raised about the personalisation topic in light of Artificial Intelligence (AI) with the results that by 2019 81% of marketing leaders see that they compete based on Customer Experience (CX), not price or product. Customers with personalised customer experience will return to the company and buy more.
By knowing this impact on your business, would you like to start to personalise your service?
The intelligence behind personalisation in customer service
Imagine you as a Customer Service Representative picking up the next call. You could greet the customer by her/his name, could see the info about customer latest purchases (with items and price) and previous feelings during interactions with your company. You know the customer journey and can understand how best to service them.
