Customers expect more from brands when it comes to convenience, resolution times, and agent expertise. Evolving customer preferences are tightly linked to innovations in digital technology, and brands must embrace both in order to keep pace with heightened expectations. The good news is that brands that can deliver on expectations are rewarded with higher rates of customer retention and loyalty.
The Microsoft 2017 State of Global Customer Service survey polled 5,000 people from Brazil, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. We continue to find commonalities along with distinct differences between locals. And though people in all age groups are embracing new digital trends, millennials especially are shaping the way brands need to think about the future of customer service engagement.
The global beauty company provides an exhilarating example of the power of context-driven commerce. When customers can rely on brands to achieve the outcomes that are important to them, brand owners can shift their focus from nonstop customer acquisition to long-term customer engagement.
The Sitecore Experience Platform and the underlying Sitecore Experience Database are foundation technologies for IT organizations wanting to implement context-driven commerce environments that function elegantly today and into the future. Sitecore puts an end to digital retailers’ obsession with cart abandonment, replacing it with opportunities to delight customers with personal, meaningful commerce offers.
Digital technologies and increasing customer engagement point traditional financial institutions towards a wonderful new world of an enhanced customer experience. Herded by a wave of regulatory ‘enablers’ - through the yin-yang regulations in the form of the GDPR and PSD2 - the industry landscape is ripe for transformation for those willing and able to embrace this new world: connected customer ecosystems beyond their own institutional walls. In doing this, this creates more comprehensive customer journeys - and ultimately, better quality customer experiences.
Technology offers the opportunity for brands to compete - and win - on a rising standard of customer service delivery. Changing cornerstones of engagement: consumers may seem like they stick with their service providers no matter what, but marketers can’t be complacent. To stop their valued customers adding services elsewhere, organizations need to fulfill a new set of standards.
Do you know your people as well as you know your customers? Your people’s expectations and the way they work is changing. Employees are more diverse, mobile and technologically-savvy than ever before. HR processes are changing from focusing on transactions to knowing and engaging people. Just as sales and marketing teams use data to develop actionable and informed insights about their customers, you need to do the same in HR to know your people. Everything, from attracting and keeping the best talent, to creating better workplace experiences and increasing employee engagement and productivity, depends on smarter decisions. These in turn rely on more actionable insights. These are only possible through accurate HR data and analytics. They are vital to address the people challenges you face, so you can make smarter decisions.

Digital transformation (DX) has progressed well beyond the abundant hype predicting it to where it is now an existential concern for many enterprises. We are at an inflection point as digital transformation efforts shift from "project" or "initiative" status to strategic business imperatives. Growing enterprises,
regardless of age or industry, are striving to become "digital native" in the way their executives and employees think, what they produce, and how they operate. IDC predicts that by 2021, at least 50% of global GDP will be digitized, with growth in every industry driven by digitally enhanced offerings, operations, and relationships, and that by 2020, investors will use platform/ecosystem, data value, and customer engagement metrics as valuation factors for all enterprises.

Account-based strategy is the coordination of highly valuable, personalized experiences across all functions that impact the customer to drive engagement and conversion at a targeted set of accounts.
The adoption of account-based strategy has accelerated in the last few years, with a dramatic increase in the number of companies looking to implement this approach. This growth is driving demand to “start now,” particularly in marketing organizations, but account-based cannot be developed by the marketing department alone. The best account-based leaders begin by securing organization-wide commitment to the account-based strategy.

These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness.
