Published By: DataStax     Published Date: Mar 10, 2017
Banks are at an inflection point. According to a recent research by Viacom, 1 in every 3 U.S. consumers are open to switching banks in the next 90 days.

However, this is no easy task as complexity increases when retail banks engage their customers across multiple channels and financial products. Gaining visibility into every customer interaction, across your business silos, and with every engagement channel is critical to making the right decisions to deliver amazing customer experiences. This white paper examines the challenges Financial Services Institutions (FSIs) face when building a 360° view of the customer to transform their customer experience and how to overcome them.

Using AI for Better Self-Service

Published By: Zendesk Ltd     Published Date: Sep 11, 2018
Customers have caught on that support interactions are getting better. When they reach out, they’ve come to expect an instant response that says “we’re here for you”. When they want information, it’s expected to be accurate, up-to-date, and easily accessible. Essentially, they come to expect efficiency during support interactions. As a result, businesses are becoming more cognizant of their self- service offerings. Customers want to be left feeling empowered; it’s even better when they can do so on their own. Self-service saves time for agents, cuts down on organizational costs, and leaves the customer with a positive outlook of a brand. This eBook delves into how AI can enhance your customer self-service offerings with automatically-generated knowledge bases, content cues for your service agents, and chatbots.

A Maturity Model for Delivering Proactive Customer Service

Published By: ServiceNow     Published Date: Feb 24, 2017
At the highest level of organizations, a new management directive has emerged to meet the changed nature of customer demands and interactions as well as the need to differentiate within the market. This directive has one goal: providing a differentiated customer service experience. As products become increasingly commoditized, organizations can set themselves apart from their competitors by providing a unique customer service experience that creates a "relationship" based on intangible benefits that their customers will find hard to give up. While this vision is theoretically sound, it requires a significant tactical shift in business thinking and processes. The modern customer's habits and service requirements have changed radically. Meeting these needs challenges many historically held beliefs and practices regarding the customer and modes of interaction.

Forrester Data Refinement: Facilitating the data-driven organization

Published By: IBM     Published Date: May 16, 2016
The data-driven organization is the new benchmark for success. Firms that harness data to dictate strategic and tactical decisions companywide make more informed business plans, better optimize operations, improve customer interactions, and provide competitive edge. To achieve these benefits, organizations increasingly see data refinement - transforming raw data from various sources into relevant and actionable information and delivering it through self - service access to any user who needs it - as the path toward success by helping break though immature processes and legacy systems. However, data refinement only functions as well as the strategies and approaches behind it. Organizations that do not understand the right way to embrace refinement will fail to catch up to competitors that have mastered the correct approach.
