Let’s start with two surprising statistics:
- Slow response is the #1 deal-breaker: In a recent survey of 1,000 B2B decision makers, lack of speed in interactions with their suppliers emerged as the number-one pain point (mentioned twice as often as price.)
- Today’s B2B customers prefer instant DIY tools: Digital solutions loom large in executives’ thinking as a way to make routine tasks more efficient. Some 86 percent of respondents said they prefer using self service tools for tasks like reordering, rather than talking to a sales representative.
Smartly leveraging all your data and content assets to optimize your customer service ecosystem
To drive better engagement and truly transform customer experience (CX), it’s critical to make as much helpful—and current—data-driven information available. (Ideally, in real time.)
Customers will be happy to interact with premium content that you can deliver via self-service such as video presentations and training.
Of course this means gaining secure and controlled visibility and access into enterprise solutions that live outside the traditional realm of Customer Service platforms.
