Customer Experience Management

Build stronger, longer-lasting customer relationships by delivering a seamless omnichannel retail customer experience


Reimagining the retail customer experience

The retail customer experience is, in a word, expansive, spanning numerous touch points and channels, both digital and physical. Customers have come to expect well-designed, end-to-end journeys that enable them to seamlessly transition from online to in-person and back again, as well as personalized interactions and memorable experiences that transcend a single transaction. With competitive differentiation, long-term loyalty, and growth opportunities on the line, retailers must invest in innovative solutions that enable them to create unified, omnichannel experiences that consistently exceed customer expectations.

Enhancing experiences, one customer at a time

In order to create and implement customer engagement strategies that drive satisfaction, loyalty, and advocacy, retailers require a solid customer experience management platform.

Such a platform should enable retailers to:

  • Create a uniform look and feel across all channels for a consistent brand experience
  • Build detailed customer profiles that include purchase history, personal preferences, wish lists, and more
  • Gain a 360-degree view of the customer across all channels and interactions
  • Leverage customer data and advanced analytics for more targeted marketing campaigns, personalized product recommendations, and meaningful employee interactions
  • Deliver “always on” customer service using a combination of live agents, artificially intelligent chatbots, and self-service functionality
  • Ensure products are in the right place at the right time by gaining real-time inventory visibility, generating accurate demand forecasts, and automating replenishment
  • Provide frictionless payment options, including contactless checkout and mobile POS
  • Offer flexible fulfillment options, including BOPIS and BOPAC, with complete visibility into order status and location
  • Design custom applications that enhance the customer experience and incentivize action
  • Introduce emerging technology, such as AI, AR, and VR, to create innovative in-store installations
