Don't your customers deserve your best?

Let’s face it. We are spoiled by the amount of information and advice available on the internet thought blogs, wikies and communities. We’re also used to very easy-to-use mobile apps, the best user experience, products and services at the best price as well. And, we’ve become used to the “share” economy experience such as Uber or Lyft. So, when you’re on the other end delivering this information and service to your customers – or your citizens (your “customers”) if you’re in a government position – don’t you want to provide them the best as well?

Remarkable and exceptional
Remember, every customer considers themselves to be a remarkable and exceptional person who deserves the best at all times and from any place.

In parallel, the explosion of local, innovative startups able to address niche markets and customer expectations have increased competition. Each enterprise and public entity must evolve the way they engage with their customers, citizens, suppliers or partners.

Three important trends have changed the way people engage:
1. Technology evolution: Mobility, cloud computing, connected objects, analytic and artificial intelligence
2. Evolving commercial models: Sharing economy, subscription model, and business-enabled model
3. User refocus: Simple ergonomics, so-called de-professionalization, easy access and more

To remain competitive it is crucial, although easy, to digitally engage with potential customers in a different and user-friendly way, to provide the best on-line and on-premises services and to continue to digitally keep in contact with them afterwards to increase loyalty.
