Digital Transformation: 4 Top Examples of Driving Engaging Customer Engagement across Industries

McKinsey's Global Survey on external engagement found that senior executives recognized the need to engage stakeholders and were increasingly focused on their companies’ efforts in this area. Nearly 60 percent of respondents claimed that customer engagement ranks among their top three priorities.

With the pandemic accelerating digital adoption, customers have become exceedingly particular about their brand preferences. Customer engagements across different touchpoints and devices have become a top priority for market penetration and building customer loyalty.

Proactively engaging with customers throughout their customer journey not only helps them make an informed choice but it also builds trust. Effective customer journey mapping provides key insights on customer needs and preferences, allowing brands to retarget their marketing vision and create positive brand experiences.

In this blog, we will discuss how different industries are leveraging cutting-edge technology solutions to maximize their brand outreach and drive engaging customer engagement across touchpoints.

1. Customer self-service portals

According to a recent report by Salesforce, 69% of decision makers at service organizations say self-service is a major part of their service strategy.

Self-service portals act as a one-stop solution for customers to access information related to the brand and its products, raise service requests, access community forums, or troubleshoot basic issues with detailed how-to guides, FAQs and videos. Self-service portals not only save time, they help brands drive personalized customer experiences leading to higher customer satisfaction. Customer self-service platforms allow brands to improve their customer service and mitigate hefty operational costs.

This success story highlights how Espire helped a leading European Insurance Holding Company develop a self-service portal to ensure faster time to market.
