Real time channel orchestration helps
create exceptional customer journeys
Retailers are investing in digital transformation initiatives that improve customer experience across all channels. However, a successful digital transformation also requires a strong omnichannel strategy. No two customers are the same, and providing the best customer service experiences for all your customers is complicated. Often times, customers want the ease of digital channels and the tangible experience of a brick-and-mortar service. From email, mobile apps, and social media, to chat, messaging, and voice, organisations are realising that to create exceptional, relevant experiences for customers, they need to provide the right kind of support across all service and marketing channels.
Channel orchestration is about creating a seamless experience that effectively integrates multiple channels, both traditional and digital, to balance customer expectations and business needs. It leverages the customer preferences for these different channels while driving down costs and improving the overall quality of the experience. Adding AI, machine learning, and operational efficiencies can optimise processes and improve employee experience to increase savings further. Just as an orchestra is composed of various instruments coming together harmoniously, channel orchestration is about bringing different interaction channels together to perform harmoniously for the customer.

- Detailed rollout plan: Providing a data-driven prioritisation of future efforts and a fact-based business case based on quantitative insights helps gain senior leadership buy-in.
