Driving incremental revenue through a personalised customer experience

Is 2018 finally the year where businesses become customer, rather than internally, driven? Traditionally, companies have separated marketing, commercial and operational teams in to distinct silos – each working on their part of the business to deliver against internal targets. The customer, however, doesn’t think like this – to them, you are one brand.

Personalisation has long been spoken about in the digital world, but only recently has the concept of joined up end to end journeys become a real possibility. Through bringing together offline operational, loyalty and transactional data, with digital data, brands can now deliver on the promise of a truly personalised, online to offline, experience.

Rather than being a marketing gimmick, this can benefit companies in two key ways: operational efficiency and incremental revenue growth. A joined up data strategy can enable companies to utilise data beyond a single siloed application – it enables, companies to get closer to their customers, drive additional relevance, loyalty, operational efficiency and ultimately revenue.

Many companies today are undertaking digital transformation initiatives and exploring new technologies such as IoT, AI and Blockchain. Independently these technologies can bring many benefits but when combined they can bring even greater business value and help companies create the ‘autonomous ecosystem’ of tomorrow. However, many companies simply do not have the internal resources to explore these new technologies. Leveraging an outsourced approach to establishing a digital foundation to explore these technologies can bring many business benefits. This session discusses how OpenText Business Network can provide people, processes and technology to establish the digital foundation to enable and integrate with these disruptive technologies.
