20 Most Promising Customer Experience Management Solution Providers 2016

With customers rapidly embracing new, digital channels of communication, the Customer Experience Management (CEM) space is transcending to newer frontiers. The utility of mobile devices—Smartphones and tablets—as a medium of interaction is well leveraged by companies to communicate and connect with their customers. Essentially, firms are embracing innovative customer experience methodologies that place consumers at the heart of their business strategies. Every time a customer communicates with a service provider, be it for downloading a digital application, updating a service, paying bills, or calling customer care; brands are looking to provide an omni-channel experience, which will boost customer loyalty and retention.

To sail through the volatile market, companies are now focused on developing one-to-one communication channels built around customer’s specific needs. Coupled with latest technologies like big data, analytics, and cloud, these channels will optimize end-to-end customer experience process.
