CX marries Digital

Virtuos creates an integrated CX.Digital Practice.

CX IS INTEGRAL TO DIGITAL MARKETING

Customer Experience and Digital Marketing go hand in hand and they are practically inseparable. Digital Transformation Projects always have Customer Experience and Marketing as one of the core elements. Over the last decade or so, Customer Experience (CX) has become a buzzword encompassing all the tenets of “experience”. Further CX has distinguished itself from its close cousin CRM.

CRM and CX are critical priorities, but strategies must adapt as the organization, its customers and its environment evolve. Failing to get the fundamentals right puts the organization at risk.

WHAT IS DIGITAL AND HOW IT RELATES TO CX

Digital is everywhere as a prefix or suffix for almost any part of the technology, transformation or optimization.

When Virtuos first announced “CX Marries Digital” in 2009, it looked more apt. In the last few years CX and Digital have become integrated and served as one. “CX Marries Digital” is a misnomer today as CX without Digital or Digital without CX ceases to exist in the world of digital transformation. It’s not a marriage but a co-existence.

EVOLUTION OF CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE (CX)

Customer Experience has become a next competitive battlefield. Many Organizations see the customer experience as a sustainable source of competitive differentiation. Customer Experience (CX) is defined as the customer's perceptions and related feelings caused by the one-off and cumulative effect of interactions with a supplier's employees, systems, channels or products.
Customer Service

Customer Service

For many decades Customer Service (also known as Post Sales Service) has always been treated as a cost center meeting the obligations of sales and business operations.

Until 2016 Customer experience ranked low on the list of increased expectation of marketing by senior leadership, spurring reallocation of resources to more immediately impact revenue.

CX AND MARKETING

Customer experience as the marketing leaders' next battlefield — and what this will mean for you. Changes to customer experience, analytics, the expanding influence of Amazon and more mean marketers need to effectively balance competing demands. The COVID-19 has changed the priorities of CX Leaders and Marketing Leaders towards cost savings, resilience, and profitability.
By 2022, profitability will replace customer experience as the CMO’s No. 1 strategic priority.
CX Heirarchy

CX has become an independent function of Marketing, Customer Service, Sales, Operations, Employee Experience (EX)/HR and Commerce. This simply means every department has an integrated CX component for the brand's bigger vision of creating "experience" as a key differentiator. This also gave the rise to the birth of new kind of a CEO — ExperienCEO.

CHIEF MARKETING OFFICER VS. CHIEF CUSTOMER OFFICER

Benchmarking against peers and competitors is an essential priority for the CMO when developing strategy and budget. Balancing the needs of individual departments to hit key performance indicators (KPIs) with the wider goal of improving the CX is the CCO role.
