CX Analytics Drive Digital Transformation

Posted by Steven Perry

Wed, Jan 23, 2019 @ 07:01 AM

As we begin a new year, now may be an ideal time for many online businesses to rethink their digital transformation initiatives.  With expectations continuing to grow in the digital marketplace, online marketers must be able to quickly understand the needs of customers across all digital journeys in effort to deliver exceptional cross-channel customer experiences and to stay ahead of the competition.  Developing a solid digital transformation strategy will give businesses the means to understand customers’ needs and empower them to deliver value that is aligned with the customer demands.

Requirement of an effective digital transformation strategy

For many companies, digital technologies have been the driving force behind how they improve customer engagements and find new ways to transform business.  Yet, most lack the required data and insight needed to really understand digital customer experience issues which results in a transformation approach that misses the mark.  An effective digital transformation strategy must move beyond traditional web analytics, which offers a glimpse into customer interactions, and embrace Customer Experience (CX) analytics to get a thorough understanding of customer behaviors and journeys.  Although basic digital analytics provide you with details as to what is happening on a website, like number of clicks, page views or bounce rates, it does not tell you why digital properties perform as they do By applying CX analytic tools to customer data, businesses achieve an understanding into why and how users interact with digital properties rather than the properties themselves.  CX analytics plays an important role in producing successful digital transformation plans by supplying organizations with actionable insights that they can use to improve customer engagements and optimize digital experiences.  CX analytics have essentially become a digital transformation imperative.

Drive digital innovation with actionable insights

Data is an important component in the success of digital transformation.  Using the right customer data coupled with advanced data analysis supplies companies with rich insight into customer behaviors that enable them to create more actionable insights to use to improve customer experiences and maximize digital business performance.   By leveraging the robust data analysis capabilities of CX analytics, organizations can achieve the insight needed to drive digital innovation across some key areas of their businesses, which include digital process optimization, site optimization and marketing effectiveness, allowing them to rise above the constraints in the adoption of digital technologies.   Let’s take a closer look at three key areas:

 

Digital Process Optimization

At the core of digital transformation is process optimization which entails restructuring business processes across an organization – sales, marketing, customer service, operations, etc. – to help create enriched customer centric experiences.  Using CX analytics, companies can measure process effectiveness and obtain a greater view into the overall performance of their important business processes as well as identify individual process steps that may require enhancements or improvement.    Additionally, the capability to drill deeper using session analysis and to segment data in CX analytics offers companies insight into both the what and the why behind business performance. Allowing them to understand what causes customer struggle in certain process steps and quickly take corrective measures to carry out improvements to optimize business processes.

Site Optimization

A critical part in digital transformation is ensuring that web pages on your site are fully optimized to draw customers, drive engagement and ultimately boost conversions.  Site optimization encompasses several different factors from detecting struggle, understanding page engagement, improving site usability and search function, to providing the right content to enrich customer experience.  By applying behavior analysis in CX analytics, organizations can gain a better understanding of customer behavior across their site to assist in optimizing search and page engagements and identifying areas of customer struggle.  With increased visibility into customer experiences, struggles and paths, companies can identify best practices and areas of improvement for optimizing their site to furnish enriched digital customer experiences.

Marketing effectiveness

Marketing plays a major function in the digital transformation process.  Not only are marketing efforts required to produce powerful content to drive customer engagement throughout the customer journey, they are also expected to maximize marketing effectiveness and boost return on investment (ROI).  By leveraging the power of artificial intelligence (AI) in CX Analytics, companies can realize valuable insights that can be used to develop more personalized campaigns and messages based on customer behavior.  Armed with rich customer insights, marketers can produce impactful campaigns that will produce improved segmentation and better yields.

 

Start accelerating digital innovation

Successful digital transformation involves a customer-centric approach that empowers companies to produce innovative and engaging customer experiences across their entire organization.  By focusing on the key elements in digital innovation and applying the power of CX analytics for actionable insights, businesses can prevail over digital transformation challenges and begin to address rising customer expectations in the digital landscape to stay ahead of the competition.  To get started with accelerating digital innovation using CX analytics, click the title below to download Pereion's white page, Customer Experience Analytics: A Digital Transformation Imperative."

Improve Digital Intelligence to Transform your Business

Posted by Steven Perry

Tue, Dec 11, 2018 @ 07:12 AM

As an online organization, you understand the necessity of embracing digital transformation to promote engagements and readily respond to your customers’ evolving needs and expectations. Central to this pivotal shift is the ability to improve your digital intelligence and gain the actionable insight required to execute transformative initiatives that are based on a true understanding of your customers’ behaviors, journeys and experiences – empowering you to deliver value across your business that is aligned with customer expectations and demands.

 

Convert your customer data into actionable insight

By applying powerful analytic capabilities to customer data, Watson™ Customer Experience Analytics (Watson CXA) and IBM® Tealeaf® Customer Experience on Cloud (Tealeaf CX on Cloud) offers actionable insight into customer behavior and assists you with making better decisions to drive digital transformation across your business. Utilizing struggle analytics, you can easily monitor specific processes, pages and events on your site to quickly identify where your customers struggle, while real-time alerting can be enabled to quickly notify you at the first sign of struggle. By then applying session replay technology, you can identify why your customers struggle – offering a valuable macro to micro view on customer behavior that you can use to rectify issues and optimize the many campaigns, processes and digital experiences that drive business across your site.

Journey analytics can assist further, by allowing you to readily compare customer paths across unique segments like web, mobile and email, offering you a deeper understanding of multi-channel customer journeys and the ability to identify paths where your customers may struggle and recognize what actions may lead your customers to convert. Additional capabilities like geospatial analytics can expand your reach and help you understand where your customer are engaging or struggling with your organization across regions, offering you additional insight you can use to make more targeted and informed decisions about your business and execute digital transformation efforts that focus on areas of growth and global opportunities.

Optimize experiences with data-driven success

Successful digital transformation requires a customer-centric approach that enables you to leverage data-driven insights based on customer behaviors to create engaging and optimized customer experiences across your entire organization. Creating advanced search events and customized reporting using Watson CXA and Tealeaf CX on Cloud can assist by providing deeper insight into customer behavior before, during and after performing search, offering the opportunity to optimize search terms and functions and improve content on your site to more actively engage your customers. Similarly, developing business process scorecards can help you measure and score your overall business process success by identifying the abandonment and conversion rates across and within each step of a critical business process, allowing you to recognize and root out inefficiencies in your important steps and optimize business processes across your organization. The capacity to segment your customer data and compare unique segments of customers offers you the capability to recognize issues with particular segments and optimize experiences, engagements and processes across your entire digital channels.

Applying usability analytics like heat maps are also very beneficial in providing insight into customer interactions on your pages and help you recognize usability issues with your site. As heat map overlays identify regions of a page where customers click or hover, they can assist you with identifying high and low interest areas on a page and providing insight you can use to replicate engaging content, make your pages more personal for your customers and optimize your page design to enrich the customer experience. The new feature of anomaly detection can further boost your business intelligence by providing real-time, actionable insights that assist you with detecting unusual patterns, or outliers, in your customer behavior data and determining contributing factors – helping you discover unexpected incidents and quickly respond to evolving issues to optimize and transform your entire online business performance.

Enhance Customer Journeys with Customer Insights using Watson CXA

All too often, many customers experience frustration in their digital online journeys. Such as a poor online check out process, a link that doesn’t direct you to the appropriate information or an invalid coupon code. All can lead to abandon carts or ignored marketing campaigns that, in the end, result in disappointed customers and marketers.

The key to a successful customer journey is having the appropriate data to better understand your customers. Each customer journey requires both a starting point and a goal. That goal should be a mutual win-win that builds up your relationship with your customer at every conversion point. The use of the customer data can help in achieving the mutual goal.

Sample Journeys

The What vs. the Why of the Customer Journey

While traditional web analytics do a great job in evaluating what is happening with your website, like number of clicks, page views or bounce rates, it does not tell you why your digital properties perform as they do. Use of customer data gives you the why in the equation. When you have both what and why, you acquire the insight needed to help improve customer journeys.

Customer data focuses on how users interact with your digital properties rather than the properties themselves. Customer data awards you a competitive advantage in that it supplies you with the knowledge needed to create exceptional digital experiences that produce outstanding journeys.

Customer Insights

Let’s take a look at the types of customer data that can be helpful in creating positive impressions on customer journeys:

  • Mindset Data – Are the key stages in the customer experience with a brand. Based on the customer interaction performed, customers are placed in one of the five mindsets
    1. Discover-customers are starting to learn what you’re are offering
    2. Compare-customers are looking at all the options available.
    3. Acquire-customers have purchased one or more product
    4. Use-customers that are your users who may register their product or contact the
      help desk
    5. Advocate-customers sharing product info on social media or supplying a
      customer product review

Mindset data can aid in building remarkable experiences along the customer journey that result in progress from one mindset segment to the next.

  • Behavior Data displays and captures customer data through heatmaps, session replays and form analytics. These behavior analytic capabilities can pin point customer struggles that need immediate attention across all channels with speed and accuracy which ultimately drive ROI. This allows marketers to stay ahead of the competition, be more dependable and gain valuable insight to ensure customers achieve goals throughout their journey.
  • Engagement and Value Data can be created by leveraging AI customer analytic solutions, like Watson CXA. Customer value data calculations can be made for you with a level of speed and accuracy that does not involve a team of data scientists. The outcome being a recognized ROI.

Leverage Watson CXA to Improve Customer Journeys

By leveraging AI powered Watson Customer Experience Analytics (CXA), a better understanding of how customers interact with your brand can be achieved in journeys across time, devices and channels. It gives you insight into to why your customers experience issues, the visibility into the customer experience and the ability to segment customer sets so you can take immediate action. All allow you to make better, faster and smarter business decisions across customer touchpoints.

Accelerating B2B Digital Transformation with CX Analytics

Posted by Steven Perry

Like many organizations, B2B companies have elevated digital transformation on their business agenda. Faced with rising expectations in a competitive landscape where much of the B2B decision-making process is now online, B2Bs realize they must quickly understand and address their customers’ needs across their digital journeys and deliver an exceptional eCommerce experience. But, while digital technologies are forcing B2B companies to rethink how they can best service their customers and adopt new ways of transforming their business, they often find themselves struggling to overcome B2B digital innovation challenges.

Challenges in B2B

As more and more millennials are now B2B buyers, B2B organizations need to better understand their needs and evolve their customer service capabilities to deliver more personalized, hassle-free online experiences that they have come to expect. This requires that B2B organizations uncover inefficiencies and acquire a deep understanding of their customer pain points to quickly find ways to alleviate friction and deliver the highest level of customer service possible. At the same time, B2B marketers are under pressure to increase marketing effectiveness and understand what offers, content, and services will engage key segments and deliver a substantial return on investment (ROI) across digital innovation efforts.

Complex B2B Processes

One of the biggest challenges B2B organizations face in digital innovation is the complexity of their business transactions -- where the typical B2B transaction is usually high volume and comprised of many different components in a single transaction. A good example that illustrates the intricacy of B2B business processes is automobile manufacturing, where car makers must source many unique parts – tires, hoses, batteries and electronics, etc. – that are often manufactured from numerous different vendors. The process encompasses seeking qualified supplies, requesting proposals, handling quotations, managing special pricing and advanced payment options, handling supply chain and order management, as well as administering customer service and support, and more. Digital transformation involves facilitating these B2B processes online in a very effective manner where operational efficiency is key to creating the superior customer experiences that B2B buyers expect.

Requirement for data-driven insights

Success in B2B digital transformation boils down to data – and the ability to secure the right customer data and apply the necessary data analysis to truly understand customer behaviors and journeys to create more actionable insights that B2B companies can use to improve customer engagements and optimize experiences. By leveraging robust data analysis capabilities using CX analytics, B2B players can gain the insight needed to drive digital innovation across key areas of their business including process optimization, eCommerce site optimization and marketing effectiveness, allowing them to overcome constraints in the adoption of digital technologies. CX analytics have essentially become a B2B digital transformation imperative.

Driving B2B digital innovation

One of the important areas where CX analytics offers B2Bs invaluable capabilities is in process optimization. Given the complexity of B2B eCommerce transactions, B2B organizations have a heightened requirement to understand user behaviors to monitor and optimize critical business processes across their organization. Using CX analytics, B2B companies can measure the effectiveness of their individual online process steps and quickly identify and understand their customers’ online struggles in order to remove points of friction and provide an optimized experience across their entire business process. The ability to identify inefficiencies with the complete flow of processes also helps unite B2B teams in collaborative efforts around the digital innovation plan and offers B2B organizations the insight needed to uncover better ways to deliver optimized online solutions and services to their customers.

CX analytics also provides B2B companies valuable insight they can use for eCommerce site optimization and improving marketing effectiveness. By using behavior analysis in CX analytics, B2B organizations can understand customer behavior across their site – including engagement with page content and engagements before, during and after search functions – offering insights they can use to optimize their site and enhance search terms and functions. Struggle analytics can further assist by uncovering where and why customers struggle and offering the insights B2B companies need to rectify issues and optimize the customer experience across their entire site. B2B organizations can also use behavior analytics to analyze behavior patterns and identify customer paths, and then apply advanced segmentation to drill further into customer behavior, to gain the insight necessary to develop more impactful, personalized campaigns focused on customer wants and needs – and maximize marketing effectiveness to deliver a healthy ROI with digital transformation initiatives.

Addressing the right factors in digital innovation – and applying the power of CX analytics for data-driven insights -- helps B2B organizations overcome their digital transformation challenges and offers the agility to respond to evolving customer expectations to stay ahead of the competition.
