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.

 

Get started with building digital intelligence to transform your business!

Implementing effective customer behavior analysis can set the stage for the discovery of actionable insights you can use to drive digital transformation across your business. To help you get started with delivering consistent and extraordinary customer experiences, Pereion Solutions has developed a series of videos that introduce the important use cases you can execute to improve your digital intelligence and put customer insights to work using Watson CXA and Tealeaf CX on Cloud.

Enhance Customer Journeys with Customer Insights using Watson CXA

Posted by Steven Perry

Tue, Aug 21, 2018 @ 07:08 AM

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.

Journey_screen

  • 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.

Watson Customer Experience Analytics Named Leader by Forrester

Posted by Steven Perry

Tue, Jul 31, 2018 @ 07:07 AM

In the recent Forrester Wave™: Customer Analytics Solutions Q2, 2018 report, IBM was recognized as a leader based on  IBM’s Watson Customer Experience Analytics (CXA) and Watson Marketing Insights (WMI). Scoring high overall in a 39-criteria evaluation in the areas of business impact, time to value as well as product investment and vision.

The evaluation included 9 customer analytics solution vendors who provide a comprehensive customer analytics platform which offer DIFM (“do- it-for-me”- business user friendly) and out of the box capabilities. According to the report, as demand for easy and instant access to customer insights among many professionals has increased so has the market for DIFM customer analytics solutions. Due to lack of IT and data science resources within many organizations, this new class of customer analytics solutions has surfaced allowing non-technical business users to leverage the insights needed to make better business decisions.

Watson CXA outperforms in Journey and Struggle Analytics 

Watson CXA distanced itself from the competition by excelling in Journey Analytics and Struggle Analytics in the Forrester evaluation.  Both offer a greater visibility into customers' behavior resulting in outstanding digital customer experiences by leveraging an infusion of Watson AI technology.

In addition, Watson CXA was named a leader in customer experience solutions. Let's take a more detailed look at the latest enhancements.

Watson CXA updates provide improved user management capabilities and increased access to flexible reports

All IBM Watson CXA customers that have enabled IBM Digital Analytics within the US data center now have access to preview flexible reports.

With flexible reports, you can quickly create ad hoc reports for all your data.**

IBM Tealeaf CX on Cloud has many new enhancements that provide increased ease of use and functionality

  • Ability to delete all sessions option has been added to the Session Search list. This feature allows users to delete sessions from IBM Tealeaf on Cloud, including sessions exported to IBM Bluemix COS, and IBM Softlayer COS.
  • Remove user's personal information from Tealeaf reports by using the Purge feature. You can selectively delete dimension values from displaying in any report to any level of the user (including org admins, support users, sysadmins). Additionally, you can purge all historical data associated with the dimension from Tealeaf on Cloud reports.
  • The Distance Between Event condition has been enhanced to include two new parameters:
    • ExistsOnCurrentStep
    • ExistsOnCurrentHit

 DistanceBetweenNewOptionsWhen you specify Exists on Hit or Exists on Step, the distance is calculated only when the Event fires and fires on the current Hit or current Step, otherwise the fired events are ignored. This can be useful when you need to track all occurrences of a Distance Event.

  • Expanded capabilities for the Asset Manager. The ability to search, view details, download, delete and upload Web Replay Assets capabilities have been included in the Asset Manager.
  • Can't remember which sessions you viewed? Now viewed sessions are marked with play icons making it easier for you to see which sessions you previously viewed.
  • Ability to authorize a regular user to help manage Session Export tasks with a new role named SessionDataAdmin. Users that are assigned the SessionDataAdmin role will have access to the Data Export feature and can create exit and manage Session Export tasks.
  • An All Alerts option has been added to the Alert Manager. In the past, alerts were viewable only by the person who created them and by the users with whom the Alert was shared. Now, the All Alerts option provides the OrgAdmin access to every alert for the organization, making it easy to access, manage and troubleshoot Alerts.

IBM Digital Analytics improves report features and the management of personal data
