Customer Insights plus Cross-Channel Empowerment
Before a company can deliver exceptional customer experiences, it must fully understand its customers' needs and expectations. And not only must such customer insights be acquired, they must be analyzed and integrated into the company's overall customer experience strategy.
Such a goal is complicated, however, by customers' use of multiple research and purchasing channels as well as their own channel-specific behaviors and demands. Customers move back and forth from one channel to another, initiate the same request through multiple channels, and at times perform activities in less-than-predictable sequences. Yet they expect and want an integrated experience with institutional memory.
For these reasons, most multi-channel customer experience strategies fall short due to limited integration of customer insights and/or failure to effectively extend the products and services customers want across all relevant channels. What's needed are customer experience innovations that leverage all available resources, reduce time spent in any step of the process, and empower customers–and front-line sales associates–with the interactive, intuitive, and highly productive tools they need to get a job done.

To truly differentiate your brand, you need to employ such cross-channel experience innovations to ensure a uniform, dependable chain of events for each customer while also growing loyalty via dependable, rewarding, engaging, and highly memorable customer interactions and outcomes.
