What is a customer experience interaction?
Managing Customer Experience Interactions (CXi) is a comprehensive approach that addresses all customer interactions across the entire customer journey, regardless of where these interactions originate, even beyond the boundaries of the contact centre. This approach offers numerous benefits, overcoming the limitations of traditional customer experience (CX) management, which often leads to fragmented and inconsistent customer experiences due to dispersed responsibilities across different departments.
The contact centre plays a pivotal role in the effective execution of a CXi strategy. Here are some of the primary ways in which contact centres can contribute to enhancing the customer experience:
Journey Orchestration: Contact centres must orchestrate resolution journeys, guiding customers to the most suitable support channels for their specific issues. This involves ensuring a seamless and efficient path for customers to receive the assistance they require.
Smart Self-Service: Effective self-service is a critical component of a CXi approach, as modern consumers are increasingly inclined to address their concerns independently. Contact centres should optimise self-service solutions for the right tasks, provide contextual assistance within the design, and ensure a clear and seamless path for customers to transition to agent assistance when needed.
Empowered Agents: Agents need to be equipped to assist customers effectively, possessing the requisite knowledge and resources to provide quick and accurate resolutions. This necessitates comprehensive coaching and training programs, along with easy access to tools like knowledge bases and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems through a unified agent desktop.
Operational Excellence: Achieving operational excellence is a fundamental element of a successful CXi strategy. Every aspect of the contact centre, spanning workforce management, agent training, and quality management, must function with precision. This entails a commitment to continuous improvement to ensure customers consistently receive the best possible experiences.
