A path-breaking solution to bring customer correspondence of SMBs at par with enterprise’s

Effectively engaging experiences across customer touch points is a proven differentiator for customer-centric organizations. Your regular correspondence such as bills, statements, promotions, notices, etc. can act as customer engagement livewires. Your correspondence for different channels such as print, email, SMS, social media, etc., should be consistent with their seamless experience.

How do organizations manage their customer correspondence?  

Over the last two decades, due to technological advancement, and changing consumer behavior, delivery mediums for such correspondence has shifted from print and fax to –emails, SMS, the internet, mobile apps, and social media. When business applications were created in the past, they didn’t consider creating templates or automating for modern delivery mediums.

Leading Customer Communications Management (CCM) software providers such as GMC, HP Exstream, DOC1, etc. offers a centralized platform to create, manage and deliver customer communications through multiple delivery mediums across customer touch points.

Challenges of SMBs in managing customer correspondence

Large size organizations can invest a significant amount of resources and funds for; and a large chunk of that goes into procuring hardware, licensing, and maintaining a pool of highly skilled workforce. Due to a high cost of ownership, modern CCM tools are out of reach for mid-size organizations. However, the mid-size organizations are currently managing their correspondence by:

  • Multiple legacy business applications
  • Outsource to their print services partners

The above approach has certain limitations, some of them are:

  • Hassles of managing multiple business applications
  • Scalability and elasticity constraints
  • High manpower requirements
  • Format inconsistency across delivery channels
  • No provision to accommodate innovations
  • Limited control over processes and associated risks due to dependency on vendors

Unavailability of an efficient platform puts SMEs behind in effectiveness of customer correspondence, customer experience quotient, and eventually performance, as compared to their large-scale peers. It becomes a challenge for SMEs as they cannot compromise on customer experience or allocate investments for modern CCM software.
