CSG’s State of the Customer Experience 2023 Report Uncovers Trending Areas for First-Class CX Strategy
CSG® (NASDAQ: CSGS), the leader in innovative customer experience, revenue management and payments solutions that make ordinary customer experiences extraordinary, today released The State of the Customer Experience 2023 Report. With data from over 12 billion global customer journey interactions and 710 million supported end consumers this year, CSG found that business leaders are feeling the need for speed to accelerate digital customer experiences (CX) but need help kickstarting their CX journey.
“This year’s findings illustrate a clear runway for the future of customer experience,” said Mark Smith, Senior Vice President of Customer Experience at CSG. “Brand leaders are more eager than ever to board the CX plane but understand they first need a clear flight plan to get to their destination. This all starts with the basics – understand your customer, receive their trust by integrating security, and maintain the quality of non-digital experiences for customers who aren’t ready for the leap. Once you lay this solid foundation, the horizon for digital innovations in CX like digital wallets, virtual reality, and ‘phygital’ customer experiences is limitless.”
The CSG State of the Customer Experience 2023 Report focuses on the most important enhancements and strategies for brands to win at CX in the digital era. Here are the top four trends in customer experience:
- Businesses are reorganizing from the top down to reinvigorate and unify CX efforts. To take to the skies, brands are pursuing a mix of transformational changes, like the creation of more CXO leadership roles and incremental enhancements to better understand the customer. This shift starts with the adoption of sophisticated AI (Artificial Intelligence) solutions to automate certain processes as well as customer experience technology like journey orchestration that supports real-time customer segmentation with intelligent decisioning and data analytics.
- In a world of rapid digitalization, businesses cannot neglect non-digital, traditional processes. There will always be a portion of customers who prefer to have their boarding pass printed, handed to them by airline personnel or loaded onto their phone. Just like there will always be a portion of customers who prefer manual processes, physical check payments, paper statements, and live customer support. The move toward digital experiences must strike a balance with continued high-quality, non-digital experiences and offer creative, hybrid approaches that meet the needs of all customers.
Simultaneously, future-ready businesses are packing their bags for immersive digital experiences in VR/AR and perhaps the metaverse. This means designing a virtual presence with CX at its heart. Companies must consider IT infrastructure readiness to support transactions in a virtual, decentralized world and the interoperable network functions of a digital marketplace. Businesses must lay the metaverse foundation now by developing strategic business support systems that enable 5G connectivity, design interactions with CX in mind, and leverage embedded payments everywhere to deliver on the promise of the metaverse.
- Like boarding a commercial airplane,security checkpoints are paramount to delivering extraordinary CX. Security is non-negotiable for the customer experienceespecially as consumers are hyper-aware of the data they put into the hands of brands. Security, transparency, and privacy drive trust, which is one of the most critical elements of today’s customer experience and the reason why we can anticipate the rise of the CTrO (Chief Trust Officer).
These CX trends illustrate why brands need a trusted technology partner and expert to help them: assess the maturity of their CX capabilities, data and strategy; define CX goals and measure ROI; manage end-to-end customer journeys in real-time; connect and securely enable digital payments; and enable seamless connectivity and monetization of these experiences.
