The Offer You Can't Refuse
This last decade has been characterized by the introduction of 4G, social media and
mobile services. These technologies have given rise to a new minimum in terms of
customer experience. Customers expect ease of use, friendly and empathic staff,
omnichannel services and competitive prices. In the years to come, customer
experience will reach a whole new level. Naturally, technology (5G, quantum
computing, robotics and AI) will play a key role in customer expectations, but it goes
way beyond that. Invisible and automatic interfaces will become a necessity but the
ultimate ease of use will no longer be enough to come out on top. Automation is but
the first step. But what if customers start to have expectations that go beyond
convenience? In addition, companies will have to play an active role in their
customers’ life journey. As a company how can you help consumers’ dreams come
true and eliminate the obstacles in their day-to-day lives? And finally, companies
have the opportunity to tackle concrete world problems together with the customer.
The world is facing unprecedented challenges: climate, healthcare, government
budget deficits, mobility… How can a company involve its customers in the solution
to these problems? The combination of automation, being a partner in consumers’
lives and solving actual social issues will be the guiding principles for the successful
business of the next decade. For consumers, the combination of all these elements
constitutes an offer they can’t refuse.
