Customer Experience Is Changing: Are You Leading Or Falling behind?

30 January 2014

Many organisations are now using new technology and effective engagement systems to advance their customer management.  They’re seeking to integrate customer insight and multichannel engagement to coordinate activities and improve the overall customer experience. 

Although marketing technology is an essential component of these efforts, it’s not technology adoption alone that matters but how well it’s integrated across channels and throughout your business. 

For 2014 Brand Republic are teaming up with HP Autonomy for a three part campaign, comprising survey, webcast and expert report, to research and discuss how customer experience is developing.

In this live webcast we will: 

  • Discuss new technologies that offer powerful behavioural analysis and segmentation to drive precise channel attribution and personalisation
  • Reveal the survey results to show new advances in customer experience and how to keep up
  • Offer brand case studies to inspire you to take your customer experience to the next level
