The customer experience is evolving. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s now more important than ever for businesses to provide a high-quality experience across all touchpoints. According to Forbes, 76% of today’s buyers think that businesses should anticipate their needs, and nearly half of surveyed consumers report leaving a brand after a bad experience. And it’s these bad experiences that are costing organizations $75 billion every year.

As the pressure to provide a seamless experience grows, many businesses struggle to identify and fulfill customer needs. To meet these constantly shifting expectations, marketers are looking to create end-to-end, highly personalized customer experiences built from customer data and reach customers on the channels they use most.
