Our customer, prospect, partner and community is changing. Advances in technology is blurring the lines between mobile, desktops, devices, in store and online shopping for users.
Since 90% of mobile users keep their device within arms reach 100% of the time, people no longer think about “what device am I going to use to access this website or purchase something online today.” Instead they just do it. Today's mobile user simply picks up the device. They then click, scroll, view, read, engage, speak, listen and purchase as they choose.
They expect the experience to support their needs. They want to be able to easily access and update their profile, make a purchase, and engage with others in the community. They want to learn, be inspired, be empowered and be heard. They want to know the business on the other end cares and treats them as a human being, not just a credit card forced to engage, learn and purchase in an antiquated, frustrating environment. Experience is everything!
For business leaders this means we must create the end to end user experience our audiences, customers, partners, stakeholders demand. We can't think about it after we realize sales are slipping. We must know what they want, when and how they want it. We must design for the experience from the start.
Designing exceptional digital experiences requires not only core elements such as mobile, analytics, rich content, analytics, and social, but also must have capabilities like portal and its personalization, security, integration and management of content.
