Autonomous Customer Experience for Communications Service Providers

Autonomous Customer Experience Through Best in Class Service Design and Delivery

Customer Experience Management (CEM) is fast becoming the dominant focus for Communications Service Providers (CSPs) to differentiate their products and services and improve customer satisfaction. Improving customer satisfaction drives customer loyalty and advocacy, which boosts follow-on sales and creates cross-and up-selling opportunities. Gartner estimates that 89% of businesses will be competing on customer experience very soon. The primary challenge for CSPs is that implementing a successful CEM strategy requires significant process change and investment in new technologies.

While the challenges of autonomous customer experience are perennial, the rapid pace of technology advances in the digital era is changing the nature of the user experience, requiring new strategies and tactics for launching enhancements to improve the customer experience.

Aricent understands these requirements and follows a cyclical approach for autonomous customer experience through continuous process improvement. The phases of our continuous improvement process include: Knowing your customer and their environment; delivering services and care; and constantly measuring, adapting and improving the enhancements. This process requires a deep understanding of the customer network and ecosystems, delivering best-in-class services and processes and leveraging our state of the art Machine Learning tools to autonomously provide recommendations for all customer touchpoints.
