Omni-Channel Touchpoints

Today’s customers want companies to know them – their preferences, their purchases, their history, and their credit card numbers—across all channels. They want the same brand experience whether in store, online or on the phone. The cus¬tomers who spend the most money and shop the most often tend to shop om¬ni-channel. Learn how to create a seam¬less customer service experience.

 

Building a Culture of Customer Service Excellence 

World-class customer experiences are created from the inside of an organiza¬tion out. Discover a wealth of ideas for creating a great customer service cul¬ture.

 

Creating Great Customer Experiences 

To create the ultimate customer expe¬rience, you must view your business through the eyes of your customer. Would you want to be a customer of your organization? Learn how to deliver a consistently inviting, helpful and easy experience across all touchpoints. It’s more than generating quality transac¬tions, it’s about building lasting relation¬ships.

 

Creating and Telling Your Company Story

Developing a compelling narrative about who you are, how you started, what you stand for, and your purpose and vision, is the foundation for build¬ing an authentic and powerful com¬pany culture and brand. Learn how to tell your story to your employees, and infuse your culture with that story. Then discover how that story can be reflected outward to your customers in meaningful ways.
