Your Digital Experience Should Evolve with You
With deep integrations and a history of rock-solid reliability, see how HCL Digital Experience has evolved into the industry’s most robust cloud-native platform. Our top global digital agency firms tell us, “it’s much harder for DX platforms that support the anonymous user experience to bridge into the known user experience and integrate everything “behind the login.” HCL DX at the core shines by bringing all those applications and processes to life with relevant content that completes the customer journey”. It has been only 18 months since HCL acquired IBM Digital Experience, the longtime DX platform that is the leader across every analyst report in this space. We are incredibly proud of the progress we have made in advancing the technology to new heights — making the user experience more intuitive, providing modern tools for developers, and giving administrators more flexible options to deploy new capabilities 10x faster than before, whether in their on-premises environment, in the cloud, or in a hybrid cloud environment. We have come a long way, and the journey continues! When you are a leader, the competition can get fierce. Let's set the record straight. REALITY: Far from it. Our proven legacy in digital experience for decades has established deep trust from prospects and customers alike. Our eye for innovation has not been stifled as a result of our traditional systems and has in fact been accelerated since joining HCL. In the last 18 months, we have increased our engineering headcount by triple digits worldwide, and this trend will continue as we look to continue to build innovation our clients need. We have undertaken a continuous delivery model and have delivered 11 new releases since July 2019 and we have been recognized as the LEADER in the SPARK Matrix for DXP.   REALITY: Wrong! We have recently...

Six Ways to Ensure Your Digital Experience Is Excellent. In a Digital-Focused World, Make Sure You’re Working With the Best
A digital experience takes place when a customer has an interaction with an organization exclusively through digital technology. The world was already heading in an increasingly digital direction, but in the wake of COVID-19, as more and more teams and organizations have been working remotely and relying on technology to power their workflows, a strong digital customer experience has never been more imperative. What are some steps you can take right now to maximize your digital experiences?  Invest in strong customer experience software In order to ensure that they’re providing the best possible customer experience (or CX), companies need to prioritize their customer experience platform — cheaper one-trick-pony solutions won’t cut it. A strong CX platform will offer personalized options to the customer, ensure that their information is secure, and offer quick and reliable self-service when needed. Advanced data collection and machine learning personalization solutions included in a CX platform make a well-rounded solution crucial to invest in.       2. Provide a secure platform When providing secure personal information such as a bank account or patient ID, customers need to be sure that private and personally identifiable information is handled safely and securely. Though customers are generally willing and enthusiastic to engage in convenient digital experiences, the major data breaches of recent years still leave plenty of consumers understandably skittish about providing organizations with personal info. According to data gathered by Lift361, “strong security increases overall customer satisfaction from 13% to 40%, and customers have shown they are willing to spend more with companies they trust to protect their privacy and data.” Ensure that your tech has personal security measures in place and be transparent with users and prospects about just how safe they can feel using your platform.

What Is a Customer Experience Platform? The Last Great Experience Your Customer Has Becomes Their Expectation. You Need the Right Solution.
Customer experience (or CX as it’s commonly referred to) is an increasingly important priority for companies of all sizes. Organizations need to deliver highly contextualized experiences — not just simple websites and mobile apps — to reach customers with the right information, in the right way, every time. Business models are shifting and all us are having to adjust and adjust quickly. The last great experience a customer has now becomes their expectation — plus 96% of customers say customer service is important when choosing the brands they’re loyal to. Customers are more and more empowered in transactions as they’re able to do extensive research before buying and can closely compare between one company and their competitors. As organizations focus on providing exceptional CX, they need strong technology backing their process. That’s where a customer experience platform comes in.  What does customer experience software do?  To first understand why customer experience software is beneficial, we need to take a look at what customer experience is and why it matters so much. We know it’s an important factor in solidifying brand loyalty — but what does a solid customer experience actually look like?  It generally refers to the feeling and impression your customers are left with after they leave an interaction with your brand. This is a combination of how easy your website is to navigate, how helpful your customer support services are, how personalized the content it, how customized the experience is, and how much value they gained from your brand, services, or products itself. CX can be assessed with surveys, feedback, and churn rates.  Customer experience platform software is the technology solution an organization will use to observe, measure, handle, and improve the customer journey. These platforms serve as one-stop solutions for making sure that an organization doesn’t lose sight of important customer experience needs and initiatives, and are able to successfully meet their customer experience goals by tracking customer behavior, raising red flags...

How and Why You Should Digitize Business Processes
If it wasn’t abundantly clear before, the COVID-19 pandemic has proved that digitizing business-critical processes (and making teams productive remotely) is key to business continuity. Whether a business has 50 — or 50,000 — employees, its operations are influenced and impacted (if not completely overhauled) by technology designed to speed up, connect, improve and sustain work in the modern world. Digital transformation for enterprise organizations is a no-brainer. It’s the “how” that defines what success looks like. For some companies, embracing this digital transformation has been a gradual process of adoption.  Others have been digital all along, or they jumped in headfirst, undergoing a major overhaul all at once.  And for some it’s still an overwhelming burden, approached tentatively and perhaps even with aversion to change and new technology.  No matter the scenario, there’s little doubt, especially with remote work becoming ubiquitous, that old-school business processes that involve emailed documents and spreadsheets (or even paper-filled file cabinets) is not the way to go.  Digitizing business processes refers to the integration of digital information — pieces of physical, non-digital material that has been converted into a digital format — into an automated workflow that can replace manual, disconnected and paper-based processes.  It means digitizing business processes, increasing employee productivity, and improving customer satisfaction. It provides dramatic benefits to employees, partners, customers and the organization as a whole. Converting not just documents and data to digital, but also workflow, transactions, functions and processes, can be very complex. There are many payoffs, however. You will save time and money  Using digitized processes can free up employees from a multitude of monotonous tasks. Rather than email chains for tedious and regular processes approvals, regular and routine functions (payroll, time logs, inspection signoffs, etc.) can be routed through workflows automatically. Functions such as financial transactions, insurance claims, medical prescription processing, in-house training can be automated and make teams more productive...
