In today's competitive business landscape, it's no longer enough to simply offer a product or service – you need to create a memorable customer experience that sets you apart from the rest. This is where a customer experience (CX) strategy comes into play. A well-defined CX strategy can help you build customer loyalty, increase revenue, and boost brand awareness.
In today’s competitive market, and as a result of changing consumer expectations, it is not enough to simply provide a product or service; businesses must also ensure that their customers have a positive experience when interacting with them.

A fully connected service prioritises customer experience by consistently and seamlessly integrating technology and data to connect digital touchpoints, frontline and operational teams, and physical spaces. This results in a delightful and effortless interaction for the customer, no matter the time, place, method, or reason for their interaction.
Advancements in technology, such as smartphones, modern web technologies, cloud computing, APIs, microservices, data standards, identity and payment platforms, among others, have enabled businesses to offer services and create experiences that are more accessible, desirable, personal, and exciting for users.
Hybrids used to be the realm of flowers and cars. Then COVID-19 threw support services into the mix: at the deep end.

We are all still adapting to new ways of working. And with this in mind, we must ensure we are working to create a positive work culture both as things change and for the future.
