What if customers expect more than just a good product, excellent service and perfectly performing digital interfaces? And what if new technologies like 5G, artificial intelligence, quantum computing and robotics offer possibilities that go beyond mere ease of use?
Digital ease of use is the new minimum. It has become a commodity. The customer now regards it as the most normal thing in the world to have access to limitless products and services with just a single click of a mouse. In the years ahead, companies will need to play an active role in the 'life journey' of customers: helping to make their dreams come true and removing problems from their daily lives. In addition, customers are looking increasingly to companies instead of governments to tackle societal challenges like climate change, health care and mobility.
If your company succeeds in providing outstanding digital service, becomes a partner in the life of your customers and provides solutions for major societal issues, you will develop 'an offer you can't refuse'.
We are now entering the third phase of digitalization: the phase of far-reaching automation and artificial intelligence. This shift will radically change the relationship between companies and their customers. If companies want to remain customer-oriented, they will need to devise a new kind of customer strategy.
This book will guide you through the new phase of digitalization and help you to develop the mindset you need to keep your company ahead of the game in The Day After Tomorrow. Only then will you be able to successfully combine the most brilliant digital innovations with the most unique human skills.
