Creating great customer experiences is at the core of every successful organisation. Organizations must innovate and continually improve their products, services, processes, and customer outcomes to achieve this.
Being creative and customer-focused is just one part of the puzzle. Agility and speed of innovation must be used in tandem with them as the new hidden weapons needed to keep up with competitors, outpace them, and adjust to changing customer needs.
Digital is the new front door to every business
The businesses that survive and thrive will be those that redefine how they go to market. As organisations face disruption on multiple fronts, the digital strategies companies have relied on in the past will no longer provide the flexibility and adaptability needed.
In today’s fast-evolving world, digital transformation has become synonymous with business success and growth. Organisations are quickly becoming functional innovation hubs and advocating a culture of technology-led change. They’re also investing in tailored digital solutions to bolster their business processes and interactions with partners, customers, and employees.
When innovation becomes culture, we can solve old challenges and create new opportunities. Discover how to build strategies for your organisation that connect people, tools, and intelligence to bring ideas to life.
Achieving speed to market with innovative digital solutions
An essential competitive advantage for many organisations is accelerating time to market, which can grow market share, propel success, and increase revenues. Organisations, by increasing volume and velocity, can:
▪ Mitigate costs and increase profits
▪ Increase efficiencies across internal and external processes
▪ React faster to market trends to gain more opportunities
▪ Stay one step ahead of your digital competition
- Mitigate costs and increase profits
Forbes’s evidence-based research reveals utilizing AI and big data to reduce costs and increase profits in departments across an organization.
▪ Shipping & Fulfilment
AI has huge potential to change the way supply chains are run by consolidating services, offering an amazing customer experience, and ensuring that businesses know what they pay before they ship.
Companies double down on innovative features like AI that help companies communicate better with their audiences, both Internal & External.
Without addressing your organisation’s marketing team, no discussion of improving department efficiencies is complete. Marketing and AI go together when it comes to improving the ROI for your marketing dollars. Reducing cost acquisition directly correlates to the number of sales a company can make, which in turn results in increasing their profits to scale their business
Understanding market data is key to scaling forward and pinpointing different hooks and angles that speak best to your target audience. A robust data and customer behaviour analysis system is one of the most effective ways to reduce costs and increase profits. On average, companies utilising data optimisation and enhancing their marketing with AI see a growth of 3-4x their ad spend and increase their bottom line with more accuracy.
Depending on the nature of your company and the industries you operate in, there may be a long list of innovations to make about labour costs, overhead expenses, direct procurement costs, indirect procurement costs, stock inventories, overdue receivables, etc. To cut costs and improve profits, we stop here and innovate.
Increase efficiencies across internal and external processes
Organisations must meet the challenge of making internal business processes external. In modern times, organisations use sophisticated systems to help them run their operations internally. With the advent of globalisation also comes the need for organisations to bring business partners into their systems to complete an operation.
Consider the supply chain, where a company might have to certify hundreds of suppliers for interactive communications and data exchanges for the build of a new product.
To link outside firms into their ERP systems. With these systems, certifying the security and correctness of data exchanges with even a single vendor can be an iterative process that can take months to complete. Security and governance as top-of-the-list requirements for any externally facing business process.
Innovating using technology first, Organisations will create a successful formula for deploying external business processes that allow collaboration amongst their internal business process to boost productivity.
React faster to market trends to gain more opportunities
Everything changes. Organisations worldwide see their daily operations transformed by increasing customer behaviour changes. It would help if you were informed enough to respond to these changes to ensure your business can handle the harsh reality of change. To thrive forward in any industry, you must have the ability to react fast to market changes and challenges.
The shorter time to market, the more competitive advantage a company gets. No matter how brilliant your idea is, if it takes more time to bring your IT project to life, there is a higher chance your rivals will pull ahead of you and surprise your target audience with a similar good much earlier.
A shorter time to market doesn’t require additional expenses and may cost the same, more or less, than a longer TTM. Higher revenues often accompany faster TTM.
The faster and more easily your organisation operates on a modern cloud platform, the sooner it can experience the benefits of responding quickly to market demands & trends and gain first-mover opportunities.
Stay one step ahead of your digital competition
The pandemic drove consumers online like never before, as people turned to digital channels to buy everything from groceries to education.
Organisations need to create trust in their digital services when it comes to online security and protecting customer privacy. To focus on user experience that will help digital users with enough information about your products and services when making high-ticket or complicated purchases online. To improve customer journey put the tool in customers’ hands to accomplish everything online with chat through an online agent as part of their customer journey to influence their buying.
The mantra is very simple to focus on and drives by looking from within to refine your organisation’s products and services to fit market trends and consumers’ unarticulated needs.
