There’s no denying that digital is king. With recent events keeping employees and consumers close to home, digital interactions continue to climb across all areas of life. Remote work, E-learning, and online shopping continue to grow to the delight of organizations and institutions who’ve anticipated these digital engagements. Yet, despite many industries delivering improved response times during the pandemic, over half of the consumers (52 percent)1 still expect better brand engagement, especially in banking, telco, and online retail.
Providing more engaging digital interactions through online apps and services can fortify one’s brand, increase customer satisfaction, and directly affect the revenue stream for just about any company across every industry. In fact, a delighted customer contributes 2.6 times as much revenue as a somewhat satisfied customer2 and 14 times as much revenue as a dissatisfied customer3.

Your ability to quickly adapt your organization’s infrastructure and resources to your customer’s evolving needs is the hallmark of digital agility.
