Customer data management streamlines how your call center’s information is gathered, stored, protected, and used. Effective management enhances customer satisfaction and complies with all laws and regulations regarding the collection, use, and storage of personal information.
Your call center likely has many technology applications that leverage caller data. These data sources are used to drive user insights and engagements.
Integrating, managing, analyzing, leveraging, and protecting data is required to gain insights and deliver personalized customer experiences. These processes help your company maintain its competitive edge.
Follow these three tips to elevate your customer data management.
1. Create Unique Identifiers
Assign a customer ID or other unique identifier to use with all of your systems.
- An identifier lets you provide customers the omnichannel experiences they expect.
- Tracking will be available for each customer.
- Analysts can associate each customer data point in any system.
- This process leads to more accurate analysis and a more complete understanding of user behavior.
- Customers can move among the channels and still receive personalized offers and experiences.
2. Use Technical Tools
A unified call center platform with analytics powered by artificial intelligence (AI) can deliver personalized omnichannel experiences.
- Proper integration of applications from different providers is required to properly manage customer data.
- These applications may include automatic call distributor (ACD), interactive voice response (IVR), workforce management (WFM), and digital and voice channels.
- The cross-channel interaction provides agents with relevant context and history to create seamless omnichannel experiences.
- The integration should prevent customers from having to repeat information to get the help they need.
AI creates the ability to analyze customer service interactions and provide meaningful information for the entire call center.
- Engagement analytics tools can analyze these interactions from voice and digital channels.
- The analytics provide insights into customer sentiment, contact drivers, and trending topics.
- Agents can use the information to help customers.
- Other departments can use the information to improve product features, marketing campaigns, and other areas that impact the customer experience.
3. Implement a Customer Success Program
A customer success program predicts and proactively addresses customer needs and questions.
- This program helps customers get the most from your company’s products or services.
- The ability to predict user needs is based on data and requires AI analysis tools.
- The tools provide an integrated view of operations and customers.
- This picture allows for fast adaptation to changing customer preferences and expectations to optimize the customer experience.
- A data-driven customer success program lets your company tailor the customer journey.
Implementation of a customer success program provides the following benefits:
- Standardized customer data across your company.
- Establishment of a single view of customer data from all business systems.
- Leveraging data to measure customer experiences at all stages of the customer journey.
- The potential for increased earnings, higher lifetime customer value, net promoter score (NPS), and employee commitment.
- Potentially lower service costs.
