The global pandemic set the stage for something many of us weren’t ready to deal with on any level. Stay-at-home orders and quarantines tested people’s limits, requiring them to adapt to a new way of life. According to one survey, at least 35 percent of employers have noticed an increase in mental health support because of their employees’ social isolation and economic anxiety. With so many people feeling overwhelmed and worried about what happens next, it’s critical to remember the start of the pandemic meant the end of “business as usual.”
As we embark on the “new normal,” how you engage and communicate with customers will be more crucial than ever. Consumers now expect a customer experience that is genuine, seamless, and memorable.
When Organizations Prioritize Digital Transformation
With health and safety being a top priority, many organizations had to make the conscious decision to accelerate their digital transformation initiatives to support a new environment—one that delivers a consistent experience on all communications channels. What does this new environment look like for consumers? Depends on who you ask.
For healthcare, it looks like a private medical practice that provides a telehealth service for patients, saving physical office visits for when it matters most. Looking for a quick online health check to stay hyper-vigilant against COVID-19? Healthcare providers with easy survey portals not only lend a service to their consumers but also collect valuable data for themselves.
For retailers, it’s the convenience and joy a consumer gains from shopping online for a new pair of shoes, a video game, or cosmetics. And even more satisfying, the text notification a consumer receives when it’s time to pick up their purchases using the retailer’s drive-up service. Need something delivered within the hour or the next day? Last-mile delivery is faster than ever. There’s little chance of surprises or late deliveries when logistics companies use technology that’s built with communications APIs, keeping both retailers and consumers up-to-date on their delivery status.
And for education, it’s the accelerated transition from physical to virtual classrooms, with increased demand from students of every age in their quest for personal and professional development. The classroom door now opens for students from a mobile device, tablet, or laptop. Anytime and anywhere learning means security and scalability are more important than ever.
