Automation Will Enable CX Leaders to Drive Action from a Unified View of Feedback from Across the Entire Customer Journey
Verint Systems Inc., The Customer Engagement Company, announced the launch of the industry’s first comprehensive, enterprise-wide view of the voice of the customer, now a cornerstone of its expanding Voice of Customer VoC) strategy. Tailored to serve the unique needs of CX leaders, Verint Unified VoC* provides a complete view of direct, indirect and inferred VoC from across key customer engagement channels with a powerful, automated analytics engine to deliver actionable insights. These insights empower organizations to prioritize and act upon the CX initiatives that deliver the most significant financial impact.
“VoC programs are still too focused on surveys, squander unstructured and unsolicited feedback, lack full data integration, and struggle to prove business value.”
According to a November 2018 Market Guide for the Voice-of-the-Customer from Gartner, “the ability to collect direct feedback through traditional email, web and/or mobile surveys is now standard and organizations should seek to collect, combine and interpret other forms of direct feedback with indirect feedback and inferred feedback. They then turn that data into alerts, reports, customized dashboards and business-rule-based actions, and get the right information to the right people at the right time.”
Similarly, Forrester’s 2019 research, charting top VoC trends, highlights sharing VoC data throughout an organization, a focus on unstructured and unsolicited customer interaction data, integrating VoC and operational data, embedded prioritization frameworks, and better execution of “closing the loop” among the trending practices that help lead to best-in-class VoC programs. The report further notes “VoC programs are still too focused on surveys, squander unstructured and unsolicited feedback, lack full data integration, and struggle to prove business value.”
