Brief us on why businesses should invest in ‘customer engagement’?
Customer engagement start at brand discovery and connection and extend through service, feedback, and loyalty. Investing in customer engagement, especially in digitalization, should aim at creating a seamless, simple, and integrated customer experience. This enables effective presence and discovery, smoother conversions, reliable and high quality fulfillment, better after-sales service, and loyalty. Customer engagement thus banks on a range of systems which need to be integrated and aligned to the goal of customer success. Critical, as it is for a business’s survival and growth, this requires continuous investment and innovation.
How technology consulting and implementation services provide digital transformation solutions?
Advaiya’s consulting and implementation services help organizations grow faster and become more profitable by implementing strategic changes with the help of technology.
The digital transformation journey involves defining a strategy for a business that is aligned with technology’s potential and then creating a road map for implementing the same. This has to be followed by a diligent and high-quality implementation which should drive technology adoption as well as monetization for a company.
As the digital infrastructure grows, the potential for newer insights, creativity, and better decisions gets realized. Any organization would, at this point, see many more opportunities for intelligent automation.
Hence, we believe in the 4I approach of consulting and implementation, that is, information strategy, implementation, insights, and intelligence, as key for successful digital transformation.
What are the challenges that service industry should look out for?
With services vertical as our focus, we realized that the key characteristics of such businesses, especially from the point of view of the digital transformation perspective, include the importance of customer engagement, work management, and people productivity. These challenges can be overcome with the right set of solutions that automate redundant work, increase collaboration, enable digital agility and rapid upskilling, which are critical for services organizations today. Creating value and introducing a business model transformation, along with the need to improve resource utilization should drive technology adoption. Thus, services businesses should aim at implementing solutions that enable better insights, increased productivity, easy work management, and informed decision-making.
What are the future plans?
Advaiya is on target to more than double its value creation in the next 12 months. We believe that there is an enormous opportunity for service organizations to adopt newer and more innovative technologies and achieve more.
