Delivering personalized customer experience remains the top business challenge for communications
service providers (CSPs). Ovum's recently published 2018 ICT Enterprise survey saw almost all CSP
IT executives interviewed identify delivering personalized customer experience as one of their three
most important business challenges for the next 18 months. This trend emphasizes the high priority
CSPs place on how customer relationships are managed. However, several factors have an impact on
CSPs' ability to identify and then deliver customers' core needs. These include understanding the data
sets they should focus on; collecting, cleansing, and consolidating these data sets; and having the
right expertise to mine the data sets.

Businesses must become agile and provide differentiated service as customer demands and expectations change. Moving beyond simple phone transactions, customers are taking matters into their own hands and turning to their peers, the web and social media to find answers. Contact centers play a major role in determining the customer’s perception of a company. Often seen as brand ambassadors, agents are the main interaction point for customers. It is therefore critical that they deliver personalized communications in the channels that customers prefer. Businesses should use cloud technology to add multichannel tools and support growing demand for chat, social, SMS and video.
