Customer experience is the perception customers have of their overall interactions with an organization, and customer service is part of customer experience. So, every customer service interaction is critical, as it contributes to building the entire customer experience.
We are seeing a rapid change in consumer behavior and customer expectations that need to be addressed quickly as well. However, it is essential to understand how people process experiences in order to comprehend customer experience.
Perceptions are formed based on three (3) elements:
1. Success: The degree to which customers can achieve their goals.
2. Effort: How easy or hard it is for the customer.
3. Emotion: How does it make the customer feel?
Technology can help hugely in supporting the mission of each element, and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Service offers just that.
It is a business app within the Microsoft Dynamics 365 ecosystem and one of the customer engagement applications created for CS Automation that provides a wide range of features and capabilities, including built-in intelligence, to deliver faster, more personalized service and add value to every interaction.
