Today’s omni-channel consumer expects a seamless journey across both physical and digital channels. Personalization and real-time, always on experiences are a core demand for consumers who expect that each and every experience delivers value to their unique journey.
But this expectation has shone a harsh spotlight onto two critical players in the omni-channel experience: the brands creating these connected engagements and the communication service providers upon whose networks these experiences rely.
The increasing imperative for omni-channel engagements has created an imperative for new partnerships between telecommunications providers and brands, establishing new opportunities for telcos to emerge as the “secret ingredient” to dynamic brand engagements.
