How Artificial Intelligence can transform customer service

According to Forrester, 72% of businesses say that improving the customer experience is their top priority. A popular study from NewVoiceMedia says that companies lose more than $62 billion due to poor customer service.

Even with improvements in customer support technologies, most customers find it frustrating to get the right service in quick time from the customer support executives. High quality of customer service has become mandatory for companies, as today’s customers can take to the Internet to complain about service brands.

The use of AI technologies can transform the customer service operations, while reducing operation costs and meeting customer expectations. AI enables convergence of human-centric and machine centric intelligence resulting in improved business agility, operational excellence, resilience and bring about better customer service experiences. Google is pushing the use of cloud-based AI platforms for its customer service. According to Gartner, non-voice interactions in customer support is likely to rise from 55% in 2015 to 85% by the year 2020.

Marketing Changes Faster Than Lady Gaga’s Outfits

With plenty of talent available, there is a dire need to employ the right one and subsequently, the need of marketing the brand effectively. Top CEOs and marketers share their insight about acquiring and retaining customers as well as employees.

The CEOs and Marketers vision over hiring valuable talent is transforming with time as introduction of new technology and techniques dominate the marketing landscape. The HR Talent Acquisition Summit hosted by BW People gathered a combination of both HR and marketing heads, the two key departments that work very closely in an organization.

With a lively moderator, Pankaj Dutt, Managing Partner, Alexander Hughes, the session saw interaction among top HR leaders and marketing heads on the theme of Hiring Valuable Talent.

Satyen Vyas, CEO, Symphony SUMMIT initiated the discussion by saying, “There is plenty of talent available but the challenge is to find the right one. Don’t look for people when you need them. Instead, look for them when you don’t need them. Meet them and keep your search on all the time. Acquiring and retaining are two different things when it comes to customers and also when it comes to employees, retaining remains a big challenge.

Followed by Kushal Agarwal, Co-founder, XOXO who represented the start-up culture said, “The chaos in the start-up environment was exciting. Earlier, it was under the name of employee engagement. But it is a mess now. People walk in and ask for job description these days.

Shantanu Das, CHRO of Amway India talking about the employee engagement in direct sales said, “The entire game of direct selling has changed for us. Initial step is to engage your own people and then is to engage an entire sales force of about 200,000 people who have become entrepreneurs and are promoting and selling our products. The senior leadership should spend time in doing this. Engagement of the entire sales force is the fulcrum of our business.

Suchita Vishnoi, Director of Marketing, Salesforce spoke about the influence of technology in this process of recruitment and said, “Technology is impacting all of us. It is best to embrace it. New employees who walk into an organization and the existing employees should adapt with it and make the best of it.

About 5 years back, most of the jobs present today didn’t even exist. Recruitment happens when millennial and students find you as an interesting company. About 1 per cent of all the branding that we do goes into attracting talent. In that way, we actually face more competition from startups,” said Kisha Gupta, Global Head of Academic relations, Infosys Limited.

Vivian Gomes, VP, marketing and inside sales, CSS Corps speaking his viewpoint from a marketer’s standpoint said, “If you want to do marketing, you better learn to change as marketing changes faster than Lady Gaga’s outfits. In marketing, people need to break those shackles of sameness and bring in freshness.

Billa Bhandari, COO, Geneva Graduate School of Governance sharing his insight said, “You should understand what governance is. Lots of companies have such wonderful policies. People don’t understand the risk of governance in this part of the country.

Shraddhanjali Rao, Head of Human Resources, SAP India speaking her mind about the role of a leader in the present scenario said, “You can’t have a CEO to be a voice person. You won’t be attractive then. Technology is changing and we can’t control that. What we can control is the quality of people getting into an organization. This should be done by every leader across the organization. Not just the CEO.

Being the last panelist on this panel, Shridhar Marri, CEO, Senseforth said, “We do not have JDs in our organization. Because these are not just jobs but purposes. Before people were on the lookout for job stability but now they want more engagement. A very large chunk of people are disengaged now. People want to come to work for a purpose these days.

Six Cloud Trends That are Making Waves in 2017

As CIOs and IT leaders rely on the cloud to grow their businesses, new trends and innovations will continue to emerge and reshape the future.
Cloud is no longer a buzzword that is only popular in big businesses, but, has trickled down to the masses. It is woven in our everyday lives, in the way we communicate, listen to music, watch movies, and store or share our data. Cloud has also dramatically transformed the way business is conducted. Recent studies have shown that businesses employing cloud services improve their productivity and grow 19.6% faster than those that don’t.

The digital economy we operate in, marks the boundless growth of new age technologies such as IoT, big data, real-time data capturing and analytics, and on-demand services. In this aggressively competitive scenario, cloud provides a conducive environment to create a lean, flexible, and responsive digital eco-system that is required to navigate the rough tides of the connected world.

Here are some key cloud trends that impact IT strategies in 2017 for organizations looking to deploy cloud services:

1. Cloud 2.0

A new era in cloud technology has begun. From ‘cloud first’, companies are moving to ‘cloud only’. As per IDC Chief Analyst Frank Gens, cloud implementation is “moving beyond experimentation towards mass enterprise adoption.” Cloud 2.0 is about doing more with the data that is stored in the cloud- analyzing the patterns in data, identifying anomalies and drawing insights. According to Diane Greene, Senior VP of Google’s cloud businesses, organizations should reflect on the question, “Now that you’re in the cloud, how do you take advantage of it so that your business can operate at a whole new level?” Powered by Machine Learning and intelligent analytics, Cloud 2.0 is moving from mere storage to data analysis and more.

2. Cloud Containers

It is believed that the use of cloud containers will become more widespread. The portability, flexibility, and cost-efficiency in operations that containers enable, are the reasons for their increasing popularity. According to cloud experts, containers will be used for deploying solutions to solve real-world business problems. Companies will use them to provide new services that are secure, efficient, elastic, and scalable.

3. Cloud Microservices

Harnessing the real potential of cloud is possible through the use of microservices architecture. Cloud microservices is used for creating new applications, as well as for utilizing existing ones. This is especially useful for companies migrating to the cloud, which can create microservices around existing applications, thereby easing the transition. When combined with containers, microservices can bring to the forefront, the features of scalability, re-usability, and resilience that cloud promotes.

4. Cloud APIs

Cloud Application Programmer Interfaces (APIs) are becoming increasingly customer-centric. Being consumer focused is having a positive impact on their quality, maturity and scalability rate. Event economy (If This Then That), web automation, and digital transformation are fueling the growth of cloud APIs, as APIs help in the adoption and development of automation for businesses and consumers. APIs are playing a vital role in business because of their ability to integrate platforms and apps. They are able to remove barriers to revenue growth by facilitating the swift launch and scalability of business models.

5. Server-less Computing

Server-less Computing is a key trend that is bound to grow as it requires far fewer infrastructure resources and eases the load on developers. As the adoption of ‘Function-as-a-service’ increases, server-less computing will rise to support the shift from DevOps (scripted automation) to NoOps (intelligent operations). In line with AI, analytics, and automation, server-less computing will contribute to the creation and use of smarter machines that save time, effort, and money.

6. Cloud Security

Security still remains a concern for companies moving to the cloud, though, there is an increase in the number of organizations that are transitioning. In order to ease their worries, data security in the cloud will have to step up. The cloud is expected to be a strong provider of security as a fundamental offering. Storage options, flexibility, easy deployment, and scalability are features of the cloud that enable it to ensure complete safety of data.

Impact of Cloud Trends 2017

The trends affect multiple aspects of business – growth, cost, revenue, customer experience, and ability to innovate. As these aspects tend to be interconnected, we have examined the impact on the following key factors:

1. Enhanced Customer Experience

Cloud 2.0, being the era of data analytics, real-time intelligence, AI, automation, and machine learning, will enable organizations to understand customers and provide a seamless experience across multiple channels. E-commerce, loyalty programs, and on-demand support are examples of cloud services that aid in providing superior customer experience.

2. Reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

On account of being virtual, cloud is more cost efficient than physical infrastructure. Cloud technologies such as server-less computing are bound to reduce costs even further while increasing the organization’s productivity and efficiency. Also, the benefits of agility, flexibility, and scalability that the cloud provides, have long-term impact on optimizing costs.

3. Improved Agility and Business Intelligence (BI)

Cloud APIs help in the faster implementation of business models and their scalability. This means businesses can quickly respond to changes in the market using innovative strategies. Additionally, companies can draw actionable insights by processing and analyzing raw data in the cloud. These insights prove to be a solid base for developing innovative products, services, and solutions.

Leveraging Cloud to Grow your Business

As clearly indicated by the above trends, while there are immense benefits in moving to the cloud, jumping onto the cloud bandwagon without proper knowledge or guidance is far from a prudent business move. For companies to remain updated, relevant, and competitive in a world that is dominated by rapidly evolving technology, they need to have a strategic cloud framework in place that is agile, efficient, and flexible. Partnering with the right solution providers can give companies that edge.

The Road Ahead

As CIOs and IT leaders rely on the cloud to grow their businesses, new trends and innovations will continue to emerge and reshape the future. The use of hybrid models of public and private clouds will become the norm, as organizations use multiple different providers for specific services. Further, companies will have to invest in training the workforce to augment their cloud skills and incubate newer technologies.

CSS Corp wins NASSCOM customer service excellence award 2017

CSS Corp, a new-age IT services and technology support company, has been named as the winner of the Customer Service Excellence Award 2017 by NASSCOM, India’s premier IT industry body.

CSS Corp emerged as a leader in the transformation category for its proven capabilities in creating additional revenue generation opportunities for clients globally through its proprietary tech support and analytics platforms.

The NASSCOM Customer Service Excellence Awards – 2017 were given out on October 12th, 2017 at their prestigious BPM Summit 2017 to recognize innovations by organizations that deliver highly personalized, outcome driven and revenue focused services to their customers.

CSS Corp has been redefining customer engagement by focusing on enabling customers in generating additional revenue streams by leveraging new-age technologies to understand customer behavior. CSS Corp’s REAP (Revenue Enablement and Profitability) Framework – Growth Navigator Suite offers a gamut of modular solutions covering Premium Tech Support, As a Service Model, White Labeled Managed Services and Professional Services.

It is really heartening to see the pledge that the companies in the industry have taken towards enhancing business delivery for clients; today companies are working towards creating processes and leveraging new technologies to increase the delivery quotient of their customers. This trend will go a long way, helping firms in leveraging the technologies they invent today to ensure business sustainability in the future. Out of the 115 submissions received from 54 firms across the BPM industry, firms were adjudged on the parameters of Co-Creation, Process Improvements, Return on investment and Transformation, NASSCOM would like to congratulate all the companies who were felicitated as part of the same,” said chairman NASSCOM, Raman Roy.

We are thrilled to be recognized by NASSCOM. It is another indicator of our capabilities and positioning that helps drive unique value creation for and along with our clients. For the past 50 years, the primary focus of majority of large outsourcing contracts has always been to reduce cost, automate back-office business processes & manage IT remotely. Driving revenue for customers has been farfetched. IT vendors seldom discuss solutions whose value proposition is around helping customers generate new and additional revenue streams,” said chief executive officer CSS Corp, Manish Tandon.

At CSS Corp, we have created a compelling framework with innovative commercial models and engagement strategies that enable our clients to generate additional revenue and significantly reduce costs involved in managing support operations,” he added.

At CSS Corp, our mission is to consistently deliver high on customer requirements, while creating opportunity for additional revenue streams.

Demystifying the Digital Workplace

Digital is playing a significant role in disrupting workplaces.

What does the word ‘Workplace’ mean? The word has different meanings, for the baby boomer generation it is the traditional office set-up – meeting rooms, office desks and office phones. For  today’s generation, particularly the millennial, expected response would be centered around digital touch points, virtual personal assistants, tablets, SaaS based productivity tools, unified communication, chat, smartphones or instant messaging.

This article discusses how the digital workplace, along with consumerization of IT and new age technologies is changing the dynamics of today’s workplace.

Transforming the Workplace Digitally

Digital is prompting organizations across industries to reimagine their workplace strategies for better business success as the correlation between employee engagement and business performance is becoming increasingly relevant. Digital is playing a significant role in disrupting workplaces.

Today’s digital workplace is an always connected environment that enables faster and instant access to everything an employee needs. The digital workplace promotes employee collaboration, engagement and innovation through a consumer-like computing experience. Consumerization of IT and convergence of mobile technologies with social computing is changing the workplace dynamics. Proper planning, overall strategy, roadmap and execution are all linked to overall productivity and agility of the employees along with work engagement is required for a Digital Workplace.

Reimagining the Workplace with Digital

Generation Z, the demographic cohorts after the Millennials, are expected to enter the workforce in large numbers in the next few years. They, as consumers, expect personalized, user and persona based support solutions for their connected devices. To engage effectively with this demographic group, enterprises will need accelerate innovation and build a better workplace of tomorrow.

Here are the key trends that are driving the transition from the traditional workforce to a digital workforce:

Digital Dexterity

Digital dexterity is an organization’s ability to self-organize and adapt to evolving digital technologies in order to deliver more value to the customer. It is the level of adaptability to new technologies, evolving customer and market expectations, along with optimum resource allocation.

Digital Collaboration

Thanks to increasing consumerisation of IT technology and devices, an increasing number of digital workers are expecting the same ease of use with their work-related technology and tools, as any of their consumer related experiences (such as online shopping) in their personal lives.

Digital Innovation

The dynamic pace of the modern work environment means that employees must learn to adopt collaboration and productivity tools to get their work done easily and faster. The dependence on connected and collaboration devices has further accelerated the change, which is challenging for employers to meet the growing demands.

Device-Centric to a User-Centric Model

A revolution is occurring in today’s workplace. Personalization and consumerisation of employee engagement through digital has increasingly changed the way people work. With the continuous evolution of the workplace and employee expectations, businesses that do not adopt a digital workplace strategy, face the maximum risk with regards to employee engagement.

Digital Business Enablement

The digital workplace along with the supporting technology tools can transform information technology from a support-based function to a business-enabling function.

The digital workplace can provide the following business benefits through proper implementation:

Revenue Generation: Every day, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data — so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone. Digital applications can enable sales and marketing professionals to find the right resources and identify product up-selling or cross-selling opportunities for their customers. The rise of digital analytics tools, which involves the analysis of business data, can be used to drive a continuous improvement of the online experience for customers

Productivity Improvements: Improved workplace tools can save employee time and improve productivity. The implementation of a comprehensive digital workplace strategy can enable knowledge workers in their daily tasks through collaboration, communication, connection, and delivery

Improve the Customer Experience (CX): The use of data analytics tools and customer insights is critical for an organization to track their customer’s digital footprints. Structured customer data can provide valuable information on the type of transacting customers, the categories of products purchased, and the market demand for a product line. The CX factor can be managed effectively using digital analytics

Employee Augmentation

The optimum use of digital technologies can augment the capabilities of employees, particularly in the retail sector. Some of the trends that are helping employees include:

Cognitive technologies – to observe and analyze human work, and delegate common or routine work to digital assistants

Physical technologies – including advanced robotic technologies, which are compact and suitable to be integrated in any human workflow environment

Collaborative technologies – including software tools that can improve how product developers can create new products

Conclusion

Workplace innovation is critical to any business success, and depends on the business integration of emerging technologies that are appearing in the market. Emerging innovations in digital product technology can be integrated into the organization’s workplace strategy, after assessment of their business value.

The digital workplace has added differentiating value to the highly-competitive market, which has experienced new needs including mobility, seamless integration across technology devices, and global collaboration. With the rise of cloud-based services, the digital workplace is poised to become the new normal for providing new digital services to the customers, which cannot be delivered through traditional delivery modes.
