Customer Engagement Platforms

What Is a Customer Engagement Platform?

Today, customers engage with companies through multiple channels: social media, live chat, messaging apps, email, phone, and more. That behavior is pushing businesses to adopt an omnichannel strategy when it comes to customer engagement. Doing so ensures that companies offer personalized and high-quality experience regardless of the channel customers use to communicate with brands.

However, adopting that omnichannel approach can be quite challenging, mainly because customer engagement varies depending on the platform customers use. Fortunately, companies can use customer engagement platforms to simplify the process. A customer engagement platform is software that aids in managing, analyzing, and optimizing the connections with customers across different channels.

A customer engagement platform allows companies to centralize their customer data in a single place and lets them deliver highly personalized experiences based on different variables like the customer’s device, their purchasing story, their social media activity, or the message on a support ticket.

Why Does Your Business Need a Sales Engagement Platform?

There’s a specific type of customer engagement platform that allows companies to sophisticate the way they sell their products and services with an omnichannel approach: sales engagement platforms. Through them, sales teams can better connect with clients, leads, and prospects.

What you can do with a sales engagement platform includes:

  • Research prospects
  • Track data from clients, leads, and prospects
  • Reach people interested in your products or services through their preferred channels
  • Set meetings
  • Automate sales-related communications
  • Streamline your sales process

That’s precisely why your business needs a sales engagement platform: because you can adopt a more straightforward and scalable approach to the way your company sells your products and services. Besides, these platforms allow you to ditch manual selling methods in favor of an automated, data-driven approach that can boost your sales and increase your revenue. 

Different Customer Engagement Solutions for Your Company

Though customer engagement platforms tend to combine features to cover all the possible channels for communicating with your clients, the reality is that they might be too huge for what you need for your business. That’s why it’s important for you to know that there are multiple customer engagement solutions available that are simpler and have a narrower scope.

The most notorious include the following:

  • Email and messaging solutions
  • Chatbots
  • Interactive video applications
  • Self-service portals
  • Print-to-digital tools
  • Digital archiving platforms

Ideally, you’d adopt all these digital engagement platforms to cover all the possible channels through which your prospects, leads, and clients can reach you. However, your business might not need all of them, which is why it’s important for you to understand your audience and their engagement habits to identify which of these solutions is best suited to your organization.

That’s not all. You should also think about whether an off-the-shelf solution will be enough to cover your business requirements or if you’ll need a more customized platform. The former is a good alternative for smaller companies that have a rather straightforward customer engagement process. A customized customer engagement solution is the better fit for larger organizations, as it can better fit tailor-made processes and provide more personalized features.
