Forrester analyst endorses numero CRM solution

William Band, the Vice President and Principal Analyst at global research firm Forrester, has called for organisations to embrace new channels in an effort to ‘domesticate’ emerging customer platforms.
Writing on the official Forrester blog, Band commented:

“Companies are moving from isolated business process management (BPM) and/or front-office customer relationship management (CRM) projects toward broader transformation initiatives across the organization. At the core of this trend is a desire by these organizations, especially in services industries, to domesticate their “untamed” or “invisible” processes that touch customers.”

Band’s comments come as a new survey from A.T. Kearney found that 70 per cent of complaints made to businesses on social media channels such as Twitter or Facebook were ignored. The survey also discovered that between five and 20 per cent of all enquiries to organisations were made through these web platforms.

The growing popularity of new contact channels such as social media has led to increasing demand for organisations to provide a viable customer management service across these platforms. Over 12,233 tweets are sent every second across Twitter. The greatest challenge facing organisations is how to categorise, prioritise and manage the massive amount of interaction now flooding in via the web and mobile, while also maintaining standards across more traditional channels like phone and email.

Writing about this emerging business challenge, Forrester’s William Band singled out the numero platform as an example of a cutting-edge CRM solution designed to meet the constantly evolving behaviour of the customer. Writing on the Forrester website, Band noted:

“I’ve just finished up several months of research digging into the best practices of how leading organizations aspire to implement outside-in, customer-focused, cross-functional processes that transform the organization and set it on the path toward continuous improvement.

“The solution [numero interactive] delivers a single agent desktop built on a strong BPM and content management platform.”
