We founded Centriam with a simple vision: help companies get more value out of data to become more customer centric. I strongly believe that organizations who put effort into understanding customer behavior and act on those insights will have a tremendous competitive advantage over the long run. So our goal has always been to develop tools and solutions that drive a customer-centric culture and enable companies to build deeper customer relationships to improve customer experience.
You are serious about customer experience (CX). You want to collect feedback. You need to learn more about your customers’ pain points and needs so you can increase their loyalty and retention over time. Great! With a high-level strategy in hand, one of the first technology decisions to make is deciding which customer feedback tool to purchase. The most common practice is to utilize a traditional survey tool since there are many to choose from and they are inexpensive. So you pick one, sign up, upload a list of emails, build your survey, send it out, and wait for the responses to come in. And on to the second survey and so on. Mission accomplished. Well … maybe.
The Mall of America delights patrons with a chatbot creating a high-tech, engaging retail customer experience.
With the increase in online shopping and questions whirling around the relevancy of brick and mortar shopping malls, our local retail icon, Mall of America, welcomed a new chatbot named Pepper. The chatbot can not only direct visitors to specific locations within the mall, it can talk about deals and promotions, and even connect them to an actual human being. We connected with Justine Santa Cruz, VP of Partnerships at Satisfi Labs, the company behind the Pepper Robot at Mall of America, to learn about Pepper, artificial intelligence(AI) and its impact on customer experience (CX).
