Customer AX fluidity & Digital CS

Customer-centric Automations training starts 4-March.

Over the past few years, customers' Appropriate Experience (AX) shifted, welcoming a blend of synchronous interactions with self-service, asynchronous, and automated engagements.

Even traditionally "high-touch" customer segments now embrace automation and AI as part of their AX.

This evolution in AX offers a chance to adopt more self-service and automated solutions, aligning with current trends towards operational efficiency.

This program is practical in every sense of the word. Our Impact Academy programs are a...

“My CSMs are too busy to do Advocacy, Lincoln.” “So pile even more onto my overworked CSMs? Umm, No.” I’ve heard the same for Expansion, Renewal, etc. Weird how their CSMs are too busy to do things like Advocacy or Expansion but not too busy to: Do the work for the customer Work escalated support tickets Train individual users Answer the same questions over and over Have meetings when they’re not necessary Have super-inefficient meetings And so much more nonsense Saying their CSMs are "too...
