Most businesses require the aid of customer communications management, or CCM software, to handle large volumes of customer documents. Using a platform that allows for mass creation, production, and distribution of these, companies from all different types of industries have dramatically improved the fluidity and efficiency of their customer correspondences.

The adoption of these comprehensive solutions has provided numerous benefits to organizations, but let’s take a look at five of the key benefits CCM software can provide for your company.

What’s the REAL Value of Customer Satisfaction?

This should come as no surprise to you, but it’s worth keeping in mind: when your customers are unhappy with the service you’re providing, that lack of satisfaction will lead them to your competitors. You know customer satisfaction is important, though, so why read any further? You’ve got this, right? Right?

Just because you know something is important doesn’t mean you know exactly WHY it’s important. Not having the right information could seriously put a financial drain on your company. There are so many different aspects of customer engagement, providing a great customer experience – which leads to a high-level of customer satisfaction – might not be as easy as you might think.

What is Customer Communications Management?

You’ve probably heard the phrase or acronym many times in meetings. You might have even looked it up on Google to see what it was and got a somewhat rudimentary answer. It seems rather self explanatory though, doesn’t it? Customer communications management … it’s just the management of customer communications. See, easy. Yeah, you know it’s not that simple. So, then, what is customer communications management?

At its core, CCM — there’s that acronym — IS the management of customer communications, but it’s more than that.

Effective communication will reduce the friction experienced by your customers. But, your problem isn’t that you don’t want to communicate, it’s overcoming the challenges associated with implementing an effective communication process. That is what Ecrion’s products are all about.

Using Customer Information for a Better Customer Experience

The most-savvy organizations are thinking about enterprise data differently and gaining a competitive advantage by combining workflows in different areas. By turning to innovative platforms that integrate advanced reporting and BI visualizations in new and logical ways, companies are utilizing the same enterprise data to dynamically populate communications and power BI analytics to create a better customer experience.

The real value of customer communications management (CCM) systems with integrated BI lies not only in the way outputs are created, but more so in the strength, accessibility, and impact your communications have both internally and externally.

How Customer Relationship Defines Your Business

A company is nothing without its customers, and so a company’s success depends on delivering more of whatever attracted the customer in the first place. In the past, a quality product or service might have functioned as the sole gateway to a long, healthy customer relationship. Today, successful engagement requires a company to run on all cylinders with stellar service, an engaging brand, and a personal touch.

Building advocates is more than a matter of getting people to stand by your product. CCM meets the need for your business to also connect to crowds and individual audiences. All of these are of utmost importance to customer advocacy and revenue growth, a powerful triad for business success.

Better Customer Engagement Creates Better Employee Engagement

The success of your business relies on your customers. That’s easy to understand — no customers, no business. Better customer engagement helps to build a stronger relationship between your business and your customers. Did you know employee engagement is just as important as customer engagement?

There is a great deal of research to show how, no matter the industry, customer satisfaction is deeply connected to greater employee satisfaction, and vice versa. While there are a number of customer engagement solutions out there, they might not address the cornerstone of an engaging customer experience – that is, employees who know the mission, armed with the tools to accomplish a better customer engagement.
