In any industry, like financial services, that relies on maintaining deep relationships with their clients, it’s critical to understand and service the client across their entire journey. Successful client experience solutions focus on features across what we call the “The Customer Lifecycle.”

Acquisition is the initial formulation of the relationship. Remember that in the Age of the Customer, the client already knows a lot more about you than you do about them. It’s important to build confidence fast with modern campaign management, both automated and advisor/RM driven, and opportunity management to ensure that you are providing the products and services your client demands.

Once the individual or company is a client, Nurture the relationship. With high levels of client satisfaction, you can now Maximize lifetime value with advanced analytics that recommend cross-sell opportunities and help to guide referrals.
None of this is possible without a comprehensive customer view that includes all information about your client regardless of system, region, or product line that holds the information.
