Carving a niche through simplification

CSS Corp believes that CX will be the biggest differentiator for brands today. And people and technology will be key to driving this. One may ask what is the connection between support and CX. Well, support has a huge role to play in enhancing CX. The world is moving to a hyper connected world, which is getting more complex. Connected homes, connected devices and connected cars are no more a myth but a reality. So, what does this mean? It means we have more devices and gadgets that allow us to undertake an activity, achieve multiple tasks and glean from useful, actionable information. They allow us to research, watch, control and monitor.

A connected world is also made up of different components. Each of them, be it utility, health devices, security, tablet or TV & entertainment all have their own support channel working in siloes. This does not help when you encounter a problem with any one device in your connected home or connected enterprise. So, the question that arise is what role can support play in making this inter connected world work seamlessly and in tandem to ensure that we leverage the true potential of technology.

The ecosystem needs a common support pipe or channel that can ensure consistent experiences in every interaction. For example a 1800 number that customers can contact across different channels– be it email, voice, social or online, but is able to deliver a consistent experience. This is of paramount importance.

CSS Corp can be that support partner that can create a continuous service experience that exceeds consumer expectations. Their experience of supporting over 1000 products can bring about integrationby breaking down product and technology silos. Moreover, the company continues to invest in service lines, technologies and IPs, that will simplify the IT landscape. All of these contributes to higher customer value and brand loyalty.

CSS Corp’s Digital Business Services offers a comprehensive portfolio of services that maps across all aspects of consulting, design, implementation and ongoing management. This enables the company to serve as a true end-to-end capability partner entirely focused on business outcomes – high QoS, faster turn around and lower costs. The result is a digital solution that is efficient, agile and secure, while striking a balance between flexibility and cost, facilitating innovation and future business planning.
