Customers are more technically savvy than ever and have come to prefer the DIY approach to solving their issues and answering their own questions. Years of research by ICMI has confirmed that customers prefer to resolve issues themselves and within their channels of choice. Furthermore, customers only seek direct interactions when they unsuccessfully exhaust their self-service options. This is backed up by data from American Express, which found that 48% of consumers prefer to speak with a customer service rep when dealing with complex issues, but only 16% prefer the same contact for simple issues. The goal of this paper is simple: We want to help you build an all-in-one knowledge base, community, and customer portal. All of which can be accomplished with a help center like Zendesk Guide.

Cyber attackers are targeting the application programming interfaces (APIs) used by businesses to share data with customers. Consumer mobile adoption, electronic goods and services, and high volumes of data have led businesses to use APIs for data exchange. Unfortunately, attackers can also use APIs to access or deny service to valuable data and systems. This white paper explores strategies for protecting APIs. You’ll learn about APIs, how and why these endpoints are targets for web application attacks, security models, and how Akamai can help.

While many OEMs are aware of new technologies to make machines more energy-efficient, they are reluctant to make changes due to the perception that it will make their machines more expensive to sell. The constraints of cost reduction, usage of resources and energy reduction are becoming key drivers in the industry as consumers require manufacturers to be more “green”. This paper demonstrates how incorporating sustainable design can add value to their machines and differentiate OEMs from the competition.

obile Payments have emerged as a catalyst for transactions across all markets. In underdeveloped markets, mobile payment technology is enabling businesses to sell products and services to consumers that had previously been out of reach. In developed markets, it has made the process of purchasing products and services even simpler. PayPal, one of the most popular digital payment solutions on the market, facilitated $66 billion in payment volume throughout 2015, and now has 188 million active registered user accounts across the US. Furthermore, Statista projects that mobile payments will account for more than $210 billion in transactions by 2019. Mobile payment technology is a step forward in the process of connecting businesses to the people they are serving. However, some merchants will find themselves miles behind their competitors by the time the transition to mobile payments is complete. The reason? A failure to implement the correct mobile payment strategy. An ever-increasing numbe

study by UPS and comScore found that 53% of shoppers who don’t use retailers’ mobile apps state it’s because they like using the website better. These shoppers see no benefit from installing these apps, as they provide an inferior experience with no added benefits. Looking at the Apple and Google Play App Stores, a large amount of retailers have apps with very few reviews, and some don’t even have a mobile app. Another problem is the performance of retail apps. 61% consumers expect an app to load in under 4 seconds according to research by Dynatrace. In its study, only one retailer made it under that threshold. And that is just purely opening the app. What is the experience once consumers get past that point?

In recent years, the legal marketplace has seen an influx of new start-ups and new entrants looking to challenge the long-standing service model offered by law firms to their clients. Traditionally, clients looked to their law firms to provide a full range of legal and legal-related services, i.e., to handle every aspect of a matter, even including those activities that did not involve the direct provision of legal services. Today, by contrast, consumers of legal services find themselves the beneficiaries of a new and growing number of nontraditional service providers that are changing the way legal work is getting done. These alternative providers comprise a new sector of the legal market, one that is emerging and evolving rapidly, but is still very much in its infancy.

OVERVIEW Unilever is a global player in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector, with nearly a third of the world’s population using its products every day. The company has more than 169,000 employees working around the world, and its leaders estimate that within three years, as many as 60 percent of those employees will be Millennials. Critical to Unilever’s ongoing success will be its ability to attract these recent college graduates. For its signature Future Leaders Programme, the company wanted its recruitment efforts to get ahead of the curve. The existing process was rooted in paper-based applications, phone interviews with recruiters, and manual assessment tests. It took four to six months to sift through 250,000 applications and ultimately hire 800 individuals. The company sought to radically transform this process using online gamification, digitally recorded interviews, and science-based assessment tests and data analysis. In this case study, we: • Explain the chal

Creating competitive advantage starts with a sound digital strategy. In a 2017 survey of healthcare consumers across the U.S. from a representative range of demographic groups, we found that 88% of consumers begin their search for healthcare providers online. Consumers rely on search engines and review sites to steer their decisions about where to go for care. What consumers read about you online heavily influences their decision-making. Your reputation is defined at every touchpoint a potential patient has with your doctors and organization on the web — from the doctor or location listing, to patient rating and reviews, to finding the right doctor and reading profiles on your website. Done well, online reputation management (ORM) enables your providers to generate a high volume of representative reviews from the “silent majority,” while providing valuable insights to improve patient experience, make operational improvements and drive new patient appointments.

Brand perception begins online, with the local online reputation of doctors, clinics and hospitals. In late 2017, Reputation.com set out to understand how consumers use the internet to look for healthcare services online, particularly when interacting with healthcare-related ratings and reviews. We surveyed healthcare consumers across the U.S. in a representative range of demographic groups for answers to some key questions: • What are consumers and patients really looking for in online reviews? • What ratings and review factors are most important when choosing a doctor? • What sites are most used and trusted for this information? Findings confirmed that online reviews are an essential part of the healthcare consumer’s decision-making. In this report, we’ll look at the key findings in detail.

In search of the moment when consumer engagement is at its highest, brands have chosen to focus on search and social media. But – as this study proves – the rush of retail therapy is no myth, with the process of shopping making consumers considerably happier and more receptive than other online activities. This report explores the mindset individuals experience when shopping – the Transaction MomentTM. As uncovered in this research, this mindset presents a much sought after and undiscovered opportunity in digital customer acquisition. It has been well documented that the thrill of making a purchase causes a rush1 of dopamine, resulting in a powerful sense of achievement that leaves consumers open to buy again. This conclusion is supported by Rokt analytics — which reveals consumers are up to 7x more likely to engage with related offers in the Transaction Moment. This report and findings are relevant to many in the marketing and e-commerce industry. Whether the objective is to acquire

With so much being done beyond traditional office walls, many insurance companies, financial service organizations and even government agencies are adopting mobile tablets and smartphones as productivity tools for agents, representatives and personnel, and developing enterprise apps for these devices.

In order for brands to compete and provide the level of personalization consumers have already come to expect, marketers need to work quickly to develop competencies around their abilities to collect contextual and anticipatory insight and meet customers in the moments that matter most to them. Now is the time for marketers to invest in technology that supports data capture, segmentation, predictive analytics, and machine learning. With these capabilities in place, brands should be on track to build rich first party profiles of customers across all channels and maximize customer lifetime value by creating relevant experiences at all stages of the customer lifecycle.

The mobile device is part and parcel of daily life. It’s fundamentally changed the way consumers behave, and this influence has spread to the enterprise sector as well. For instance, patron-owned mobile devices have largely helped pave the way for the widespread emergence of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies. Ten years ago, the idea of a company employee logging into the enterprise system while they’re on an airplane over the Atlantic would seem far-fetched, but today such behavior is relatively commonplace. Mobility is changing how we shop, work and live our daily lives.

While the shift from disk to digital offers tremendous potential opportunities, it also presents a host of new challenges for gaming companies. As the online channel grows increasingly complex and the pace of innovation accelerates, many companies struggle to keep up. Not only are there websites and storefronts to manage, but also real-time gaming servers, large software downloads, and live-streamed competitions and events. Games are transforming from fixed, boxed products to dynamic, ongoing services – with frequently updated content, in-game micro-transactions, virtual goods and social interactions. Mobile adds another dimension to the trend, as consumers increasingly look to play on smart phones and tablets – or on multiple screens across devices. To successfully navigate this complex and changing landscape, gaming companies need an agile, high- performance infrastructure that allows them to turn the Internet into a reliable and effective online distribution channel.

The widespread use of mobile devices — smartphones and tablets — provides anytime, anywhere computing and communications resources for individuals worldwide. Both smartphones and tablets have made the transition from a personal resource, acquired and supported by consumers, to a professional resource, provided and supported by employers. For midsize firms around the world, those with 100–999 employees, mobile resources play a key role in improving workplace productivity as well as allowing greater flexibility in how and where work is done. New collaboration resources also allow staff in different locations to work together as efficiently and effectively as staff in the same office. The challenge for IT management is how best to coordinate the different collaborative and mobile resources and provide secure management of mobile devices and collaboration tools while enhancing workforce agility and productivity.
