Top Benefits for a Business of Having 360 degree Customer View

By Tanuja A Akkannavar

A 360-degree customer view is a complete image of a consumer experience and engagement with a business from beginning to end. It emphasizes the various phases of the journey as well as how the customer felt at each one. Furthermore, a 360-degree customer view refers to a technique that allows companies to deliver the best possible experience to consumers across all platforms. It brings together various attributes, allowing a company to ensure customer loyalty at any point of the management.

By integrating information from diverse sources, companies may achieve a holistic view of their customers. This enables them to easily access account information, consider customers' interests and desires, and predict potential needs. Following are some of the benefits a company can gain while implementing 360-degree Customer View are mentioned below –

1. Customer Management Strategy –
Building long-term customer relationships are critical for every company. Various departments can record and distribute relevant, valid data or information about a customer using an intelligent and comprehensive Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system, regardless of the medium used.

2. Single Source –
Access to the data and transparency are crucial for your company's success because they have a single source of facts for your customers.

3. Cross Department Campaigns –
You can encourage cross-departmental collaboration, especially in marketing, sales, and service, by using the 360-degree customer view. The information can be easily exchanged between all stakeholders, enabling the sales team to create more data-driven strategic strategies and other initiatives.

4. Predictive Analysis –
A 360-degree customer experience not only allows you to see what your customers have done but also allows you to predict where they might go next. A company can use these analytics to inform better predictions and make more accurate predictive analytics by ensuring that all of your customer data is logged in one location.

5. Customer’s Loyalty –
Customers today expect to obtain the company end-product and have positive interactions during the consumer journey, from the initial interaction to repeat business. They want to be handled well by the company in the purchase process. Many companies find it difficult to attract and keep customers because of these consumer demands.

Over and beyond the product's price or other financial transaction, the overall consumer experience is the most important differentiator to maintain. Investing in consumer data collection for a 360-degree client view can be a wise decision. Customers, on the other hand, tend to buy from a company that is fully focused on them. Furthermore, some consumers may be willing to pay more for a product that provides a customized experience.

6. Reduce Costs –
It’s expensive to run a marketing campaign that doesn't work, and Campaigns that are more intelligent and data-driven would be more effective. Develop tailored consumer outreach and upsell opportunities for your company to stop wasting money on a campaign that doesn't work.

A company may also start segmenting your customers now that you have more insight into them. After all, it's pointless to spend the same amount of money on consumers who make repeat transactions as those who have never done so. When you have a 360-degree view of your customers, you will handle low-value customers differently.
