Frost & Sullivan: Internet of Things and its Impact on Customer Interaction

~Frost & Sullivan Hosts Customer Interaction Malaysia Summit in Kuala Lumpur

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan recently hosted the 6th Annual Customer Interaction Malaysia Summit on the 13 March 2014 at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Kuala Lumpur. Customer Interaction and Experience have become the buzzwords in many industry sectors today, as companies seek to differentiate themselves and evolve from being product or service focused to being customer oriented.

It is no longer sufficient to measure the customer service at the contact centre, but look at the total value chain of the customer perception from all key touch points, as well as different aspects of the customer lifecycle. This one-day summit aims to provide businesses with powerful tools to enhance their customer experience, differentiate themselves from competitors, and build roadmaps for implementing effective strategies.

"Today's contact centers are evolving rapidly from having a primary focus on voice interaction to the use of multiple channels across multiple devices. Apps are becoming the major form of engagement across a wide array of activities such as booking taxis and making payments," said Mr. Andrew Milroy, Vice President of ICT Research, Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific.

In his keynote presentation, Mr. Milroy discussed the evolution of the contact center and the implications of the Internet of Things on customer interaction.

"This is creating a situation where customers can potentially engage with organisations using many different objects or things. As more and more things become IP enabled, it will be possible to reach customers in many different ways such as via a car dashboard or a wrist band," said Mr. Milroy.

Throughout the summit, Frost & Sullivan and other the industry experts discussed how businesses can improve customer experience, the impact of big data, the benefits of Interaction Process Automation (IPA), the importance of personalization, as well as insights into customer experience in the Banking and Healthcare industries.

Presenters and participants included industry experts from Bank Simpanan Nasional, BP Healthcare, Celcom Axiata, Contact Centre Association of Malaysia, Interactive Intelligence, Jabra Asia Pacific, Standard Chartered Bank, Tenaga Nasional, and YTL Communications.

The inaugural 2014 Best Practices in Customer Experience awards was also held in conjunction with Frost & Sullivan's 6th Annual Customer Interaction Malaysia summit.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
