In these instances, there is a brief moment of truth for you to meet that specific customer’s needs and expectations and to deliver on your brand promise.

According to Forrester Research, 10 percent improvement in an organization’s customer experience can boost revenue by $1 billion or more and the majority of companies are aware of the importance of customer engagement for enhancing profits. The major issue many businesses face is the inability to regularly engage customers.
