Beyond digitisation: The four vital cornerstones of excellent customer experience

By Prof. Yudhvir Seetharam: Head of Analytics, Insights and Research at FNB Commercial One of the most valuable contributions that data and data analytics have made to modern businesses is the ability that they offer to understand customers, engage meaningfully with them, and offer them the type of positive experience that keeps them coming back for more. But for all the value that data presents in terms of enhancing the customer experience, it also creates a significant risk for the business that doesn’t understand how to apply it to best effect when creating customer experiences. More often than not, that risk is manifested in organisations that suffer a misperception that customer experience (CX) is something that you ‘do’ for your customer. These businesses typically understand CX to b...

Fake Pink Floyd Fans Mistake Dark Side of the Moon Rainbow for Gay Pride Flag, Start Homophobic Rambling

Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon has sported a rainbow on its cover for 50 years, since the cover, ahem, depicts a prism refracting light. Still, when the band posted an adapted version of this iconography to its Facebook to celebrate the album’s anniversary, many fake fans took the rainbow as a sign of Pink Floyd’s support for gay rights, and they weren’t happy about it. “Lose the rainbow, you’re making yourself look stupid,” one user commented, while another demanded “equal representation” on the band’s page with a “straight flag.” “From this moment I don’t listen to this band,” a third commenter threatened. Fortunately, however, news of the anti-woke mob swarming Pink Floyd’s comment section has prompted the band’s more reasonable fans to fire back, pointing out the fact...

SMS remains a force to be reckoned with, even 30 years after its launch

Despite the rise of advanced and hi-tech communication platforms in recent years, SMS usage for business communication is at an all-time high and the platform is expected to remain entrenched in this space for many years to come. 2022 marked the 30-year anniversary of the advent of SMS, which was initially launched as a person-to-person (P2P) communication platform in the early 1990s. At first, SMS messaging was limited to single mobile networks, but was opened to operate between different networks in the late 1990s. At this stage, businesses were already recognising the opportunities to use SMS as a communication medium, leading to it being increasingly commercialised. However, a huge transformation for SMS occurred with the launch of the first Apple iPhone in 2007, which was when instant...

Today’s CIO serves as mission control for the company

The CIO role has undergone a seismic shift. No longer relegated to just “keeping the lights on”, today’s CIO is now synonymous with “key decision maker”, in charge of many parts of the business, wielding massive influence within the C-suite and boards. As glorious as that sounds, the reality often means their attention is pulled in multiple directions. CEOs want them to generate new revenue-generating ideas with technology. Customer servicing teams depend on them to come up with the next ground-breaking AI chatbot. Procurement’s wondering why it’s taking so long to shift back-end data from legacy infrastructure to new cloud systems. Hackers are coming up with creative ways to circumvent the defenses CIOs have erected. Taking up the steering wheel CIOs are cognizant of this change. The majo...
