Today, the average person has instant access to an immeasurable quantity of information. Smartphones and mobile devices put it all at one’s fingertips. It is part of an unprecedented shift that puts customers squarely in the driver’s seat.
As a result, the balance of power has decisively shifted from sellers to buyers—from products and services to the customers who consume them. Companies now face a simple but critical choice: prioritize the customer experience, or risk going by the wayside. The companies that thrive are those that obsess over proactively meeting customer demand for timely and effortless experiences.
