Omnichannel and the Anypoint platform
Optimize integration to deliver seamless, connected, and personalized customer experiences across all channels.
Your customers expect first-class experiences via all communication channels. Can you fulfill them?
Times have changed. Your customers are no longer satisfied with simple, impersonal transactions.
Today, they expect personalized service and an engaging, fulfilling experience-however and whenever they choose to interact with you. If you can’t offer them that, they’ll be willing to take their business elsewhere.
This is why omnichannel is so important for businesses today.
Thanks to advances in technology, customers now expect real-time inventory visibility, relevant recommendations, consistent information and service across all channels, and informed employees who know and understand the customer’s order history and preferences. Your customers also want control over their relationship with you – the ability to manage their own profile, billing and delivery preferences. They want to track their orders in real time and be informed about the order status. And they expect relevant marketing programs that address their specific needs.
Not only your customers expect this, but also your business partners and employees want this seamless transparency and control in real time. This allows them to perform their jobs better, feel more engaged and productive, and contribute more to the bottom line.
Enabling omnichannel can be challenging, but rewarding.
Achieving this level of personalization, transparency and consistency can be very complex, difficult and costly. Connectivity and integration with a variety of e-commerce, CRM, and ordering systems are essential, but much more is required today for a superior omnichannel customer experience.
Now you need to support an omnichannel strategy that engages a variety of stakeholders – including customers, suppliers, distributors, transportation partners, store associates, customer service representatives, warehouse staff, and business managers. And you need to include every channel – online, retail store, mobile app, phone, chat and others.
But it’s worth the effort. Among other benefits, companies that have successfully implemented omnichannel report significantly higher customer satisfaction and greater profitability with omnichannel customers.
An API-driven approach to connectivity with the MuleSoft Anypoint platform has helped many companies implement their omnichannel strategies and create seamless, personalized customer experiences. Anypoint provides the connectivity, scalability, visibility, flexibility and security required to deliver omnichannel excellence.
Our team has extensive integration and omnichannel experience and can help you implement and optimize your solution to achieve your omnichannel goals. You’ll be able to deliver the level of service, personalization, transparency and efficiency that sets your business apart, and reap the rewards by gaining satisfied, loyal customers.
You can't afford the cost of doing nothing.
Adopting omnichannel commerce seems like a lengthy and expensive initiative, but when you consider the cost of not adopting it, you can’t afford to delay. A recent study found that 63% of customers would switch companies if they didn’t have a connected shopping experience – and this trend is likely to continue.
Some companies have built omnichannel operations by connecting and integrating existing, isolated systems with point-to-point connections as needed. They find that this process is time-consuming, resource-intensive, and does not provide the seamless, real-time results they need. Even more troubling, changing these systems each time a new channel, data source, or partner is introduced into the already complex mix is extremely complex – if not impossible.
Unfortunately, these companies did not see integration as a holistic strategy, but rather as a project-based means to an end that is ultimately expensive and unwieldy.
A holistic, well-planned approach to integration is required!
Without a well-designed omnichannel approach, companies will continue to struggle with systems and processes that are not:
Services and functions cannot be easily extended or adapted to the needs of the company.
Services and applications may not run on every device the customer may use.
Important data is locked in silos and not available to decision makers and others who need it.
The solution to the problem is a holistic integration strategy combined with API-driven connectivity. This approach helps create a seamless omnichannel experience with the transparency and accessibility that customers want and businesses need.
API-powered connectivity connects data to applications using reusable APIs. So instead of constantly reinventing the wheel, apply the same API for a different purpose – freeing up your IT team and leveraging the value of existing code.
Accelerate omnichannel enablement so you can deliver better customer experiences faster!
When you consider that a standard omnichannel transaction requires the interaction of over 35 different systems, you realize the scale and complexity required to connect an entire enterprise with all its constituent parts. Anypoint makes it easier with out-of-the-box connectors that speed up the process and get you up and running quickly.
But omnichannel is more than just connecting one system to another. It’s about creating a digital platform of apps, data and devices that provides a seamless, fulfilling experience for every user. This is where APIs make a big difference.
With Anypoint, you can create reusable processes and assets that make interactions with your business efficient and consistent. APIs enable 360-degree customer views that provide insights into customer behavior, enable personalized service, and deliver relevant offers that drive revenue. APIs also allow you to adapt, pivot, and adjust to meet customer demand without disrupting business. Consequently, companies benefit from:
Greater customer satisfaction
Lower operating costs
Increased brand loyalty
Shorter time to market
That sounds wonderful, but where to start?
