CCM is no longer just about making document production more effective or efficient. This is because of three significant changes in the Business Ecosphere: the need to have a digital strategy, customer experience being THE sales differentiator, and the biggest single disruptor to business – the consumer having greater choice, availability of information and control.

So how does this signal the evolution of CCM?

As organisations realize that they cannot avoid going on a Digital Transformation journey, the ability to communicate digitally with customers/suppliers/stakeholders becomes a key component of that strategy.

As marketers come to terms with understanding that customer experience is the most important differentiator for consumers to choose between brands, there is an increasing convergence between marketing and CCM.

The age of the Consumer has become a day to day reality, with clients demanding the information THEY want, WHEN they want it, on the device of THEIR choosing and to then be able to interact with it HOW they wish to.

Therefore, CCM is now the Customer Experience element of any organization’s Digital Transformation journey; invaluable for both retaining existing clients and getting more revenue from them, and to secure new business.

For organisations not to recognize this could lead them down the same path as that trodden by the dinosaurs, some 66 million years ago.
