Unveiling Sprinklr’s new editorial series 'CX-Wise.' Let’s go beyond the script.
April 12, 20239 min read
In a world where running a business isn’t simply competitive but more like entering a warzone, it’s not enough to just have a cool brand. No, if you want to one-up your opponents, your recipe needs that added zing. And there’s no doubt that epic customer service is that special something — that secret sauce. Why, some would even say that customer experience (CX) is just as important as your brand!
I mean, think about it. When customers have so many options and can order just about anything online, it’s a no-brainer that businesses need to put their backs into making them feel valued and appreciated.
Can’t take our word for it? Okay. Imagine you’re itching for a caffeine fix, and you stumble upon two splendid coffee shops. One has a flashy name and logo, but the other has a friendly staff that always remembers your go-to order and makes you feel like you’re a VIP. Which one would you choose?
See what I mean?
At Sprinklr, we've never been content with just playing by the rules; we’ve always been all about redefining the customer experience game itself. Our unified platform stretches across many different touchpoints, and now we've stepped on the gas with our CCaaS offering that takes this unified experience to the next level!
Our mission? It’s to help you become a total CX rockstar! Do you hear that power chord of the electric guitar yet? We’re talking tried-and-true strategies, sharing real-world tips (which actually work), connecting you with other like-minded folks from the community and stoking the flames of inspiration with success stories! Oh, and did we mention that you get to learn from the best of the best in the biz?
So, if you feel that your CX game hasn’t been working out quite right, get ready for the complete package. It’s for professionals who are devoted — no — obsessed with their customers that we unveil the very first edition of our brand-new editorial series, ‘CX-Wise’. It’s time to step outside the gameboard; it’s time to go beyond the script!
Do you really need yet another editorial series for the customer service industry?
All right, all right. Let’s address the elephant in the room first, then. Don’t customer service folks already have enough to consume? From FAQ to scripts to product documentation and yadda yadda. So, why should you consume more?
Fair enough. But ask yourself another thing: Aren’t you tired of reading long, windy and corporate-y articles endlessly with very little to actually take away from them? How about the fact that the content isn’t specific to the real problems you face on the ground?
So that your time and needs are given the proper respect they deserve, we’ve packed value into each and every section of this hyperfocused series. Here, you don’t need to subscribe to multiple newsletters of various CX experts. And yes, we don’t want to add to the clutter of your inbox, so we’re curating the wisdom of these veterans before we pass it on to you.
Read our CX Diaries to set sail down memory lane with tales that resonate with your own stories of customer delight. And if reading isn’t your thing, you can simply tune in to a free-flowing conversation on the CX-Wise podcast, where our host asks the questions that always made you pace furiously from wall to wall. After all, even the wise are always looking to get wiser!
With this series, we’re trying to look at things from your point of view. And if you’re going, “How would you know what I think?” Well, tell us then. We’d love it if you contributed, too!
We want to give you the practical, relevant advice that you are looking for, instead of just mashing up a bunch of random tips that won’t do the trick in the real world. We want to go beyond the script and become the voice of the front lines. And we hope you just give us a chance.
Let’s explore CX-Wise
If you whispered to yourself, “So, what am I looking at?”
Well, we've basically got you covered CX-wise (pun intended) with five different segments: the CX-Wise podcast, CX Diaries, Words to the Wise, Raise the CX Bar and CX Simplified. And, no, their powers don’t combine to give you Captain Planet. Together, they make up your one-stop editorial shop for all things CX. So, make sure you swing by to stock up on your CX essentials.
