Guro Faller 10:00 - Customer Experience through the Microsoft CX Platform

Customer experience (often abbreviated as CX) refers to the overall impression or feeling that a customer has about their interactions with a company or brand. It encompasses all the touchpoints a customer has with a business, from browsing products or services online to purchasing, receiving support, and post-sale interactions.
By leveraging technology in these and other ways, companies can create a more seamless and satisfying customer experience. How can the Microsoft Customer Experience Platform support your organization through Self-service, Personalization, omnichannel, automation, and Data analysis?

Join to learn the key value of Microsoft's Customer Experience (CX) Platform. CXP is a suite of tools and services designed to help businesses improve their customer experience by leveraging data and analytics. The CX Platform includes several components, including Dynamics 365 Customer Insights, Dynamics 365 Customer Service, Dynamics 365 Sales, and Dynamics 365 Marketing.
In addition to these tools, the CX Platform also includes Azure Synapse Analytics, a cloud-based data analytics service, and Power Platform, a suite of low-code development tools.

In this session I will demonstrate how combining these tools and services, Microsoft's CX Platform aims to help businesses deliver a more seamless and personalized customer experience.
