The Everything Customer

Presented by Hung LeHong, Distinguished VP Analyst, Gartner

The customer of the future will want everything. Technology will be able to deliver these needs to the empowered “everything customer”. Hung LeHong, Distinguished VP Analyst at Gartner, explored how to develop the technology foundation to serve the everything customer.

Key Takeaways
  • “The everything consumers demand ’ultimate experience’ from brands, no matter which device or touchpoint is used to interact.”

  • “The ‘everything customer’ is a mindset and not a customer segment, which can be characterized by four key customer requirements: 1) Multichannel, 2) Conflicting needs, 3) Readiness to pay for premium services, and 4) Access via digital giants.” 

  • “According to Gartner research, 85% of customer service interactions will start with self-service by 2022, up from 48% today.” 

  • “In the future, organizations will move from traditional segmentation to one large segment that can offer 1:1 personalization to the customers.”

  • “To serve this customer of the future, organizations need to focus on the combination of three important components: 1) Customer experience design, 2) Technology, and 3) Business model.”
