Some of the world’s leading CX specialists are set to reveal how organisations can transform their relationships with clients by using technology to simplify and personalise the customer journey.
Hundreds of business executives will hear from Confirmit customers and specialists at the Customer Experience Innovation and Tech Fest conference in Melbourne this week.
Confirmit, the global solutions provider for Customer Experience, Voice of the Employee, and Market Research will also host an exclusive dinner with one of Australia’s leading CX experts, Adam Geneave, Vice President of Customer Experience at Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific & Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia & Pacific Rim.
Mr Geneave, a speaker at the conference, will discuss how organisations should get back to basics.
“This new era of Customer Experience is exciting but all the new innovations and buzz terms can confuse and complicate our customer advocacy,” Mr Geneave said.
“The danger is that by focusing on the technology buzz we can forget about the basics of customer experience.
“Technology should empower not overpower our relationships with our customers by creating personalised and memorable experiences with our organisations.”
Confirmit’s Director of Customer Experience Management, Phil Durand, will also give a presentation on using technology to bridge gaps between departments to ensure data and customer knowledge are not trapped in silos.
“It is not uncommon for large organisations to have numerous data bases for the same customer in different silos,” Mr Durand said.
“When each department also has a different IT system then that creates even greater divisions within the company.
“By using technology, we can bridge those gaps and unite the data bases to provide clearer, richer customer insights. But as Adam rightly says, the technology is there to support and empower.”

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?

Cyber resilience will be particularly important as Australian organisations face increased pressure to quickly detect, respond to, and manage the repercussions of breaches in the wake of 2018’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.
