Platform adoption

Loyalty is yesterday’s news. Customers have a world of choice. And if a platform can’t deliver what they need, when they need it, they’re off to one that can. What matters today is relevance—24/7.

Successful platforms achieve (and keep on achieving) an intensely customer-centric mindset, across every touchpoint. And they’re doing this at scale, faster than ever.

By inspiring radically different behaviors in their customers early in the adoption cycle, these leaders continuously drive growth, improve relevance and increase revenues.

Find out how human + machine innovation—spanning sales, marketing and service—is driving the future of platform adoption through hyper-relevance.

Platform trust

Trust is precious. In fact, it’s the foundation of the entire digital economy. And wherever customers interact with their platforms, companies have the opportunity to validate or reward trust—or to violate and destroy it.

Where every customer’s concerned, platform companies must view trust as a personalized, one-on-one relationship. Getting it right brings real economic benefit and growth through network effects. But failing to meet expectations risks valuable customers switching to rival platforms and taking their data with them.

Find out about the implications for safety, security, privacy, compliance and more.
