Customer Experience is the New Competitive Battleground for Companies in Europe

LINK 2015 Over 100 executives from 12 countries gathered in the Altitude LINK Conference to focus on how to achieve sustainable differentiation through customer experience.

Lisbon, Portugal, October 21, 2015 – The most recent research published on customer service issues show that - more and more - companies recognize customer service as a competitive differentiator even as customer satisfaction indicators continue to decline.

This was the background for the Altitude LINK Conference, a meeting of more than 100 executives from 12 countries to discuss the way forward for companies seeking to become more customer-centric. The event took place in Brussels and the agenda included presentations on market trends and on some of the best practices in the industry. Altitude innovative solutions and the company’s point of view on the road ahead for customer experience were presented to the user community.

“To become more customer-centric companies need to build the infrastructure to better serve customers and enable them to choose, personalize and optimize their experience at every interaction” states Eric Vidal, Executive Vice-President for Northern Europe at Altitude. “This is a major challenge as customers are more and more in control of their experience with brands. Solutions need to be adaptive, flexible, scalable and intelligent. They should provide customers with a positive experience and provide companies with information for continuous improvement.”

Sponsored by Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise and Contextor, the Altitude user community event, now on its 9th edition, brings together a community of decision makers from BPO and CRM outsourcers, and from companies’ customer service, sales and marketing functions, to share best practices, learn about the latest solutions and network with fellow practitioners from Central, Northern and Eastern Europe.
