Transform to Thrive in the New CX Economy: The APAC Perspective
In this free session from Enterprise Connect 2023, Audrey William, Principal Advisor at Ecosystm, outlines what APAC CX leaders need to do to push the boundaries in CX delivery through the application of people, processes and technologies.
70% of Customer Experience (CX) leaders in Asia Pacific place a high importance to personalisation. The new CX economy requires organisations to meet the customers where they are and on their terms. It requires a proactive approach to reach out to the customers before they initiate an interaction, rather than the traditional, reactive customer engagements of the past. Technologies such as AI and Analytics are becoming more important than ever, as are methods including processes to deepen understanding of customer conversations and journeys. Enterprises must understand how customers are behaving and what is driving that behavior, and understand their journeys.
The Future of Work: The End-User's Perspective
The future of work is intelligent.
Companies are changing how they work, collaborate, and get things done. The shift from in-person to remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic has already evolved again into a hybrid model with new expectations of videoconferencing and collaboration technology.
It can be challenging to make the right investments of time, money, and technology to meet the needs of both today’s expectations and the future of work.
Equipping Offices for Collaboration in a Global Enterprise
Enterprises all over the world are experiencing new challenges created by the shifting work culture. Especially for those accommodating a new hybrid work model, identifying which technologies to invest in to support videoconference meetings in a range of office configurations can be overwhelming.
Developing a strategy to support workers today as well as lay a foundation for communication in the future requires in-depth understanding of how technology options, cost, use rates, and many other factors come together to provide the best value for the business.

Singapore Firms and Hybrid Work: Diversity Talent Pool, but Inequity Risks
Organizations in Singapore transitioning towards a hybrid work model now can tap a wider talent pool, but they also will need to address gaps it can create, such as employee inequity and disjointed collaboration.
The move to hybrid work further offers companies the opportunity to reassess their talent mix and strengthen their management efforts. This will prove essential as every organization has to define its own vision of hybrid work based on its business goals, talent types, and talent needs.
Post-Pandemic Customer Engagement
As the world settles into a post-pandemic era, organisations in Singapore will need to ensure they remain equipped to serve a population that is now accustomed to consuming products and services in more ways than ever before, in particular, through digital channels.
For IT, this means everything from contact centres to marketing, sales, and other systems must be integrated more effectively to deliver the service customers expect.

Tighter data residency law could hit providers’ plans to pursue India’s market
