Foreign exchange specialist Travelex is deploying an experience management platform from US software company Qualtrics as part of a drive to enhance its customer experience agenda across retail and online stores.

Ghaby Wannounch, general manager, Retail – Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Guam, Travelex, said the company chose the Qualtrics Experience Management platform because of its ability to measure, prioritise, and optimise the customer experience at every touchpoint along the customer journey.

“The retail arena is becoming increasingly competitive. Online shopping has reached massive proportions and the number of people making their purchases online is only going to increase further. This means that physical retail stores are competing with online stores as well, which has created a much smaller but more competitive battle ground for retailers.

“The result is that competing on product or price has become difficult, especially if businesses want to grow and make a profit. It’s all about delivering a superior customer experience and making customers happy to encourage loyalty.

“The Qualtrics Experience Management platform helps Travelex collect and analyse customer data. For example, using the NPS metric lets Travelex determine how loyal a customer is. Qualtrics provides to easy-to-read reports and dashboards, so Travelex can learn more about its customers, leading to an enhanced customer experience.”

According to Bill McMurray, managing director, Asia Pacific and Japan, Qualtrics, the Qualtrics Experience Management platform makes it easier for organisations to “monitor, respond, and improve every key moment along the customer journey and incorporate customer feedback into every decision in real-time”.

“With Qualtrics, Travelex can engage with its customers naturally, no matter how and where interactions occur.”

Qualtrics has just announced enhancements to its Text iQ text analytics engine that are designed to leverage the power of machine learning and predictive intelligence to help companies gain insights from their unstructured data.

The Text iQ utilises machine learning and natural language processing to uncover sentiment analysis and automatically suggest trends and key topics that emerge from the text, identifying problems and opportunities hidden in feedback across a company.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
