E-mail, social media, instant messaging apps, the methods to communicate today are limitless. Technology has simplified the way we communicate with each other. Although there are many positives to this aspect, there are a whole new set of challenges associated with it as well.

Despite being a challenge, the demand for personalised communication can prove to be an opportunity for enterprises to improve customer experience and engagement. This happens as customers feel valued when an enterprise goes one step further in understanding their needs better. Also, customers are more likely to engage or respond better to messages and communications that are tailored to their interests, likes/dislikes, lifestyle etc. All this, in turn,helps build a stronger customer relationship for the enterprise.

Enterprises can focus on sending the right message through the right channel to reach a customer in the fastest and most effective way possible.Apart from this, enterprises with large customer base can intelligently manage their customer-facing revenue generating documents like bills, statements, premium receipts, invoices, etc., without committing investments on every business process. Thus, leading to reduced costs, increased revenues and highly engaged customers.
