If businesses want guests to return, the experience has to meet their expectations. This is why “guest experience” is so important. Businesses can do this by optimizing every interaction throughout the guest’s journey; this begins by understanding their needs and how best to meet those expectations.
Users increasingly expect their customer experiences to have a voice component, whether on a smartphone, on websites, or on a full-fledged voice assistant. The relative ease of use of voice assistants like Google Home and Amazon Alexa is engendering a significant paradigm shift away from page- and screen-bound brand experiences toward those increasingly mediated by audio, sound and voice.
In a recent prediction, Forrester described 2021 as the year of inclusive customer experience (CX). “We would be wise to become students of anyone who has special needs because their abilities outshine their disabilities and they bring joy and love into our environment, and that makes us all better off. And, guests have the same experience too.”
