We’ve spent the best part of two decades helping companies with their digital maturity through our products. Here are some of the reasons we’re sure our digital experience platform (DXP) Kentico is the perfect fit for your membership organization.
In our earlier article, we explored how this digital-first-digital now era is creating challenges for membership organizations as they look to improve their digital experience maturity and catch up with their members’ sky-high expectations.
Addressing legacy technology, data silos and poor integrations can be difficult challenges for membership organizations looking to improve their digital engagement. Especially with companies like Amazon Prime setting the bar. Not only do members expect personalized, engaging and interactive experiences, but they want them to be consistent across all channels and devices and delivered instantly.
It’s no wonder, therefore, that member engagement is the top priority for membership organizations who are bringing their engagement projects and initiatives forward on their roadmaps. The trouble is, most are struggling with antiquated software that is difficult to use, time-consuming to manage, poorly integrated, and weak in the tools they need to deliver truly exceptional experiences.
Member data is often fractured across their various touchpoints (siloed from being of any real value) meaning organizations find it increasingly difficult to learn about their members (why they joined, what they value, why they’re leaving), or improve the customer journey. They can’t use member data to deliver the personalized experiences they crave, nor can they be sure that the data they are using is compliant with data regulations. Without the right tools to truly engage members, organizations find themselves working frantically to pour members into the top of their bucket faster than they’re losing them through the hole in the bottom.
Now is the time to invest in your digital experience maturity, else risk falling far behind.
