(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) NCR Corporation, the global leader in consumer transaction technologies, today showcased its suite of innovative omnichannel technologies at the NCR Omni Channel Consumer Experience Forum' for the banking, retail and travel industry in the Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA) region.
Across all industries, consumers are using physical and digital channels interchangeably, often expecting the ability to begin a transaction in one channel and complete it in another. For example, a consumer may research a home loan online but complete the transaction in a bank branch.
Similarly, if a product is not available at a retail outlet, the customer expects an alternative channel like a self-service kiosk within the store to check availability of the product and order it instantly. However, most businesses have no visibility of the customer's journey between channels, and the customer experience feels disjointed.
''Every industry is engaging its customers in multiple channels, but companies may be overlooking a more fundamental need “ for a seamless, omni-channel approach that provides a single, unified experience for the customer across all touch points, locations and channels,'' said Brian Bailey, vice president, strategy and marketing, NCR Financial Services. ''With our innovative omni-channel platforms, NCR will be able to provide more choice, greater control, and increased flexibility to our customers to improve service, cut costs and drive sales.''
With its view of more than 485mn transactions around the world each day, NCR is creating technology solutions with an omni-channel perspective in mind. The innovative technology works together to create a consistent consumer experience as they interact and transact with a business' online, mobile and physical channels.
''NCR will continue to invest in the Middle East, which has witnessed a huge leap in helping the development of banks over the past decade,'' said Habib Hanna, managing director for South Gulf and Pakistan re
