In today’s market, customer experience is almost literally the key to business success and sustainability. It’s how businesses compete with each other for customers and return sales. While product and price carry a lot of weight when it comes to business, it’s customer experience (CX) that leads to brand loyalty – the pinnacle of business success. It’s so important to your brand image that another brand could have a better product, better prices, or both, but providing amazing CX is truly the determining factor that keeps customers coming back again and again.

The way a customer experiences your brand is so vital to the life and longevity of every business, no matter how long it has been in operation, that CX management market investments are increasing to $52.54 billion by 2030 (up from $16.91 billion as of 2023). CX is so interconnected with how customers perceive businesses that the profitability and success of customer-centric companies is 60% higher than businesses that aren’t. That’s because customers shop where they feel seen, heard, and valued. Like with any relationship, there is no difference in the business/customer relationships where feeling connected and special matters.

While CX is a key driver of business growth, personalizing the customer experience can elevate it to a new level. At Credico, we champion a personalized customer experience that centers on the individual. Our approach is rooted in person-to-person, human-to-human interactions, a strategy that remains relevant despite the increasing reliance on technology in today’s business landscape.

“Times may be changing, with the world becoming more digital and less human. But at Credico, we understand the power of a personalized customer experience,” said Jesse Young, President of Credico. “Our secret? The human-to-human exchange, where trust abides. It’s important to embrace the digital shift, but never forget the importance of genuine connections.”

Many business leaders often focus on outshining their competitors within their respective industries. While branding and marketing are crucial aspects of a business, it’s important not to overlook the significance of the customer experience. Personalized human-to-human interactions are the key to unlocking the door to success. That’s because 73% of shoppers still prefer to make their purchases in-store, face-to-face instead of online. By prioritizing and maintaining the human touch in every customer experience, businesses can establish meaningful connections with their current and future customers, leading to greater success.

“In a fast-paced digital era, it’s easy to get lost in the sea of automation and impersonal interactions,” said Young. “That’s why at Credico, we prioritize maintaining the human touch in our business.”

Since 1991, we’ve adapted to negotiate or renegotiate how to navigate the ever-changing business landscape. From the introduction of computers and other tech advances to now, we’ve seen many businesses convince themselves that going all-digital is the way to do business. At Credico, we understand, and know firsthand, the unquestionable power of the human-to-human exchange in business. It’s how we’ve been able to access the key to business success and take the hinges off the door that has led us to years of brand loyalty and decades-long relationships with our customers.

Understanding this power is the secret to our success – it’s our business strategy and way of life. We know the value of human-to-human interactions because we realize that we, too, are human, and we know how we want to experience brands ourselves. Therefore, we see ourselves in every customer and maintain a standard of care for every interaction. It’s good for our business and for us. Making our customer’s day makes ours. That’s what it’s all about for us. The power of human interactions is the power of community, and will always need community.
