Noted as Best in Class for internal client insights and for strategy
PwC was named a leader in The ALM Vanguard of Service Operations Consulting Providers. Via this report, ALM assesses firms in terms of their relative ability to create impact for their clients.
The customer experience industry continues to evolve due to increasingly robust digital capabilities and the diverse choices available to customers. Companies can access customer data in new and exciting way. In order to meet these opportunities and face potential challenges, customer service strategy must go beyond front-line customer interactions and extend to back-office strategy.
The ALM reports states, “With an understanding of clients’ needs to balance cost to serve and customer experience, PwC provides strong service operations advisory that effectively integrates people and technology into a cohesive, efficient, and agile operating model. The firm’s significant breadth of capabilities, in addition to industry specific expertise, complements its advisory in this area, creating strong tailored solutions sustainable long after the end of the consulting engagement.”
