Any business worth its salt knows the value of customer experience. But only the best businesses know how to shape a positive, dynamic customer experience for their clients. One way to do this is through experience centers: interactive, flexible spaces that showcase a business’s brand. When done right, an experience center promotes collaboration, shared learning, and human connection—all of which can occur either in person or virtually, thanks to visual collaboration software. The challenge when shaping a customer experience, then, is not just having the technology to do it, but also knowing what technology is helpful.
Adding a bunch of fancy bells and whistles doesn’t automatically make a great customer experience. Technology is helpful, yes, but the technology that’s best for customer experience centers needs two key qualities: simplicity and customization. Above all, collaboration technologies have to be easy to understand—for both businesses and customers—but these technologies also have to fit your brand’s mission like a glove. These two traits—simplicity and customization—are the driving force behind deep collaboration software. Truly collaborative software unites businesses with customers in a single space that has all the tools they need to build a positive, engaging, brand-forward experience—together. And the best of these platforms, like Alleo, does exactly that.
Collaboration is everything for experience centers, and software that empowers collaboration is vital to customer success. Learn what to look for in deep collaboration software for a business and why Alleo is undoubtedly the best choice.
What Should Be Considered When Choosing Technology for Virtual Collaboration?
The two most important functions for online collaborative tools are simplicity and customization, both of which Alleo provides. But what do these two look like in practice? Let’s examine each in further detail.
Ultimately, a tool is only as useful as it is easy to use; even the most advanced, flexible software in the world means nothing if no one understands how it works. So while some project collaboration software solutions may have tons of features and plenty of pliability, users may get lost in lines of code or get stuck when something’s not quite working. Additionally, if a business uses a collaboration platform that isn’t easy to share with first-time users, then collaboration can’t happen, and all the work that was put into the platform will go to waste.
At Alleo, we know what goes into a successful collaborative environment, and the first step is creating a space where everyone can collaborate. So whether you’re a software expert or first-timer, business or customer, in-person or remote, you should have the same ability to participate as everyone else in the space. Our software ensures this happens by…
- Making our platform accessible from anywhere there’s an internet connection, with any internet-enabled device, including computers, smartphones, and tablets.
- Developing a no-code interface that is simple to work with.
- Promoting collaborative equity through various ways to engage—from add-ons to pop-ups, surveys to sticky notes, and whiteboards for workflows.
Businesses know the power of branding, especially when it comes to experience centers. When designing an experience center, the goal is to make sure the customer leaves with a positive, informed outlook on that business’s brand. But not every organization’s needs are the same; each company will have its own unique solutions, clients, and brand messaging. The best collaboration tools should work with each user’s needs, creating a collaborative environment that works for them specifically. And as we move into an age of digital personalization, collaboration will depend more and more on addressing nuanced customer expectations, such as aligning with their business goals or brand statements. As such, the tools businesses use will need increasing amounts of flexibility.
Thankfully, tools like Alleo already solve these challenges. Here are just a few of the ways Alleo helps businesses build immersive experiences all their own:
- Complete control over presentation layout, format, and organization, including the ability to add branded features.
- Full integration with a wide variety of existing software solutions, including Zoom, Google Drive, Asana, and many others.
- Total consolidation of every function needed to create, collaborate, and coordinate with customers—all in one infinite visual canvas.
