Customer Experience in action through Artificial Intelligence
Winning and retaining customer loyalty is vital for every business. In the face of increasing competition and more demanding consumers, organizations therefore need to go beyond simply delivering excellent service and put customers at the heart of what they do. They must provide a consistent, high quality and personalized experience across every channel and touchpoint.
That’s one of the key themes of the forthcoming Gartner Customer Experience & Technologies Summit, which will be held in London on 10-11 May 2017. The event will look at how organizations can shape the future of customer experience, and ensure that they have the vision, strategy and tactics to thrive in ever-more competitive markets.
Eptica is a platinum sponsor of the Gartner Summit, and, as well as exhibiting will be speaking alongside its global customer L’Occitane.
L’Occitane – global CX in action
Founded in 1976, L’Occitane en Provence manufactures and sells natural and organic cosmetics and well-being products all around the world. It is committed to developing and retailing high quality products that are rich in natural and organic ingredients of traceable origins that respects the environment.

L’Occitane aims to provide its millions of global customers with a seamless, customer-friendly, cross-channel experience.
