Omnichannel, in its most complete definition, means taking into account individual customer needs and perspectives to create seamless customer experience within and across multiple channels. The customer is in control, which creates amazing customer experiences and reduces friction for users and the business.
With a true omnichannel experience, each conversation is a continuation from the last and customers don’t have to reiterate their problems multiple times to multiple people. It provides better insights into a customer’s next action, and it enables more personalized product recommendations and proactive outreach. Through technology and analytics, brands can improve their operational efficiency, optimize their channel mix, and take advantage of lower-cost channels, all while enabling a better experience for their customers.

be developed in SAS or Python, then deployed in
real-time data streams within SAS Event Stream
Processing, while also integrating with open systems
through Java and C APIs, RESTful web services,
Apache Kafka, HDFS and more.
