The impact of COVID-19 has brought unprecedented disruptions in human lives. Accordingly, it has transformed consumer behavior as well. Customers and technologies are evolving, and so are customer experience (CX) and customer relationship management (CRM) strategies. Technology advancement and digital transformation are critical drivers of the everlasting customer revolution. Customers today are more tech-savvy, well-apprised, and dynamic.

As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, companies are redefining their strategies and reevaluating their CRM systems to enhance CX and employee experience (EX), ultimately driving customer experience.

Critical trends are emerging in the CRM industry, including customer experience, artificial intelligence, analytics, mobility, data management, user friendliness, integrations, digital, and self-service.
