    The digital re volution

                     The digital revolution has given birth to a new profile
                     of customers that are always connected and better
                     informed. Customers have higher expectations with a
                     world of choice to fulfill them and are therefore hard
                     to retain and even more difficult to acquire.

                               The advances in digital technology have dramatically
                               changed the way customers communicate.

                               From laptops, to smartphones to tablet
                               PC’s, your customers are always connect-
                               ed. What’s more, with an explosion of
                               social media sites, blogs, wikis and video
                               sharing, they can easily create and share
                               information all over the world. As a result,
                               customers are now better informed, more
                               demanding and have higher expectations.
                               In the digital age, customers have a world
                               of choice and can be extremely selective as
                               to whom they engage with, making their
                               business hard to get and their loyalty easy
                               to distract.
