Intelligent businesses always have a tendency to follow closely current business trends.
For instance, most leaders keep tabs on the current as well as the near-future trends affecting their businesses and the industry at large. Nevertheless, many companies fail to take account of the farther future leading to loss in opportunity, especially when it comes to innovation.
Apple is a good example of an innovative company. Their recent announcements of their Apple Pay Service and Apple watch products make a good example of the current trends in the alternate payment methods and wearable technology markets. As a result, you will see many companies in the same industry making products and services aligned with these developments.
For instance, there has been a surge of innovative thinkers who have
started engaging with their customers in a more intimate manner through these wearable devices. It is true that smartphones and other mobile products have managed to provide a personal connection with the user, wearable devices achieve something more; they give the user a feeling of being physically “connected,” thus providing great business opportunity.
With this in mind, it is only obvious to ask yourself how your business can build a stronger customer relationship and provide a better customer experience by utilizing the capabilities of wearable devices. In a typical day, imagine a customer interacting with a wearable device. How do they interact with these devices, what solutions can they solve easily or in a more enjoyable way. Put into consideration other existing applications that can be used in these devices to support your business. By considering such factors, ideas will start flowing. You will get endless methods and solutions to different problems that exist in your business; especially in customer experience. The alternate payment trend is another area of growth that has recorded rapid growth. Customers want effective solutions to their common problems. Businesses should leverage existing opportunities to provide just that.
