The customer journey can be enhanced by the use of automation, data, and journey mapping. Automation can reduce the time spent on different processes, refine those processes and increase efficiency by saving human bandwidth for more important tasks. However, according to Shruti Gupta, Chief Marketing Officer at Cashify, most people tend to treat big data and analytics as purely for Business Intelligence (BI) without efficiently syncing it with their marketing efforts. This missing link between data collection, analysis and marketing hinders the true impact of data-driven marketing therefore also creating bumps in the customer journey.
