Relationship Advice for Marketers via Oracle Marketing Cloud

Tips to build engagements: relationship advice for marketers :

VIDEO: Oracle President Thomas Kurian on Marketing & CX

Perhaps no other business role has more to gain – and lose – in the ever-important world of customer experience (CX) than today’s marketer. Customer centricity and CX have become the leading strategic focus across almost every business around the globe. And yet there’s still no clear-cut winner on who owns customer experience. What is clear, however, is that marketing and its numerous customer touch points has the greatest opportunity to take the strategic wheel with today’s empowered, digital, social and mobile consumer.(...)

Oracle’s Thomas Kurian understands the CX imperative and the heavy weight on marketers to lead it. Having a consistent cross-channel view of customers with the ability to reach, engage, understand, segment, target and automate in an effective way is a major undertaking. But it is one Oracle has dedicated years of resources and time towards.   “We are the only ones in the industry that can actually solve these problems.” He goes on to say how Oracle is helping the marketer develop a “cross-channel identity graph” so marketers can know their users across all their channels and touch points. “The fact that we have this unified view of people, across all these channels, fundamentally transforms the power of marketing tools.” You can hear more from Kurian in this video.

Oracle Voice: A Technical Innovation to Talk to Your Customers About

One of the charters of the Oracle Applications User Experience team is to explore emerging technology and possible enterprise use cases and quickly turn that into product. Oracle Voice, for sales reps who use the Oracle Sales Cloud, is a great example of that.

In October 2013, the UX team tested a prototype of Oracle Voice on Oracle sales reps at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco and gathered feedback to build a solid product. It became available to you and your customers on iTunes in June 2014.

Oracle Voice allows sales reps to efficiently retrieve and capture sales information before and after meetings. Research shows that we tend to forget what we just learned if we don’t write it down within 20 minutes. With Oracle Voice, sales reps using Oracle Sales Cloud can capture key account information by speaking rather than typing.

Get up to speed on Oracle Voice so you can talk to your customers about it. It’s important that they hear about our innovations and our nimble development from you.

  • See what you can do with Oracle Voice in this post from the Voice of User Experience blog.
  • Read the Oracle Voice press release.
  • Check out a YouTube playlist of Voice demos that are being built for different devices, such as Android, and for employees in the HCM realm.

Oracle Voice is just the beginning of the dramatic technologies coming from the Oracle AppsLab. We’re exploring wearables, augmented reality, beacons, and much more—and building applications that enhance the user experience of Oracle Applications using these emerging technologies.
