Customer Location Intelligence

Customers move through the world digitally – and they create a digital trail and real-time behavior that can be used to engage, predict, and delight. Hotels, Cruise Lines, Convenience Stores, Malls, Airports, Casinos, Manufacturers, Retail and Grocery, Healthcare Organizations, and so many more stand to gain tremendous opportunity by using Customer Location intelligence (CLI).  CLI is achieved via visualization and analysis of geospatial data to empower understanding, insight, decision-making, and prediction. Adding layers of data—such as demographics, traffic, and weather—to a smart map, organizations gain location intelligence as they understand why things happen where they do.

As part of a digital transformation, many organizations rely on geographic information systems (GIS) technology to create location intelligence.

 

Operations Optimization Research

Organizations and the world in which they operate continue to become more complex. Vast numbers of choices and relentless time and margin pressures make the decisions you face more daunting and more complex. All the while, new enterprise applications and software are generating massive amounts of data – and it can seem like an overwhelming task to turn that data into insight and answers.

The world’s most successful executives are making bolder decisions. What is now possible in the work of Operations Research continues to explode. The science just gets better and better. This means that leaders can take a “seat-of-the-pants-less” approach to decision-making for bolder, more effective decisions and running everyday operations – with less risk and better outcomes.

But all that data and the availability of more and cheaper computing power are creating an essential opportunity for decision-makers, one that OR is ideally designed to help you take advantage of. Our team of advanced of degreed professionals thrive on challenges that involve large numbers of variables, complex systems, and significant risks.

Customer Experience as a Platform to Drive Transformation (CxDNA)

Customer experience is more important now than ever to the customer and even employees. While it may be the top of mind for marketing, it is a top priority topic for every executive. Customer xDNA is both a framework and a strategic platform and a solution that will help you organize your thinking about how to think about customer experience management. But, even more importantly, it serves as a vital component of a platform to drive digital transformation through AI strategy and opportunities, real-time intelligent analytics and strategic decision-making, and hyper-personalization to enable the Sentient Enterprise: the new imperative in business decision-making and operations management.

RCG’s approach to CxDNA as a platform to optimize Customer Experience that intelligent, predictive, responsive, and actionable at the moment is comprised of :

  1. Customer understanding/segmentation
  2. A robust CxDNA Framework that is implemented and actioned with intelligence and real-time insight with the Sentient Enterprise as a Platform
  3. Data and Insight Agility, Data Refinery and pipeline and Trusted Data Foundation (TDF) that enables the organization
  4. Intelligent automation,  conversational AI, and more

 

AI Roadmaps, Strategy and Blueprint & Portfolio Management

There are two sides to Innovation: the creative side and the execution side. Organizations that execute well are driven by a shared vision, priorities, and a sense of urgency. We like to think about strategy activation as key in driving a high-performance business model. Organizations need a “yellow brick road” to help guide them on that path to success – and the journey to be a sentient and invincible organization.

We formulate an Enterprise Data and AI strategy that comprises matching the business vision with the data architecture necessary and a use-case roadmap to achieve those goals and overcome challenges.

Mentoring, Coaching, and Strategic Work Sessions

Every organization needs time, space, and creative partnership to discuss, brainstorm, express solutions to see how they are received, design experiments, and beyond. So, don’t risk your future with business as usual: build resilience and strategic agility.

RCG helps clients in a fun and very low-risk, low stakes way with Mentoring, Coaching and Fractional Expert Roles to help accelerate Innovation, growth, and strategy execution.

RCG believes in creating white space, a safe, creative space to help people work as creatively and innovatively as they can. This approach includes using a relaxed, informal approach to problem-solving with lateral thinking. It encourages people to come up with thoughts and ideas that can, at first, seem a bit crazy. Some of these ideas can be crafted into original, creative solutions to a problem, while others can spark even more ideas. This dialogue and interaction help get people unstuck by “jolting” them out of their usual ways of thinking. We have many ways to help:

  • Mentoring and Coaching
  • Fractional Leadership and Expertise
  • Innovation Sessions and Design Sprints
  • Facilitated Strategic Work Sessions
