Evolution for a Seamless and Cohesive Experience

Chuck Foster

I was recently reading a Harvard Business Review article “The Truth about Customer Experience” and found a quote that aptly explains the benefit of a ‘single codebase’ from the customer’s perspective.  By single codebase we mean multiple components, seamlessly bound, that address a customer's needs in a way that the individual components cannot deliver on their own.  The article makes this critical point, that so often gets lost across functions, autonomous teams and multi touchpoints.

From a customer’s perspective, the most important part of a product is often not its individual features, but rather how those features come together to create a seamless and cohesive experience. “

With a single-code channel partner platform rather than multi-supplier solutions under SSO (incentives, spiff, rewards, MDF/Co-op, rebates etc.) your partner program can seamlessly evolve; bringing collective business benefits to you and your partners.
