  • 3 Tips On Making Approvals Quick And Easy

    Approvals – finance requires them. Managers detest them. Approvals aren’t just a matter of compliance and controls. Many are actually critical to executing important business processes such as approving a sales discount quickly to win a customer’s business, a purchase requisition to expedite time-to-market, or even expense reports for accurate end-of-quarter reporting.

Does Your Company Need A CCO? Does Your Company Need A CCO?

I came across an article on Forrester’s blog today titled, “What Chief Customer Officers Talk About Over Dinner,” written by VP and research director Harley Manning. My first thought upon reading this headline was, I wonder how many field service organizations even have a CCO (chief customer officer)? If I’m being honest, CCO is a term that not too long ago I would have laughed off – especially specifically for field service. But as the focus on customer experience grows and grows among field service leaders, I realize that there is value in a CCO-type title taking charge of the customer journey (whether you call them your CCO or something else).
