Selecting and implementing a WEM platform without a plan can result in:

  • Misalignment with Marketing’s requirements.
  • A platform that frustrates prospective and current customers, leading to lost revenue.
  • Rework caused by improper deployment.
  • Wasted investment.
  • Poor adoption and high operational costs.

Upfront planning for WEM selection and deployment leads to:

  • A deployed, cost-effective platform that is in lockstep with the needs of Marketing and other stakeholder groups.
  • A platform that provides cutting edge capabilities for customer interaction.
  • High adoption rates and low maintenance costs.
  • A deployment that does not require overhauls every year.
