Omnichannel is one of those words everyone
uses, but few use correctly. It’s not another word for
multichannel. It’s a different state of existence.
In our experience, multichannel is the ability to interact
with customers across many different channels, but
not necessarily in a cohesive fashion. As new channels
become available, they are “bolted on” to existing
customer experience infrastructure such as CRM
or customer support systems. Too frequently, the
management of these channels becomes siloed (web
versus in-store sales, for example). The effect of this from
the customer experience standpoint can be disjointed
and jarring. For example, the resolution of an issue
following a customer conversation with an associate
in the contact center may not be reflected when the
customer goes online or into a store.
Yet the ability to offer multichannel service experience is
table stakes for today’s business. If you’re not available in
the channels where customers want you to be, you cease
The Spice House has a long history of pioneering how spices are
sold. Since 1957, its flagship brick-and-mortar location has been a
go-to hub for grabbing a cup of coffee and taking in the full spice
experience—smelling, grinding, tasting, touching, and talkin’ spices
and their backstories with the owners.
Today, The Spice House sells more than 400 spices, blends, rubs, and
extracts across several retail locations and the ecommerce store. See
how Drip ecommerce CRM helps The Spice House bring a great instore
experience to their online space.
When it comes to how you communicate
with customers, you’re faced with some
big decisions—one of them being whether
to use an ESP or ECRM. Both platforms
can deliver your email, but beyond that,
these tools are pretty different.
Getting the right roster of marketing
tools is critical no matter where your
brand is when it comes to growth. If
you’re just starting to sell online, you
need platforms that won’t hold you back
when you hit your stride. If you’re part
of a long-standing enterprise, whichever
platform you adopt needs to be able to
handle anything you throw at it while
exposing opportunities you might not
have noticed before.
See what each platform was built for,
which companies benefit the most from
each, and which you should choose to
reach your brand’s goals.
