Boosting Customer Experience: The Power of Enterprise Forms in Today’s Digital Landscape

As the digital age continues to evolve, the significance of forms in collecting personal, first-party data and streamlining processes to enhance customer interaction cannot be overemphasised. Unfortunately, traditional web forms often fail to meet the complex needs of enterprise organisations. The solution? A shift towards advanced enterprise forms technology.

Smart Communications recently outlined the differences between enterprise forms and web forms.

Enterprise forms are designed to tackle the multifaceted requirements of businesses, particularly in areas of versatility, security, and true automation. However, many companies face an array of challenges when dealing with form processes. Therefore, enhancing the customer experience and operational efficiency with these modern forms requires careful consideration of specific features and capabilities.

Most web form tools are created for one-way interactions, such as surveys or job applications. Yet, these tools are less effective for applications that demand different outcomes based on provided information, like lending, onboarding, enrolment, and claims. This limitation becomes even more evident in heavily regulated industries such as healthcare, financial services, and insurance. These sectors grapple with intricate approval processes, vast amounts of personal data, and a seamless integration with their existing systems, all of which cannot be fulfilled by basic web form tools.

Enterprises also face significant challenges with paper forms, which are not only tedious and time-consuming to fill out, but also pose risks in terms of data security, regulatory compliance, and environmental impact. The physical constraints of these forms can also impede remote collaboration and productivity, a critical aspect of modern working dynamics.

Among the issues enterprises encounter include inefficient data storage and retrieval, limited data security, and lack of real-time visibility. Additionally, manual and paper-based forms result in higher costs and environmental impacts, which is not sustainable in the long run.

A pressing concern is how these forms impact customer effort and experience. Traditional tools and processes can create internal inefficiencies and detract from the user experience, often leading to errors, delays, and customer frustration.

On a more positive note, enterprises can significantly enhance user experience by modernising their form processes. By adopting solutions that offer intuitive interfaces, automate repetitive tasks, ensure data accuracy, and integrate seamlessly with their systems, businesses can create a more streamlined and user-friendly environment.

Key capabilities that enterprises should consider include dynamic, web-based forms that are accessible online, a low-code form builder that empowers non-technical users to create and customise forms, and seamless integration with legacy systems. These tools should also provide robust field validation to ensure data accuracy and include workflow and automation capabilities to streamline back-end processes.

Embracing enterprise forms is the first step towards a more efficient, customer-friendly, and modernised business operation. As the FinTech industry continues to evolve, so should your approach to capturing and managing first-party data.
