Gone are the days when customers had only one way of contacting a company and companies just waited for the customers to reach out to them. Dialing into help centers with long wait times for assistance and passively responding to client’s needs represent an outdated model that can harm a business’s reputation.

Instead, the customer engagement industry is increasingly incorporating artificial intelligence (AI), software-as-a-service (SaaS) and other digitalization solutions to cut costs, improve client relations and prolong a client’s life cycle. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped the way organizations operate and the way consumers engage. The pandemic has been an adoption catalyst for SaaS, eCommerce, digital transformation, messaging, among other customer software technologies. COVID-19 has transformed consumers to become more digital using digital channels (mobile, apps, automation, social media) to connect with brands, which are driving organizations to adopt more customer applications to better serve, understand, and monetize its end-market. Industry analysis suggests customer software is the largest applications market and therefore offers numerous attractive wealth creation opportunities for the most innovative SaaS suppliers in the categories.

Infobird (NASDAQ: IFBD) is a leader in this field. The SaaS company provides innovative, AI-powered customer engagement solutions in China - where the SaaS market is expected to hit $6.9 billion by 2022.

Customized SaaS vs. Standardized SaaS: How Infobird Excels at Both

Many businesses put the emphasis on customizable systems because they believe personalized solutions fare better. However, this isn't always the case. While customizable software maintains unique benefits, it can also pose significant challenges that interfere with scaling and growth. On the other hand, standardized systems deploy much faster and allow for greater efficiency.

Infobird has witnessed first-hand the benefits of standardized systems. Since launching its standardized software, Infobird has been able to attract and propel key players within the retail and healthcare industry - where rapid scaling is critical.
