A recent independent survey found that 67% of businesses hear about service problems from customers before they have identified those problems themselves.

With a business navigation system, you will be able to manage business-relevant events in real-time, identifying the first moment a problem or opportunity is predictable, so you can improve the end result. This will help minimize risk and maximize your revenue. Find out more in this IDC Insight report.
