Deepak Pargaonkar, VP – Solution Engineering, Salesforce India, said, “The significance of delivering a cohesive customer experience cannot be overstated. As companies increasingly integrate AI across their business, customers are grappling with concerns around responsible use of the technology. It is imperative that companies differentiate their technology strategies, grounding them in trust and human connection.”

Mankiran Chowhan, VP – Enterprise Business, Salesforce India, said, “Customers today expect companies to anticipate their needs and provide proactive assistance, yet such service is rare, leaving customers feeling that the quality of service they receive is left to chance. Brands are prompted to prioritize consistency, efficiency, and a human touch with personalization being the tenet of modern customer engagement.”

Akhil Dugga, Head – Customer Experience, Atomberg Technologies, said, “For us, delivering superior customer experience is one of the pillars on which brand Atomberg is built. Customers have evolved, and being connected to your customer is an imperative. We’ve leveraged technology to ensure employees have what they need to create more human and real experiences for our customers which has been a key differentiator.”
