An Actual State of Membership Engagement 

As customers become more demanding these days, they put a premium on the (personalized) experiences they receive using a product or service. If we bring Salesforce membership management in this context, benefits, training, or enablement members get may be understood under “product”. 

The numbers speak for themselves: 86% of consumers claim their experiences are as important as a company’s product or service. Moreover, 73% of members agree technology is transforming membership organizations for the better. This is where AI enters the play. 

New Day for Customer Experience Salesforce Stats

Predictive, Generative, Autonomous & Agents, and Artificial General Intelligence – the 4 so-called “waves” of AI are now in the limelight. Much like other well-known corporations, Salesforce has started with the first one – Predictive (that is, how you perceive the data and ask questions). 

As of today, we are going toward the last stage – Artificial General Intelligence – where companies try to play around with practical applications of AI. However, consumer AI isn’t ready for business just yet. It’s not that simple. That is why 88% of IT leaders say they can’t meet AI demand safely.
