State of Extended Reality in an Experience Economy, 2022
Today’s customers are digitally savvy, demanding, and value-driven. They have witnessed a pandemic for more than 2 years now, and are clamoring for an enriched experience that goes beyond the 2D outlay a laptop or mobile can provide. With this demand for improved CX and the rapidly evolving digital infrastructure, extended reality (XR) has gained tremendous interest from technology and business leaders in equal measures.
According to a study conducted by Poplar, globally, 75% of consumers expect their retailers to now offer an AR experience. Further, the rise of Metaverse has been augmented by the rise in Web 3.0 applications like NFTs and Cryptocurrency.

While the maturity rates are not the same in all industries, some show greater inclination than others in their quick adoption. Providing personalized assistance can go a long way in building long-lasting relationships with customers. Whether with guided product tutorials through a VR environment, previewing products through an AR app before purchase, or remote assistance through mixed reality. Such digital touchpoints can help improve customer satisfaction.
As per IBM’s report, the Financial Services industry is expected to have the highest spending in XR for improved customer engagement. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 133.9% in the next decade, with a keen interest in higher brand recall through XR.
Industry leaders need to tap into the benefits and differentiation that having an AR experience can provide. A reluctance to do this would invite the risk of missing the bus to disrupt new entrants more attuned to consumer needs. With customer loyalty waning away faster than ever before, companies can no longer afford to be reactive in their offerings.

Rise of CX-aided Super Agents
AI-aided Super Agents can ‘engage to win’ customers with 63% more success.
Though AI saw adoption rates jump 50% in 2020, usage rates remain low. This gap presents an opportunity for businesses to make AI a better partner to agents.
Only 47% of agents believe they have tools to succeed in a post-pandemic world. AI remains an underutilized tool, despite the adoption boost, among larger carriers.
High-performing teams across other industries are 93% more likely to have agents working across multiple channels, and have three times more agents doing so. Agents empowered by AI can increase productivity and boost sales performance with contextual insights — like the customer’s email, order history, or why they last reached out.

Implementing a Clean Architecture with Nest.JS
Nest or NestJS is a framework for building efficient, scalable Node.js applications (server-side) built with TypeScript. It uses Express or Fastify and allows a level of abstraction to enable developers to use an ample amount of modules (third-party) within their code.
Here are the 3 building blocks of NestJS and what each of them does.
- Modules: NestJS is structured in such a way that we can treat each feature as a module. For eg., anything which is linked with the User such as models, controllers, DTOs, interfaces, etc., can be separated as a module. A module has a controller and a bunch of providers which are injectible functionalities like services, orm, emailer, etc.
- Controllers: Controllers in NestJS are interfaces between the network and your logic. They are used for handling requests and returning responses to the client side of the application (for example, call to the API).
- Providers (Services): Providers are injectable services/functionalities which can be injected into controllers and other providers to provide flexibility and extra functionality. They are designed to abstract any form of complexity and logic.
