State of Customer Experience 2016
How Organizations Are Leveraging Customer Experience Programs to Build Customer Loyalty and Grow Long-term Revenue
Often referred to as “CX,” Customer Experience helps to explain customers’ overall experiences with their vendors, including the discovery phase, evaluation of products and services, sales engagement, usage of solutions, any service and support interactions, and eventual “end of life” or replacement of the product.
Much has been written about Customer Experience Analysis in the recent past. While Customer Experience initiatives are most visible in the Business-to-Consumer (B2C) market, the prevalence of customer focused organizations continues to gain traction in Business-to-Business (B2B) settings as well, particularly as B2B managers increasingly hold the same expectations of customer service for firms they do business with in their personal lives as those in their professional lives.
