Customer Experience (CX), sometimes called Customer Experience Management (CXM or CEM), is often used to describe an organization’s ongoing efforts to measure and improve its customers’ perceptions and experiences.
Why is Customer Experience Management (CXM or CEM) important?
Every successful business understands the importance of listening carefully to customers, understanding what they need, and using that information to become more efficient and responsive. But as organizations grow and become more complex, these crucial personal customer connections become more difficult to manage. This is especially true in a world where people interact with modern businesses in thousands of different ways across many touchpoints.
Building a Smart, Successful CX Program
Most organizations have some kind of formal customer experience program in place. These programs work to align a company’s actions around a customer-centric strategy, spread customer intelligence throughout an organization, and to establish an appropriate governance structure. The most successful CX programs play a crucial role in unifying and aligning frontline employees, management, product teams, and executive leadership around customers’ core needs.
Technology plays a crucial role in these CX efforts by enabling companies to gather feedback from many different touchpoints, analyze it, and distribute it to the people responsible for making positive changes in specific areas. With an effective Experience Improvement (XI) platform, businesses can identify customer issues and trends earlier, respond quicker, and turn everyday customer experiences into key competitive advantages.
