COVID-19: Our operations are not impacted, and we continue to support our clients at full capacity.


A new digital empowered society is emerging, and marketers need to shift to a customer-centric mindset to meet the evolving needs of their customers. This has pushed understanding and improving the customer experience (CX) to the forefront.


CX is the new battleground

Digitally empowered customers interact with your brand when and how they want. This 'on-demand' mentality has created a customer that has increasingly high expectations. As a result, the customer experience is paramount and has to be the number one focus for your marketing strategy. 

No longer can the experience be an afterthought. To succeed, it has to be at the epicenter of a brand's DNA.

Key characteristics of digital CX

What are the key characteristics of CX?

The customer experience is often used as an all-encompassing term. Bruce Temkin, co-founder and chair of the CX Professionals Association (CXPA), defines it as the perception that customers have of their interactions with an organization.

Annette Frantz, the Principal of CX Journeys and a CXPA board member, defines it as:

(a) the sum of all the interactions that a customer has with a company over the course of the relationship lifecycle

(b) the customer's feelings, emotions, and perceptions of the brand over the course of those interactions.

At the end of the day, the customer experience is any interaction an individual has with a brand. This can span from the in-store experience to the call center to contact center to digital interactions, which include the in-app, mobile, desktop and tablet experiences.


Why is CX important?

The experience is your key differentiator.
And below are the main reasons why you can't ignore it:


Harris Interactive found 86 percent of consumers stop interacting with and buying from businesses if they have a bad experience.

Experience over price
Gartner identified that 64 percent of people think that CX is more important than price in their choice of a brand.
buyers will pay more for better CX
Forbes found that 86 percent of buyers will pay more for a better customer experience. Yet only 1 percent of customers feel that vendors consistently meet their expectations.
key factor in brand loyalty and it's impact on the digital CX
According to Econsultancy 89 percent of consumers said a great experience is a key factor in brand loyalty.
multichannel integration, a key component of CX
Oracle reported that multichannel integration - a key component of a great customer experience - has the ability to increase profitability by 25 percent.
digital CX is a competitive differentiator
According to Gartner 89 percent of companies plan to compete primarily on the basis of CX by 2016.


Whether you are looking for a competitive advantage, a reduced churn rate, an increase in loyalty or revenue, focusing on the experience will pave the road to achieving those goals.

CX Management

CX Management

This is when organizations are tasked with strategically planning and managing how customers interact with their brand. This practice is a discipline that must be mastered and then leveraged to ensure that consumers have exposure to the company, enjoy optimal experiences and ultimately should be led to engage in a transaction.

Customer experience management is the practice of closing the gap between the expected experience and the actual experience. One of the most effective ways to achieve this is through a Voice of the Customer solution which collects customer intentions, needs and expectations to understand and ultimately improve the CX.

Voice of the Customer

Voice of the Customer and CX

Today customers know more about your products, services and pricing than you do and their expectations are higher than ever. CMOs are recognizing that CX is the new marketing and are turning to Voice of Customer analytics to help them gain insight into their customers.
By leveraging Voice of Customer analytics marketers can now better measure and manage the customer journey. According to Harvard Business Review, 80 percent of organizations use customer satisfaction (CSAT) scores, one of the main Voice of Customer metrics, as their primary metric to measure the experience.


This makes the voice of your customers essential in moving the needle and improving the customer experience. By collecting information on your customer’s intent, needs, and experiences across digital platforms you better understand strengths and weaknesses from a customer’s perspective.

Marketing technologies and CX

Marketing technologies and CX

From the rapid adoption of mobile technology to programmatic advertising to the promise of big data, the marketing industry is undergoing a seismic shift driven primarily by technology. As the marketing technology landscape grows so does its impact on the customer experience. Every interaction that a customer has with your brand impacts their experience.
Retargeting customers that have previously visited your website to live chat interactions, all leave an impression on your customers. This places immense importance on how well your marketing technologies adapt to different customer's needs and expectations to provide relevant and effective interactions that will generate a positive CX.
