Due to interchangeable products and markets getting more and more transparent (link in german), customer experience is gaining more and more importance. Customer satisfaction and enthusiasm are key factors to be successful now and in the future.
In reality, achieving a positive customer experience is quite difficult. Negative experiences are shared about sixteen times while positive ones are only shared about nine times (link in german). Taking the significance of customer evaluations in the purchase process into account, this is fatal. Companies need to practice effective customer experience management to grow and achieve competitive advantages.
Still, most companies aren't successful in this area, although there is a general positive trend towards an increased focus on customer experience. Among other things, this results from ever faster growing customer expectations.
In addition, european managers tend to underestimate the importance of this factor. This applies especially to the DACH region (link in german). While 90% of managers in the U.S. regard customer experience as an important factor for success, only 55% of managers in the DACH region share this opinion.
A survey of the consulting company Sopra Steria (link in german) says that descisionmakers in companies evaluate the state of their customer experience management much more positively than it is in reality.
One reason for this contradictory relation is that customer feedback in social media is not included in the evaluation. In this area, the DACH region is lagging behind, too: Social data is used 20% less than the european average.
But in fact this data is particularly important in the context of customer satisfaction (link in german). With the help of software tools, an appopriate analysis of relevant customer activity can be ensured, despite the difficulty of an ever-changing digital landscape. This way, customers can be adressed in a personalized manner in real-time and thus customer experience can be improved.
