What’s all the Buzz around Customer Experience (CX)?
You have an amazing new website and great capabilities presentation, the sales team has more leads than they know what to do with, and you’re bringing in new customers left and right! Then, you find out a new customer had to wait on hold yesterday to reach your company’s service representative for a whopping 82 minutes. Or that their shipment was never delivered and four days later, you’re still not able to tell them why. Or worse, they inquired about purchasing another service from you on your website, and never heard from anyone to get it rolling. These are all symptoms many industry organizations face when tackling CX. According to Jeff Davis, founder of Jd2 Consulting and TMSA’s 2018 Conference Keynote, 2020 will be year that CX overtakes price and product as key brand differentiators.

Consider these startling facts about today’s typical CX in the B2B world:

  • Organizations recognize the need to take action regarding CX. Yet, 75% of B2B organizations engage in isolated, bottom-up initiatives, often with little data other than an innate sense that something is not quite working and needs to be fixed (Source: Gartner)
  • Although most B2B companies realize that CX is important, fewer than a quarter of companies actually emphasize it. (Source: Forbes)
  • 80% of B2B executives believe that offering outstanding CX is directly connected to generating better business results and ensuring the company has a competitive advantage. (Source: Accenture)
  • Customers want to work with companies and brands that don’t just satisfy a market need, but make things easier.
