The Customer Experience Journey
What do my customers want? Astute executives are asking this question more frequently than ever—and for good reason. Leading retail companies understand that they are in the customer-experience business. How they deliver for customers is as important as what products they deliver.
This year’s NACS Leadership Forum takes attendees on a journey of their own to discover how they can become a more customer-centric organization. Speakers will help attendees navigate the steps needed to improve customer experience, moving from individual touchpoints to end-to-end journeys.
Customer journeys are a progression of touchpoints that collectively add up to the experience customers get when they engage with companies. Seeing the world as their customers do helps leading companies better organize and activate employees around customer needs. Paying attention to the complete, end-to-end experience customers have with a company from their perspective can yield remarkable insights.
Designing the customer experience requires restructuring interactions into different sequences and soon requires digitizing processes, reorienting company cultures and enhancing new approaches. Agile, digital-focused companies significantly outperform competitors, according to studies. To achieve impressive results, businesses must embrace new ways of working.
Rewiring a company to provide leading customer experiences can take several years and requires active engagement from company leaders and frontline staff. Executives at customer-centered companies engage employees at every level of an organization, working directly with them in retail settings, taking calls and venturing out into the field.
Delighting customers by mastering the concept and execution of an exceptional good customer experience is a huge challenge. But it is an essential requirement for leading in today’s retail environment.
