“CX is the customer’s perceptions and related feelings caused by the one-off and cumulative effect of interactions with a supplier’s employees, systems, channels or products.”

Gartner defines key points in addressing exceptional customer experience:

  • Establish a unified vision and architecture to bring together the cross-functional resources for exceptional branded moments at every customer touchpoint
  • Align to and influence other customer experience initiatives resident in other functional areas
  • Layer in data as the context that ensures customer experiences are relevant and timely
  • Identify and retain your best customers with strategies that drive brand preference and loyalty
  • Turn loyal customers into the vocal advocates who multiply their own value
  • Measure and optimize the compound benefits of the three “Vs” — value, voice and valence —to drive loyalty and advocacy over time:
  • “Value” is the lifetime economic value of customers.
  • “Voice” is your customers’ satisfaction, suggestions and sentiment.
  • “Valence” is direction of positive or negative affinity over time.
