The big picture of customer experience

Surveys and interviews are just the beginning. A great CX requires massive amounts of data to create a comprehensive view that provides the most detailed—and therefore insightful—view of customers and the best ways to continually improve.

A Net Promoter score is helpful, but we factor in so much more when measuring customer experience. We use multiple enterprisewide CX programs, customer experience communities, advisory boards, and panels to fully understand the customer's perspective.
