Full interview (original is only available in german):
What means Customer Experience Excellence for you?
For us, customer experience excellence means a comprehensive presence along the entire customer journey. Both by means of the familiar channels such as e-mail, chat and telephone, but also directly on the digital platforms. Nowadays, more than ever, companies need to be present at every digital touchpoint and service channel in order to truly speak of an omnichannel strategy. This is now expected by the customer! So, in order to offer 360-degree service, brands must also serve their (potential) customers on online marketplaces, app stores, online stores and Google My Business.
Where do you see the biggest construction site preventing excellence in customer experience?
We definitely see the biggest CX construction site in the neglect of effective review management. Reviews and questions, i.e. customer feedback on platforms, are not perceived as a service channel by many companies, as these touchpoints are still relatively new in the omnichannel landscape. However, this service channel is more relevant than ever! Not least because 1:N communication takes place here, but in addition the shift to digital POS has also increased in recent years! E-commerce is booming and consumers are constantly digital via their mobile devices and social media. So it’s clear to us that effective review management is the biggest building site for customer experience excellence!
What do you see as a useful lever for achieving more customer experience excellence quickly?
Active review management enables companies to better strategically position themselves at the digital point of sale in the future and thus provide a better customer experience. Potential customers today gather extensive information online before making a final purchase decision. It is essential to respond to reviews and questions on marketplaces. Analyzing and evaluating reviews quickly provides information about customer sentiment and reveals potential for brand improvement. Active review management thus makes it possible to detect and analyze customer behavior in real time and thus orchestrate a variety of optimized experience moments to customers.
What do you consider to be part of good #xcExcellence management?
As mentioned earlier, responding to reviews and questions in the form of customer service is essential to making customers feel noticed and well served. The analysis of reviews – i.e. customer feedback – helps companies to optimize their CX, to show strengths and weaknesses of products, services of their own brand as well as of competitors. Market Research 2.0! A multitude of customer insights creates the possibility of market research on a new level. I would even go so far as to claim that traditional market research can be replaced in this cost-effective way. The use of Big Data in AI-driven sentiment analysis thus makes it possible to easily evaluate customer feedback and must therefore be part of excellent customer experience!
In which areas do you see technology potential for more #cxExcellence?
The use of review management software enables efficient customer experience management. Not only areas such as product development, sales and marketing benefit from this. Customer service and support also benefit from the centralized management and processing of customer reviews and questions on all online platforms. The USP of our gominga review manager is the mapping of a multitude of platforms, review types AS WELL as the direct interaction with the customer! This makes Customer Experience Excellence easy.
