La Customer Experience è più importante nel B2B che nel B2C ?

AICEX: Post con uno spunto interessante.

In today’s business environment, we all know customer experience is important, and we’ve all heard about social media’s impact as the new “word of mouth”.

Too many companies are spending too much time focusing on the numbers (results) and not enough time on actually making improvements. We all know what it’s like when NPS results are about to be released. The business become tense whilst segment heads and product leads start to manage communications around the possible ‘number’. Having worries about a number drop or optimism about a number rise are understandable but too many companies are trapped in a cycle of quarterly or bi-annual panic.

So how do you get away from a culture of number watching? Below are some tips:
