Are You Customer Experience-Ready? Using CX to Achieve the Ultimate Return on Customer Relationship

Thursday, November 14, 2019

2:00 PM – 3:00 PM (ET)

Sponsored by:

Everyone is trying to make sense of customer experience (CX). Harvard Business Review defines CX as “the cumulative impact of your customer’s end-to-end journey with you, the multiple touch points over time which create a true competitive advantage to companies that get it right.”

But Harland Clarke thinks CX is more, defined by a belief that CX is a holistic strategy that actually starts at the consumer level — before they become customers — beginning with a consumer’s very first interaction with your brand, wherever and whenever they encounter it.

While it is key to meet and exceed consumer expectations during every interaction and encounter, it is particularly important that financial institutions perform well at the critical “moments of truth” like account openings, change events and other high-emotion customer service encounters, when costly attrition and growth-killing churn are highest.

CX is unlike everything else you measure – it’s not a short-term/today line-item metric or KPI–it’s longer. It’s a lifetime journey across all touch points and channels with the potential to provide the ultimate return on customer relationship.

Financial institutions are making significant investments in technology to improve the user experience. But CX is more than simply providing customers with an online or mobile account-activation solution – it’s about:

  • Brand Reputation Management – Building a process that connects with the consumer before an account is even opened and continue throughout the entire customer journey
  • Eliminating Friction – Delivering a holistic, seamless, customer experience connecting with customers when, where and how it matters
  • Delivering Relevance – Matching the capabilities and services of the financial institution to the needs and expectations of the customers
  • Creating Hyper-Personalized Experiences – Understanding customers as individuals and using customer data to anticipate their needs and create more personalized experiences
