Companies across industries around the globe increase their investment in customer experiences amid a challenging business environment
Qualtrics is now the only platform that allows companies to listen, analyze and act on feedback from all sources to build deeper relationships with stakeholders
PROVO, Utah & SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Qualtrics (Nasdaq: XM), the leader and creator of the experience management (XM) category, today announced that hundreds of leading companies chose Qualtrics during the first quarter of 2022 to deliver great customer experiences during an uncertain time.
Microsoft, SumUp, Kroger, Google Cloud, and EY were among customers who chose Qualtrics to help them listen, analyze and act on feedback from all sources to build deeper relationships with stakeholders.
“Customer experience is top of mind for every leader–they’re all trying to find and keep customers,” said Brad Anderson, Qualtrics President of Products and Services, “and we give them the ultimate advantage by helping them build deep, personal relationships. With Qualtrics, they can uncover unmet needs and build the products, services and experiences customers want. And we help them do that with empathy, speed, and scale.”
Today’s companies are facing a number of headwinds, including supply chain disruptions and inflationary pressures. In times of uncertainty, understanding the real-time needs of customers is even more valuable. Qualtrics allows organizations to uncover unmet needs and take action to create the products, services and experiences their customers want.
New Innovations Drive Deeper Customer Relationships
As customers increasingly interact with companies through digital channels, businesses need a new approach to building deeper customer relationships by measuring how each customer feels about their digital experience and understanding where to take action. While online channels are inherently transactional, customers are more likely to come back when the experience is effortless and evokes a positive emotion.
Digital Experience Metrics, built into Qualtrics CustomerXM, includes a set of scientifically validated questions that measure three key aspects of any digital experience: emotion (measured by customer satisfaction), effort (measured by how easy or difficult was it to complete a task) and success (measured by task completion). New Qualtrics research, embedded and available within the DX Metrics, shows that increasing a customer’s satisfaction score can increase their spending by up to 37%. Reducing the effort required to complete a task online can lead to a 23% increase in their spending.
This validated approach to measuring the three core aspects of the digital experience helps companies benchmark and compare their metrics against similar organizations in their industry, giving brands better visibility into their performance and opportunities to increase revenue. It also includes dashboard templates and recommendations to help marketing and product leaders understand how certain factors, such as the account creation process or web checkout user experience improvements, impact customer sentiment the most, and which actions they can take to improve each factor.
