Are You CX-y Enough for Your Customers?

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, a day that symbolizes love. And just as flowers and chocolate are the language of love for couples, the language of love between you and your customer is your CX.

What does your CX say about you? Do your customers find you CX-y? If you’re like most organizations, you don’t know. You know CX is a priority. You know you’ve invested in redesigning or upgrading your CX. But do you actually know how your customers feel about the CX you deliver? And, it’s no wonder so many of us don’t know how we’re doing — 96% of customers won’t tell organizations if they’ve had a bad experience.

Comparing Active and Passive Production Monitoring

Even the most thoroughly tested and optimized CX delivery systems are subject to unexpected failures and degradation, and CX monitoring allows an enterprise to detect these before their customers do. As covered in this Cyara Resources article, CX production monitoring is designed to check the performance of your CX delivery systems.

Lessons Learnt: Is 'Black Christmas' Good or Bad for Customer Experience?

Black Christmas is the period that starts when the big UK retail brands decide to launch their Christmas TV campaigns and ends on Black Friday (or Cyber Monday if you have any cash left!). You’ve never heard the term ‘Black Christmas’? That’s because I’ve just named it. So now it’s a ‘thing’ my friends.

I’m sure some people love this period –  ‘retail therapy’ addicts, serial bargain hunters, or just the Wizzard fans who “wish it could be Christmas every day”.

The Benefits of Taking Your CX Development Agile

We’re all consumers, and we know from our own behavior that our expectations are evolving as technology evolves, which is becoming increasingly rapid.
