Customer Journey

The customer journey encompasses the customer’s interaction with a brand from start to finish. The steps in that journey will look slightly different depending on the customer’s issue and channel they use. but Things to consider include:

  • Efficiency: Can the customer easily find what they need without extra confusing, or repetitive steps?
  • Convenience: Is every step easy and accessible?
  • Speed: Do you have a short Average Handle Time (AHT) so customers aren’t kept waiting by technical issues or busy call centers?
  • Personalization: Have you designed the customer journey with your customers’ specific needs in mind?
  • Positive outcomes: Can your customers easily resolve their issues and are they made to feel understood and valued?

The ideal customer journey should be empowering, giving them control of their experience. You can ensure that you are providing your customers with the best possible experience with:

  • Proper research: Understanding your customers’ needs, wants, and habits are the foundation of designing an excellent customer journey.
  • Multiple communication channels: Research can also tell you the channels your customers prefer, such as digital messaging, chatbots, text messaging, or another channel.
  • The right technology: Artificial intelligence (AI), interactive voice response (IVR), and other technologies can enhance the customer journey and make it easier for you to monitor customer interactions to improve them.
  • The right people: From call center agents who speak directly with customers to IT specialists working behind the scenes to maintain your channels, many kinds of experts make the customer journey a smooth one.
