Cimigo constantly assist clients in mapping customer journeys, so that they may work to improve customer experience. From financial services to e-commerce to automotive sales there is no shortage of empirical evidence that moving beyond single customer touch points improves customer acquisition, experience satisfaction, retention and revenues per customer.
Mapping customer journeys pays dividends
The rise of e-commerce platforms in Asia meshing with bricks and mortar retail make the customer journey ever more important. Many platforms currently fail to understand how the two interact and focus on at e-platform visits and sales conversions in isolation.
With a thorough understanding and mapping of customer journeys the return on investment in e-commerce platforms becomes more evident with the impact on foot traffic and in store conversions and up selling. The ability to mesh e-platforms and in store mechanics can be far better deployed to measure the impact, improve upon it and encourage more sales conversions in the customer journey. A journey which is rarely a linear!
A recent article by McKinsey highlights show many companies focus on discreet touch points without consideration of the total journey. Most companies perform fairly well on touch points, but distinctive performance on journeys can set a company apart. Delivering a distinctive journey experience makes it more likely that customers repeat a purchase, spend more, recommend to their friends, and stay with your company.
