What Are Customer Experience Management Programs?

A Customer Experience Management (CXM) Program is how a business oversees its interactions with customers. An example includes the Net Promoter System℠, which drives customer-centric strategies and builds customer loyalty. By using reliable metrics and closed-loop feedback systems, companies transform the customer experience to increase growth, profitability, and competitive advantages. These programs continually improve the strength of customer relationships and create mutual benefits among other stakeholders, especially employees and investors.
