|About this title|
|Three factors are fueling the growth of customer experience data: automation in the customer touch points, maturing markets for customer data, and consumer sophistication in sharing customer experience. Today's customers have the ability to use a variety of media to broadcast their good and bad experiences in real time. Successful organizations are responding with an investment in real-time Customer Experience Analytics (CEA) to improve their customer relationships, products, and processes.|
