The best experience isn’t necessarily the most luxurious › Basic brands that consistently meet or exceed customers’ expectations score well I am a dm girl myself. I think it's because the prices are cheap (cheapest among German drugstores I believe) but the shops are lovely. All tidy and bright so you never have the feeling you're in a "scruffy" cheap shop © 2013 Forrester Research, Inc. Reproduction Prohibited 25

Brands can break free of their industry for a competitive advantage › Although firms in the same industry often group together in a small range of CXi scores, some brands manage to break free of their peers › ING DiBa in Germany achieved an excellent score. I found a customer who was keen to tell me about her experience: We just got our mortgage there. Easy procedures and really competent and quick customer service. © 2013 Forrester Research, Inc.

Banks can’t price their way out of way out of the business impact of a bad CX › Forrester found that, for US consumers, CX trumps price-value perception as a loyalty driver for banks and retailers › Old school marketing and incentives won’t mask a mediocre experience © 2013 Forrester Research, Inc. Reproduction Prohibited 27

French banks vie for usefulness, ease, and enjoyability › In the race between La Banque Postale (73) and Crédit Mutuel (71): • La Banque Postale is rated as better for meeting customers’ needs and being easy • But Crédit Mutuel (―la banque a qui parler‖) is rated more enjoyable • Crédit Mutuel also fares better with high income consumers and technology optimists … both desirable segments © 2013 Forrester Research, Inc. Reproduction Prohibited 28

What’s next?

There’s more to the data than just CXi › Three loyalty questions • Willingness to consider for another purchase • Likelihood to recommend • Likelihood to switch › Word of mouth dynamics › Consumer demographics › Technology attitudes © 2013 Forrester Research, Inc. Reproduction Prohibited 30

CXi is designed to be a springboard for additional analysis › Understand the competitive landscape › Prioritize improvement opportunities › Focus next-level research › Structure internal CX metrics › Feed data into broad ROI models © 2013 Forrester Research, Inc. Reproduction Prohibited 31

Recommendations › Start to measure your company’s CXi • Both overall (brand health) and in specific channels and interactions (transactional) • Find your gaps and opportunities to improve › Identify the drivers of CX quality • Identify the causes of good and bad experiences • Build a hypothesis – then measure the statistical relationship between your driver questions and the three criteria that make up the CXi › Make CXi part of the daily vocabulary at all levels of your organization © 2013 Forrester Research, Inc.
