Unlocking business growth with customer journey management

Consumers are in the driver’s seat when it comes to brand experiences. They decide when, where and how they want to engage with a brand. And whether interacting with the brand online or in-person, they expect a personalized, seamless and connected experience every time. Delivering this experience requires that brands truly understand their customers and their journeys throughout the lifetime of the relationship.

This “strategic approach to understanding an individual’s need in the moment, to meet the need as early as possible, and in the most convenient manner for the individual” is defined as customer journey management by Winterberry Group.

Seventy-seven percent of the brands are investing in customer journey management disciplines and technologies, but few are excelling at it. In fact, only 17 percent of brands are delivering consistent experiences across the entire journey. What does it take to deliver a truly unique brand experience across channels and at scale for every individual customer? We worked with Winterberry Group on research exploring this very topic — what it takes for brands to excel at customer journey management.
