Finding the ROI of Customer Experience: It's Out There If You Look for It

Latest Issue of TeleTech's Customer Strategist Journal Explores the Dramatic Business Impacts of Improving Customer Experience

DENVER, Oct. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TeleTech Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: TeleTech) We've all read the studies that tell us it costs far more to deliver a bad customer experience than a good one. But do we all know how much? Research shows that when customer experience metrics such as customer satisfaction and Net Promoter® Score (NPS) tick up, increases in profits, and other business results usually follow.

Many business leaders believe there's a correlation between providing customers with great experiences and positive changes in business performance, but they struggle to connect the dots between the two. Almost half (47.3 percent) of the nearly 100 customer experience professionals surveyed in the 2014 1to1 Media/Temkin Group study, Measuring the ROI of Customer Experience, said that their organizations are either "ineffective" or "very ineffective" at measuring the business impact of customer experience.

Each quarter TeleTech publishes its latest thinking in its executive journal, Customer Strategist, where consultants and analysts bring their thought leadership to a wider audience. The firm's global work with leading companies in telecommunications, financial services, healthcare, retail and government sectors is the basis for the articles in this issue. These pieces reflect on how clients are differentiating their companies through customer experience innovation.

"In our latest issue of Customer Strategist, we explore how improvements in customer experience can have a dramatic impact on increasing customer value and business profitability," said Mark Grindeland, chief marketing officer at TeleTech. "We've identified successful measurement strategies being executed in the contact center and across digital channels, found ROI being tracked in financial services and uncovered how employee engagement impacts the economics of customer service."
