Interactions are not limited to human contact; customers interact with a company’s systems, channels, and products that mold their view as well. These experiences customers have over the myriad interactions influence their perception of an organization.
Your field force are the key people who interact with customers, day in and day out. One of the foundations often used to ensure that your customers have a consistent experience is to create a customer journey map. When properly trained on and executed, it will guide your team to take the right actions at the right time and to ensure they understand when and how to best engage customers around different circumstances.
