Only 12% of Large Firms Receive at Least a "Good" Rating in Temkin Group Assessment
WABAN, Mass., Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Temkin Group released new research, State of Customer Experience Metrics, 2013. The report examines how 173 large companies use customer experience (CX) metrics and compares results to similar studies from the previous two years.
For the third straight year, Temkin Group found that very few companies have mastered the use of customer experience metrics. While 49% of respondents said that they were "good" or "very good" at using CX metrics, only 12% of respondents earned "good" or "very good" ratings in Temkin Group's assessment of CX metrics programs. These assessment ratings represent a small increase from 11% in 2012 and 10% in 2011.
"Many companies have some customer experience metrics, but few firms are actively putting those metrics to use," states Bruce Temkin, Managing Partner of Temkin Group.
Temkin Group's assessment evaluates four characteristics required for successful CX metrics efforts: Consistent (using the same core set of CX metrics across the organization), Impactful (using CX metrics to make key decisions), Integrated (making explicit trade-offs between CX and financial metrics), and Continuous (regularly reviewing CX metrics).
Here are some additional findings from the research:
