A great meeting this week with an equally great presentation from Marie-Claire Grady from 3rd View Consulting discussing Better Customer Experiences. Marie-Claire discussed the difference between being customer focused and providing customer service in your business. To be competitive in your industry your business needs to be more customer focused than merely providing good customer service. The use of customer journey mapping is a useful tool in order to improve outcomes for the customer and your business. Any business, particularly service orientated businesses should be focusing on connecting with customers for Better Business.
