Few organizations deliver outstanding experiences to their customers. In fact, only 6% of companies earned an “excellent” score in the 2018 Temkin Experience Ratings. To better understand which types of interactions are most likely to affect the customer’s perception of an organization, we asked customers to identify the most problematic journeys across 19 different industries. In this report, we:
- Examine feedback from 10,000 U.S. consumers about their journeys with 318 companies across 19 industries.
- Identify which customer journeys consumers think most need improvement and look at how those responses differ across age groups.
- Evaluate how different customer journeys impact five loyalty behaviors: likelihood to recommend the company, likelihood to repurchase from the company, likelihood to forgive the company if it makes a mistake, likelihood to trust the company, and likelihood of trying new offerings from the company.
- One of the key findings across industries is that journeys that touch customer service are often the most prevalent and the most impactful on customer loyalty.
Here’s the first figure in the report, which has a total of 58 figures (three detailed graphics for each of the industries):
