Welcome to the ExPEERience podcast, where leaders in the field of world-class Customer Experience (CX) share insights on how to differentiate your brand by delivering exceptional experiences.
Listen in on the dynamic conversation as host Paula Hansen, SAP Customer Experience Chief Revenue Officer, captures the stories, expertise and practical advice of thought leaders, executives and futurists who are defining the CX of tomorrow. Hear about advancements in technology that are helping to redefine customer experience and learn how your peers are leveraging new ideas to transform business today.
The podcast is presented by SAP, the world’s largest provider of enterprise application software.
In this episode, I’ve assembled a global cast of outstanding customer experience leaders to discuss the transformational effect a rich and robust community can have on the customer experience your brand delivers. Here’s just a taste:
- Tony Ambroza, Chief Brand Officer with Carhartt, tells me that a community-centric perspective was built into the company more than 130 years ago and continues to be what sets his company apart today.
- Brett Frazer, Vice President of Customer Service at Sunbasket, shares how they have tapped into the experiential knowledge aptitude of their best customers to help service other customers with great success.
- Frances Frei, professor at Harvard Business School, encourages brands with highly configurable products and services to leverage their customers, who often have specific experiences with and answers to tricky customer service inquiries.
- Anne Morriss, Executive Founder of The Leadership Consortium, says brands must find ways to capitalize on the peer-to-peer interactions customers have with each other as they interact with a brand.
- Adrian Swinscoe, author and customer experience advisor, cautions brands to not fall into the trap of assuming they're the experts for their own product or service, because it is actually the brand’s customers who are the true experts.
- Dan Gingiss, CX coach and keynote speaker, suggests brands take the bold step of asking customers why they choose to do business with the brand rather than the brand’s competitors, to uncover which differentiating factors the community cares most about.
And that’s just a start!
On the next episode of ExPEERience, we’ll talk about how brands need to respond when, not if, things go wrong. When mistakes happen, the relationship with your customer comes under threat. But done right, great CX can build trust, increase loyalty, and turn your unhappy customer into a lifelong fan.
