Retailers that listen to—and act on—the Voice of the Customer (VoC) can expect a marked improvement in overall customer satisfaction. This isn’t theory. It’s fact.

The B2B environment is an ideal hunting ground for customer experience (CX) ambush zombies, like the Hypno Hulk and Helter Hydra. These stealthy undead hide in the communication gaps between vendors and their clients, they stalk their prey within teams of project stakeholders, and they spread confusion that grinds progress to a halt.
Nobody gets away with a casual approach to the customer experience these days. If you want your clients to feel anything remotely close to loyalty, you’ll need to place them at the center of your business. Today, customer-centric brands have a distinct and growing advantage over their dated counterparts.
Voice of Customer (VoC) in 2015 is more than an exercise in collecting insights; it’s an opportunity to strengthen loyal customer relationships and deliver key elements of your differentiated customer experience. Need proof? 644 consumers and 131 brand representatives ranked top CX trends for the year and shared insights—and that’s what they told us. Only they said it better.
Take the customer stories our products collect to the next level by creating an empathy map, inspired by Copyblogger Media. This exercise combines key stakeholders and decision makers in your company to discuss how your brand experience can better meet your customers’ wants, needs, and expectations.
For this executive report, Call Center IQ conducted their research with an audience of customer service, customer experience, and contact center professionals. Respondents represented buy-side organizations, vendor organizations, and independent consultancies. A panel of 7 channel technology professionals, including InMoment President Lonnie Mayne, were also called upon to contribute insights from their experience with the omnichannel customer experience.
Voice of the Customer (VoC) technology lets retailers infuse customer feedback across the enterprise. How? First, by capturing it. Because you can’t infuse what you can’t hear. What’s more—just humor us for a second—you can’t hear what you can’t see. Okay, so that’s not entirely true, but in the case of enterprise-wide customer listening, you do need to let text analytics, dashboards, and visual reporting do the heavy lifting, because your ears just can’t get the job done on that scale.
Consumers talk. They do it on a scale that staggers. They do it at a speed that mystifies. They open their mouths and reveal their hearts. The yarns they spin explain current behaviors and expose future trends—to those with the listening capabilities to keep up, that is. This report shows the ways top retailers can tune in and turn out high-value customer experiences.

As our world advances and develops, technology is becoming a great differentiator. Sure, technology’s only as good as the people who use it, but having the best tools in the business doesn’t hurt either. As the citizens of the world generate unstructured data by the zettabyte, view a few bytes of our own to wrap your head around the Brobdingnagian proportion of this data. Making sense of unstructured data is a messy job; using InMoment’s text analytics can make it a cinch.
Credit where it‘s due: Structured customer surveys changed the way companies do business. They helped alter customer expectations and shape the definition of a “great” brand experience. But that was then. A new shift is underway, and it’s ending the incumbency of traditional customer surveys. The future of the VoC industry is now in the hands of robust text analytics.
Customer comments are more important than ratings, scores, trends, and key drivers. This truth is apparent once we remember that data-heavy surveys began as an imperfect stand-in for real customer dialog. The text analytics you choose will determine the number and quality of insights gleaned from these customer comments. Why? Statistical text analytics models turn the patterns of language into a math problem, while linguistic models teach computers to understand language the way humans do. Don’t choose tech from 2009.

Roll the film.
A systematic approach to both customer and employee engagement will raise satisfaction levels and sales, but are businesses maximising the benefits and senior management buying-in? Exclusive research from CGA Peach and InMoment reveals a need for more joined-up thinking, especially when it comes to front-line teams.
Recent research among senior executives, carried out by CGA Peach in conjunction with InMoment, shows that, while there is a growing commitment across the hospitality sector to invest in customer engagement and feedback, there remains a significant opportunity to extract more meaningful insights, drive operational change and improvement, and see a greater return on investment. Here’s what was discovered.

Hear from members of the Halfords team to learn more about how they did it.
Some brands get away with taking a casual approach to their customer experience. But, unless you’re one of those imaginary organizations, you’re probably not getting away with anything. In today’s Age of the Customer, intelligent companies have a distinct advantage over their lackadaisical counterparts. Fortunately for companies that aren’t as with the program (the Voice of the Customer (VoC) program that is), there are facets common to all successful brands, which can be learned and adopted with relative ease.
Truly customer-centric organizations seek out the technology that best allows them to listen to their customers—both individually and in aggregate. These same organizations also modify and refine their roles, responsibilities, and reporting structures as necessary to account for the new customer-centric business climate.
