New York, NY (PRWEB) February 21, 2013
Customer Management IQ, a division of IQPC announces its 5th Customer Experience Summit, taking place May 20 - 23, 2013 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
“The digital age has changed the way customers act and think and the greatest opportunity lies with organizations that can understand this new customer’s needs, behaviors and expectations and deliver on them,” says CMIQ’s Zandile Mnguni.
Companies in the US invest billions of dollars a year on customer service activities; yet poor customer experience costs about $80 billion a year in lost sales, with more than 60% of those unhappy customers opting for a competitor.
Traditionally, brands have relied on marketing strategies revolving around pushing products through expensive advertising campaigns, rich print and online collaterals to gain market share. Now, pre- and post-purchase delivery of service and information to customers is redefining the way brands are perceived by their audiences. The Customer Experience Summit is the only event that will provide key insights and strategies for designing, implementing and managing the evolving multichannel customer experience in a dynamic environment.
