89% of Companies Lack Well-Developed Strategy to Improve Customer Experience: Econsultancy

Why the merger between creative and tech? It’s the customer experience, silly. An Econsultancy study for emarsys of Asia/Pacific marketers found that just 11% have a well developed strategy to improve customer experience and just 7% are seamlessly integrated across channels. Biggest barriers are experience complexity (44%), disjointed data (34%), and siloed organizations (34%). Marketing is in charge of customer experience more than half the time (54%), far more often than sales (12%), customer insight (6%), operations (5%), or customer service/support (4%). No one is charge 7% of the time.
