2010 Customer Experience Impact Report

71,447 views

Published on

The 2010 customer experience impact report cited that 82% of consumers have stopped doing business with
a company as a result of a negative experience. What is different from years past is that
companies now understand this phenomenon and have seen the impact that a negative
experience can have on its reputation and bottom line (heard of “United Breaks
Guitars” anyone?). Companies invest in customer service to avoid bad experiences, but
what is the impact of a positive one?
The 2010 Customer Experience Impact Report, commissioned by RightNow and
conducted by Harris Interactive®, unveiled some significant results on how much
consumers are willing to spend to ensure a superior customer experience and the
overall influence customer experience has on a company’s top and bottom line.
