 Customer Experience Management (CEM) Boosts CRM Strategies

Customer experience management (CEM or CXM) includes both the individual experience in a single transaction as well as the sum of all experiences between a customer and a supplier over the duration of their relationship. A customer's perception of an organization is built as a result of their interactions across multiple-channels and different areas of the organization. Companies that succeed in delivering consistently positive CEM experiences enjoy increased customer loyalty, customer share, repeat business and vocal advocates promoting the company in online and offline channels.

CRM solutions focus on sales, marketing and support from the company perspective. CEM has emerged to focus on the customer needs and desires. CEM solutions integrate strategy, processes and technology to optimize each customer experience.
