A CX solution for anyone working within a limited budget -- smaller teams, nonprofits, startups, social enterprises & others
Customer Experience work is all about creating value for the people you’re working to serve. Market leaders in for-profit sectors are investing billions in CX to grow revenues, increase margins, reduce costs and drive loyalty. High stakes battles are won and lost by delivering better experiences, delighting users and establishing loyalty. However, the benefits achieved through effective customer experience programs typically come from spending millions of dollars.
Smaller companies and other organizations can also benefit greatly from gaining a better understanding of their customers, clients, beneficiaries, members, patients and other stakeholders. And CX practices offer great insights to help drive mission attainment in social impact work. Nonprofits and mission-driven companies can make a bigger difference in people's lives by gaining empathy for the people they serve. Because the more you know about someone's journey the more likely it is that you'll be able to help. Unfortunately, CX programs tend to be expensive...really expensive. Successful CX initiatives typically require experienced staff, significant research dollars, multiple consultants and complex integration of budget-busting technology.
