A batota, ainda e sempre a batota

No ano passado reflectimos aqui no blogue sobre a encenação de experiências para os clientes (série - Uma apologia da batota: parte I; parte II; parte III; parte IV; parte V; parte VI e parte VII).
.
Entretanto, encontrei um artigo publicado na Harvard Business Review, em Fevereiro de 2007, que se enquadra perfeitamente no tema da batota, para desenhar as interacções com os clientes. O artigo chama-se “Understanding Customer Experience” escrito por Christopher Meyer e Andre Schwager.

“Some companies don’t understand why they should worry about customer experience. Others collect and quantify data on it but don’t circulate the findings. Still others do the measuring and distributing but fail to make anyone responsible for putting the information to use. The extent of the problem has been documented in Bain & Company’s recent survey of the customers of 362 companies. Only 8% of them described their experience as “superior,” yet 80% of the companies surveyed believe that the experience they have been providing is indeed superior. With such a disparity, prospects for improvement are small. But the need is urgent: Consumers have a greater number of choices today than ever before, more complex choices, and more channels through which to pursue them.”

“Customer satisfaction is essentially the culmination of a series of customer experiences or, one could say, the net result of the good ones minus the bad ones. It occurs when the gap between customers’ expectations and their subsequent experiences has been closed. To understand how to achieve satisfaction, a company must deconstruct it into its component experiences. Because a great many customer experiences aren’t the direct consequence of the brand’s messages or the company’s actual offerings, a company’s reexamination of its initiatives and choices will not suffice.”

“Customer experience is the internal and subjective response customers have to any direct or indirect contact with a company.”
