Companies of all stripes have invested heavily in tools and technologies to help them understand their customers more deeply and to gain the advantages of superior customer experience (CX). Yet as leaders strive to form a more complete picture of customer preferences and behaviors, they continue to rely on aging survey-based measurement systems that for decades have formed the backbone of CX efforts. Companies use these systems to track CX performance through brand or relationship surveys, “close the loop” on customer feedback via post-transaction surveys, and even plot strategic moves by attempting to mine the feedback from their regular surveys over time.

The trouble is, executives increasingly recognize that survey-based measurement systems fail to meet their companies’ CX needs—although surveys themselves are an important tool for conducting research. In fact, this article draws on our recent survey of more than 260 CX leaders from US-based companies of all sizes. 1 Ninety-three percent of these respondents reported using a survey-based metric (such as Customer Satisfaction Score or Customer Effort Score) as their primary means of measuring CX performance, but only 15 percent of leaders said they were fully satisfied with how their company was measuring CX—and only 6 percent expressed confidence that their measurement system enables both strategic and tactical decision making

A few leading companies are pioneering a better approach that takes full advantage of the wealth of data now available. Today, companies can regularly, lawfully, and seamlessly collect smartphone and interaction data from across their customer, financial, and operations systems, yielding deep insights about their customers. Those with an eye toward the future are boosting their data and analytics capabilities and harnessing predictive insights to connect more closely with their customers, anticipate behaviors, and identify CX issues and opportunities in real time.

In this article, we explore how data and analytics are beginning to transform the art and science of customer experience. We present new research that brings clarity and a fact base to the shortcomings of survey-based measurement systems. We then examine how a few leaders have implemented data-driven CX systems and in turn reduced churn, boosted revenue, and lowered cost to serve. We end with insight on how to get started, including four key steps for CX leaders as they transition toward data-driven insight and action.

The CX programs of the future will be holistic, predictive, precise, and clearly tied to business outcomes. Evidence suggests that the advantages will be substantial for companies that start building the capabilities, talent, and organizational structure needed for this transition. Those that stick with the traditional systems will be forced to play catch- up in the years to come

While surveys themselves are a valid means of gathering customer insight, they fall short as a management tool for measuring CX performance and identifying and acting on CX opportunities. For organizations to lead from a customer-centric position, they increasingly need a comprehensive view of the full customer journey, as well as the ability to obtain deep, granular insight on what is driving customer experience. They need immediate and individual signals in order to take action “in the moment” and to create relevant experiences for each customer, and they need to demonstrate that the experience enhancements they would like to invest in will result in positive ROI.

Disadvantags of survey-based CX measurement

1. Limited: The typical CX survey samples only 7 percent of a company’s customers, providing an extremely limited view of what customers experience and value. In fact, only 13 percent of the CX leaders we surveyed expressed full confidence that their CX measurement system provides a representative view of their customer base

2. Reactive: Surveys are a backward-looking tool in a world where customers expect their concerns to be resolved increasingly quickly. Nearly two-thirds of respondents ranked the ability to act on CX issues in near real time as among their top three priorities, but only 13 percent of leaders expressed certainty that their organizations could achieve this level of rapid insight through existing systems

3. Ambiguous: Surveys often fail to reveal the root causes of customer sentiment. In fact, scores can vary based on many outside factors, including geographical bias and industry shocks, making it difficult to perform reliable root-cause analysis using surveys alone. Only 16 percent of CX leaders said that surveys provide them with granular- enough data to address the root causes of CX performance

4. Unfocused: As one executive at a large financial-services company put it, “The association between survey-based scores and business outcomes is not well understood, and, as a result, many parts of the organization simply claim a business impact from their CX initiatives with no real evidence.” Several companies have recently come under fire for basing investment decisions on a survey-based score alone. Remarkably, of the CX leaders we surveyed, only 4 percent said that their system lets them calculate the ROI of CX decisions

Predictive customer scores

The company develops analytics—often using several types of machine-learning algorithms—to understand and track what is influencing customer satisfaction and business performance, and to detect specific events in customer journeys. The algorithms generate predictive scores for each customer based on journey features. These scores allow the company to predict individual customer satisfaction and value outcomes such as revenue, loyalty, and cost to serve. More broadly, they allow CX leaders to assess the ROI for particular CX investments and directly tie CX initiatives to business outcomes

Action and insight engine

Information, insights, and suggestions are shared with a broad set of employees (including frontline agents) and tools (such as customer-relationship-management platforms) through an application-programming-interface (API) layer. For example, agents can receive alerts and notifications about the actions they should take to personalize customer experiences and improve CX outcomes. The API layer serves as a single source of truth, fueling recommendation engines based on both the data lake and customer scores. Importantly, the predictive platform, unlike survey-based systems, delivers timely insights and spurs swift action, both by employees and through digital interfaces.

While age and comorbidities likely accounted for higher mortality, it is interesting to note that those aged 78–97 years had the lowest mortality (p = 0.0393). This differs from prior findings in the literature that found that age >65 years was an independent predictor of mortality in IE. 26 This difference in our population could be due to sev- eral reasons. One is that those living past 78 years may not have suffered the comorbidities of those in next youngest age group, such as CHD due to ESRD. It also could be an age- related general decrease in immune status predisposed them to more infections by organisms not as likely to affect younger populations that we have better antibiotic coverage for. This was shown by having the highest likelihood enterococcal IE (p = 0.0406) along with their lower likelihood of S. aureus IE than those aged 18–37 years (p = 0.0305).

Most emboli located to the brain. The reason is likely two-fold. First, providers are more likely to take neurologic symptoms more seriously, from altered mental status to clas- sic stroke symptoms, and be more inclined to order brain imaging. This can possibly identify infarcts that may or may not explain the patient’s symptoms. Second, the arteries to the brain make up some of the first branches of the aorta, with their upward direction being more of a straight-shot than the lateral branches going to the upper extremities

Those with poor dentition did understandably have higher rates of VGS, although S. aureus was still the most common causative organism. This is likely due to poor dentition in our study being discovered by imaging rather than signs or symptoms, giving a bias toward dental abscesses which may be more associated with S. aureus.

First, the decrease in rheumatic heart disease and the increase in degenerative heart diseases have led to an increase in patients’ age and frequency of comorbidities [2, 3]. Second, the use of prosthetic valves among patients h as increased steadily [3]. More recently, it has been suggested that a growing proportion of cases of IE were hospital acquired [4] and/or healthcare related [5], especially cases involving Staphylococcus aureus [6]. Finally, injection drug use [7] and hemodialysis [6, 8] may also have contributed to changes in the presentation of IE.

In the subgroup of patients with community-acquired IE, results remained essentially similar to those observed in the whole population: S. aureus as the cause of IE (HR, 2.82 [95% CI, 1.72–4.61]; P 5 .0001), the development of cerebral com- plications (HR, 2.38 [95% CI, 1.45–3.93]; P 5 .0007), and a greater age (HR, 1.04 [95% CI, 1.02–1.06]; P 5 .0001) were the 3 most significant prognostic factors

These figures clearly illustrate the dra- matic change of paradigm in IE: within a few years, this dis- ease shifted from an infectious disease mostly of dental origin to mostly a healthcare-related infection, as previously high- lighted by other studies [16, 22–25]
