Customer Experience Management For Your B2B Business

Customer experience management can help more than just B2C companies; B2B companies can benefit from it as well. The B2B world is bigger than most people know, with companies of all sorts providing products and services to other companies of all sorts.

B2B customers always have a choice whether they’ll do business with you after their first experience, so it’s important to know whether your customer service and their experience with your business is making them as happy as possible. Will they come back?

Customer experience management isn’t just about customer service; it involves understanding how customers interact with employees and all other aspects of your business — from operations and accounting to marketing and customer service — and managing those relationships to ensure smooth interactions and efficiency at every level.

Here are three ideas to help you improve your customer experience management:

Examine your employees.

You know the policies and procedures set forth for your employees better than anyone else. Watch and listen to what happens on the floor, in your call center, and in every aspect of your business to ensure that the customer service is keeping in line with your customer experience management efforts.

Examine your training again and again.

Create customer experience management training and test it in a real-world setting and see how it translates to actual customer experiences. Then modify your training and test it again. Modifying your training isn’t a sign you’ve failed; it shows you’re adaptable to changing needs.

Talk to your customers.

It’s important to listen to feedback on your company out in the field, but asking up front whether you’re doing living up to customers’ expectations can go a LONG way. Mobile and online surveys can be a great way to monitor your efforts.

One way to ensure good customer experience management in your B2B business is by hiring mystery shoppers to evaluate the inner workings of your company with an outside perspective.
