09:10 AM FIRESIDE CHAT: Digital Transformation From A Data Driven Customer Experience Perspective

Managing the customer experience means becoming aware and responsive to the many different ways people browse & shop - and to prioritise, plan and direct activity so that the service provided to customers is attractive.

It’s easy to get caught in isolated technical details like product ratings and decreasing wait times, but the art of improving customer experience is in consciously guiding all those tiny moments to come together as something greater than the sum of its parts.

Retailers and brands who choose to take on this challenge will see true, sustainable differentiation from their competitors.

This talk explores how Tesco is using service design and customer experience management to serve its customers a little better every day.
