ForeSee Shares Initial Key Findings in Report Highlighting Customer Experience Among Top Retailers During the Holidays
ForeSee today announced the initial findings of the ForeSee Experience Index 2015 (FXI). The index, which is based on more than 20,000 consumer surveys gathered for the top 50 U.S. and 25 U.K. retailers, addresses the retail customer experience across web, mobile, and in-store over the course of the shopping season. The FXI has been the definitive study on the current state of retail customers for more than a decade. Using ForeSee’s proven methodology to measure customer satisfaction, the FXI gives deep insights into consumer trends and behavior habits. This year’s FXI has added new questions to the survey to better capture trends emerging by current events, including whether or not retailers should be open on Thanksgiving Day and whether or not consumers would use drone delivery for packages if it was an available service.
Two new products are expanding the ForeSee VOC Platform: ForeSee Feedback and Sentiment Analytics. They accelerate increased insight into the customer experience by offering marketing and analytical leaders more autonomy and control in gathering and understanding their VOC data.
Feedback brings real-time insights stemming from customer reactions after experiencing a brand’s web, mobile or tablet site, and ForeSee Sentiment Analytics allows brands to deeply understand and act upon the intensity of the customer experience based on the analysis of open-ended comments in the context of a predictive and prioritized framework.
