Customer data and analytics have become an imperative part of customer experience. With constantly rising customer expectations and an increasing demand for a quicker service and highly personalised interactions across multiple touch points, the only way you can achieve all this to ensure you’re providing an excellent CX is by truly knowing your customers.

Furthermore, 29 per cent of CX practitioners cite Data and Analytics as one of the top 3 trends currently impacting the industry – showing the big focus on Data and Analytics within CX today.

But while many have a focus in this area to cater to the entitled customer and stay ahead of disruptors, how do you stay on top of the industry changes? And how do you manoeuvre the complex solution provider landscape? Join CX Network Live: Data and Analytics, an online event showcasing the challenges and opportunities within customer data analytics and providing expert insights and solutions from Philips, Sainsbury’s, TCF Bank and more to navigate these unchartered territories.
