ENGINE believes you can use CX as an offensive weapon. When you proactively manage CX across your enterprise to impact business outcomes, you are driving toward superior performance. To create your system for sustainable organizational change, a structured step-by-step approach toward customer centricity is required. Your approach must consider your brand’s current CX maturity, which is the ability to proactively design, implement, manage, and continuously enhance your customers’ experience in ways that will impact business outcomes.
Our CX program evaluation, consulting and recommendations are based on ENGINE’s CX maturity model to ensure your CX program continues to progress toward a fully actualized customer centric business practice, including early “wins”.
We assess your organization’s performance on each of eight CX competencies. The strength of your organization’s performance on each of these competencies identifies your position on the path to centricity. As performance improves, your CX and ability to successfully meet corporate goals and objectives improves. Measuring against this framework allows you to advance your level of CX maturity, with the ultimate goal of reaching the level of CX Leaders.
