“Remaining competitive in 2020 requires more than siloed, touchpoint-specific actions; real-time capabilities across touchpoints is what is increasing agility and turns a clear vision on customer journeys into a competitive advantage”

Last year demonstrated the importance of the customer experience (CX) for every business. According to Gartner’s recent Market Guide for Customer Journey Analytics, customer journey mapping and automation was ranked second among brands’ CX priorities in 2020, and this trend is expected to continue as more businesses adopt customer-first strategies in 2021.

All enterprises have room to grow when it comes to CX; in fact, only 20% of US brands earned a “good” or higher CX ranking in Forrester’s 2020 CX Index. While they are few and far in between, these more innovative, mature enterprises have set the bar when it comes to delivering quality customer experience, which has enabled them to grow market share and overtake competitors.

This is because these brands have made CX a top priority across the organization, and they have the necessary resources to invest in customer journey management. Interestingly, Gartner’s research indicates that the divide between mature and immature organizations widened during the pandemic, with less mature organizations deprioritizing customer journey management and more mature organizations increasing their focus on CX technology in 2020. In order to compete, less mature organizations will need to rethink their CX strategies and start embracing new technologies.

“Remaining competitive in 2020 requires more than siloed, touchpoint-specific actions; real-time capabilities across touchpoints is what is increasing agility and turns a clear vision on customer journeys into a competitive advantage,” said Gartner analysts David Norrie, Melissa Davis, Don Scheibenreif, Jessica Ekholm, and Varun Agarwal in the report.
