“Our 2018 study clearly shows three main trends. First, that customer experience has become universal – all sectors are now competing against each other and consumers now compare their experiences against the best in the country rather than the best in the sector. It also demonstrates that the human side of the relationship is key to delivering a lasting and superior customer experience. The third trend is the movement of customer-centricity into the back office; the entire enterprise needs to be working towards excellence in customer journeys in order for the experience to be excellent. The good news is that customer experience leaders in France understand these trends and have been working to improve their performance day by day in a continuous way."
