Can customer service be linked to all key interactions that a customer has with an organization? At what stage of the journey does the interaction happen? Is it just a one-step process? Or as research has proved does the customer have more than one key interaction before the final sales process is completed? Typically, the more valuable the service or product the more the interactions in the customer journey.

A customer journey map tells the story of the customer’s experience from initial contact through the various points of engagement to purchase and all the way beyond to keeping loyalty. What it always does is identify key interactions that the customer has with the organization. The customer journey map looks at the entire spectrum of engagement.

Typically timeline of a customer journey includes first engaging with a customer (through advertisement or in a store), purchase, using the product or service with the help of user manuals, sharing about the experience with others (in person or online) and then finishing the journey by upgrading, replacing or choosing a competitor( restarting the journey with another company). It talks about the user’s experience( sense of anticipation or frustration), motivations, and triggers at each of these touchpoints. It gives a clear picture as to what is the customer’s greater motivation, what do they wish to achieve, and what are their expectations of the organization.

The more touchpoints the more complicated the customer journey becomes but the map makes it clearer.

Customer Journey Map: When and Why

Customer Journey maps are generally created against a specific business goal. If the map does not align with reality it cannot achieve the desired business goal. The journey maps shift a company’s perspective from inside-out to outside-in. If an organization allows internal processes and systems to drive decisions that affect customer experience, a journey map could help turn by refocusing on the thoughts, actions, and emotions of customers.

The advent of digital technologies in gathering and analyzing massive amounts of data captured throughout the customer journey help in making informed decisions. The use of big data and improved data analytic capabilities help eCommerce business owners and service providers have better insights into the customer buying patterns and their journey path. In turn, companies are working on redefining the customer journey path to their advantage. Customer journeys are being proactively managed by digital marketers through algorithms and data science.

Effective Customer Journey Mapping Consists of Four Main Steps:

  1. Information Gathering: Key stakeholders and collaborators are engaged and information gathered from various customer interactions.
    • Gather existing data
    • Interview of stakeholders
  2. Analyze and Get insights: Analyze state of the journey from the information gathered and get all possible inferences including key highlights and problem areas in the customer journey.
    • Insights from analysis
    • Highlights and fallouts
  3. Customer Journey: Using insights gathered from the analysis, research new narratives to depict the customer journey.
    • Perform qualitative, primary research
    • Educate and engage stakeholders
  4. Prescriptive Projection: Creating the framework redefining the scope and goal using the reframed journey map.
    • Define the scope and goal
    • Model a draft framework

When a company takes up a project with a client they normally will have to sign an agreement with the client that neither party will disclose information that will be shared as part of the project to anybody else and that the information shared shall not be used for creating competing products/services by the company. This is a standard document that needs to be signed for most projects. This document is also referred to as Non Disclosure Agreement. We are publishing our Confidential Disclosure Agreement here. Feel free to copy and use for your needs. Business Solution Agreements CDA NCA nithin (not verified) access_time 20 Sep 2021 - 18:49 In the event of a dispute, what is the legal validity of such a document? webmaster access_time 20 Sep 2021 - 18:49 In reply to Legal validity by nithin (not verified) The validity would depend on how you register the contract. I think you can have a legally binding contract registered between two parties. There is an Indian Contracts Act that deals with such issues. You can please refer that or talk with a lawyer ;) Shailendra (not verified) access_time 20 Sep 2021 - 18:49 Hi, I would like to know whether this Agreement can be printed on a Company Letterhead to be legally enforceable or does it need to be done on a Stamp Paper only? If on a Stamp Paper, then of what value? Thank you, Regards, Shailendra Naveena (not verified) access_time 20 Sep 2021 - 18:49 In reply to What is the Substrate that should be used for this Agreement? by Shailendra (not verified) It has to be ideally on Rs. 50 stamp paper, or refer to the state stamp Act where it is executed. In case of other party being an International client, in such a case on letter head or original sheets. Anonymous (not verified) access_time 20 Sep 2021 - 18:49 Can a non compete agreement be voided if it only has the day and month on it, the year was not completey filled (200 )? It was signed by both parties, without dates by signatures. Thank tx
