Customer Portfolios conducted the five-week customer experience audit to interact with these retail brands and evaluate customer experience quality by quantitatively measuring:

  • Web Site: Email Sign-Up, Web Personalization, Digital Ads
  • Email: Email Volume, Email Campaigns
  • Off-Site: Retargeting/Abandoned Cart, Purchase Process, Returning Purchase to Store
  • Touchpoint Tactics: Account Sign-up, Consistent Messaging, Loyalty, Other Touchpoints

“A good experience from a business perspective is very different than a good experience from a customer perspective,” said Nick Godfrey, co-founder and EVP Strategy of Customer Portfolios. “For instance, we found that all brands scored their highest in consistent messaging across platforms, but brands averaged only 2 out of a possible 5 in Personalization. Weaknesses became apparent quickly — as did possible solutions.”

Other key findings included:

  • Web personalization was a weak point for all brands, with either very little or no discernable personalization on the websites.
  • Cross-channel shopping was easy, but ‘knowing’ the customer didn’t keep pace.
  • Omnichannel was lacking as only one brand offered a mobile application and used DM to engage the customer.
  • Email effectiveness was undermined as most of the brands sent too few or too many emails in a 30-day period.
