Validate Your Redefined Customer Journeys Quickly


As COVID-19 exacerbates the need for new customer journeys, real-world testing can identify sources of customer friction.

In recent years, there has been a push for organizations to implement new kinds of customer journeys, such as curbside pickup and delivery. COVID-19 has accelerated that push, and it’s now becoming clear that many businesses need to rethink their customer journeys to account for contactless services and ensure customer safety.

Defining and understanding new customer journeys is seen as a major undertaking, and even in the best circumstances, it’s easy for elements of the journey to not work as intended. When you have to roll out customer journeys quickly — and in a pandemic that brings new challenges and concerns — the chances of customer friction increase.

Join our guest speaker, Forrester Senior Analyst Kelly Price, and Applause Principal Solutions Engineer Carlton Retland as they outline the key steps to implementing a new customer journey quickly, and how Applause can help validate customer journeys and identify multiple points of friction.
