Can I Get Some CX With That Big Mac?

McDonald’s recently announced the appointment of its first VP Customer Officer, Fred Ehle. I applaud McDonald’s for the move. In Temkin Group report, ROI of Customer Experience, 2014, we found that a modest improvement in customer experience can generate an average of $437.5 million over three years for every $1 billion in annual revenues for a fast food chain.

Mr. Ehle has some work to do. The 2014 Temkin Experience Ratings of fast food chains shows that  McDonald’s is tied for 16th spot out of 19 QSRs.

To drive customer experience improvements across an organization as large as McDonald’s, Mr Ehle will need to focus on all four customer experience core competencies: Purposeful Leadership, Employee Engagement, Compelling Brand Values, and Customer Connectedness.

The bottom line: Good luck to Mr. Ehle and McDonald’s on their CX journey.

 

Report: Case Studies in Text Analytics

1405_TextAnalyticsCaseStudies_COVERWe just published a Temkin Group report, Case Studies in Text Analytics. The research provides rich details about how five leading companies—American Express, ADP, Firstsource, Safelite AutoGlass, and Verizon—are using text analytics. Here’s the executive summary:

To help organizations understand how to use text analytics to transform their VoC programs, we have compiled five case studies from companies that have successfully utilized this capability. This report offers insights into their efforts, describing how Safelite drives value with a small team, how Firstsource ventures beyond service quality and training, how American Express built a custom solution in-house, how ADP scaled with a distributed model, and how Verizon scaled with a centralized model. Each of these case studies follows a company’s journey as it built out its text analytics capabilities and also shows how each one organized its efforts. In addition to the case studies, we also outline five key decisions that every text analytics program must make.

Off Topic: Ford Has The Most NFL Fans

In one of our recent benchmark studies, we asked consumers what professional sports, if any, they like to watch on TV. Since we’re at the beginning of the NFL season, I decided to take a look at the make-up of NFL fans. Yes, I have data on demographics such as age, income, education, etc. But I’ll share some of that later in the season.

For now, I decided to look at which companies have customers who are the most and the least interested in the NFL. The companies that have the highest percentage of NFL fans are Ford, TD Ameritrade, MSN, Lexus, Chrysler, Charles Schwab, and Dodge. It’s no surprise that many of these firms pay for commercial time during the football games.

Which organizations would reach the lowest percentage of their customers with NFL TV ads? Optimum, Ross, Dollar Tree, Medicaid, and ShopRite.

1409_NFLbyCompany2The bottom line: Since this is an off-topic post, I’ll show my bias: Go Patriots!
