The black sheep no more. B2B Customer Experience finding its place
The black sheep no more. B2B Customer Experience finding its placeArticle

For many years, CX and Customer Feedback has found a firm place within the B2C environment, with many B2B organisations eschewing formalised feedback programmes. For the most part, the reason for the lower uptake within B2B industries was that there was a long-held assumption that retention and customer relationships happened organically thanks to account management and the like. In recent years, however, it has become clear, that particularly in large, complex B2B organisations, there is a definite need to formalise the understanding of customer feedback. The adoption of both structured customer departments, CX strategy and indeed, technology-driven mechanisms to gather feedback from customers is ever increasing.
