Why Understanding Data is Important for Customer Experience

By understanding the concept of customer journey mapping as a visual representation of the end-to-end customer experience, organisations can gain valuable insights into their customers’ needs, expectations, and pain points.

A customer journey map illustrates the various stages, touchpoints, and interactions a customer goes through while engaging with your brand. This visual representation provides context and helps businesses identify critical moments in the customer journey, enabling them to make targeted improvements and deliver a more personalised and seamless experience.

By mapping the customer journey, organisations can develop a deeper understanding of their customers. They can uncover the path customers take, the touchpoints they encounter, and the interactions they have with the brand. This understanding allows businesses to identify pain points and areas for improvement, ultimately leading to a better customer experience.

Key Components of a Customer Journey Map

A customer journey map is a valuable tool for understanding and improving the customer experience. It consists of several key components that work together to provide a holistic view of the customer's interactions with a brand.

Best Practices for Customer Journey Mapping

To create effective customer journey map, it is essential to follow best practices that ensure accuracy, collaboration, and ongoing relevance. Here are some tips to consider:

Create a comprehensive customer experience data diagnosis by engaging cross-functional teams and stakeholders, gathering qualitative data through customer research, and validating with real users. Regularly update and refine the journey map to reflect changing customer expectations. Integrate the insights into business decision-making, aligning marketing, product development, and customer service initiatives with the customer journey. This user-centric approach ensures accurate mapping and creates customer-centric experiences that exceed expectations.

Our Five Step Data Diagnostic Approach

Define the Problem & End-Goal

Before we start our data analysis, we need to understand the challenges you are facing and the outcome that you want to achieve through the CX transformation. This could be as simple as reducing call handle time, but having a clear understanding of the problems you're having will allow us to refine our data analysis.

Data Request

We request a tailored set of data, to support our analysis, that should be transferred to us and stored securely using your specific protocols that will meet our ISO27001 management system, in line with your specific needs and requirements.

Process Data

Once the data is received, we establish volume of records, check each field within the data set to identify anything erroneous. Does the data received help support what we are looking to solve (step 1). This may result in either re defining the problem statement or additional data being requested.

Data Analysis

Our data analysts dive into the data applying extensive industry specific knowledge and layering the different data sets to identify possible root causes.


The outputs of the analysis are presented in an accessible, easily digestible interactive format and the areas driving highest customer effort and pain are called out. This is played back to the CX service design team ahead of final agreement of the focus of the onsite activity to add an additional lens and deeper understanding to the findings and contribute to possible causes. Any additional areas of further analysis are also identified ahead of customer playback.
