Improving customer experience to stay on top

BMW has a long record of success as “The Ultimate driving machine.” But even they recognize that we’re in a paradigm shift when just having a great product isn’t enough to stay on top. “…everybody sees that the customer experience landscape is the battleground for customer loyalty,” says today’s guest, Jacqueline Jasionowski. And she has played a huge role in helping BMW differentiate their brand by improving customer experience.

Focused more on sales that customer experience, the car-buying experience is typically very stressful,  and time-consuming! By focusing on the customer experience and weaving it into their culture and training, BMW has climbed the ranks as customer-focused automakers. They have brought relationship-building experience strategies down to the store level, and that’s where where it makes the most impact.

With Jacqueline’s help, BMW has broken the car-buying experience mold. That idea comes with great risks for any industry, but BMW has already taken a great deal of these risks for the sake of creating a more customer-centric experience. Today, Jacqueline shares great tips and insights for what has worked and what hasn’t, so you can break your own industry’s experience mold with less risk.

Whether you’re a high-end brand, a budget brand, or something in between… Improving customer experience on an ongoing basis is critical to surviving this paradigm shift. Listen in to hear how BMW is rocking it and how you can apply that to your business!
