Experience Management

Operational data (O) - like costs, revenues, and sales - show what is happening in your business. But, you also need experience data (X) to understand the feelings of the people involved and why things are happening. Experience Management solutions combine X-data and O-data. By collecting experience data at every meaningful touch point, you can analyze and understand experience gaps and determine what to do about them.

Experience Management is powered by Qualtrics. For more information about Qualtrics, see https://www.qualtrics.com/.
