As 2018 quickly approaches, it’s time for organizations to give serious thought to how they will address the customer experience in the coming year.

Increasingly, marketers are taking a data-driven approach to CX that allows them to deliver highly-personalized, immersive experiences that make customers feel special and want to return to their brand again and again. As a result, we anticipate that 2018 will bring the highest expectations for a valuable and memorable experience from customers yet, as well as the highest risk of losing these customers to the competitors who can beat you to it.
