Challenges with Performance Management
Most brands have more than a dozen software tools that all generate data and reports independently. Managers have massive amounts of data available to them. With deep analytics and custom dashboards, they can tailor reports to track their KPI effectively.
However, nothing takes place in a silo vacuum. What is not so easily seen is the interrelationships of key performance metrics across multiple silos.
In the area of brand management, traditional customer experience management focuses on customer surveys. They use NLP to derive key words and identify insights from feedback . But customer surveys are just one measure of the brand experience. There are what employees are saying, there is marketing engagement data and feedback from sales data.
There is a critical need for integrating data across various platforms and breaking down silos to what performance metrics are most impacting brand loyalty, sales and profits.
Here's what's stoping them:
The Bad News About Performance Management
Inaccessible Data Across Organization: About 30% of organizations report that silos of customer data remain inaccessible across the entire organization, hindering a unified view of customer interactions across touchpoints.
Fragmented Customer Data: When customer data is fragmented across multiple systems, it complicates service delivery and management, affecting the overall customer experience and operational efficiency.
Reduced Collaboration and Transparency: Data silos significantly reduce collaboration and transparency within teams, creating barriers and decreasing productivity across departments.
Increased Operational Costs: The lack of data integration and poor collaboration caused by data silos can lead to increased costs due to inefficiencies and duplicated efforts.
Inconsistent Data: Data silos contribute to inconsistent data across the business, making it difficult for managers to rely on the data for accurate decision-making and performance tracking.
Poor Brand Experience Management: Traditional customer experience management methods like customer surveys provide limited insights, failing to capture the comprehensive brand experience reflected in employee feedback, marketing engagement data, and sales feedback due to data silos.
