Customer Journey Management  Software

Customer journey management (CJM) software shows each unique path consumersake with your company and catalogs their sentiment at each touchpoint throughout the journey. By implementing CJM, you’ll gain context and a better understanding of the customer experience when making decisions.

What is the customer journey?

The customer journey is a series of interactions that a customer has with a brand for any particular task or decision. The customer is the one who decides which actions to take at each step in the process, but the business has the opportunity to guide customers’ decisions and behaviors toward a desired outcome. The customer journey is sometimes confused with the buyer’s journey—but the two are distinct. While a buyer’s journey traces a person’s progress from before to after a purchase,he customer journey focuses on each touchpoint a person has with a company along the way. 

The customer journey is also often connected to the marketing funnel, but it isn’t the same thing. The marketing funnel is a straight-down sales process model, usually from the company’s point of view.

How does the customer journey progress?

The journey a customer may take—from first learning about your company to finally making a purchase or subscribing—is usually a circuitous one.

Customers may take several varied steps (that often loop back on each other) between awareness/discovery and purchase. Someone may view social media ads, place an item in the shopping cart, browse other companies’ websites, abandon the cart, complete the purchase a few days later, call to check on delivery status and then return the item when it doesn’t fit.

Another way to look at a customer journey is as a story. It shows how customers interact with your company, from when they first learn about it to their first purchase to usage and retention.
