Customer Experience: A Critical Factor for Achieving Success

Lutz, FL—May 25, 2016 – Xplor International, the worldwide electronic document systems association, today announced that it will once again host a breakfast panel during the Graph Expo event, September 25 – September 28, 2016 at Orlando Convention Center.

The breakfast keynote session, moderated by Matt Swain of InfoTrends is titled “Customer Experience: A Critical Factor for Achieving Success” and will focus on the importance of the customer experience, as well as understanding customer expectations, with end user panelists sharing their insights in their efforts to create the perfect customer experience.

The concept of providing a superior customer experience has emerged as a critical success factor for companies. It is about meeting, and ideally exceeding, the expectations of your customer. The fact is that price/cost leadership is no longer sustainable for customer retention, shifting the focus of companies to delivering superior customer experiences. Along with developing various integration and automation tools to organize customer information better, how can companies drive customer perception, satisfaction, and customer loyalty?  With advancements in technology and changes in human behavior, is offering a superior customer experience a moving target?

This sponsored breakfast session is presented at no charge, thanks to our sponsors Compart North America and Xerox Corporation. Space will be limited to the first 200 people who register. Additional sponsorship opportunities remain open for the event. For more information on becoming a sponsor, please contact Deborah Green, Director of Sales, at +1-770-444-3845 or deborahgreen@xplor.org.
