Abstract

Providing superior customer experiences has become a strategic priority for companies. However, companies and researchers lack a measure that quantifies customer experience (CX) as a multi-dimensional construct in today’s omni-channel environment, predicts crucial outcomes (e.g., customer satisfaction and loyalty), and measures CX in an accurate but efficient way (e.g., in mobile surveys). This has led to persistent difficulties for companies to manage customer interactions. To address these drawbacks, this paper provides two reliable and valid CX scales: a textbased and a pictorial scale. While research can apply the text-based scale, the pictorial scale especially enables companies to track CX efficiently.
