Measuring Success in Customer Experience
Used to dealing with companies that distinguish themselves through superior customer engagement, today’s public has come to expect a level of customer experience to which most agencies haven’t been able to live up. However, the Obama administration’s prioritization of customer experience puts federal agencies in the challenging position of pushing to provide a first-class customer experience while meeting their unique missions. With the right combination of customer-focused strategy, technology, and talent, federal agencies have a chance to significantly raise the bar for the government’s customer service.
- Best practices from successful federal CX use cases

How Data is Driving Customer Experience Strategy
If data isn’t part of your customer experience strategy, you’re doing it wrong. The most promising customer experience efforts in government tend to be driven and backed by data. Technology should be viewed as a key component – but not a solution on its own – to any customer experience initiative; whether it is collecting data to better understand customers or providing features and services they expect in today’s modern, digital world. This panel will discuss the role data plays in customer experience strategy and how technology is shaping the government’s relationship with its millions of customers.
