How does your Customer Experience measure up?


Our Customer Story

CX in AutomotiveWhen it comes to driving CX, decisions based on real-time VOC makes a real difference.

As a leading automotive brand, our client knows that loyalty to a vehicle brand requires an emotional connection. In the highly competitive automotive industry, how customers feel about a particular brand can often outweigh more logical considerations when making a purchase, and our customer sought to grow this emotional connection through great customer experience.

Through a partnership with Smoke Customer Intelligence, the automotive brand was able to identify the causes of dissatisfaction and implement changes in a way that directly improved customer satisfaction. This, in turn, has helped them achieve sales numbers within the top 5 of all brands nationwide.

Automotive experienceQuality in the auto industry is better than ever. The lowest rated vehicles today have fewer problems than the best ones from just a decade ago.  Surprisingly, this improvement hasn't resulted in an equitable increase in customer retention.

It’s becoming obvious that vehicle improvements don't create the increase in loyalty and growth that is required. That means any automotive brand wanting to secure a competitive advantage needs to focus efforts where there is ample opportunity to win customers and focus on CX.
