How do you explain Operations Experience Management to a colleague

Operations Experience Management might be a new term, but there’s nothing new about what it refers to. In a nutshell, Operations Experience is everything that happens after a customer checks out of an online shop. Think purchase confirmations, dispatch notices and delivery success emails. But unsurprisingly, there is a bit more to it than that. So, with this in mind – how can you explain Operations Experience Management to a colleague, or someone that hasn’t heard of it before? And importantly, how can you get their buy-in?   

What is Operations Experience Management? 

There are countless operational processes throughout each customer journey; occurring in warehouses, on delivery trucks, during repairs and returns, under warranty and more. During these processes, customer experience is rarely well managed. That’s largely because the amount of complex data that needs to be gathered, analyzed, cleaned and harmonized to deliver relevant, real-time value is too overwhelming. But the reality is that leveraging data is key to outperforming competition and impressing customers. Operations Experience Management is the combination of operational processes with customer experience, further enhanced by personalization
