Customer Journey Mapping Research Report 2019

Back in May, we reached out to our users asking them to participate in the survey where we investigated software and techniques used when working with customer journey mapping.

Our request was successful: 150 customer experience professionals filled in the questionnaire; we conducted 14 in-depth interviews.

It took our researchers a while to compile survey results into a report. Today, we are going to share its takeaways with you.

Customer Journey Map as a Living Document

For product teams, a customer journey map has more value when it becomes a “living document” that is constantly updated. But keeping a map up to date manually requires a lot of resources.

For instance, analysts in data-driven companies often perform complex calculations prior to presenting any results to stakeholders and rarely use raw data from analytics tools.living-document
