Qualtrics, the leader and creator of the experience management (XM) category, is launching Digital Experience Metrics (DX Metrics), a simple, science-backed framework designed to measure how a customer’s digital experience across an organization’s website, mobile apps, digital marketing, and social channels impacts how much they spend.

“Creating great experiences, even in traditionally impersonal digital channels, is a critical differentiator for every business today”
As customers increasingly interact with companies through digital channels, businesses need a new approach to building deeper customer relationships by measuring how each customer feels about their digital experience and understanding where to take action. While online channels are inherently transactional, customers are more likely to come back when the experience is effortless and evokes a positive emotion.
DX Metrics, built into Qualtrics CustomerXM, includes a set of scientifically validated questions that measure three key aspects of any digital experience: emotion (measured by customer satisfaction), effort (measured by how easy or difficult was it to complete a task) and success (measured by task completion). New Qualtrics research, embedded and available within the DX Metrics, shows that increasing a customer’s satisfaction score can increase their spending by up to 37%. Reducing the effort required to complete a task online can lead to a 23% increase in their spending.

This validated approach to measuring the three core aspects of the digital experience helps companies benchmark and compare their metrics against similar organizations in their industry, giving brands better visibility into their performance and opportunities to increase revenue. It also includes dashboard templates and recommendations to help marketing and product leaders understand how certain factors, such as the account creation process or web checkout user experience improvements, impact customer sentiment the most, and which actions they can take to improve each factor.
“Creating great experiences, even in traditionally impersonal digital channels, is a critical differentiator for every business today,” said Brad Anderson, president of products and services at Qualtrics. “Digital Experience Metrics connect customer sentiment to financial impact, helping organizations understand how investing in better digital experiences based on individual feedback can impact their bottom line.”
According to Qualtrics research, the industries with the most room for improvement include automotive, healthcare and hospitality. The table above outlines the average expected revenue lost from digital channels, sorted by industry, that could be recovered by improving the digital experience with things like better UX and personalized content and customer journeys.
Creating personalized experiences based on digital insights
The data gathered in DX Metrics flows into Qualtrics Experience ID, a single, unified view of the preferences people are sharing with a brand. Experience ID organizes these insights into unique individual profiles that provide a 360-degree view of each customer’s expectations and interactions with a company, allowing brands to deliver personalized experiences over time, at scale.
