Interacting with and motivating the frontline employees (call center and field technicians). Additionally, the CCO has a feedback system in place to understand issues facing these employees with the goal of solving problems that make the employees unhappy and thus improving productivity.
Another priority is to develop and centralize a customer profile to give a 360-degree view of the businesses customers. The goal is to understand the customer journey and measure satisfaction levels across all touchpoints.
A CCO aims to "bring the customer to life" by helping the others in C-level positions to really know their customer's needs and who they are in great detail.
CCO's should be looking to include customers in the creation/development process by allowing them to test new ideas and receive feedback.
An additional priorty of a CCO is to define and implement customer experience measurement and reporting standards. These standards offer valuable gimpses into what customers want from the business and show how the business can make the client's happy.
