Macy’s: Why Your Database Decision Directly Impacts Customer Experience

Duration: 1 hour

According to a recent Harvard Business Review study, there’s only a 43% chance that customers who have a poor experience will stick with you for the next 12 months. Contrast that to the 74% that will remain your customer if they have a great experience.

Today’s customers won’t give you a second chance when it comes to digital customer experiences, so you have to get it right the first time. If you fail to deliver on their expectations, they will leave and not come back.
