CMO Council and Live Technology have recently reported that what consumers want most from the post-purchase experience is stronger customer and technical support well after the by.
Excuse me, but I have a question
According to new research, most consumers are frustrated by poor technical assistance (51.4%), weak warranty and claims processing (37.7%), and inadequate repair and maintenance support (34.6%).
Further desired improvements fell into the categories of 24-hour accessibility and support, stronger user instruction, and better processes of product return.
And here’s what they do like
Conversely, here's what consumers value most post-purchase: a well designed product (46.6%), painless installation and setup (46.4%), and efficient delivery (46.2%).
Customers are least impressed when products are not supported by the retailer, will not accept returns, or have to deal with a voice system for customer support.
