Customer Communications Drives More than 20 Percent of Overall Consumer Trust According to Pitney Bowes Business Insight Survey

<p>LAS VEGAS, June 06, 2011 - Insights 2011 User Conference-- Pitney Bowes Business Insight, a global leader in customer data, analytics and communication software and services, today released a research study on The Role of Trust in Consumer Relationships. Conducted by the ECSP Europe Business School, the study illustrates that communications from a service provider is one of the leading influencers of trust. Customer communications drives more than 20 percent of overall trust of the company, impacting length of customer relationships, business profitability and customer advocacy or word-of-mouth experience.</p> <p>Long-lasting customer relationships are critical to business success, and trust is a driving factor. Digital technologies and social media enable companies to reach their customers directly in an environment where those customers also exchange opinions about products, services, and brands. According to the study, customer satisfaction with interactive channels is often determined by trust in self-service channels (10-20 percent) and by communications from the provider (15-20 percent). Customer trust is also influenced by a service provider’s management policies and practices, and by a customer’s previous experience. Overall, the study finds that trust can drive up to 44 percent of customer loyalty in a brand.</p> <p>“Trusted brands build upon each interaction to enable lifetime customer relationships,” said David Newberry, Chief Marketing Officer of Pitney Bowes Business Insight. “Every customer interaction – in person, on a Web site, with direct mail, or with a call center – is an opportunity to build or break trust. This study validates how crucial customer communications management programs are for positively managing customer interactions and, therefore, for also improving the value and profitability of every customer relationship.”</p>
