Go beyond KPIs with Customer Performance Indicators

Businesses must have a robust set of KPIs to gauge the fulfillment of critical company objectives. However, your performance indicators toolbox shouldn't end there.

It's important to take the time to maximize potential opportunities for the customer journey with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Marketing. This involves setting and measuring customer performance indicators that quantify outcomes such as cost savings, time savings, flexibility, convenience, and other valuable results for the customer.

Of course, that is in no way an exhaustive list of CPIs. The fact is that they differ extensively across organizations, industries, regions, and products, so make sure you choose the right one for your audiences.

Go Beyond KPIs with Customer Performance Indicators

There is a strong connection between KPIs and CPIs. For example, meeting the goal of a Customer Performance Indicator is likely to increase the associated KPIs. CPIs are robust growth predictors, but declining CPIs can drag down the related KPIs.

You may think that your company is ahead of the customer journey curve as you track customer-centric indicators such as customer satisfaction, effort, and net promoter scores.

However, it is vital to understand that these key performance indicators (KPIs) ultimately measure the benchmarks critical to your organization and not the customer. Therefore, we must go beyond KPIs and achieve more by integrating them with customer performance indicators.
