3 Executive Summary

4 Executive Summary The Switching Economy - Estimation of Value Potential Accenture s Switching Economy captures the changing nonstop customer dynamics in a new way, defining the revenue potential at play, driven by consumer switching. It estimates the overall potential expenditure shift resulting from customers that switched from one provider to another ( complete switch ) as well as those that will potentially do so as they have started to take portions of their spending to new providers ( partial switch ). The Switching Economy is estimated based on two data sources: o Accenture s analysis of data ranges from external sources on consumer spending ( forecasts) across utilities, communications, financial services, insurance, consumer goods retailing, consumer electronics and hotels & lodging in 33 countries*. o Switching data from Accenture s Global Consumer Pulse Research. Accenture estimates that the Switching Economy puts up to $5.9 trillion of revenue up for grabs for companies globally; with $1.3 trillion in the US. Switching Economy by Geographical Region (overall revenue potential estimates, US$ trillions) Global Asia (China & India) North America (US & Canada) Western Europe Rest of Asia & Pacific,1.0,0.8,1.7,1.4 **,5.9 The Switching Economy represents 10- of total annual disposable income in most mature markets against 20- in emerging ones. Close to 60% of the Switching Economy potential is driven by the US plus the BRIC countries. Shifts of consumer spending for goods accounts for the largest portion of the Switching Economy (up to 70% and more), especially in emerging markets where the services economy is still growing.

5 Executive Summary (cont.) The ninth annual Accenture Global Consumer Pulse Survey, which measured the experiences of 13,168 customers in 33 countries and across ten industries to gain insight into the changing dynamics of today s nonstop customers and assess consumer attitudes toward marketing, sales and customer service practices. The survey included 1,256 U.S. customers. Despite having more data and insights into consumer desires and preferences, companies in the U.S. have failed to meaningfully improve customer satisfaction or reverse rising switching rates among their customers. As a result, there is a potential $1.3 trillion of revenue at play in the U.S. market represented by the switching economy, according to Accenture s analysis of consumer spend forecasts and switching rates. 51 percent of U.S. consumers switched service providers in the past year due to poor customer service experiences, up five percent from. Switching rates were highest among retailers, cable and satellite providers and retail banks making companies in these sectors the most vulnerable, but also giving them potentially the most to gain. The survey found that customers are increasingly frustrated with the level of services they experience: 91 percent respondents are frustrated that they have to contact a company multiple times for the same reason; 90 percent by being put on hold for a long time and 89 percent by having to repeat their issue to multiple representatives. There are also frustrations with marketing and sales practices: 85 percent of customers are frustrated by dealing with a company that does not make it easy to do business with them, 84 percent by companies promising one thing, but delivering another; and 58 percent are frustrated with inconsistent experiences from channel to channel. While up in some categories, the survey revealed that customer satisfaction levels have generally remained stagnant across industry sectors and, overall, satisfaction fell by one percent since. Additionally, the rate of loyalty barely budged among U.S. customers, rising just one percent since, and customers willingness to recommend a company rose by just two percent.

6 Executive Summary (cont.) Against the high percentage of customers reporting they had switched providers in the last year, 81 percent said that the company could have done something differently to prevent them from switching. And while the survey showed that price still plays an important role in the choice of provider, the customer experience is equally important. 48 percent of U.S. customers use third-party online sources such as official review sites, and one-quarter (25 percent) use customer reviews and comments from social media sites, to find out information about a company s products and services. Word-of-mouth, including that shared via social media, continues to be the most important and impactful source of company information across industries according and is used by 71 percent of surveyed customers. In terms of the number of online channels used, 75 percent of respondents now use one or more online channels when researching companies products and services and 33 percent use mobile devices to access these online channels. The gap between the use of digital technologies and the ability of companies to use them to improve customer experiences is highlighted by the survey s findings that, among the 10 industries covered by the report, none made noticeable progress in providing customers with a tailored experience in. In the utilities industry, only 18 percent of customers agreed their provider offered them a tailored experience. And even in industries such as hotels and lodging and retail banking, perceived to be leading in creating more personalized interactions, only 36 percent of customers acknowledge receiving a tailored experience, respectively. Yet, while social media and online are regarded as important sources of information, one of the greatest frustrations customers have with companies is the perceived risk to privacy. Eighty-two percent of U.S. customers report that they feel companies they buy from cannot be trusted on how to use personal information they provided them. Copyright Accenture All rights reserved. 6

7 Executive Summary (cont.) The report found that companies that delivered valued customer experiences exhibited five common high impact capabilities, known as the customer-driven digital blueprint. These capabilities include: Hyper-relevance: Assure customers that the company is doing all that it can to understand them at a more personal level, including customizing their channel and interaction preferences. This means providing a more tailored customer experience with more customization and personalization through the use of predictive analytics. Relationships at Scale: Digital gives businesses rich channels through which to communicate with customers in much more personal ways and manage relationships with customers at scale. Use digital to bring the intimacy of the corner store to all customers and then give them more convenient access and more tailored services that matter to them. Seamless Experience: Creating a seamless experience requires a multi-channel approach. Integrate information and processes that enable customers to flow easily across different channels when and how they choose. Inherently Mobile: Invest in mobile services and support capabilities that are a quick win with customers, and that help to deliver hyper-relevance and reduce costs. Social Media: Harness social media in order to deliver up-to-the-second customer preferences, greater levels of trust, a mechanism for direct and dynamic interaction and more and more usable data upon which business decisions can be made.
