  1. Generally informative re. transactions and service, but didn’t provide much targeted, prioritized detail (apart from first call resolution) on what Sprint is doing/has done to drive more positive, and profitable, customer behavior, even when asked. Customer perception was introduced, but not amplified. Rational and relationship customer experience, and especially branded customer experience, is critical to strategic differentiation in most markets; and this interview focused on the operational ‘table stakes’ of customer satisfaction and dissatisfaction, and churn reduction. Didn’t get that Sprint is endeavoring to be world-class in customer experience, just being better than competitors.

  2. I feel that the goal of customer experience management is to move customers from satisfied to loyal and then from loyal to advocate. It is a process that mostly all businesses are trying to achieve. Sprint has kind of fallen off the map compared to Verizon in my opinion. It seems that Jerry Adriano is on the right track to bring Sprint back up to a level where they can compete is this ever changing technological world. As a customer, I have had good experience with Verizon, but I’ve been hearing a lot more people choosing to stick with Sprint because of their customer service. Customer loyalty is key to success! Thanks for the podcast.

  3. As a new transaction and service information are not effectively targeted to provide is being done to promote a more positive, such as the priority details, profitability, customer behavior, even in the face of a reporter’s question.In fact, customer perception, reason and the relationship between customer experience, in particular the Branded Customer Experience is the key in the majority of market differentiation strategy; this interview business chips “Focus on customer satisfaction and dissatisfaction, but the results have not been expectedefforts.
