"The Outside In Awards recognize organizations that don't just talk about customer experience, but take a disciplined approach to improving it," said Harley Manning, co-author of Outside In and Forrester vice president and research director. "Their efforts stand out from among those of their peers by being systematic and by demonstrating results for both their business and their customers. Our research shows that when organizations do take a disciplined approach, as our winners have, they can expect business benefits ranging from more revenue from increasingly loyal customers, to more and better word of mouth from happier customers."


"We are on a journey of improving our customer experience with every touch point," said Gael Lundeen, Vice President, Customer Experience for Pitney Bowes. "Measurement is a cornerstone of all of our programs and we are deeply honored that Forrester has selected us for this award."

Winners of the Forrester Outside In Awards were selected across a range of categories representing the strategic disciplines that Forrester advises organizations to master in order to achieve the full business potential of customer experience. These disciplines include: Strategy, Customer Understanding, Design, Measurement, Governance, and Customer-Centric Culture. Forrester used five criteria to judge the winning entries: clarity of approach, business value to the organization, positive impact on customer experience, innovation, and potential for other companies to repeat the practice.
