Customer Experience at arm's length. It's all about your intermediariesArticle

Today's interconnected and interdependent business world means that many organisations operate within complex value chains, and often these value chains include intermediaries (such as brokers, dealers, agents etc.) through which the organisation expands market reach. The result is that the organisation who owns the brand, product and service is removed from the end-customer and needs to rely heavily on the intermediary to deliver customer experience.
