Using our recently updated Web Site Review methodology, Forrester evaluated the Web site customer experience of 12 major Japanese firms — four each in the automotive, banking, and consumer electronics industries. As a group, banks outperformed other industries, while automotive sites lagged. However, no site received a passing grade. To create valuable sites for their online customers, Japanese companies should build sites that focus on target users and their goals, adopt best practices from outside their industries, and prove the value of site enhancements.
