Why Read This Report

Forrester asked more than 4,600 US consumers about their interactions with a variety of companies, scoring those experiences in three areas: meets needs, easy to work with, and enjoyability. Based on these consumer responses, we calculated Forrester's third annual Customer Experience Index (CxPi) — ranking 133 firms in 14 different industries. In this document, we examined the six PC manufacturers on the list. For the second year in a row, Apple took the top spot, and Dell came out on the bottom. But that's not the whole story. Apple actually declined the most since 2008, while Hewlett-Packard and Dell made solid gains. Since a modest improvement in customer experience can generate hundreds of millions of dollars in incremental revenue, PC manufacturers should accelerate their journey to Experience-Based Differentiation (EBD) in 2010.
