Qualtrics and Kantar Extend Their Customer Experience Partnership to Include Employee Experience OfferingLast updated: September 19, 2018
SALT LAKE CITY and SEATTLE, Sept. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Qualtrics, the leader in experience management, today announced an expansion of its strategic partnership with Kantar. Previously focused primarily on customer experience, the partnership will now extend to provide deep employee experience insights, actionable intelligence, and world-class expertise by combining Qualtrics’ Employee Experience (EX) solution with the consulting expertise of Kantar TNS’ consulting service and expertise.
The Qualtrics XM Platform helps organizations manage the four core experiences of business: customer, employee, product, and brand experience. By extending the partnership, the two companies will help accelerate the ability of organizations to manage the full experience lifecycle. In today’s experience economy, that has never been more important.
“There is a massive gap between the experiences employers offer today and the experiences a new generation of employees expect,” said John Torrey, Chief Corporate Development Officer at Qualtrics. “Organizations must improve the experiences for employees and customers across the entire lifecycle to gain a deep understanding of the experiences people want.”
The partnership aims to close experience gaps for organizations at a time when employee and customer expectations are rapidly reshaping the way businesses approach experience management. Kantar will leverage its best-in-class consulting expertise as it introduces Qualtrics’ technology to its employee experience customers, while extending their powerful combination of technology and expertise to the broader customer and employee experience markets.
