TM Forum’s Customer Experience Management (CEM) Program enables service providers and global enterprises to develop a complete customer management strategy which improves brand loyalty, revenue growth, and churn and cost reduction across their full range of products and services.
TM Forum has developed a set of tools and best practices including a maturity model, lifecycle model and over 450 metrics that guide members to improve customer experience and achieve their customer-oriented goals. The tools are well thought out and designed to give any service provider a common language and concrete assistance in developing their CEM programs.
In addition to the best practices, we provide opportunities for collaboration, in-depth research on CEM trends, in-person and online training, webinars, live events and more, all to help you improve customer satisfaction in your organization.

Context and personalization are ever more important factors in improving experience, and promise a rosy future. But all is not rosy just yet. While customers are adapting quickly to a broad variety of digital and physical interaction channels, they are sometimes struggling to find consistency and personalization across them.
Customers interact with service providers in a multitude of ways and across a variety of channels – many that are managed by the service provider and some that are not. This report examines some of the factors affecting CEM and emphasizes the value and importance of measuring both customer experience and the efforts underway to improve it.
It’s now widely understood that providing good customer experience isn’t only the job of those who work in customer-facing roles, but needs to be at the heart of everything a service provider does. It has to be built into products, services and processes, but having a 360-degree view of what’s really going on is extremely difficult to obtain.
Big data remains a hugely important topic across virtually all industries. Business leaders are bombarded with publicity about the crucial role of importance of big data, and are very optimistic about the possibilities buried in the zettabytes of data stored today.
