Bridging the gap between customer experience management and mobile shopping

Abstract


Purpose – The purpose of this research is to study three clues (employee reputation, site design, and security) of the Customer Experience Management framework that can prompt mobile shopper satisfaction and repurchase intention. The moderator role of perceived distance of the retailer is explored.

 

Design/methodology/approach – The Partial Least Squares approach was employed to analyze information gathered from 1053 mobile shoppers in a geographically extensive and emerging market (Mexico).

 

Findings – The Customer Experience Management framework is helpful in explaining m-shopper satisfaction and intention to repurchase via mobile phone. Our findings show that reputation (particularly for consumers who perceive that retailers are near), site design (principally for consumers who perceive that retailers are far away), and security enhance mobile-shopper satisfaction. Satisfactory experiences increase repurchase intention, regardless of perceived distance of alternative retailers.

 

Originality/value – This study contributes to understanding which factors mobile vendors (m-vendors) could manage in different ways to engender satisfaction and intention to repurchase via mobile, from the unexplored Customer Experience Management perspective and in a scarcely studied emerging market. Also, a key facet of this study is related to the moderating influence of perceived distance on the relationship between employee reputation, site design, and security, on one hand, and m-shopper satisfaction on the other.
