Retail & Consumer Market Insights

PwC is proud to support Customer Experience & Insight (CXI) research group at Swinburne University. The CXI ExChange Omnibus is a quarterly study of consumer experience and behaviour, based on an online survey of 500 Australian shoppers. We present some of the key findings.
