Beyond Philosophy, which assists companies in improving customer experience, announced today that Apple delivers the "most admired customer experience" in the marketplace, besting Amazon.com, Zappos, Starbucks, and Disney, respectively, in the top 5.
"Apple has married all the elements of its experience and connected with its customers in a deeply emotional, irrational way," Steven Walden, senior head of research and consulting at Beyond Philosophy, said in a statement.

Apple's win in Beyond Philosophy's study was not determined by customers. Instead, Beyond Philosophy conducted 53 in-depth interviews with customer experience executives and experts. In addition, Beyond Philosophy's findings are bolstered by research it conducted on 8,000 customer experience executives and over 2,100 "customer-experience-active" companies in 239 countries and regions around the world.
