Customer experience strategy and vision planning that puts your customers at the heart and grounds your ideas in a human-centred perspective.
Your strategy and vision
Building a picture of what could be better
What does it feel like for a customer to use your service? How does it compare to your competitors? How do you want your service to stand apart from anyone else? What are the little things that help or hinder the experience?
We support you in making your customer-centric vision a reality. Designing simpler, more effortless experiences to engage with your customers. We help you to define, design and implement a strategy that make you simpler to deal with, more human and more focused on customers. You’ll find departments that have been siloed for years working together and everyone asking “what’s best for the customer?” A human-centred vision for your business.
Defining the reason to change
Create a clear, customer-centric vision
Building a compelling reason to change – starting with what really matters to your customers
We can help you develop a vision that makes sense to the whole organisation. Rooted in what matters to customers we’ll develop a compelling “reason to change” that highlights the benefits and possibilities of changing how you deliver your service.
Telling a customer-focused story: We can craft a narrative that explains why your vision matters and how it can help in improving the way customers experience your service. Through analysing and interpreting your existing customer feedback, or conducting our own Voice of the Customer Programme, we’ll build a clear picture of what your customers want, where you could improve and what that could mean for
Getting stakeholder buy-in and managing resistance: We’ll help you gauge and navigate your organisation’s appetite for change, and highlight the impact of not changing. We’ll help stakeholders see “outside in” – making it clear how customers perceive you and what that means for customer satisfaction (and the bottom line). We can help you navigate some of the common blockers and concerns to change and highlight the importance of a “one team” approach to customer experience where silos matter less that delivering the service your customers deserve.
Getting teams onboard: Getting buy in from teams, particularly front-lines, is essential in making your vision a success. Very often, improvements to your customer experience can have a beneficial impact on teams. Reductions in repeat calls, fewer irritated customers, less complaints and lower effort. We can build a series of user cases that highlight the impact of poor customer experience on your teams, and the potential impact a better customer experience could have.
Defining outcome and the impact of not changing: It’s a cliche to say that the only constant is change, but it’s also true. By highlighting the impact of doing nothing we can demonstrate the value in your customer-focused change. This also gives you a set of definable, measurable outcomes you can follow as you begin your change initiative.
Setting a way forward: Developing a route map is essential to giving your vision focus and direction. How will you know when you’ve achieve your vision? What will it look like for customers and colleagues? We can develop a clearly defined route map to support the change – aligning it with operational and technology changes.
Where you are today and where you want to be
Understanding where you are today
If your experience is disparate, owned by multiple departments and often doesn’t offer a “joined-up” brand experience for customers, we can help. We benchmark and improve your customer experience to uncover issues and highlight areas to focus on.
Our benchmarking gives a backbone for a robust overall customer experience strategy. We use objective assessment tools to diagnose the problems, build more robust processes and benchmark your tactics against industry best practice.
