Designing User-Focused Experiences

Users Expect Businesses and Governments to Deliver Personalized Journeys

As technology and digital products become pervasive in our lives, customers, employees, and citizens now expert businesses and governments to deliver smart, standardized, predictable, and user-centric experiences. Organizations that provide user-centric experiences will be able to flourish, those that don’t will falter. The latter must transform their status quo.

For established organizations, enabling this transformation can be challenging; disparate service portfolios, outdated processes and frameworks, data privacy requirements, and internal barriers to process innovation can all hinder innovation. To top it all off, these increasing customer expectations are increasing being met by new players that deliver digital-native solutions, making it imperative for CXOs and customer experience team to act quickly.

Customer Experience Management is key to this transformation. The field features a diverse and growing range of services, methodologies, and tools, from CX strategy definition, to customer feedback platform implementation and journey design to ensure a smooth, customer-centric transition.

Service Design Ensures Customer Focus

Today’s fast-moving Service Design approaches incorporate multiple rounds of testing and customer feedback loops in order to assess user experience assumptions through dependable research and frameworks. By including all relevant stakeholders from a larger ecosystem, services can be co-designed so that they not only operate seamlessly and incorporate all relevant portfolios but also actively anticipate customer needs and expectations.

Customer Feedback Management Platforms Provide Client Insights

New methods of customer feedback extraction enable us to shorten information collection and reaction times. Instead of seeing a performance metric drop with no clear reasoning, disparate data can now be unified into a single platform that can provide a comprehensive view into the factors that led to such a drop.

Solutions such as SAP Qualtrics, along with others, allow for on the fly action and a continuous loop of customer feedback and satisfaction development. This often leads to a rise word to mouth recommendations, reduction in churn, and a growth in per customer/user/product revenue. Furthermore, the insights gained from well-managed CX programs provide an unlimited source of ideas for improvement, be it about things gone wrong or well as ideas for new services / improvements.
