Customer experience research

Measuring customer experience (CX) helps you to remove pain points, optimise the relationship, and ultimately – maximise revenue

Our approach

Strengthening customer relationships is only possible by measuring customer experience. That’s not straightforward though. It evolves over time. Journeys change. Satisfaction fluctuates.

Loyalty? Customers can be fickle friends. So, you need an optimised CX programme to understand how your brand performs at every touchpoint. We’ll immerse ourselves in your business, while carefully establishing a programme of customer experience research to improve your performance. We’ll choose the best methodology, write the right questions, and ask the appropriate audience.

We’ll combine primary data, secondary data, stakeholder insights - and ultimately, we’ll build a highly actionable insight programme that drives improvement on your core financial metrics, customer experience metrics, or other KPIs. The good news is, businesses usually have plenty in place for successful customer experience analysis already. Even if you think yours doesn’t.

01

Mapping out the customer journey

Identify every touchpoint your customers have with your brand.

02

Evaluating existing data

Examine all the information that currently exists at each touchpoint for insights on overall performance. Build an optimised programme – to assess each touchpoint and fill the gaps from existing data.

03

Establishing the key drivers and barriers

Explore the factors that produce – or prevent – the desired actions at each touchpoint. Monitor ongoing performance against the key metrics.

04

Embedding new CX principles business-wide

Drive performance and boost revenue generating behaviours. Including predictive techniques ensures the programme doesn’t just tackle today’s issues, it puts processes in play to generate long-term growth.

Research benefits

Customer experience mapping

Understand all the touchpoints your brand has with customers. Identify the opportunities to delight or disappoint. By focusing on key decision-making milestones, you’ll see how to move more customers and prospects through the journey.

Driving loyalty and retention

Optimise your earned growth rate. Increase revenues from repeat sales and customer acquisitions via recommendations. Our programmes reveal the key characteristics behind churn rates – giving you all you need to limit lost sales, increase customer spend, and improve loyalty.

Setting a CX culture

Our programmes provide engaging presentations and outputs that drive positive action across any organisation. Real cultural change is a differentiator. It builds a buffer between those who actually implement a holistic customer experience strategy – and those who don’t.

Segmentation

Get granular – our results are robust at a segment and sub-segment level. Samples, as well as our reporting tools, reflect the vital value customer experience market research adds by identifying customers’ differing needs and wants.
