Any organization that seeks to stand out from the pack must understand their clients inside and out. They must improve the client experience today to build the client experience of tomorrow. We help you move towards a culture that puts the client at the center of every decision.
OUR CLIENT CENTRICITY SOLUTIONS
At Olivia, we know organizations are complex systems made up of people who are mobilized by a clear sense of purpose. That is why we take a multifaceted approach to change.
CREATING A CLIENT-CENTRIC CULTURE
We help you create a culture that puts the client at the center. So that any decision made in any area of your company necessarily focuses on the needs of your clients.
This new culture will make your organization stand out and will ensure that your competition will be unable to match the unique experience you offer your clients.
CO-CREATION OF SOLUTIONS
The place that clients occupy within an organization’s culture and internal processes varies from one to company to another.
Understanding your clients is the first step towards building a more mature relationship. We develop workshops and interventions to identify who your client is and what their needs are. Based on these insights, we help you to rethink your company processes and adapt them to the client experience you envision.
For your organization to be truly centered on your clients, you need all your collaborators to share the same vision and objectives. Everyone must be aligned!
At Olivia, we carry out bespoke interventions for each team. We look at their beliefs, their paradigms, their work models, and the variables that impact their performance.
Being client-centric impacts decision-making throughout your organization. That is why we reach out to all levels of your company, trying to raise awareness about the importance of focusing on clients, in terms of processes, effort, and mentality.
BRINGING ABOUT CHANGE
Change only comes when a company takes concrete steps and sends a clear message about the road ahead.
We assist in and drive the implementation of such change. Our methodology is based on the following principles: an alignment of culture with business strategy, a multidisciplinary approach to cultural transformation, a commitment to sharing knowledge, and an eye towards client-building capacity.
We design tools and key performance indicators so this cultural change becomes part of your organization’s DNA
What Was The Challenge?
For this pharmacy chain, we had previously worked on redefining the company’s culture and cultural values. The next challenge was to improve the client experience so that it aligned with one of the organization’s key cultural principles: “We are passionate about our customers.”
To ensure this statement rang true, the organization sought to become fully customer-centric.
How Did We Help In Our Role As Client- And Customer-Centricity Consultants?
We helped the chain’s collaborators gain the skills and behaviors they needed to design customer-centric experiences.
As Olivia, we allowed the company to understand its customers’ journey map. We identified the user archetypes at targeted store locations, collecting data on: customer expectations and related pain points at each location, customer touchpoints, and the channels involved in the customer experience.
We charted the customer experience at every touchpoint in these locations and generated a model of the customer — and the kind of treatment he or she expects.
We accompanied the organization through this unfamiliar process, as it incorporated a new methodology and interdisciplinary work routines.
We encouraged collaborators to rethink how they worked on a day-to-day basis and recenter their efforts on customers’ needs. In doing so, we helped the entire organization be more sensitive to the customer experience.
Finally, we implemented a new customer-centric service model and methodology in the chosen locations, achieving a very high adoption rate in both cases.
What Concrete Actions Did We Carry Out?
Our methodology involved gradual innovation and agility through an interdisciplinary task force made up of the organization’s collaborators.
Our work was performed in stages. We identified the scope of work and the stakeholders who would become part of the task force. Then we assessed all existing projects across the organization, looking to strengthen customer-centricity within each project.
We aligned with the company management to define the main attributes of the desired customer experience.
Once the main challenges were determined, we designed a customer service model, benchmarking customer experience and service models in several industries and analyzing data from mystery shopper research and other relevant tests.
We carried out collaborative work sessions with the task force, segmenting customers by location and deciding on the archetypes that would guide our improvement of the customer experience. After this, we drew a journey map, starting with the moment when a customer steps into the pharmacy, to understand how they interact with the company at each touchpoint.
Collaborators performed field work, listening to customers and perceiving the day-to-day work of the company’s front lines. This led to collaborators being more empathetic to the needs of both customers and the customer-facing workforce.
Through an agile methodology, structured by sprints, we generated a solution to the pain points identified in the journey map. We designed an initial version of this solution and shared it with the workforce, leading the company one step closer to customer-centricity.
