Service Experience Strategy

Lead through innovative service strategies that deliver remarkable experiences.

A service experience strategy expresses your vision, measurable objectives and a long-term action plan. Ultimately, it will help you deliver remarkable service experiences across all customer touchpoints. To be truly effective, your strategy must clearly articulate how you want your customers to feel about your brand and organisation. It must align with your vision and be embraced by all key stakeholders in your organisation. We help you do this by working collaboratively with you to drive customer retention and acquisition and build loyalty.

Map the experience

We work with you to map a service experience strategy to effect lasting service design improvements. The strategy is an actionable, working document marked by service strategy goals that really are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely.

holistic service approach

Our multidisciplinary team of service design experts helps break down ‘siloed’ approaches, ensuring all stakeholders are working towards a shared vision, while striving to deliver a service experience strategy that will enable your organistion to thrive.

where to start

We start by meeting with key stakeholders to capture your overall service experience objectives, vision and mission and align them with your service experience strategy. We also define your business drivers and success metrics for a focused plan going forward.

Competitive landscape analysis and customer experience mapping may be conducted together with an audit of customer touchpoints to assess current service experience pain points.

TIMING
The typical duration for creating a service experience strategy is 4-6 weeks.

how we do it

Our Service experience strategy approach provides a solid framework to improve, innovate and build connected experiences based on your goals, business drivers and customer expectations. We use Akendi’s Experience Quadrant model as a first step, to measure how well your service is executing in four key quadrants: Business, Technology, Content, and Service.

Using Akendi’s Experience Quadrant model as well as other innovative tools and techniques, we will help you align your business objectives, vision, mission and goals with customer expectations, guiding future service experience efforts.

what you get

A roadmap for the successful implementation of your service experience strategy. A strategic document typically includes:

  • Service experience journey audit
  • Mission, vision, objectives
  • Service positioning and attributes
  • Success metrics & long-term plan

A service experience strategy is critical to consistently meeting and exceeding your customer’s expectations. It is the key to transforming your business from product-focused to client-focused: drive customer retention and improve loyalty and acquisition.
