Understanding The Customer Journey As-Is

We mapped a journey As-Is and we discovered key moments of truth and exit funnel of the customer. One of the key drops in the Customer Experience was resulting from a poor engagement strategy after the hearing device was bought and configured in store. 

2017 - Customer Journey Analysis and Design

Three activities to drive research

The research activity was structured as an exploration for the acquisition of users' pain points, purchase drivers, needs and reasons to leave.

 For this reason we decided to dive deep into the Customer Experience by leveraging a series of tools such as:

- Customer Interviews

- Intercept

- In Store Observation

Designing the questionnaire

Once we started to grasp the essence of the journey for the specific user type we could then collect all the questions needed to understand their unmet needs. We collected all the possible questions using post-its in a brainstorming fashion before finalizing the documents to be shared with the Client itself.
This process allowed us to further deepen our comprehension of the main experience pain points of the users.

Interviews in store

Example

We focused our attention on three main targets: between prospect, customer new, customer experienced, cassettisti and rejecters.

  • We set several questions to deeply know and understand the customer focus our attention on two key moments of their experiences:

    1. Few days after the first purchase
    2. Between sale and repurchase

    How

    1 hour interview planned together with the customer

    What we expect to understand:

    User needs, drivers to purchase or repurchase, life’s goals, attitude to live services (discover, purchase, learn), their relationship with customer services, which impact their deseas has in their lifes, product impacts, and reasons why the decided to reject (for cassettisti and rejecters)

    Note: Amplifon was be responsible to identify and recruit target users.

Intercepts in store

We intercepted people inside the store independently from their stage of the experience.

We set few questions to understand age, their stage of the journey, the reason why they are in the store, how many time they go in the store, their relationship with disease and products, their relationship with services, their favourite customer services approach (brand name), their perception about Amplifon and their products, ideas for a better world, what they don’t like in daily life.

How:

15 minutes interviews to people instore

What we understand:

We collected information about user’s overall experience with Amplifon and experience in store, reasons why users are in store, user’s satisfaction, user’s attititudes and behaviour related to the products and with services I their life.

Note: Amplifon was responsible to identify stores and inform directors about the activity and prepare wares to be signed by interviewers.
