CX & Service Design

Service design (SD) is the outer layer of our pie. This is where we bring together the internal processes and workflows to create the entire experience. It’s the delicious, flaky, just crunchy enough crust that holds it all together. Customer experience design (CX) is the layer down where we pinpoint every touchpoint the customer has with the brand. It’s the part where you bite into the pie. User experience (UX) design is the flavor and texture as you swirl it around your mouth. It’s the bit you interact with most as a customer and it’s the whole point of the pie. None of it works without each other and you can rave about the inside and feel disappointed with the crust or you can send everyone to go out and get theirs. We work with the whole pie but also split out the components to fix them up.

That’s what we do here by separating out customer experience & service design from the nittier gritty of UX (though there of course elements that overlap). With business objectives and your users in mind we work with you to create seamless, useful and enjoyable experiences that are there to meet a specific goal, whether internal or external to your business.

Some examples of what we work on: user or team onboarding, eCommerce / purchasing experiences,  back-end order management, account onboarding, project management workflows and more. We start from a ten-thousand foot view before mapping out the journey from start to end and then working on the details improving every touchpoint.

This is ideal for growing businesses and/or businesses that know they are frustrated with their systems and workflows and still doing a lot of manual work, want to spend more time in more important areas but are bogged down but running daily business, experiencing bottlenecks, need to leverage from their years of work, have focussed on key business issues and now need to really improve a process or are feeling a decrease in customer engagement, loyalty & competitive edge. Our clients for this service vary greatly in size but we find this service works best with companies that have 10 – 5,000 employees.
