How enthusiastic employees inspire customers and vice versa

Katharina Büeler was Touchpoint Manager of the Swiss Federal Railways SBB AG. In this function, the experienced Customer Experience and Change expert lead the strategic project “Anchoring the customer’ view”, which she presented at the CCC Convention. To improve the customer experience many areas were optimized at the SBB, such as: the contact center, the complaint management and the topic RailClean for which cleaners were asked to share their ideas on how to improve customer satisfaction in workshops.

Katharina Büeler looked at those areas of contact with “the customer’s glasses”, optimized them accordingly to the customer perception and inspired both the employees and the managers to achieve this cultural change – from the inside to the outside view, from top-down to bottom-up. Engaging the employees was the key to success.

With these actions the customers and their needs moved in the center of attention.

Customer experience in a digital world

In her presentation Ilham Guggenheim described digitization as part of the fourth industrial revolution. It is a revolution of the societies, as reflected in the use and adaptation of new digital tools. Today, for example, every user checks his smartphone on average 150 times a day. Together with the change of the society, there was a paradigm shift from Single- via Multi-, Cross- to today’s Omni-Channel.

According to Ilham Guggenheim hundreds of micro-moments make the customer journey. The expert recommends to identify them and work on improving the “Pain points”. To do so, the entire organization should be involved and both top-down and bottom-up combined.

In a Case Study Ilham Guggenheim showed the success story of Auchan, one of the largest supermarket and hypermarket chains in France. Auchan established the Drive concept, a new distribution channel between e-commerce and traditional shopping.

True digital transformation is only possible if the entire organization is undertaking this change. Within digital, transform customer experience is the central point.
