Your customer journey is a path created by data.
Our approach is to listen to that customer data, rigorously analyze it and apply in-depth knowledge of your industry and unique culture to create actionable, lasting solutions. That’s how we do business every time.
How Journey Mapping Transforms Your Customer Experiences
The Northridge Group’s journey mapping process enables clients to truly see themselves through the lens of their customers at each phase of their journey. We help you understand the stated and unstated needs of your customer, identify and resolve their current pain points and focus on the key Moments of Truth where there is an opportunity to ‘wow’ your customers with your service.
As part of our customer journey mapping process, we’ll work collaboratively to:
the Customer Experience from the customers’ perspective and in their terms.
experiences across all customer segments and functional teams.
it simple and reflect the actions, thought processes and emotions at each step.
reflect what is happening vs. what is supposed to happen.
multi-disciplinary workshops to gather information across all departments.
business SMEs and functional experts to gather insights.
key Moments of Truth and key metrics for incremental improvement.
many different data sources to quantify the frequency and quality of the experience.

The challenges this digital transformation presents for companies will continue post-pandemic, yet most companies are not adequately prepared.
