Digital innovation and the changing online world have propelled customer expectations to new heights. It’s up to the you to keep up and deliver. Which product or service qualities do customers value most? And how can you deliver on them?
It’s time to get personal. Today’s customers expect highly intuitive, personalized experiences and interactions every step of the way. This goes beyond addressing someone by their name. Eventually, every touchpoint and interaction throughout the customer journey should be personalized.
How? By understanding the customer and tracking his behavior across channels. Customer journeys are dynamic, companies need to collect customer interaction data across new channels. Thanks to the development of AI and it's deep learning algorithms, customer behavior can be predicted better than ever. Thus, resulting in a more personalized experience for users.
Not only does Netflix use a complex algorithm to offer its users the best possible recommendations, it personalizes the artwork of each series or movie to look as appealing as possible to each user. Through a machine learning algorithm it figures out which art style catches your eye the most. In the near future, Netflix will go even further with personalized content tailored to your taste.

The rapid growth and development of the online world has changed how efficient we expect businesses to be. The always-on culture means 24/7 customer service has become a standard. It means free 1-day shipment is a given. It means mobile-oriented experiences are a must. Customers expect to connect with companies on their terms. They choose the time, place and platform. Companies need to anticipate and understand which type of customer they are dealing with. ‘Customer is king’ has never been more true.

The connected customer demands a connected journey. Customers are no longer tied to a single channel. They like to browse in-store, shop online, share feedback through mobile apps and ask questions on social media. Multichannel turns into omnichannel. Therefore it has become critical for you to deliver a seamless experience and increase the amount of contact points between you and your customers. Customers judge companies based on their experience as a whole - not just interactions with individual departments.
Automotive showrooms have shifted from traditional offices with large parking lots to ‘experience centers’ that focus on customer interactions. Tesla owns mostly small showrooms with large interactive screens that allow customers to play around with specifications. Staff members tour the showroom with iPads and help customers in personalizing their vehicle. Tesla lets customers test drive their customized car and place an order for the factory on site, instead of selling through third-party franchised dealers, ensuring a connected journey.Learn more
Digital innovation has introduced a new mindset in the way we grade products and services. Delivering the best product for the best price simply does not cut it anymore. Especially the younger generation is looking for an end-to-end experience, across the full customer journey.

Just like we expect our personal relations in the physical world to be.
Bacardi Martini, the world famous drink, is all about experiences. In the summer of 2019 we co-created the Martini Time concept, together with BORIS.

It’s not just about ‘fast and easy’ but about focusing on detail and using digital technologies to offer something that is ‘just right’.

Companies that know how to disrupt and innovate are redefining convenience directly in the context of highly personalized consumer experiences. In a customer's mind the label of convenience translates into a business being viewed as:
KBC and Belfius, both belgian banks, are working very hard to provide the highest level of convenience. When products, services, experiences and prices become very much alike, sometimes due to regulation, convenience becomes the decisive factor for customers.

Have you ever considered switching banks because of the usability of their app? The new generation, Gen. Z, does it all the time.Learn more
For Denys, world leader in construction, we build a mobile app that digitizes and streamlines the process of construction site safety inspections. Convenience is the #1 priority, as inspectors described the original process as faulty, tedious, cumbersome and dated. We made it as easy as possible for inspectors to fill out an inspection report, add photos, notes or other data, and upload it to a relevant network - a convenient flow that poses as few barriers as possible. The app has offline compatibility, suggests the building site using geo-location and is big-finger-approved.Learn more
