Our Client wanted to create a Customer Experience Map throughout all stages of the Customer
Journey, covering all used channels of interaction.
The ultimate goal was to improve the onboarding process, reducing the risk of creating a dis-jointed
experience for the current – and potential - customers.
The key research question was what were the customers’ needs, expectations and pain points at
the key touch point at every stage of the customer journey?
We designed and ran a three-stage survey:
A Qualitative Exploration (focus group discussions), to define and describe the customer journey
from customers’ perspective, registering the important drivers and touchpoints through the
A Quantitative Survey (CATI), to verify and “size” the qualitative findings. It provided better
understanding of the importance of the drivers influencing customers during their on-boarding
A Mystery Client Drill to capture the actual customer experiences in the branches and to evaluate
the employee performances vs. the company standards, client expectations and competitors.
Along with the detailed picture of the specific Customer Journey, the qualitative research
discovered the “correct reaction in extreme circumstances” to be the ubiquitous underlying driver
of satisfaction throughout the entire onboarding process, especially when lined with small gestures
of appreciation and time saving procedures.
The observed high level of satisfaction with the brand was also confirmed at the quantitative stage,
together with a couple of small, but very specific needs related to the credit card propositions. The
level of Client Service turned out to be defined by speed of service and (quality of) information
The applied holistic approach allowed us to capture – and analyze – the integral Customer Journey
and focus on the specific touchpoints with potential to improve the onboarding process.
This methodology allowed for very specific recommendations related to establishment of better
relationships (internal and external), corrections in employee attitude, stronger respect to the
client’s time and more effective transfer of meaningful information within and outside the
How LOGO Research covers the On-Boarding process:
The Quantitative Perspective Focus: What is most important – where shall we focus our efforts?

the size of the consideration set?

• How the actual experience changes the
perspective – what starts to be important
at this stage and what stops?
