The challenge

The client's internal decision to expand online grocery shopping resulted in a poor customer experience in a major global market. Shortcomings included poor relevancy in results​, customers being unable to refine their in-depth search to their preference​, and low customer satisfaction and service performance.

The service was disjointed across the client’s global markets and next roll out phases were planned for other global markets, so the need to create a global cohesive service template was urgent. They needed a best-in-class online search service to help customer experience. 

The approach

Taking a customer-centric approach, we contributed to the client's customer-centric evolution by incorporating customer needs into stakeholder conversations. This adapted the client's design process and aligned with their Customer Platform strategy. Within a 6-month project, the successful delivery global design foundations that served as a unified template for all markets and the service implementation department.

Extensive customer and business research across multiple channels was conducted, gaining insights into the client's service context and global competitors. Using agile methodologies, we managed the project, fostering collaboration and engagement from senior stakeholders in the client's global markets.
