What we did
A research report detailing the results and learnings. This provided the senior team at Fiat with a deeper understanding the attitudes of their customers and front line staff.
A strategic framework with implementation guidelines. This provided a solid base for idea generation.
A series of 10 concepts were created across all journey phases, alongside high-level deployment requirements. This included the tools systems and content needed to deliver the experience across multiple touch-points.
A future journey framework to help communicate the vision to the organisation and network.
The strategic framework has been used to inform further work streams across the organisation.
The senior team now have a clearer understanding of the current customer and dealer experience and where the quick wins are for improvement.
A series of concepts are currently in development with an eye to launch in the near future. Whilst not yet fully implemented these concepts demonstrated the direction that should be pursued to meet customer needs of the future.
