Case study speaker
'Designing after-sales services that go beyond products'
Many fashion brands and retailers struggle to successfully create and deliver services that go beyond the services that are related to the products sold. The challenge is to switch from a product-centric service process to a holistic, customer-centric culture focused on added value to customers. This also counts for luxury fashion brands. Luxury fashion is quite a traditional context, not only in terms of the heritage of the brands that make up the sector, but also in the structure and operations of these very same brands.
In the past two years Flaminia and her colleagues have supported one of the top luxury fashion brands in improving their after-sales customer experience, by helping the company in understanding customer needs, analysing organisational hiccups and pain points, and by developing cross-department solutions to improve the after sales experience. This case study will show you that by focusing on the after sales journey, a company is able to develop a new way to deliver added value to the customer and to foster a customer-centric mind-set and iterative approach to the implementation of new services.
