Project Description

A former student has worked on a project to determine KPI’s (lead and lag) to measure customer experience and define opportunities for improvement and differentiation opportunities. KPI’s to measure Customer Experience (current status) have been set based on benchmarks. He has proposed a path forward and we want to take the next step.

This project is meant to collect and develop data and measure the chosen KPI’s with the goal to define the as is Customer Experience score of SACHEM’s offerings. Based on the as-is situation, the goal is to set new bench marked targets and develop solutions to reach the new targets by analyzing the existing weaknesses.

  • Define available data sources
  • Define new data sources
  • Measure the “as is” customer experience
  • Develop actionable recommendations to optimize/improve the customer experience
  • Propose a next (follow-up) assignment

Trigger for the project

SACHEM Europe is mentioned to be a reliable and a trustworthy supplier to its customers. General feedback is that we are responsive and flexible. We are evaluated on various criteria on a regular basis by a number of our customers. This is a lagging indicator for how we are performing. By measuring our Customer Experience we have a better forward looking view on how we are preforming on the various criteria. Additionally we will be able to take actions to improve if necessary and measure if our actions are paying off. Ideally we can steer our service levels and differentiate our service and offering to optimize our value.
