Customer experience

In Consulting

EY teams’ approach to Customer Experience (CX), rooted in empathy and purpose, helps you generate the right insights to build differentiated, high-impact customer experiences that add long-term value to the customer, your organization and society.  

Your business challenge

Organizations must adapt to colliding forces to stay relevant in today’s marketplace. Emerging technologies, raised customer expectations for better experiences (regardless of sector) and shareholder push to create loyalty have forced organizations to ask the following questions:

  • How can we improve customer, employee and citizen experience to create enduring relationships and sustainable, long-term value?

  • How can we create better outcomes for our customers and stakeholders and drive purposeful growth?

  • How are we keeping up to date with, and responding to, ever-changing customer needs and expectations?

  • What are we doing to eliminate friction points for our customers and drive a more relevant, personalized experience?

  • How can we better connect employees with our business purpose and improve engagement?
  • How can we use technology and data to automate and orchestrate across all of our channels and improve customer experience?

  • Sustainable growth and value creation

    At EY, we believe great CX, designed with empathy and purpose, creates long-term value. In the digital age, customers seek organizations that understand their behavior based on human needs and data — not data alone. Focusing on purpose and sustainable value creation, rather than growth at any cost, helps organizations create enduring relationships with their customers and employees.    

    • Understand customer needs and behavior, identify pain points, and predict impact on customer value and business outcomes

    • Implement and iterate on new experiences
    • Organize resources, build capabilities, and implement data and tech to exceed customer expectations at scale

Organizations can then make the leap from a product/service- focus to a customer- focus by building an exceptional experience matched to customer preferences and perceptions of value.

    • Connect the full customer journey and make it relevant
    • Anticipate needs and reduce friction
