Large German vehicle manufacturer

Development and establishment of effective CX management


A major German vehicle manufacturer wants to improve the experience of their customers in online direct sales and marketing interactions. The aim is to address the needs of the various target groups.
At the same time, the company is aiming to raise the brand experience to a higher level and is therefore planning to introduce effective customer experience management in this area.

Our approach

In several parallel project strands, we initially set up tailor-made tools, frameworks, and processes for the areas of insights generation and management, CX strategy, and experience design. On this basis, customer journeys and use cases were generated for various target groups, strategic fields of action were prioritized, and specific user-centric applications were designed for online sales.

  • An enablement kit for the collaborative development of customer-centric measures
  • A comprehensive understanding of customers in various segments, their journeys, expectations, and pain points in different phases as well as the key strategic fields of action in each case

New Growth

The newly created CXM function paved the way in marketing and online direct sales from a strong product and retailer focus to a more customer-centric and user-centric way of working.

The customer perspective is more systematically integrated into the decision-making process, ensuring that resources are used where they create real added value - for the business, for partners, and for customers.

The defined CX strategy indirectly also has a positive influence on an ecological level by contributing to the understanding, acceptance, and adaptation of sustainable vehicle concepts with innovative measures along the customer journey.
