Make your customer journey memorable
For retailers trading online and those in the e-commerce sector, not fully understanding your customers’ needs and wants can give your competitors a huge advantage. The current trend shows no sign of ending, more people are shopping online. If you’re not up and running now, your competitors will quickly gain a big advantage.

Knowing what your diverse customers really want
Everyone’s online shopping journey is different. What’s perfect for one customer might not work for someone else. For every 5-star review, someone will throw in a 1-star. Was it because of a confusing interface? Did your landing page look dated? Was your online shop incompatible with their mobile device?
Understanding what is working and what isn’t is essential for keeping (happy) customers.Show more
A customer’s journey with you doesn’t start and stop at the point of purchase. They saw an ad, or someone referred them, or your shop came out on top of a search. That was the first step on their journey. But their true experience starts once they visit your online shop or download your app.
This is when meeting diverse customer expectations becomes challenging – especially when each step could now be their last with you – but it’s possible.Show less
Crowdtesting helps you understand their journey
Our customer journey testing is developed to provide a comprehensive look at what is working and what isn’t when it comes to your customers and the user-friendliness of your digital solution – throughout their entire journey with you, from landing on your site to paying at checkout.
For the long haul and specific events, such as Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas, and everything in-between!
This includes developing use-cases that address specific scenarios, a range of open questions that can be answered as our crowdtesters go through your product, usability ratings, and more.Show more
Every aspect of your digital solution can then be tested to determine its usability, functionality, and compatibility. Can your customers seamlessly connect between your website, your mobile app, social channels, on any number of connected devices? Are there any potential issues at point-of-sale? How easily can they connect to your support services?
As your customers’ expectations continually evolve, ongoing testing can keep your products fresh and relevant – particularly when considering the many factors that influence your customers’ experience, from cultural, emotional, and socio-economic to more tangible factors including your product’s performance, accessibility, and localization.
Only then can you develop a truly seamless and consistent customer experience.Show less
How to deeply understand your customers
Scalable capacity: It’s all in the delivery
With thousands of packages being sent out each week, our client wanted to benchmark their delivery service to see if there was room for improvement and to discover any delivery issues when they were entering a new market. To replicate their delivery capacity, we brought in 300 crowdtesters to order 600 products.Show more
Not just from our client, but from one of their competitors.
Testers would receive information about what to order and would then answer several questions about the process. How long did the delivery take? How was the delivery service? Were all documents included? Was the packaging correct and what was their experience when unboxing their purchase? Every aspect of the purchase – from finding the product to receiving a refund when returning it – was tested.
Our crowdtesters’ customer feedback clearly highlighted areas that needed work, such as on average their competitors’ products arrived in three days and theirs in four. A clear area for improvement.
Being able to process so many orders in such a brief time was a clear benefit.Show less
Unboxing excitement: Avoiding Pandora’s box
For many customers there’s something special about opening a package. It’s all part of the experience that started with their initial purchase. In addition to the overall user experience of their online shop, our client wanted to better understand if the ‘unboxing’ of their products truly met the expectations of their customers.Show more
As a provider of high-end luxury goods, they didn’t want their customers to be let down as they opened their delivery. But to get this information, they needed unbiased feedback.
Our hand-picked crowdtesters were then brought in to provide a comprehensive quality assurance check on the entire ordering process but with a specific focus on unpacking their purchase.
Based on their comprehensive notes, our client could clearly see where, and why, improvements were needed to meet high expectations.Show less
Online shopping experience: Making the black box transparent
Too often the entire customer experience is hidden from retailers. Our client, Munich-based KELLER, wanted to ensure that they fully understood their customer’s shopping experience. Especially after an order was made, so they create unique digital experiences derived from data-based insights.Show more
Our crowdtesters, who exactly fit KELLER’s target group profile, were then brought on board to conduct a Customer Journey Test. During their time on KELLER’s sites, each tester was monitored with Remote Usability Videos to directly record what they did and hear what they had to say about each step as they did it.
Testers were also asked to note what they did ‘after’ the purchase. Did they regularly check their order history or perhaps look at competitor’s stores?
When the order finally arrived, what was that experience? Was there enough communication to the point it was delivered?
How did they feel when unboxing their purchase? As part of the overall test, products were then returned. How did it go, were there any issues regarding refunds?
In a second round, further qualitative feedback on brand perception was obtained through in-depth interviews. For KELLER, the testing revealed in detail what their customers experienced along every touchpoint with their brand. The results also helped KELLER to enrich their personas with more characteristics in order to better serve the needs of their end customers in the further development of their stores.Show less
