Challenge

How might we engage global teams in service design?

Optimizing the service you deliver to your customer requires insights from multiple parts of the organization. In-person workshops allow stakeholders to build off each other's contributions, adding diversity and creating alignment that results in a more holistic improvement.

That was impossible with the customer support team in another continent.

“Moving to MURAL, it went from impossible to possible
- it was like an infinite increase in productivity”

Solution

Digital service design

Instead of relying on in-person workshops and having to deal with travel budget and logistics, Intuit decided to collaborate digitally.

They created a Service Blueprint in a shared digital canvas and invited all team members to participate from their locations using their devices, some of which were touch ready. They also opened up a video conferencing channel and had plenty of screens with people's faces on them.

The support team was able to uncover a moment in the customer experience that was generating an excessive amount of support tickets. Collaborating remotely, the teams were able to co-create a solution that not only reduced support hours, but also improved the overall customer experience.

Results

Radical collaboration in service design

The whole global team participated and engaged in the project. They were able to take advantage of service design, regardless of their geographical distribution.

They were also able to keep iterating after the workshop and have service design as part of their regular process.

The team was freed from weeks of scheduling logistics to now start fixing services gaps in a few days.

Reduce Need to Travel
