1. The challenge
2. How W5 helped Gas Networks Ireland
Our journey with Gas Networks Ireland began in 2007, empowering them to leverage customer-centricity as a key strategic pillar to achieve their objectives. We closely partner with the internal Customer Experience team to support their work across many competencies and capabilities that are necessary for success.
Central to the early and continuing success of their initiatives has been the design, mobilisation and management of a bespoke, always-on customer listening programme, which delivers a 360⁰ view of GNI and all service providers’ performance. The programme is a performance management and engagement programme for all stakeholders, allowing easy identification of pain points in the customer journey and identification of opportunities for improvement with responsibilities clearly identifiable.
An insight-to-action programme embeds a systemic capability to analyse, share and act on feedback, driving improved customer service with support from employees, service providers and leadership. This is a truly customer-centric culture.
- Company Culture - as a company with a traditional engineering lens on operations, the listening programme has succeeded in moving the customer closer to the heart of decision-making, impacting numerous operational and strategic projects.
- Journey level impacts - every year since the commencement of the programme GNI has improved customer sentiment on key journeys.
- Cost savings - the efficiency savings have been significant, for example, a 37% reduction in inbound calls.
