Study process and deliverables

Omnichannel user test : from online research to point of sale

  • Just like a remote user test for a website or an app, users follow a scenario with several steps and objectives. Some of them are online, others are offline. They live their experience in real conditions, then they report it step by step.
  • The user had to look online for the closest shop to their home, go there, ask for information about the repair of their smartphone, and then decide accordingly whether or not to go ahead with the repairs.
  • The user gives feedback about their experience, like accessibility and visibility of the shop, vendor's reception and efficiency, or the offer.

  • Simultaneously, optimization points were identified to make the experience even more attractive and maximize the return on investment.
  • Signage and visibility of the shop, availability of parts, or perceived price were the main areas of improvement.
