This year, over 200 entries were submitted of which approximately only half were selected as finalists, and Elkjop has been honoured to be selected as a finalist in both of the categories in which they entered:
Best Use of Customer Analytics/Data in a Loyalty Programme
Improving customer satisfaction through continual data monitoring and analysis.
Best Use of Technology in a Loyalty Programme
Enhancing customer experience with instant customer feedback machines.
Magnus Feldt, Head of People Development at Elkjop, a division of Dixons Retail, comments on the pleasure of being a finalist: “This is a recognition that we are going in the right direction with our work to be the Earth’s most customer centric retailer.
We have tried in past different ways of using technology to enhance customer happiness, and our experience is that the simpler the solution, the better the result. With the HappyOrNot service, we can measure customer happiness to the hour, and, therefore, can take quick action when we see that we are doing something wrong as well as follow and spread best practices between our stores.”
“Elkjop has been a customer of HappyOrNot since 2012 when our customer satisfaction monitoring, measuring, and reporting services were first implemented into their operations. Since then, Elkjop has diligently made excellent and effective use of HappyOrNot, and has continual, marked improvement in their customer satisfaction results.
We are both thrilled and proud to be involved with Elkjop’s finalist nominations, and are looking most forward to a wonderful event,” says Heikki Väänänen, CEO and Co-Founder, HappyOrNot Ltd.
