We work along two intertwined tracks:
We begin with extensive off- and on-line research, thorough end customer interviews and market and competitive analysis. A mutual understanding of your business, your customers and the market realities is a core requirement of success.
Research helps us find digital opportunities. But in order really capture these, we need a Service Design mindset. It is our role to help you think across departmental boundaries, from the outside-in, customer-first. We help lay bare the pain points and opportunities in the customer journey.
With that radically customer-centric mindset, together we create customer interactions, internal processes and systems.
The next level of our collaboration is the coherent design of the complete customer experience. We help you select the right tools and solutions to keep winning the hearts and minds of your customers.
Designing the change together is one thing, realizing it is another You’ll need our experts to manage this change and move your whole business to the next level.
In short, our collaborations are the fuel of a workable digital transformation.

We all know the customer experience impacts the bottom line. Experience influences the decision to become a customer, remain a customer or recommend you to other people.
The customer experience is a direct result of how a business has designed its systems and processes. In other words: the backstage dictates what happens on the front stage.
Connecting these backstage systems and processes can dramatically improve the customer experience.
After digitalisation and digital transformation, data is the new hero on the playing field. A logical step when it comes to evolving towards an optimal customer experience. Companies are therefore looking for various different data profiles. In addition, agencies and consultancy firms are attaching greater importance to this in their current approach and services.
As a result, buzzwords are often bandied about and certain terms are misused or taken out of context. Translating data into practical business value is not always straightforward. At The Reference, we therefore use the term 'data consultant' as we place the emphasis on the broader picture and offer more concrete guidance according to the needs of our clients.
