Introducing Mobile Diary Bootcamp

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

Understanding the customer experience has never been so important – or so challenging

Customer experience is today’s competitive battleground – designing a great experience makes the difference between business success and failure. But in order to design it, we first need to understand it – uncovering the needs, behaviours and contexts that shape any given experience.

The explosion of channels and touchpoints has made this task that bit harder, vastly increasing the number of possible journeys and experiences. Our job now is to piece together these fragments into one comprehensive story.

However, with the problem comes the cure. Mobile diaries are the coming together of traditional diary research and smartphone technology. Together they allow you to pull together a picture of people’s experience – without you having to leave the office.

Mobile diaries are a great way to address this challenge

Diary studies are a way of researching people in their natural environment – no need for artificial conference rooms or usability labs. They also help overcome recall issues – participants are asked to record things as they go rather than recall individual experiences days, even weeks after they happen.

Mobile technology amplifies this, making the data collection process easier, the geographic reach wider and the costs lower. Plus people carry their mobile phones with them everywhere, giving researchers the opportunity to get closer than ever to the point of experience.
