FOR PUBLIC & PRIVATE SERVICES
Customer experience is what really drives behaviour and affects the products we buy or the services we use. This can be seen both in leading companies seeking growth and in public sector organisations seeking to deliver more effective and efficient services.
PDR has pioneered the discipline of Service Design - which involves applying a structured approach to the design and delivery of services. This approach is often delivered across multiple platforms and touchpoints and results in improvements to the quality, consistency and customer experience of services. PDRs service design group is highly experienced and has been at the forefront of service design practice for the past five years. It provides award-winning design for an international client base and works with a vast range of companies, from leading high street brands to regional public sector bodies, designing tangible solutions that add value for customers, generate new revenue streams and improve poorly performing services.
The teams location within PDR allows it to draw upon expertise across the organisation as a whole in product, UX and User-Centred Design and also to access the very latest tools and technologies- including ethnographic research, ideation, rapid prototyping and user testing- in support of creating services that truly engage with end users and meet the delivery requirements of the provider.
The Greenhouse is a training course created by PDR to up-skill designers and policy makers in the delivery and management of service design projects in the public sector.
This three-day course brings clients to PDR to participate in workshops, projects and practical learning around a current service challenge faced by the organisation.
Developed primarily for service organisations looking to place greater emphasis on customer experience, The Greenhouse is also used by organisations to improve the performance of their contact centres, face-to-face services and innovation processes.
