We utilise customer insight to inform our design thinking, collaborating across the business to create solutions and deliver customer centric journeys, which are monitored to understand the impact they make, where we constantly scrutinise the performance to identify further areas of improvement across our customer touchpoints.

As part of our iterative design process, we define and understand our customer needs and incorporate these into design proposals which are thoroughly user tested through remote and in-person, using standard methodologies, using metrics to measure performance and propose design solutions to stakeholders. Here we manage our internal approval process of our customer journeys and work with our technology teams to ensure a streamlined delivery that meets the needs of our customers. As a team, we never stop iterating. We never stop listening to our customers. We never stop monitoring our data. We never stop improving.
