Developing a new customer journey and user experience

NHBC is the standard setting body and leading home construction warranty and insurance provider for new and newly converted homes in the UK. It currently insures over 1.6m homes, with a market share of approximately 80%. Over the course of their history, they have provided warranty for around 7 million or 30% of all homes.

Over time their website had grown organically and had lost sight of the customer journey and user experience. Our brief was to review their existing online homeowner customer journey and make recommendations for improving the website.

The Challenge

Building a rich user experience

The key actions we undertook in this project included:

  • Reviewing Customer feedback from the feedback system to identify the pain points of users
  • Mapping out the current online homeowner journey, from finding the NHBC website via search or other 3rd party websites through to inner pages or form submissions
  • Identifying and communicating the priority scenarios that users experience
  • Putting the journey into a sitemap which annotates the options that a user can take
  • Documenting the the journey into one report that can be shared with colleagues
  • Identifying the calls to action required on each page of the website

Solution

After the review and mapping exercise, we identified 16 different components that could be improved for the customer journey to be enriched with faster access to the relevant information required for the key scenarios identified.

A 32 page report was presented to the Digital Marketing Manager clearly highlighting the recommendations which were very well received. Of the key recommendations, NHBC are now busy incorporating them into the overall web build for that richer user experience needed to ensure they stay as the number 1 warrany provider for new homes in the UK.
