Our in-depth Voice of the Customer research framework (VoC) is designed specifically to help you understand the “why” of the measurements through meaningful, actionable, and drivable feedback. With deep and candid insights into what your clients really feel about doing business with you, this framework is tailor-made for your company to ensure you uncover business growth opportunities that have been there all along, as well as help you to retain your key client base, mitigate risk, and drive accountability.
Good VoC research goes beyond just sending out surveys and hoping for kind comments. It digs deeper, and shifts from collecting aggregate data to collecting information about each individual. Most importantly, it asks the right questions. While collecting feedback has always been an important part of marketing, it’s knowing how to use this feedback to constantly improve on your offering that will set you apart from your competitors. You need to be speaking directly to your customer’s ever-changing needs.
Take a look at our 10-minute explainer video on how we use our True Voice of Customer Programme to increase a company’s sales by up to 30%. Purposefully designed with three unique stages, this framework is a game-changer for businesses as it takes them from being genuinely customer-unaware to customer-centric.

Strategic client research
This involves conducting strategic research with key decision-makers and stakeholders. This study’s findings reveal how well you are meeting your customers’ needs and demands, as well as identifying key areas of risk, which is detrimental to client retention.
At the management level, we conduct operational research to provide insight into your day-to-day operations. You’d be surprised how much of what happens at this level either enhances or detracts from your client’s experience. Understanding what needs to be improved internally to meet the expectations of your customers is a key takeaway from our operational level.
Customer focus groups
Our expert research facilitators lead focus groups to collect feedback and actionable insights from your customers. Our approach is collaborative, putting participants at ease and engaging them. Our collaborative methodology not only tests customer sentiment, but customers are more likely to be truly open and honest because we are independent of your company. While feedback can be negative at times, it is extremely beneficial in developing deeper relationships with your clients.
Employee engagement research
Often an overlooked area in companies, employee research helps us to gain a thorough understanding of employee work satisfaction and involves a deep dive into what’s making them happy or unhappy. We then work closely with your team to design practical solutions that empower them, and improve productivity, customer service and overall performance.
"When we are managing so many different brands under one account, it is critical that we know what’s going on across all of them. Having a continuous understanding of how the client feels about us or rates our services, we can proactively make adjustments where necessary, thereby keeping them satisfied with our offering and securing contract renewals."
"As a consequence of CX intervention and client interviews, we’ve been able to use Customer Experience as our main differentiator. We’ve retained big contracts and picked up on things that have enabled us to redefine, adapt, or innovate our offerings. Our ability to timeously be both proactive and reactive is what sets us apart from our competitors"

They are extremely professional. We see huge value in engaging with nlightencx. They offer a personal touch in hearing the voice of the customers. I much prefer this approach to an online survey.

The qualitative feedback they have provided in terms of our client’s perception of our service has helped us to keep on top of our game. We have transformed the business as a result. There is a growing trend globally to provide evidence of the CX. We have an internal process at Tsebo to monitor client feedback and the research from nlightencx provides the qualitative element. They have been a great support on this journey."
"nlightencx will always be a partner that we can use for research and as a sounding board. They have assisted with tactical business projects where we needed some immersion work to be done to inform the way forward for those projects We see them as a trusted partner who offer thought leadership and insight into global best practice. We need to continuously be innovative, and I believe that this is the area that nlightencx adds value. "
"We have developed an ability to deal with different clients who have very specific needs. We are learning through the constant feedback we receive from nlightencx’s research that we need to curate our offerings according to our different clients. For instance, no two events, shows, or conferences are the same, and it can be just one verbatim comment from a client that can influence how we adjust our offering so that we can deliver a better customer experience"
