Digital Transformation case study for Change Management #customer experience #B2B #gamification

The Customer

The NOOA Project arrived at BeHappy from Finland, where our customer, a consulting company specialized in change management, helps big firms to improve their competitiveness through a culture change process focused on Customer Experience

The

request

One of the main problems they were facing was resistance to change. In big firms’ procedures are deeply assumed and employees won’t participate easily in a process that most of the time meant trouble for them, and sometimes was even seen as a threat.

The higher management couldn’t communicate the benefits of the change to middle managers and employees easily. We were asked to design a digital service that could handle this change process and engage the users effectively.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The research has laid an optimal foundation for future business success. BeHappy excelled at managing tasks and keeping track of deadlines. They have a client-oriented, flexible communication style.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a senior product manager for OVO Energy, an energy technology company as well as a retail energy provider.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BeHappy?

We hired BeHappy to carry out user research regarding the needs of Spanish consumers in the energy industry as we’re aiming to launch into that market later this year. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The team collaborated with internal stakeholders to plan out the user research. Then, they managed one-on-one, in-person interviews with consumers in Spain. The final product was a 60-page report. 

What is the team composition?

I had one direct contact point, and BeHappy brought on other agencies to carry out the recruitment and interviews.

How did you come to work with BeHappy?

I provided a general brief to a few different agencies, and BeHappy’s response was the most impressive. We both had a similar mindset about product development and user research. They were interested in my project, and I could tell they had a collaborative, agile working style.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested between $10,000 and $50,000 with the team.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began the project in February 2019 and it was completed in May 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Since we’re in an early phase, we haven’t seen tactical benefits yet. However, the research they’ve conducted has been a step in the right direction. It’s propelled us toward defining our initial proposition for the Spanish market. Also, their suggestions have added value. Now, we’re working with the team on a second project that focuses on quantitative analysis.

How did BeHappy perform from a project management standpoint?

It’s easy to get in touch with them, and they are very accommodating with their time. We appreciated how they conducted the interviews in person.

They used modern, collaborative tools such as Trello, Google Drive, and Miro. We used Trello for high-level project management and Miro to collaborate by sharing documents and images. We communicate via WhatsApp and email. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

The project manager does a good job of managing expectations and keeping track of deadlines. Whenever we talked, he never let us get lost in the details. Our conversations were always aligned with the project goals.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The final presentation could have been more actionable and concise as the final report was 60 pages. Even though recommendations were included in the final report, they could have also been included in the presentation.

Feedback summary: 

The site was successfully launched and the new appearance is significantly favored for its usability and design. As a team, BeHappy has been supportive and speedy in implementing new tools and following project outlines. Their display of expertise is promising for the continued engagement.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the publications officer for a plant science research organization.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BeHappy?

We hired BeHappy to make a new website for our organization. The previous developers we hired were difficult to work with and we needed a team to add a number of new features to the site.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We gave the BeHappy team our requirements, and they built the site with the new functions included. For example, they added a members-only section and created the page for login information. Throughout the process, their team advised us on every aspect of the site, from the design to survey content. They’re currently maintaining the site.

What is the team composition?

I’m primarily in contact with Javier (Co-Founder & CEO, BeHappy), and there was a team working behind him.

How did you come to work with BeHappy?

I followed a recommendation and included BeHappy in our process. They sent us a budget offer and were proactive compared to other companies. They were the best fit and continuously checked in with our team, so we decided to work with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in September 2018 and, though the site is live, we’re still working together. There are several tasks left to finish the project, so we expect to continue together into the foreseeable future.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We were able to launch the completed site, but we have no metrics this soon after going live. However, it has had a huge visual impact on us. It is a modern, intuitive, and user-friendly site.

How did BeHappy perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve done everything within the deadlines and have been flexible when we couldn’t get them content on time. BeHappy uses Trello and InVision throughout the project to share documents and communicate. The project manager met with us in person, and we interact primarily over Skype and email.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It feels like they’re available around the clock—whenever I need something, they’re ready. They provide a special treatment that we hadn’t experienced before, so we value that.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Although we appreciate their speed, there are some occasions where I have to focus solely on their team because of how quickly they were ready for feedback. However, it’s their process and we’ve been happy with them.

Their services produced helpful results, and the suggestions they provided proved useful once implemented. The team was always prompt and available, but their use of only online communication meant a personal connection was sometimes lacking.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the founder of a recently-created company that provides consulting and training services for gyms.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BeHappy?

We hired them for digital marketing consultation services.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They put together a proposal for a scope of work that adhered to our budget. It included a website, social media profiles, and management. They used different online tools as Invision and RealtimeBoard, among others.

The first worked on company research and discovery and secondly, provided consulting to evaluate our website.

What is the team composition?

I was in direct contact with two people, but I’m not aware of how many more were involved in the project.

How did you come to work with BeHappy?

I met the owner of the company at an entrepreneurs’ workshop some time ago. He was winning an award, which gave me a good impression of him and his company. I decided to contact them when this project came up.

How much have you invested in them?

We spent around €1,600 (approximately $1,800).

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from September–November 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

They helped us to establish our target clients, our strengths as a company, and so on. It was helpful, but I found the cost to be high—perhaps it was something that we could have done ourselves.

Then, after evaluating our website, they proposed some changes and improvements. That was very helpful, and I implemented the changes they proposed. I’m very happy with those results.

How did BeHappy perform from a project management standpoint?

We used Google Hangouts and Skype, always communicating online. The only downside to that was the reduced human contact, which I personally prefer. However, they always met all deadlines and they were always very professional.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re very well versed in what they do and are great at communicating and proposing solutions. Their knowledge and their customer service stand out the most.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The communications only through Skype and Hangouts can be limited.

How did you come to work with BeHappy?

Both of our companies were delegates at an expo in Japan, and we bonded at that event.

How much have you invested with them?

What is the status of this engagement?

We've worked with them on different projects, but this project started around September 2018 and is ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

BeHappy created an aesthetically pleasing, user-friendly website with new and exciting features. It's already performing better than our previous site and receiving positive feedback.

How did BeHappy perform from a project management standpoint?

Their communication is great. They work in a very structured, transparent, and professional manner, using the latest project management tools to keep tasks organized.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I had been struggling with pitching the company before working with BeHappy, but because their team listens and takes the time to learn about their clients, they were able to create a product that helps me more effectively communicate our business to the public.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. Everything's been great thus far.

What did you find most impressive about them?

BeHappy was creative and gave us innovative ideas for the site. They managed to make our front page on 3D; we didn’t even know we could do that.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could lower their prices.

BACKGROUND

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there

I am in charge of technology at Vicman3, a national distributor of hygiene and cleansing products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BeHappy?

In general, all of our direct competitors were investing in new technologies to capture new clients and manage them too. We were trying not to be left behind if possible and also improve internal processes.

We were not sure on how to move forward and after a “Discovery” phase with BeHappy, they recommended us to invest in e-commerce on one hand and also include a cloud-based management tool internally to manage relations with our providers and clients.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

This was our first online project. We wanted to create an offline as well as an online or digital transformation process of a family business with two decades of experience. BeHappy tried to facilitate this process making understand that we needed to create a digital strategy to support the company as a whole.

 

What is the team dynamic?

We always had an assigned project manager that we communicated with. He was our point-of-contact with BeHappy. When they started to design our logo and corporate branding we were also working with Carlos, their Art Director that did an amazing job once the business plan had been analyzed together with our current situation and objectives.

 

How did you come to work with BeHappy?

They were awarded with “Best company with a recent creation” in 2016. We went to the event and we exchanged our business cards and did some networking afterwards. Whe we decided to start our online business we got in touch with them to tell them about our offer and we enjoyed their understanding of our business needs and the clear way they could present this. We had two other interesting options but we decided to go with BeHappy because they give off lots of trust and confidence.  

 

How much have you invested with BeHappy?

We’ve invested in the range of $10-50K in this collaboration with BeHappy.

 

What is the status of this engagement?

It has been completed. But we continue working on maintenance and improvements.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Internally, we have saved lots of time that was wasted preparing reports, meetings that were not productive sometimes, and now from our mobile apps we could see everything at all times.

Now clients can make orders at any time and we are able to send them the status of the order in real time. This was all previously done by phone and the timelines and capacity were much more limited. I notice that people happier and clients appreciate the ability to interact with us at any time.

 

How did BeHappy perform from a project management standpoint?

Our meetings were through Skype or in person. They used Trello to inform our progress, Dropbox for materials and archives, RealTimeBoard to share ideas and Invision for design.

 

What did you find most impressive about BeHappy?

They were able to adapt to our needs very well. They don’t make you buy everything but they guide you through what you what is really valuable to your company after analyzing your case. I was impressed with how before and after the Discovery phase, the idea of the project changed radically and I wouldn’t have been able to do that alone.

 

Are there any areas BeHappy could improve?

The process was pleasant overall. There are always areas for improvement but in general the whole process was good.

 

Any recommendations for future clients of BeHappy?

I’ve heard other clients were having difficulties understanding the initial Discovery sprint. I would recommend this step. This is where ideas really take form and you can define the strategy to do the rest of the project.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Grupo WDI is a marketing agency with a focus in trade marketing. We provide comprehensive services focused on points of sale and we work for multinationals in the sector. I’m the co-CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BeHappy?

They helped us re-orient or redesign our own website. We realized the previous site was very creative and conceptual site but it wasn’t helping us reach our set objective, which was to capture. We realized users and prospective leads left our site because they found too much information that wasn’t well structured. The focus was not sufficiently clear or “professional” that the sector was probably expecting from us. BeHappy helped us with the consulting, strategy and design.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I believe they’ve assigned around 4-5 resources. We worked with Javier, one of their project managers and used Trello for communications, but we’re not aware of who was behind these communications.  

How much have you invested with BeHappy?

We have invested around $5,000.

What is the status of the engagement?

We started working with them in May and it is an ongoing collaboration.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

 

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

The project has been recently installed and we don't have any metrics available to share at this point, but we are sure that the results will be incredible.

How did BeHappy perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management was very well structured and organized. It was very professional and it was easy for us. We used Trello and Skype mainly.

What did you find most impressive about BeHappy?

The way they guided us to gather the information we needed in order to define the strategy. They asked us to do questionnaires with our own clients to learn their opinion and what they appreciated or valued the most about our services to be able to feature the most relevant information on our web page. Also, Javier’s vision, focus on the sector and clarity on the approach to this project stood out.

Are there any areas BeHappy could improve?

Not necessarily an area for improvement for a habit that could be improved. They are very familiarized with Trello and I’ve been the communications person with this tool. It has been challenging at times as a new user to use this tool day to day, exclusively.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the CEO of an audio software company. We develop our own audio algorithms and license them to third-parties. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BeHappy?

We are currently working on a new product, and we selected BeHappy to help us with service design and UX testing. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

BeHappy designed a service blueprint and a complete UX process. We had contact with 2 people from their team over a 3- to 4-week period. We used a real-time board and other online tools.

Our product—an online platform related to voice synthesis that allows users to upload content—is internal and still in the R&D phase. I can’t disclose more information at this time.

How did you come to work with BeHappy?

They contacted us several months ago. At that time, we didn’t require their services, but, when we started this project, we reached out to their team.

How much have you invested with BeHappy?

The cost of their work was around €5,000 [$5,700].

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with BeHappy in May 2017. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

The main outcome was learning about new methodologies for service design. Our company specializes in audio software, so we have technical rather than visual expertise. BeHappy’s UX methodologies were valuable for us. They met all planned objectives related to the service design, deliverables, and schedule.

How did BeHappy perform from a project management standpoint?

They strictly followed our guidelines for deliverables and deadlines, and I was pleased with their scheduling. We used Trello for project management. Our company uses a different tool internally. We had no major problems.

What did you find most impressive about BeHappy?

I wasn’t used to working and paying on a weekly basis. BeHappy defined a work plan with goals for each week, and we paid accordingly. It seemed strange to pay before seeing any results, based on my experience with software development.

Are there any areas BeHappy could improve?

The cost scaled according to the duration, which has forced us to limit the collaboration to a certain number of weeks and to dedicate more time to attending to BeHappy’s team. This affected our daily work internally. Otherwise, the goals were met according to our work plan.

Four developers were involved and they have done a complete job. They played the role of CTOs. BeHappyCo developed all of the back-office coding, and they also designed and coded the frontend. They have looked for solutions to the problems that existed, such as figuring a way to integrate software of other companies with advanced search tools, etc. The developers solved problems that required difficult technical solutions.

How did you come to work with BeHappy?

They were recommended to us when the company was founded. We did a small job with them. It was very simple and easy, and it was completed in the time and form that was desired. Now, we continue doing bigger projects with BeHappyCo.

How much have you invested in BeHappy?

We paid between $70,000 and $100,000 for their services.

What is the status of the engagement?

We continued working with them, although not as much as in the starting period. They had a more intense participation back then.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

All results were satisfactory, and we are happy with how things have turned out. Sometimes, when we asked for certain functionalities, they revised them and we ended up doing the complete opposite. They adapt very well to the changes in strategy and direction.

How did BeHappy perform from a project management standpoint?

We always worked mainly with Trello. Both companies tried to be organized in terms of project management. We make a lot of orders, although small, and processes need to be followed. This was the only external tool we’ve used. They have one point person, who is very good. That also helps avoid adding more people to the project.

What did you find most impressive about BeHappy?

There were a couple of interesting things. First, they provide a complete service because they work from the frontend as well as the backend perspective. They dominate various coding languages, but at the same time, they can do design work, which makes them important. There are some cases at the end that you have to hire experts and then they need to be in sync between them. In those cases, we only need one interpreter to coordinates everything.

The second interesting characteristic is that they never lose the project’s vision. They always have a complete vision and when coding orders are made, they act as a filter. They let us know if there could be problems if they made another functionality, and they explain things clearly. They have a complete vision, to the point that they know about it more than we do.

Are there any areas BeHappy could improve?

Generally, they’re very good. There are things that can be improved like anyone else, but not that many.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

We have basically saved lots of time in our processes. For example, we previously lost a lot in terms of documentation or managing fees. Now, it's almost all done automatically. It also allows us to generate reports, which are useful to know the status of the company and the projects. Clients are contacting us less because they have everything on the web and they are happy in general.
