At the newly launched Telia concept store at Kongahälla Center, Sweden, the ambition is to make the physical store space part of the digital experience. The concept store is first of its kind and stands out with its progressive and innovative store design. In the store, it’s not the products that are in focus, but the interactions that take place within the space.
Besides its regular service offerings, the store also runs a mobile school for students and hosts workshops for senior citizens, everything to share inspiration and knowledge about the digital landscape. The store has been very well received since the launch in March 2019. And only 9 months after the opening, it was awarded best performing Telia store in Sweden.
An important part of its success is the provision of a seamless customer experience. With a high-tech interior and new working methods, Telia sets a modern standard for meeting the customer where they are. A key factor for its success is the ability to guide customers through their journey with Qmatic solutions.
Upon entering the store, customers are instantly greeted by Qmatic’s self-service kiosk along with integrated LED displays that present the latest called number. Everything is carefully setup to keep the customers informed on who’s next in line no matter where in the store they are. Meanwhile, customers can walk around and try different products, interact with staff, have a coffee and experience every aspect of the latest technology.
With the Connect Agent app from Qmatic, Telia’s staff members have become more dynamic. The app makes it easier for staff to engage with customers more directly and relationally which is an important aspect of Telia’s working method.Through the Connect Agent app, staff and management can manage walk in visits while maintaining awareness of waiting customers, customers being served and upcoming appointments.
Maria Torres says “We can see how long a customer has been waiting and what type of inquiry the customer has. The system is easy to work with and understand, and it gives us an important structure that is crucial for us to have in the store.” They can also tap into useful business analytics, such as delivered services and outcomes.
The launch of Telia’s concept store with cashier-less checkouts, digital product interactions, and a dynamic work force demonstrates how intertwining the physical space with the digital, creates a state-of-the-art customer experience together with Qmatic. With up-to-date journey insights, it provides a better overview of how the company is satisfying customer and employee needs, making it easier for staff to improve its service.
