EP236: Customer Experience Advice: When Building to Simplicity, It Has to Be Perfect, With Liliana Petrova, CEO/Founder at The Petrova Experience

In this podcast, Liliana Petrova, CEO/Founder at The Petrova Experience, translates her experience as director of customer experience at JetBlue to the health care industry. Her advice is practical and designed to actually work in environments as complex and regulated and driven by safety concerns as the airline industry—and also, coincidentally, health care.

In the past in health care, some have perhaps underestimated the impact of customer experience. But it’s hard to continue to do so in the face of Forrester research showing customer experience drives revenue growth by double digits compared to laggards in markets where there’s competition. Actually, this growth difference is true even in some markets where there’s not much competition. Why? Because when the customer experience is really bad, customers might choose to abandon the service/care altogether and just not return at all, anywhere. And Gartner touting facts such as 89% of companies these days are competing on a customer experience battleground.

But back to today’s conversation. Somewhere in the middle of our chat, Liliana says, “When building to simplicity, it has to be perfect.” I loved it! This is a really simple, if you will, maxim with a lot packed into it that we spend some time unraveling. One spoiler: Good customer experience makes it easy for customers, makes it simple for customers. And second, perfect means perfect from the patient’s or customer’s point of view, not ours.

One of the parts of the conversation I loved was Liliana’s dissection of just the physical space of a typical waiting room from a customer standpoint. I never thought about it before, but that desk that the front office staff usually is sequestered behind? That tall desk with the glass window? It resembles a payday loan place in a bad neighborhood. What’s the subliminal message there?

Liliana wrote a few articles about lobby design, among other topics, by the way; and the links are in the show notes.

I met Liliana at the Pharma CX conference hosted by PanAgora.
