Serving the end user as well as possible
Shimano wanted to serve its end users as well as possible and therefore developed the Shimano Service Centers. To serve the cyclist as well as possible, it is necessary to map out the needs of the end user. Shimano currently has more than 1,000 bicycle shops connected to the concept and they want to expand that network. Excap helps to visit more than 400 dealers in twenty countries.
Shimano is a Japanese metal processing company, specialising in the production of, among other things, bicycle parts. What began in 1921 has grown into one of the largest companies in the world. Everyone knows Shimano, they have a strong brand and a solid position in the market.

Absolutely. An online customer shops differently compared to a customer in a physical shop. Online mystery shopping exposes the bottlenecks in your webshop, so that you can improve the online experience. The entire buyer journey is measured, up to and including the return of the purchase.
In a mystery guest research, we go through all the steps of the Customer Journey. At each step we measure how this step contributes to an excellent customer experience. Unique to our method is the ExperienceCapture in which conscious and subconscious emotions are recorded for each step.
Each research consists of Project Management, Briefing, Execution & Reporting. The cost for execution is the biggest part. This cost is influenced by the number of measurements to be performed, the complexity and length of the assignment and the profile of the mystery shopper. > More information
Thanks to the innovative reporting tools and the frequency of the measurements, you gain insight into the results in order to subsequently formulate action-oriented conclusions. Your impact will be: higher customer and employee satisfaction and higher turnover.
The results are brought together in a visual and user-friendly dashboard. The results and progress can therefore be followed live. You can consult the dashboard on desktop, tablet or mobile and that you can export the reports.
Many companies collect more and more data from their customers. This concerns data from their own systems as well as data from external (research) partners. Excap can help to connect these different data sources so that overarching insights arise to realise a final impact.
Every week we publish new insights on Customer Experience and Employee Experience. We find it important to share our own expertise with our network. Or we let excap's ambassadors have their say: satisfied customers with whom we made a real impact.

Our mystery shoppers receive an extensive briefing before the start of their assignment so that they are always well prepared. The number of assignments per mystery shopper is limited in order to guarantee quality. On top, there's an internal control before the delivery of the final results.
