Casual collision, dialogue and collective intelligence


I had a short conversation with Maurik Dippel of Circelytics (in Dutch). It is available on YouTube.

The customer experience: why are some processes so slow?

I changed my private bank. As my new bank account’s name was slightly different from the old one, the semi-automatic transfer process was not available. I had to change my IBAN number in the new one with around 40 service providers etc. This was an interesting project that took me a couple of hours.

There were a couple of groups:

🚀  The really fast ones, like Netflix, Spotify and various others. Logi, go to settings, change payment method, transfer 1 cent to the new account, and ready you are.

🚤  A large middle group. Here you can make the arrangement online, but it is a bit tedious. You have to fill in a form with data they already know (like the old account number) which takes some time, but when done you are ready and it is instantly confirmed.

🚇  Slow but ok. Making online changes is not possible. You have to send an e-mail with the request, or phone the service centre.

🐢  Super slow. Example: Car tax department. 1. Please phone the department. 2. Lady on the phone will mail you (not email) a form. 3. Fill in the form and return by mail. Warning: this process can easily take four weeks.

❓  Impossible. There was one (NPO plus) where changing the bak account was not possible. Unfortunately you cannot change your payment settings. Please close your account and open a new one…
