WHAT WE DO

What we do

The SEMA4 Customer Experience model delivers bespoke Customer Experience (CX) and Digital Customer Experience (DCX) solutions for the leisure and live entertainment industry.

Working closely with out clients and their customers we undertake a full review of the customer journey from discovery to post-event through a combination of benchmark research, on-site audits and personal interviews. Building a positive customer experience is increasingly regarded as a key element of any customer facing business model. The quality of the journey will determine whether a customer buys your product; whether they return and spend more money; whether they recommend you to others and whether they talk about you positively on social media platforms.

Your brand reputation relies almost exclusively on the judgement of you customers.

How we do it

SEMA4 offers a suite of tools and training specifically developed for the leisure and live entertainment industry.

·    Customer Journey Audits through the SEMA4 MOT “Moments of Truth”

·    Voice of Customer Analysis

·    Customer Journey Mapping

·    Employee Engagement

·    Education, Training and Culture Change

·    Digital Transformation for CX Delivery

When we work with a client our first goal is to discover their CX roadmaps. Using the SEMA4 Customer Experience MOT Audit, we are able to provide an illustration of both the strengths and the weaknesses of the current service and to provide a benchmark for all future customer satisfaction measurement initiatives.

We also listen to the individual customer. Every relationship requires listening, as well as talking. We talk directly to our client’s customers about their dreams, goals, passions, and aspirations enabling us to identify which behaviours will really improve the customer experience in the future.

A key phase of our work centres on customer journey mapping, which we develop through a series of workshops sessions involving staff, and key stakeholders. With these customer journey maps our clients can evolve their businesses from a transactional approach to one that focuses on long term relationships with customers built on respect, consistency and trust.

Finally for each of our clients we develop a bespoke blueprint for CEM implementation and activation and we provide them with a suite of tools for driving and measuring progress.

SOME EXAMPLES OF RECENT PROJECTS

Within the leisure and entertainment industry SEMA4 has carried out a number of projects for UK leading Arenas notably for the SSE Arena, Belfast and the Genting and Barclaycard Arenas in Birmingham. All these Arenas recognise the importance of the customer relationship and have carried out extensive research into their customers’ behaviours, goals and aspirations enabling them to identify how to improve the whole experience for their customers in the future.

The SSE Arena, Belfast recently invested circa £3 million on new seating, improved digital infrastructure and other key initiatives to enhance overall visitor experience. They were one of the first of the small number of UK Arenas to operate a dedicated App and are leading the way in digital transformation of their site to both enhance and measure the customer experience.

SEMA4 was commissioned by Deloitte MCS to carry out a market feasibility study on branded apps for live entertainment venues, specifically multi-function, covered arenas with a total capacity of between 8,000 and 21,000.

Using our extensive background knowledge of the arena industry and her network of contacts across Europe, we carried out a comprehensive industry benchmark study, which included personal interviews with leading figures from the arena business.

The research centred on the actual market need and interest for an arena branded app, the infrastructure required for the implementation of such a product and the financial models for investment and return. The resulting report provided a pan-European study on the application of technology as a potential solution to improving the customer journey, and the opportunity for higher revenues and an increased ROI in the arena industry.

Two of our current clients have recently been nominated for industry leading venue awards.”
