URW roll out global CX Strategy with Goodays

The company

With over 80 shopping centres across Europe and North America, they strive to remain customer-centric in everything they do. In 2022 their UK centres alone welcomed 52 million visitors through their doors, a number they expect to grow in the coming years.


With increasing options to shop online and a lingering post-covid disconnect for customers, the team wanted to implement a Customer experience management platform that aligned with their customer-centric values. As UK Digital Manager Sheahan Arnott explains, “Customer satisfaction enriches everything we do, and we strive to be the best centres in Europe; therefore, we need a customer experience worthy of this title.”


The challenges

1. Rebuild a strong, emotional bond with customers by listening to their voice

Covid resulted in a total disconnect from customers, so URW wanted to rebuild this connection and create a more emotional bond. They wanted to ensure their customers were really being ‘heard’, understood and offered a personal experience in response.


2. Instil a culture of customer-centricity across the entire business

Teams on the ground often feared feedback, and the brand wanted to change this. URW’s goal was to empower everyone across the business to listen to customers, embrace feedback and become truly customer-centric.

The solution

Goodays enabled URW to implement a system for customers to instantly provide feedback via omnichannel touchpoints, e.g. QR codes placed strategically, ensuring they were visible and inviting to customers. In addition, the Goodays solution enables the Group’s shopping mall’s online reputation on public platforms such as Google My Business or Trip Advisor.


The verbatim captured from this feedback was then used to empower the teams at URW. Equipping them with customer knowledge so they could take action, make quicker, better decisions, and ultimately improve the customer experience.

“Goodays delivered proper project management of a global, multi-centre rollout. And the teams’ responses have been incredible, at almost 100%.”
