Possibilities of Building Enduring Consumer Journeys

Everyday we persevere to take banking beyond the ordinary. To power our consumers' dreams, increase their security and improve their financial literacy, we launched new initiatives and we continue to test innovative concepts.

Sparsh: Embedding consumer obsession and building distinctive experience for Axis consumers.

Axis Bank has embarked upon a distinctiveness program called "Sparsh" to drive consumer obsession in the Bank. Sparsh is a passion and the aspiration is to become the most consumer obsessed bank in India. This journey is aimed to build consumer experience as a true differentiator for the bank and ultimately drive Net Promotor Score (NPS).

The core credo of Sparsh is "Delight our consumers and fulfill their dreams, through smart banking every day."

Crafting Captivating Experiences

We simplify consumer interactions to build delight across critical moments of truth

  • Reducing consumer friction points, bringing omnichannel portability, and building simple, conversational DIY (do-it-yourself) and assisted journeys
  • Providing transparency of processing status, features and charges, along with proactive support
  • Empowering employees and driving key consumer engagement behaviours

Building Institutional Capabilities to Deliver Distinctive Consumer Experience

We consistently enhance and scale our organisation-wide capabilities to support consumer experience programmes

  • Using analytics and insights across consumer experience and journey metrics
  • Creating multiple forums for continuity of Sparsh practices, including a tech-enabled crowd-sourcing platform to get ideas and suggestions from employees, enabling knowledge-sharing across functions, etc.

Measuring and Acting on Consumer Feedback

Banking with us will always be unique as we uphold consumer experience as a true differentiator

  • Using Net Promoter Score to assess the impact and effectiveness of the programme
  • Ensuring transparency and measurability of Customer Experience Scores at a granular level across the Bank

Create 85k+ Delight Advocates Embodying Sparsh’s STAR Behaviours

We have implemented an organisation wide change management intervention in a bid to institutionalise Sparsh.

  • Define STAR behaviour across roles and functions
  • Embed, monitor, and sustain STAR behaviour in day to day working

We abide by the four tenets of STAR behaviour:

Start by Listening Deeply, Taking Charge, Always Keep Promises and Raise the Bar.
