Table-Based Journey Modeling

Creating Customer Journeys with SAP Signavio Journey Modeler

Previously, we modeled a design-based Customer Journey (CJ). Let's have a look at how we can create a table-based Customer Journey by using the SAP Signavio Journey Modeler. In contrary to the design-based CJ in the previous lesson, the table-based CJ maintains information about linked process model, customer emotions and other relevant information directly in the Model. This creates a holistic view of the entire Customer Journey with all the associated information. Furthermore, it is also possible to integrate external data sources, such as data from SAP Signavio Process Intelligence, Google DataStudio, or Tableau.

In the following section we will take a look at the individual elements:

Step 1: Define a Persona - Who is the customer?
  1. Create a persona in the dictionary.
    • Give your persona a name and add it in the title section.
    • Add a more detailed description of your persona.
    • Enter the persona's occupation and challenges.
    • If you like, you can upload a custom picture to give your customer a "face", which helps to identify yourself better with the customer.
  2. Add personas from the Dictionary.

    Add a new persona to your Journey by using the search function.

Step 2: Define Steps - What steps does the customer go through during the journey?

In a table-based CJ it is not possible to define a visual trigger as we did in the design-based CJ.  The description of the trigger can be added to the persona or directly in the description of the CJ.

  1. Create the first step of your persona.
    • Use the text panel of the step section to describe what your persona is doing.
    • Outline the goals that should be achieved in this step.
  2. Create more steps.

    What are the next steps in the journey?

  3. Use colors.
    • To distinguish stages, steps, and goals, use different colors to highlight the elements.
    • Use colors for backgrounds, individual steps, or outlines.
  4. Add Images (optional but recommended step).

    Images enrich customer journeys and make them more visual appealing to viewers. Steps which are reflected in a well-chosen image can help to emphasize the core topic of such a customer step, for example, 'Decide on the best option' or 'Try out the new product" .

INTERACTIVITY

Step 3: Define Touchpoints - How does the customer interact with the company?
  1. Define touchpoints.
  2. Add a new section for the touchpoints.
  3. Pick a suitable icon to represent the touchpoint and add a title.
Step 4: Set Emotions - How does the customer feel?
  1. Add the customer's emotion in the sentiment section.
  2. Place the smiley according to the mood of your customer on the lines.

    The graph is automatically generated if you add more smileys.
