Opportunity Where You Least Expect It
Success Story: Kiikstart & Grant Thornton Australia
Grant Thornton is a world-leading assurance, tax, and advisory firm.
The way that they were doing business was not resonating with the new business leaders of today. There was a generational change happening within their client base, and they expected different methods of communication and engagement.
Grant Thornton knew they needed to change something to keep their changing client base engaged, but they couldn't quite put their finger on what.
With our help, they were able to identify that the current style of servicing was not adding the level of value their clients were coming to expect.
Kiikstart worked alongside Grant Thornton Australia to define what 'real value' was from their clients perspective and considered their skill gaps, risks and threats. We used an innovative and entrepreneurialism framework to design a new-world service model that was rolled out strategically over 12 months.
Provides personalised strategic insight and guidance for each client
Can translate complex financial concepts into a format that is easily understood by new leaders taking over the business.
Develops quality relationships at key touchpoints throughout the year.
Transforms account managers into mentors, who care as much about the clients business as they do, and who can advise them clearly and concisely when it mattered.
As a result, Grant Thornton was able to achieve greater efficiency in client servicing through smarter use of technology and existing platforms, while providing personalised service specific to the needs of the business. The new workflow ensures higher quality and more regular client engagement.
The business was able to maintain its existing clients while expanding into new markets with a distinctly different approach to educating clients on data, tax, and advisory services. Staff can be more strategic with how they prioritise time resulting in less waste and greater efficiency without compromising client experience.
