CUSTOMER AND OPERATIONS
Our team of practitioners bring decades of learnings internationally in delivering operational and customer programs client side that are shaped through simplicity and focus on what is really important for the business and for its customers.
We start with our Triple Play philosophy and apply the lens of culture, customer & commercials across service delivery channels whether that be digital, voice or face to face. Our practical experience allows us to quickly identify the points of friction through simple customer and operational journey mapping.
The difference is – we don’t stop there. We believe the most important moments in service delivery are the ones that separate the good from the great – we truly hone in on the Moments That Matter and how they have been designed and are being executed.
We believe that the right partnerships, whether it be technology or service delivery partners, can enhance businesses by bringing more skills diversity into an organisation. However, far too often we have seen organisations working in ways that don’t capitalise on the opportunities. We bring years of experience and best practice methodologies that help businesses get the most out of their partners and, in doing so, themselves.
We focus on delivering the Moments That Matter, simplifying experiences and working with you and your partners to embed and execute consistently and effectively.
Our Services Include:
Operational health checks, transformation and change programs
Digital and technology solutions
Process workflows and mapping
Digital innovation and migration

The Bridge Partnering Review
The Bridge Partnering Review Program
The Bridge has extensive experience in working with complex businesses supported by strategic partnerships, which has resulted in operational expertise in establishing and setting up meaningful and successful relationships, underpinned by trust, support and governance.
Our Partnering Review Program is designed to measure the effectiveness of an operational/ strategic partnership to assess the core elements which make up a best practice partnership.
We believe that the right partnerships, whether it be technology or service delivery partners, can enhance businesses by bringing more skills diversity into an organisation.
We benchmark partnerships against our best practice framework on common partnering strengths and pitfalls. We act as an independent voice between you and your partner to provide advice on how to take the partnership from good to great and get the best out of both organisations.
