OMAHA, (Neb) (PRWEB) August 29, 2014

Lenovo, one of the worlds leading personal technology companies, producing innovative PCs and mobile internet devices, has once again turned to OBI Creative, a research-based, innovation-driven advertising, marketing and communication firm, for its trademarked research process, the OBrien Voice of the Customer (o.VoC).

A global Fortune 500 company, Lenovo selected OBI Creative first, in 2006, when it selected the Omaha agency to conduct an o.VoC in the United States. In April of 2014, Lenovo again turned to OBI to conduct its comprehensive study evaluating the customer journey from the point of researching products through purchase and then to post-order support contacts. In July, Lenovo asked OBI Creative to conduct an additional o.VoC study in Europe, during which time the agency will evaluate all Lenovo channels of sales.

Lenovo has seen tremendous growth and expansion in the PC, smartphone, tablet markets, said Mary Ann OBrien, president and CEO of OBI Creative. We believe that growth is directly connected to the relentless pursuit of an enhanced customer experience. If consumers dont have a great customer experience, they arent likely to show any loyalty to that brand. That is the information we provide our clients so they meet and exceed the expectations of their customers. With the ever present fight for market-share and margin, Lenovo is smart to track the customers journey which will be a key differentiator in determining which brands will remain for years to come.

The Voice of the Customer study looked at the experience or interaction between Lenovo and its customers from the customer perspective. Beginning with the placement of orders, to evaluating the products, packaging, messaging and post-sale communication, returning the product and evaluation of that process, as well as contacting the company to utilize the product or service warranties. Lenovo wanted to know how its customers were treated as well as how they stacked up against their competitors.

The data OBI Creative provided Lenovo during its first VoC in 2006, prompted the company to seek the agencys expertise again in 2014, this time testing its European market.

Lenovo partners with the best when it comes to enhancing our products, services and experience, said Eliijah Degen, World Wide Marketing Strategy & Operations. We consider OBI Creative a strategic powerhouse in the study of the customer experience and the ability to quickly take that rich research and use it to make relevant improvements that todays consumer demands.

In 2004, Lenovo and IBM agreed that Lenovo would acquire IBMs Personal Computing Division making Lenovo the third-largest global PC leader. Today Lenovo is the worlds largest PC vendor and the fourth largest smartphone company.
