Experientia conducted a global benchmark research, collecting best practices and global innovative examples of self-service UX/UI systems, extracting relevant themes and trends. We interviewed 10 experts in architecture, design, food & beverage to gather first hand knowledge on how customer experiences are fueling innovation in the segment, and to understand trends, changing paradigms and crucial concepts around intelligent self-service.


Experientia prioritized the interview insights using affinity mapping and constructed near-future scenarios analyzing different factors affecting UX. Ideation sessions generated new ideas to redefine how brands engage customers with intelligent self-service applications. Experientia designed a self service innovation playbook documenting research insights, design principles and scenario. It comes in a box containing the insights booklet, 
idea cards and impact map for co-creation, to aid collaborative design making.


The self service innovation playbook is now being used as a B2B sales tool to engage clients.
