Digital Transformation is a latent reality within Grupo Lar. We use digital technology to improve the life of people within and beyond the organisation and to offer our clients products and experiences of the very highest quality.
Digital transformation has become a key factor in our business model, improving the experience of the client, enhancing operational efficiency, generating new sources of revenue, and providing the flexibility to respond to changes in the market.
In Grupo Lar, all digital innovation projects begin with people. Based on our Xplora programme, we train, motivate and involve all the employees in the company to boost the digital agenda. The moment is now.
This is a research programme undertaken in the shopping centres to trace the journey of the customer, from planning the visit to the identification of all the contact points and the main “Pains & Gains” occurring during that journey. This project began last year with the implementation of the research programme in the Portal de la Marina and Gran Vía de Vigo shopping centres and continued this year in the Ànecblau, As Termas and El Rosal shopping centres. The final programme will be carried out in the Albacenter once it has been renovated.
The main objectives of this research programmes are i) to measure the experience enjoyed by the customer in our shopping centres and to convert these into a destination, ii) to offer a distinctive value proposal, iii) to strengthen the strategic positioning of each asset. The specific objectives of this programme are to identify the key customer archetypes, to map customer experience and to identify the principal “pains and gains”.
