NorthBridge Partners Align with Customer Centricity, Inc.

Helps Integrate Customer Care into a Whole Product Offering 


Boston, Massachusetts, January 13, 2003: NorthBridge Partners today announced it has entered into a strategic alliance with Customer Centricity, Inc. of Hudson, New Hampshire. NorthBridge Partners, a marketing and business consulting firm, offers assessments and analysis to help companies improve the performance of their products and services. The new offerings made possible through its relationship with Customer Centricity will focus on more in-depth analysis and remediation of customer support models to better align these factors with the product strategy and customer need.

“During the course of our work, we often identify product issues related to disconnects between the intended customer experience and the actual experience customers have when using a product,” said Joel Whitman, a founding partner of NorthBridge Partners. “These problems are routinely due to the fact that the customer care model for the product or service was not thought about holistically during the product design. By aligning with Customer Centricity, Northbridge can extend our offerings by allowing companies to remedy this situation. We’ve found that companies which align their product and customer support strategies not only provide higher customer satisfaction, but also are able to develop additional revenue opportunities through the use of cross-selling and up-selling techniques. Once customer support is brought into the product loop, they are better able to represent what their products have to offer.”

Customer Centricity, which was born out of the need to improve customer support organizations, provides consulting and program implementation for customer care groups in high technology industries. The offerings range from customer care and customer relationship management (CRM) assessments to on-site skills training and organization development. The programs are tailored to a company’s specific needs and can be implemented in stages to provide the maximum benefit while minimizing the impact on the team’s resources.

“Partnering with NorthBridge Partners was a natural fit for us,” said Craig Bailey, President and founder of Customer Centricity, Inc. “As we talk with customer care groups and the people on the front-lines dealing with customers, we see the impact of incomplete product planning and execution. These people live with it every day. NorthBridge Partners’ offerings help address the issues by providing advice and guidance further upstream in the organization where it can be worked through organically, rather than dealing with it when problems show up in customer care.”
