Deliver a world-class customer experience

Collect, analyze and act on your data to deliver the experience your retail & ecommerce customers deserve.

Better customer experience, better business

The customer experience is about the interactions a customer has with your brand across every channel – in-store, online, via an app, over chat, etc. In retail and ecommerce creating a seamless, omni-channel experience becomes even more important as the line between online and offline has blurred. Customers expect a personalized and relevant customer experience and brands that deliver this can expect an increase in engagement, loyalty and profitability.

Leverage your data to get a 360° customer view

With a Customer Data Platform (CDP), you can centralize data from different sources (website, email, social media, apps, web shop purchases, in-store purchases, plus more) and get a single customer view. Below are a few examples of what kind of data you can store in a CDP, so you get a taste of what is possible.
Group
Personal data

Name, email, address, phone number, and more.

Tablet
Behavior

What is the customer used to purchase, when and where? E.g. products, services, webshop, in-store, webrooming or showrooming.

Home
Demographic data

Age, gender and family status.

Purchase

What category, model and size does the customer buy? Does the customer only buy for herself or for others (like her kids) too? Is the customer a returning customer? 

Heart
Engagement data

How loyal is the customer? Does he or she like your brand on social media, share articles and comment on news? Have they signed up for your email list or membership?

Cart#2
In-store data

In which store does the customer make purchases most frequently? Does the customer purchase different products/services online and in-store?

Turn customer insights into action

Insights without action means no added business value. That’s why this is the most crucial step: to turn data into a better and more profitable customer experience. This is one of the advantages of a CDP; the unified data directly becomes available to other systems such as an ERP, PoS, CMS, CRM, advertising platforms and a marketing automation system. This means that you are able to act instantly, based on the insights you get.

Make data-informed decisions

There has never been more options available to customers than today. To stand above the crowd of competitors, and deliver customer value and a relevant customer experience, you need to leverage and act on your data. This is how you get to know your customers, both online and offline, and are able to deliver the right communication and offer at the right time. This in turn will help you to build loyalty and avoid churn. See our examples below of how to do that. 

Example 1: Increase your conversion rate by making it personal 

If you know what type of products your customer usually buys – for herself, her partner and/or perhaps children – you can be more personal and relevant in your webshop and in-store communication. 

For example, you can set up an automatic email sequence with a unique offer that goes out to all first-time buyers who didn’t make a second purchase within three months. This way, you make sure to engage first-time buyers to purchase again.

By talking to customers based on their personal information, behavior and where they are in the customer journey, they will feel like you’re providing a personal and relevant experience for them. This in turn this can lead to higher engagement and increased profits per customer.

Example 2: Optimize assortment and product availability

By collecting data from different sources, both online and in-store, you get a full 360° customer view. This enables you not only to better understand your customers – but also to optimize your assortment, product availability and offering. 

For most retailers the assortment varies online and offline. Many times, it differs in stores as well. By knowing where your customer most often purchases products and what products she tends to buy, you’re able to inform the customer if the products she wants or needs are available online or in a store nearby. This way you deliver a better customer experience and you don’t lose your customer due to a variation in assortment.

Example 3: Provide aftercare and increase customer lifetime value

Many purchases and products need to be renewed, updated, changed or serviced. If you know what the customer bought, when and how often it needs an update – why not be proactive and remind the customer? 

Offer the right information and/or service to assist them in finding the right solution. For example, if you’re selling lenses you can reach out 2 month before the customer will run out of their current stock and provide an offer with the same set of lenses sent to the same address. The customers will be grateful that you’re helping them to keep track of when it’s time to make a new purchase, plus they don’t need to remember anything about the purchase (the brand, product type, strength of the lens etc).

The customers purchase history and purchase frequency combined with product information, holds value for the customer and profit for you.

Increase customer lifetime value
Boost sales
Build trust
Provide aftercare

Example 4: Increase average spend per customer (with cross-sell and upsell)

What products or services create a natural complement to what you sell today? If you sell furniture and a customer buys a sofa from you, what kind of products or services can you offer as a complement? A rug, pillows or furniture transportation? This is called cross-selling. 

Also, encourage your customers to upgrade their purchase. If you sell tickets to football matches, for example, and the buyer purchases a ticket for one match, then you propose an annual ticket so they can watch all the games of the season. When done right, the customers find great value and you in turn greater profits. 

This is one way of using predictive analysis and it’s enabled when you’ve collected all data in one place (in a CDP). Then you’re able to analyze and act on specific and relevant data, in various scenarios.

Improve the customer experience
Boost profit
Show dedication and care
Build engagement

Example 5: Reduce abandoned shopping cart rates

Have you ever added products to a cart and then closed the page because you got distracted or unsure of the purchase? Abandoned shopping carts are a common problem in e-commerce. On average 3 out of 4 abandon their shopping cart.

If a visitor has come to your website, added items to the shopping cart and then left before finalizing the payment – you want to follow up. You can do this by setting up an automatic email that lists the abandoned products and reminds them of the purchase. 

You can also encourage check out completion with an offer. This can be free delivery or a discount. You can also create a feeling of urgency by mentioning how many products of that category you have left. Reduce abandoned cart rates by setting in place automatic and personal campaigns that gets triggered based on customers behavior.
