Experience-driven commerce.

Create seamless experiences from discovery to purchase.
 
 
The challenge
 

Driving unrivaled experiences that power sales. 

Successful shopping experiences don’t happen by accident. They occur when you connect with customers on their terms. But presenting the right content at the right time throughout the customer journey is no small feat. Consumers today have access to your brand through more channels and touchpoints than ever before. Whether in-store or online, you need to engage these hyper-connected customers on the channels that matter to them. Perhaps you’ve found yourself saying:

“I need to know what my customers are doing in real time.”
Without the ability to know real-time shopping behaviors, it’s hard to adjust the customer experience in the context of the buying journey. 
 
“I can’t identify my most profitable customers.” 
If you could differentiate between your most loyal customers and those with a high churn rate, you could increase revenue while delivering better offers.

“I’m struggling to gain a holistic view of my customers.” 
Knowing your shoppers requires data integration, along with the ability to identify actionable insights from multichannel data

The solution

Empower your business to build rich commerce experiences.

 
Enterprise-Driven Commerce vs. Experience-Driven Commerce.
Enterprise-driven commerce happens when you fail to put customer needs first. By putting organizational structure and silos ahead of the customer experience, prospects are lost to offers from other brands. A heavy reliance on IT further slows content deployment and commerce changes, making it difficult to keep up with changingcustomer needs.
 
 
 
vs.
Experience-driven commerce
is realized as you meet your customers when and where they want to be met — whether in the store, online, or a combination of the two. Such interactions are possible with data from the channels customers love most. Deep insights into customers’ activities help deliver relevant and engaging experiences ontheir terms.
