  • You know that mobile is a pain point. Your traffic is increasing by leaps and bounds but your conversions are not keeping pace. Couple this with the fact that research has continued to validate that people’s mobile experience directly impacts their propensity to purchase from your other channels, and you have a multi-million dollar problem. If your mobile users are not happy with their mobile experience, you lose $10 MM in mobile revenue. Which, you might say, is not worth worrying about. But what about $200+ MM? If your mobile users aren’t happy on mobile, they won’t shop on your website or in your store. Something has to change…
  • Mobile is a different and unique animal. The usage is different – think about your own behavior, it’s used all of the time and is YOURS. The user is different – they are multi-tasking, they are exploring, they expect ease. And the device itself is drastically different. There is limited real estate to showcase your products, you have to tap to what you want. This is a different playing field.There are no other solutions available in the market today that address the different usage, user and device. You need a technology that is built specifically for mobile.
  • Well, how do you overcome a challenge that massive?We tend to look only at the data associated with our own websiteWe don’t have the tools to interact with or access to that much dataFurthermore, technology does exist that allows us to collect this intelligenceOur proprietary WRE – more accurately makes that match between expression of intent and user experience at a massive scaleWe take your data and wed wide data and user interaction data and combine them in order to create more accurate conclusions about what a consumer intends when they express intent
  • This diagram explains how our services work. First, we only work with customers who already have a mobile site. Our services plug-in to your mobile site. Once live, every time our API is called, it pings our WRE to deliver the more relevant and data optimized experience each and every time. Since our WRE is constantly optimizing using machine learning technology, you can be assured that your content is fresh and relevant to every consumer. We have seen RPV uplifts as high as 40% for our mobile customers.
  • Our cross channel personalization improves user experience by utilizing user profile and past behavior cross-channel (www & mobile) to make recommendations and ranking prioritizations. We validate discovery by tracking usage across channels.
  • Our auto suggest is machine learning search that optimizes to RPV ensuring that your highest performing and most relevant results are shown first thus increasing the likelihood of matching your results with consumer intent. Predictive search is also optimized for performance and decreasing the thumb tapping required to help user find what they want quickly.Mobile challenge: Searchers are impatient and there is limited space to show them what they want. Predictive search helps users find what they want faster50% decrease in characters,and data-driven results pages ensure that only those most relevant products are shown first leading to larger shopping carts and revenue 2X AOV, 40% higher RPV
  • More like this is made for the on-the-go user and transitions users from looking for what want to what they must have. This single-tap navigation is refinement built for mobile.
