More than product/pricing: delivery plays a big role in your success. Delivery can be the deciding factor between you and the competitor. Should delivery options fail to appeal to consumers, sales can be lost. We will discuss how to optimize your website and make sure you are open for business!
How do combined logistics efforts afford e-retailers the ability to progress their business by exceeding customer expectations? By providing a seamless customer experience and working on innovative delivery solutions focused on personalisation and prediction that ensure prosperous accounts.
Consumers are generally dissatisfied with the quality and flexibility of delivery. Lack of standards for identification, labelling and data sharing in delivery execution is the main cause. This workshop will show how we are fixing that now as we cover real life implementations of delivery standards.
Transform your customers' experience with flexible and accurate delivery. Increase reorder rate, grow your brand and create customer loyalty by delivering to the right place, everywhere, everytime.
Ship from store, same day delivery, last mile, first mile, collected returns... How can I industrialize and run these services at a massive scale, for ALL my customers, ALL my stores and ALL my carriers? And how can I measure their impact on conversion, customer satisfaction and repeat business?
