Machine learning e-commerce implementation
With more data than ever before, e-commerce companies are choosing to leave the task of forecasting and sifting through data to retrieve valuable insights to machines. Understandably so, because machine learning can be applied to various aspects of your online business. For example, it can be used to boost marketing—think of personalized product suggestions, abandoned cart recovery emails, and lookalike targeting. Although machine learning is a relatively new concept, we’ve been implementing it for years and have actively been involved in applying it for many of our clients. For one client, Metrical, we’ve implemented machine learning to prevent cart abandonment, which has helped end clients make many sales they otherwise would have lost. If you want to lose fewer sales and get ahead of your competition by implementing machine learning in e-commerce, we are here to help.

E-commerce personalization services
Personalized experiences have become the norm. Think about product suggestions based on your previous purchases or music selections based on what you previously listened to. A study found that 77% of consumers have chosen, recommended, or paid more for a brand that provides a personalized service or experience (Evergage, 2016). Moreover, more than half of consumers expect their visit to a website to be adjusted to their personal preferences (Segment, 2017). Providing this personalized experience for your customers not only increases revenue, as customers are likely to spend more, but also increases customer loyalty and retention. In order to achieve this, you need a well-balanced mixture of optimizing both your product offering and customer experience to ultimately keep your customers happy and loyal. We provide you with the instruments, knowledge, and skills to achieve just that. Let us help you transform your e-commerce site into a personalized e-commerce site.
