A well known European online store getting around 11 million website visits per month & a Norwegian online store SWIMS, selling footwear, outerwear, and accessories for men.
Our clients are key figures on the local European E-com markets. The pandemic has contributed to E-business development.
The COVID-19 global E-commerce surge was initially born out of necessity. Online shopping provided a practical alternative as retail locations closed and people stayed in to avoid the virus. In fact global e-commerce rose from 15% of total retail sales in 2019 to 21% in 2021.
However these two clients faced the following challenges:
- Low conversion rates
- Poor user experience with chatbots
- High return rates
- Ineffective recommendations functionality
Inventale has developed CONVIDI, a Conversational Commerce solution. CONVIDI is a personal virtual online assistant that enables sales staff to predict client needs and behavior patterns.
By using machine learning & AI algorithms and efficient interpretation of data, ONVIDI offers advanced personal recommendations for every client. The system enhances communications with clients (direct contact via Live video/audio or live chat) and allows online stores to increase customer loyalty & improve sales performance.
A conversational commerce tool that helps one to:
- Pop-ups to VIP clients initiating communication with an Operator
- Exclusive special offers that stimulate purchases for other people (family offers)
- Loyalty program to increase customer flow in e-shop (individual discounts)
Reduce returns & increase customer service efficiency:
- Clarification of needs vs. product offering
- Smart recommendations based on historical data, search requests, profile data, family members’ profile & purchases by other users with similar interests.
- Guiding through the customer journey and buying process
Improve user experience & customer loyalty:
- Focus on mobile conversion
- Seamless interaction with sales/product expert (operator)
Predict sales likelihood:
- Which customer will buy
- Which landing pages customers come from
- What products are most popular for different user categories
The system is based on neural networks, machine learning and AI-algorithms. The core of the solution are factorization machines (FM) and big data processing methodologies for meaningful recommendations.
- collect, process, and analyze millions of data in just a few minutes;
- estimate parameters under very sparse data and therefore scale to fit large data sets;
- automatically extract critical components from the data set;
- make a forecast based on AI algorithms;
- as a result, provide purposeful recommendations for recommendation systems.
Results and Current Status
Inventale’s team developed a constructor that can be customized to new clients’ requirements.
Today CONVIDI is a beta version of a practical solution for an online business that can solve typical problems in the E-com industry and get loyal customers. This project successfully addressed all the client’s goals and needs, retaining current clients and bringing new ones on board. Our clients improved their KPIs thanks to CONVIDI. As for SWIMS, СONVIDI is at the stage of approbation.
Our clients actively use this system daily, and we get positive feedback from them.
