It is no secret that more and more customers get to online stores for an ever increasing range of products. It happened because of pandemics and lockdown, but it sticks and will be here forever because of easiness, efficiency and control over product availability, time and money.
In online, the customer engagement is completely different from face to face interactions, as brands have almost no control and do not see the client’s reaction in due time. Usually, the retailer learns about customer's dissatisfaction too late, when he or she already bounced and got to a competing online shop, with the easiness of a mouse click. There are no skilled salesmen to rely on and convince the client. So it’s up to smart communication, product availability and seamless buying and delivery experience to convince the customer finalize the sale and come back again.
While many online brands focus on communication and engagement, the most successful ones have a holistic approach to the journeys they provide. The customer’s experience does not end with the shopping basket, but it extends during delivery and post-delivery. It is so because, not so rarely, late or damaged parcels are refused, transforming a successful sale into a significant cost generator with return couriers, product retreatment, claims management or lost customers for good.
From this point of view, logistics and delivery become integral parts of the brand experience and the final step for sales success and customer loyalty. Postis supports marketers to boost their engagement and provides tools for operational excellency, delivery customization, customer interaction and feedback.
