Retailers today can capture a wealth of data—including detailed customer transaction histories—but most don’t have the analytics capabilities required to make the most of that information. Success requires sifting through data to discern what the numbers really mean, and then translating that understanding into tangible actions that improve the company’s financial and operational performance.

Across all retail segments, promotions are one of the most effective tools for driving traffic and improving margins. Collexe’s approach uses rigorous analytics to give a more granular picture of the performance of past events and then applies those insights to create more effective promotions for the future.

The emergence of big data and advanced analytical tools means that retailers can capture even greater value from such information, provided they know how to analyze and interpret it. Big data can explain the who, what, when, where, why, and how of retailing.

Create More Multi-Buyers.

One of the best ways to improve your retention is to turn your one-time-buyers into “multis”.

To do this, analyze the behavior of your current multi buyers. Get customer feedback. Customers follow standard purchase behavior. You may find that most multi-buyers execute their second purchase at a standard average time after their initial purchase. The technical term for this is the “second purchase latency”.

The more you know about your customers, the more you can tailor your approach to each individual.

We have the solution to let you view a customer’s purchase history so that you can determine what kind of offer will be most appealing to each individual and increase relevancy, which will keep your brand on your customers’ minds.

Let’s say you want to follow-up on the customers who showed their interest in your product, but haven’t bought anything from you. Identify ways to convert their interest into an actual purchase by offering them special discounts or some additional value to your product.

You can create a list of all open sales activities and compare that with a list of all contacts that are subscribed to your newsletter. The result is a list of contacts that are interested in your product but so far, have not initiated a sale.
