RichRelevance and CREATETHE GROUP Team Up to Personalize Digital Commerce Experiences Online
Partnership Brings Personalized Product Recommendations to CREATETHE GROUP’s CTS Commerce Platform
San Francisco, CA – June 8, 2010 – RichRelevance®, the leading provider of dynamic e-commerce personalization for the world’s largest retailers, today announced a strategic partnership with CREATETHE GROUP to deliver personalized online experiences. CREATETHE GROUP’s clients include leading brands such as Juicy Couture, David Yurman, Neiman Marcus, Donna Karan, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, La Perla, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta and St John. CREATETHE GROUP’s CTS Platform can now be easily augmented with RichRecs™ personalized product recommendations to engage consumers at key touchpoints, including on-site, advertising and email campaigns. By adding industry-leading dynamic personalization capabilities, marketers can easily measure and achieve a higher sales and conversion rate, as well as boost other important metrics such as page views and time on site.
“Retailers, especially within the luxury segment, have typically relied on personalizing the online experience for customers through manual merchandising and buyers who understand the tastes of their clients,” said Allen Kung, founder and CTO, CREATETHE GROUP. “We are starting to see changes in that approach as consumers become increasingly savvy and brands realize the power of site features like social communities and customized recommendations. RichRelevance is the perfect fit for our clients who want to serve these connected consumers—delivering a powerful technology with proven results via a next generation cloud computing infrastructure. RichRelevance’s ability to serve large-scale enterprises, while still meeting the needs of specialty retailers, provides a confidence level to our clients that is extremely attractive.”
RichRelevance’s enRICH™ personalization engine facilitates competition among more than 40 independent algorithms to deliver the most relevant experience to the shopper. By integrating these capabilities into the dynamic online experience delivered by CREATETHE GROUP’s flexible commerce platform, retailers can now offer a completely personalized, bespoke experience to every site visitor that is entirely customer specific —based on shopper activity and goals as they progress through the site.
RichRelevance currently serves more than 350 million recommendations each day on over 45 of the largest e-commerce sites in the world, with 99.99% uptime and an average response of less than 60 ms. Retailers also retain control over how and when products are featured through the robust merchandiser controls available in the RichRelevance Dashboard. The Dashboard allows merchants to achieve specific business objectives for individual products, inventory levels, brands, categories and page types—and optimizes RichRecs for revenue, conversion and profit.
“Excellent service and superior merchandising are cornerstones of luxury retail experiences,” said Todd Pearson, Chief Customer Officer of RichRelevance. “Now these brands can offer online shoppers the same extraordinary experience that they get in a 5th Avenue store by presenting products that are selected just for them with the skill of a personal shopper. It is an honor to be selected as the personalization partner by CREATETHE GROUP.”
