[2h30 - 3h00] : KEYNOTE QUADIENT

Description: Click & Collect : how to meet new consumer expectations ? 

As consumers become much more conscious about health and safety, they've changed their habits, preferring to shop online since the health crisis began. This trend has made Click & Collect a priority for customers who want to make their purchases with complete peace of mind. The same is true for shopkeepers looking for alternatives to partially compensate for regular store closures. Faced with stop-and-go situations, retailers have adapted by developing a hybrid model, streamlining the in-store experience and strengthening their e-commerce offering. In this context, it is crucial for retailers to adopt a long-term strategy to meet new consumer expectations. And this holds true whether it's about their online or in-store shopping journey.  The Click & Collect order pick-up experience is becoming a key criterion for customer satisfaction. It is also a major focus for optimising the management of parcel flows, which are growing rapidly. The aim is to free employees from logistical tasks so that they can concentrate on reception, advice and additional sales. Discover innovative trends: Click & Collect Outdoor, Shop in Shop, combined Click & Collect and pick-up point solutions that generate in-store traffic.

How can we help users make choices, and offer the right product to the right customer? Based on what criteria should you choose your marketplace?
Which acquisition or retargeting strategies to make them come back? How to use CRM to optimise engagement and retention and implement effective cross-sell or up-sell strategies? How to use the specificity of marketplaces: the presence of a community, one that is able and willing to invest to get more visibility?
Content creation, forums, chat between users ... The possible levers are numerous, but you still need access to the right tools!
From acquisition to conversion to retention: so many mechanisms to put in place to ensure performance in marketplaces.
