Some examples…

Locayta are currently live with Locayta’s Product Recommendations with many successful eCommerce clients. We’ve gathered some feedback and examples below…


Catherine Turner, eCommerce manager at Boohoo, is currently live with Locayta’s Product Recommendations,  “For us the ability to opt in manually where we need to is the key win,” she says. “Locayta has many automated response functions that can update search results, categories and recommendations – and that’s incredibly useful. But when a new buzz hits the catwalk it’s vital for us to be able to adapt our visual displays and search criteria at a moment’s notice. We can tie our categories and sequencing into a wide variety of trends, colour stories, collections, and special promotions in line with the latest media coverage. For Boohoo it’s all about delivering fast, relevant product placement as well as detailed category and search functionality”.


Mark Wakeley, change manager at Tesco Clothing says, “Until we launched with Locayta our systems just couldn’t achieve what we needed to do. The ability to control product and accessory recommendations makes sure that customers have fast, convenient access to the products they are looking for, ultimately increasing conversion rates and order values. We’re now moving to the full Locayta system. Freestyle Merchandising is easy to use and you receive full support”.
