Case Study

Mark Wakeley, change manager at Tesco Clothing, who is live with Locayta Product Recommendations   says:


“Until we launched with Locayta our systems just couldn’t achieve what we needed to do,” he says. “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. We’ve experienced some staff turnover in the past year and Locayta have been quick to respond to the training needs of new people. They take the time to meet with us once a week to look at potential new advances that will tighten our performance further.”

Adrian Spence, Head of eCommerce at Paperchase, is also live with the technology. He says…

“Our products are all about driving newness and offering fresh collections,” he explains. “At Paperchase we’re thinking much more strategically about product recommendations. The ability to automate this process has saved us huge amounts of time. The search and category functions give us complete flexibility to set and change parameters. For us, a focus on prioritising new stock combined with best sellers is generating beneficial results.”
