Looking to increase your conversion rates is a key driver for many online retailers; the higher proportion of your on-site visitors you can get to purchase your goods, the better the profitability of your website. So how do many online retailers achieve this? Notably successful players including the likes of, Tesco and all employ Locayta Product Recommendations to increase their conversion rates and the results speak for themselves. Here’s what they had to say…


Mark Wakeley commented, “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.”


Chris Griffin says, “Locayta offered the perfect combination of tools to control our search and merchandising. Their technology delivers the same high grade performance regardless of which country the site is operating in. We have experienced some real wins – our merchandising is much more effective and easy to manage, plus the system has undoubtedly driven revenue. The ability to maintain superior search and category performance on a totally multi-lingual basis has generated phenomenal, if not unprecedented success for us. Our international e-commerce strategy has experienced four figure growth. We’re now aiming to roll out Freestyle Merchandising to eight further international sites in the next few months.”

Catherine Turner also said, “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. Compared with other systems Locayta’s dashboard is simple to use and enables us to do that at the touch of a button.”
