- Connecting data and channels
- Improving efficiency with automation
- Optimizing results throughout the customer journey
Previously using a renowned marketing cloud, Easyparapharmacie still lacked many technical resources critical for executing and optimizing their marketing. The time and cost involved weren’t translating into the returns the company had hoped for. Very few automations were possible, which meant that the team was spending a great deal of time performing manual tasks on a regular basis. Lastly, the segmentation was not optimized, which meant reduced visibility into the performance of CRM activities as well as an inability to understand clients on a one-to-one basis, or as a cohort.
— Gaëlle Dauger,
Managing Director at Easyparapharmacie
“Thanks to its ergonomic solutions and a user-friendly approach, we have seen precious gains in time and can communicate 360° globally. For example, we can easily integrate digital communications and responsive emails. The Emarsys platform makes our life easier, which wasn’t the case with our previous vendors.”
Easyparapharmacie onboarded Emarsys, integrating all channels (email, website, social media, and SMS) into a single platform, eliminating the need to navigate between different tools.
With data and channels connected, Emarsys enabled Easypharmacie to build a complete view of customers, and use lifecycle analytics, segmentation, and automation to personalize email as well as website visits with targeted content like product recommendations.
“We use product affinity reporting and share it with our laboratory partners. It allows us to direct them more effectively in the strategies we are rolling out. We also use lifecycle analytics to better understand our audience and design our loyalty program. Emarsys will be utilized for our loyalty project in particular.”
Automating based on critical lifecycle stages
Automated journeys generated 5X more revenue by focusing on critical lifecycle stages, such as welcoming new subscribers (led to +101% conversions of leads to active customers) and winning back defecting and inactive customers (55% of defecting clients became active).
Maximizing revenue with relevant interactions
Abandoned browse and cart programs were also activated, driving automation-generated revenue up to 15% (versus 3% with their previous vendor).
Personalization in ad-hoc campaigns
Ad-hoc campaigns improved revenue by +45% through improved personalization.
Advanced segmentation optimizes performance
Thanks to the ease of use and advanced segmentation capabilities of the Emarsys platform, the team is able to send twice the number of campaigns to different segments, seeing +125% open rates and +225% click-through rates.
The Magento plug-in provided a reliable connection with strategic e-commerce activities.
By choosing the Emarsys customer engagement platform, Easyparapharmacie now has a consolidated solution to execute omnichannel automation in an easy-to-navigate dashboard. The Marketing team — and the CRM team in particular — is more productive, better aligned to business outcomes, more empowered to engage existing and new customers with improved personalization and loyalty, and better equipped to execute e-commerce campaigns using the integrated Magento plug-in.
“We have great support from Emarsys. Our contacts are very present and available, and helped me define with precision my CRM objectives and roadmap for the year. That’s a level of support I have never had with the previous vendors I worked with.”
