- Siloed data
- Scaling personalization with a small team
- Disjointed tech stack
- Consistent, cross-channel execution
Before Emarsys, Love, Bonito’s siloed and unintegrated technology stack hampered their ability to provide a quality customer experience. Their ability to personalize digital communications across each stage of the lifecycle was handicapped by tech constraints.
Basic email programs took too much time and resources to for the team to activate and they lacked the customer and marketing analytics to inform strategic decision making.
Their disjointed tech stack also lead to an inability to personalize communications across key customer touchpoints (more than 60% of customers encounter four or more touchpoints with Love, Bonito’s brand before converting). The retailer needed a single platform to support scalability and future growth plans.
