What we do
WisePlum is a user-friendly customer experience insights platform for retailers. It answers one critical question “Where should I invest in the customer experience to increase sales and grow market share?” No advanced analytics or market research training needed. Within seconds, business leaders can see which specific negative customer experiences, both in-store and online, drive business performance.
Three key takeaways attendees will receive from our Blended Commerce Imperative Session with Ace Hardware & Spud.ca:
1. Learn about what Canadian consumers expect from retailers – regardless of how they buy.
2. What are the top areas of friction for consumers when they buy and how are retailers like Ace and Spud innovating for service excellence?
3. How have consumer expectations changed over time and how do you see that changing in the future?
The bulk of what we do is solving strategic problems like acquisition, retention, engagement, product design, and process optimization for Global 1000 companies. So far we've tackled loyalty program design, designed a new insurance product, created and marketed a new pricing strategy for an IT company, and developed a new compensation plan for a sales team, among other price/product/process/promotion challenges spanning industries. In terms of what industries and projects, it boils down to this: if there is a specific behavior you are looking to create or influence, there is a possibility we may be able to help you.
We are typically hired by a CMO or his/her senior leadership executives ready to tackle challenges with our expertise; but we've also received work from the CEO, COO, and members of the Board with an intuition that "there has to be a better way." A CEO once called saying "it's like I've been banging my head on the same wall for five years. There must be a different approach." There is, and we helped. We like helping big companies, but we will also work with smaller companies too – if you have an interesting problem and/or interesting people passionate about the possibilities of behavioral science, let's see what we can do.
