Delivering on the promise of omnichannel, personalized experiences has proven challenging for most retailers.

Understanding these key industry trends, challenges and consumer preferences through our own research has allowed us to develop strategies and experiences that create brand affinity, product discovery and influence purchases at each stage of the path-to-purchase.

Consumer Packaged Goods

As in retail, the consumer packaged goods industry has not been immune to the challenges presented by the steady move to online and mobile shopping. Transactional data is nonexistent due to CPG products traditionally being sold at retailers or grocers. As more of those same retailers begin selling store-label products, CPG brands are losing out on market share in-store.

We help brands regain establish their direct-to-consumer channel using modern digital approaches like video consultations, subscription commerce and personalization. This also allows us to optimize their CRM program to personalize communications based on consumer data and behaviors.
