Omnichannel is based on the customer experience being as consistent as possible, in all channels. The pattern is clear: companies that invest in seamless shopping experiences succeed best in the industry. The development is driven by the consumer’s demand for an intertwined, pleasant and personal interaction with the brand, throughout the customer journey. They expect each interaction to smoothly lead to the next, even if it takes place on a new platform. Read about how Sandqvist, with the help of Rule and an interconnection of existing systems in physical stores and online, improved the customer experience and revenue with omnichannel.

Challenge

Sandqvist was founded in 2004 in Sweden. The Scandinavian roots form the basis for what the company values ​​most; sustainability and care for the environment, qualitative materials and carefully thought-out Scandinavian design. As the company, the customer club and the sales channels grew, Sandqvist realized the need for an omnichannel strategy – a seamless interplay between physical and digital commerce. Sandqvist’s vision was to deliver a unified branding experience to customers – at every point of contact, regardless of channel.

Solution

As omnichannel customers tend to shop more online and for larger amounts, Sandqvist realized the potential with a digitally intertwined investment. By connecting their existing e-commerce platform Centra, the complete solution for smart digital communication: Rule and the cloud-based POS system Sitoo, you could start using deep customer insights. To improve the shopping experience, build customer loyalty and increase online sales, Sandqvist’s solution was to implement a sustainable omnichannel strategy.

The omnichannel vision was to create collective customer cards, where all the customer’s interactions with the company were stored in one system. By combining product and order insights retrieved onsite with data from the physical store, Sandqvist hoped to be able to deliver a seamless and personalized branding experience.
