Case studies

A U.S. wireless retailer which assesses 1,000 locations a month was able to identify that greeting a customer quickly has the potential to drive a 10% increase in conversion to purchase.

By combining their mystery shopping and enterprise feedback management (EFM) programmes onto one platform, a multinational retailer of auto and truck parts aligned their customer experience strategy and increased conversion rates. This resulted in over $500M in incremental revenue annually through performance management and closed loop customer feedback.

A Latin American retail powerhouse, with 800 supermarkets, home improvement department stores and retail stores across Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru and Colombia, increased transactions via their store branded credit card by 300%. We conducted 3,200 Mystery Shopping visits per month across the region and the program is credited with driving the wider use of their store card.
