A DIFFERENT APPROACH DRIVING MORE VALUE
BETTER DATA, BETTER EXPERIENCE
The Enrich solution for Crate and Barrel began by expanding the product “vocabulary.” The GroupBy team created new rich product merchandizing data and tagged it to products. These additional product dimensions and “humanized” merchandizing data was then used to fuel the navigation and discovery experiences. The solution allows each shopper to easily build their own navigation by adding and removing product preferences to create the most relevant product selection set for them. The experience allows for near real-time updating of results as shoppers refine their preferences, reducing the wait time for the shopper to see updated and more relevant product options.
SMALL ITERATIONS, BIG IMPACT
The Crate and Barrel and GroupBy teams worked side-by-side with a shared passion of Improving the shopping experience. By closely monitoring layout, design, and merchandizing performance, the teams have been able to quickly identify improvements and new ideas to “test.” The flexibility of the Enrich solution has made it easy to add and update product data and tagging strategies, as well as test new UX elements and preference defaults, continuously improving results. Due to positive initial results, the Crate and Barrel team adopted the solution site-wide.
