This philosophy, which permeates every corner of the company, is now so ingrained in the OVS culture that the company has coined its own term: the “omni-customer.”
The brand’s goal is to use technology to reach and enable customers wherever and whenever they shop, and to thrill in-store shoppers with eye-popping retail innovations. With Commerce Cloud at the center of its omni-channel strategy, OVS achieved its goal and created a multi-touch experience for customers.
“We want to make shopping easy, cutting edge, and amazing, and that means creating an experience without boundaries.”
OVS has been blazing trails with Commerce Cloud since May 2013. The retailer implemented “click-and-collect” (online ordering with in-store pickup) in 500 locations, right out of the gate. As a result, 40% of customers who buy online and pick up in store spend more when they visit.
OVS has also experienced an 81% increase in site traffic, and a 44% uptick in conversion. Its mobile app has been downloaded more than 125,000 times.
“We decided to work with [Commerce Cloud] because it’s a flexible platform for ecommerce but also because we had common goals for omni-channel,” said Gagliardi.
With Commerce Cloud, OVS is able to manage inventory across channels, leveraging real-time data to ensure the most satisfactory experience.
Digital interfaces enable OVS sales associates to help shoppers view inventory beyond what’s in stock, delivering real value to customers and driving revenue across channels.
The omni-customer focus is a top-down effort at the company, with cloud-based enterprise commerce technologies driving OVS’s renaissance as an omni-channel retail leader.
