Customers are increasingly researching products and services through multiple channels such as mobile devices, websites and social media, and are also expressing their likes and dislikes on their online experiences through these various channels. Recommendation engines have become a crucial aspect of an online user’s experience.
Recommendation engines harvest real-time and historical data from customers, such as frequency of visits to a web site, pages they have visited, time spent on specific pages, products clicked on, and on purchases made, in order to find relationships between products and services based on the inherent complementary nature of items. All interactions of customers across multiple channels need to be collected and analyzed to deliver an interactive, engaging, convenient and accessible experience. Recommendation engines are shown to deliver a 3-5% revenue uplift and a 30-70% increase in order value per visitor on average.
Recommendation engines built on traditional solutions cannot handle the scope and volume of data cost effectively, nor take advantage of new techniques such as machine learning.
