Bringing harmony to the brand
We worked with ASICS’ Global HQ and key regions (US, Japan, Europe & Australia) to harmonise the brand’s positioning and bring consistency to the customer experience and product positioning.
This required us to act as strategic digital advisers across brand, creative and technical strategy and implementation. We led a consortium of global partners to deliver a multi-channel, multi-national direct to market blueprint for the ASICS brand.
After initial consultation to create a technical framework, we began to build the solution on the hybris eCommerce platform. This was then configured using hybris eCommerce accelerators with local integration hubs, templates and merchandising services.
We also devised and managed an optimisation programme using a combination of web analytics, expert analysis, competitor monitoring and regional consultation. We ran 7 optimisation phases over 21 sprints, incorporating 1,000 tickets and stories across 4 regions, 8 sites and 5 languages.
The silent salesman
Retail technologies which make bespoke selections about products have become increasingly important to the sports industry. So we created a ‘silent salesman’: an in-store interactive tool that enabled shoppers to find their perfect shoe.
Based upon insights into shopper need states and potential barriers to interaction, our solution was a tablet that interfaces with a large screen display, equipped with motion tracking cameras and integrated to the full commerce solution. This encouraged customers to engage with the experience and learn more about the products available, personalised to their needs.
The sites have been rolled out across the world, including Japan, USA, UK, Australia and Germany. And the results have been superb, including:
27% uplift in conversions
11% uplift in revenue
10% uplift in transactions
We counted very much on AmazeRealise’s experience for the governance of complex projects with significant politics to ensure the success of this one. I was thrilled to be working with a team that puts research and conceptual exploration at the heart of its professional practice.
