With e-satisfaction.com and after collecting customer feedback for 8 months, itrend.gr identified that customers were experiencing some malfunctions in product categories section while browsing from desktop as well as from their mobile devices. itrend.gr also received several customer comments regarding products that were out of stock, courier service provider and the tracking of their order.
Therefore, itrend’s objective was to optimize their website according to customers feedback and as a result, to create a better customer experience and increase customer’s level of happiness!
How itrend.gr used customer feedback and what changes they made?
itrend.gr monitored and recorded customer’s feedback and comments in specific metrics, such as general satisfaction, easiness of use, availability of products, feeling secure to buy etc. According to the feedback in these metrics they designed and proceeded with the following optimizations:
- While consumers were navigating, their feedback and comments indicated that they faced some difficulties in finding a specific product. For that reason, itrend.gr has created a new structure in their website, making possible and easier to combine search filters. In general, search filters were re-designed to be simple and adaptable to any device (desktop, mobile, tablet etc.) with the aim of facilitating navigation throughout their website.
- They made the tracking process easier by notifying customers via SMS but also, by giving them the opportunity to monitor their order online.
- They inserted bigger product photos and they used more photos per product, to improve rates on the product presentation metric.
- Low ratings were observed on product availability. When a product was temporarily out of stock, it continued to appear on their website. Now, the out of stock label appears in these specific products and therefore, customers are informed whether a product is in stock or not and whether they can proceed with their purchase.
What changed after that?
After the completion of the above changes, it was observed that consumers were happier than before, and this was reflected in their feedback and comments!
As you may see in the following graphs there was a change in Customer’s Satisfaction score and in other key metrics, such as site usability, product availability, product variety and product presentation.
Note: The blue column indicates the period when itrend.gr was collecting customer’s feedback to explicitly identify which changes should be made and which elements are of great importance to customers.
