Description

A Spanish technology centre based in Barcelona, specialized in applied research & innovation to foster competitiveness of companies, has developed an artificial intelligence platform for marketing personalization based on context-aware recommender systems for eCommerce, retail and tourism sectors. The product is based on an innovative use of big data, artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies. It provides a customized and a unified marketing experience by sending relevant information to the user based on an omnichannel concept. In order to do so, it analyses information about the customer’s digital context: mobile profile, localization, customer-relationship-management interactions, Internet-of-Things devices, wearables or sales history in digital channels. The product has been proved to increase retention rates and therefore the customer lifetime value. It has been evaluated among real users (focus groups, A/B testing), identifying a high degree of relevance in the personalized offers. The precise-targeted recommendations improve conversion rates by 7-15% and overall turnover increases by 15-20%. Additionally, the platform also deploys a dashboard to measure the key performance indicators of the digital strategy and to monitor the return-of-investment. The platform could be integrated with different sources like: digital channels (eCommerce & marketplaces, social media, emailing, user profiles and chat bots), corporate systems (products/services catalogue, customer-relationship-management tools, point-of-sales terminals), external sources (open data initiatives, weather, 3rd party services), Internet-of-Things devices (indoor positioning, beacons, sensors, wearables), mobile context (installed apps, geolocalization, device type, connection routines). Focusing on mobile context, this platform allows to go further to get to know the customer better: motivations (sport, gastronomy, fashion, etc.), behaviour (digital native, when he/she is connected, etc.), consumer contents and typology, interaction with the environment and other users (social media), purchasing power (by the type of device, investment apps in the stock market, etc.). The technology centre is looking for a commercial agreement with technical assistance or a license agreement with an eCommerce or a partner focused on IT services willing to promote the platform. Final customers would be business to customer companies which implement marketing segmentation strategies.

Advantages and innovations

The platform has been developed by merging the use of big data, artificial intelligence and machine learning. It provides a real-time personalized interaction with the customer with relevant information in the offering. It has been proved to improve conversion rates by 7-15% and increase customer lifetime value.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
