New York, NY, April 04, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Charlotte Olympia, luxury shoe and accessory designer has completely overhauled its online presence with the help of the Amplience Adaptive Media Platform (AMP) to revolutionize its online merchandizing.
The Amplience platform enabled a small ecommerce team to create detailed, rich, interactive ecommerce layouts and publish them to the site without technical training.
“Using Amplience we can quickly and easily pull together animated carousels, interactive look books or creative inspirational content within an hour,” said Bruno Oghittu, eCommerce Director at Charlotte Olympia. “In contrast to the week or more it used to take when relying on external designers and coders, this saves our small team both time and expense when it comes to media production. At the same time we’re able to create a far more engaging experience for our customers that matches up to our playful brand image.”
Browsers navigate through the world of Charlotte Olympia from exclusive shop-able campaign imagery to showcase carousels of eye-catching designs and video, with elaborate product categories and listings. Editorial features such as ‘Caught in Charlotte’s Web’ and ‘Made in Italy’ - a short film celebrating the intricate craftsmanship behind the making of a modern classic Paloma, help drive customer engagement.
“We’ve been very pleased with the results,” said Oghittu. “Our feature ‘Who’s wearing Charlotte Olympia,’ for example, has seen average engagement levels of 34 percent, while conversion to product page has been up to 10 percent.”
The new merchandizing capabilities have enabled Charlotte Olympia to collapse the customer journey. Browsers can use a ‘quick view’ of products or add directly to their bag from carousels, video or other editorial layouts. The adaptive templates have also allowed Charlotte Olympia to integrate social channels such as Instagram into the homepage.
The new transactional store adapts to smartphone, tablet and desktop screen sizes and resolutions. The stunning imagery, animations and videos across the site are served ‘on the fly’ by Amplience Dynamic Media. This means that instead of manually creating hundreds of different image variations for different uses on the site and across different channels, images and videos such as Charlotte Olympia’s ‘Made in Italy’ video on the homepage, are dynamically rendered on-demand from one master asset in a size and format appropriate for the requesting device. This approach improves SEO ranking and supports the site’s ability to cope with increased traffic.
“Dynamic Media has transformed the speed at which we can create and deliver rich product content,” commented Oghittu. “Using this solution has saved approximately 85 percent on image and video asset management time and cost. It also has enabled us to deliver campaigns more frequently than we could have done so in the past.”
James Brooke, CEO at Amplience commented: “Charlotte Olympia has been able to reflect its high-end design capabilities and playful brand spirit with stunning imagery and animations and is a great example of how using AMP, retailers are able to create even more engaging and attractive content, while reducing cost.”
