The challenge

An actionable CDP as a tool for activating data

In the face of an increasingly competitive market for groceries, Maiora needed to improve its personalization efforts to deliver a differentiated customer experience. With multiple customers, Maiora lacked a centralized source of customer data, resulting in missed opportunities to maximize customer LTV and retention. One of Maiora’s biggest challenges was having a centralized space to store the vast amount of customer data they already gather (customers, stores, sales, products, categories, subcategories…)

  • Maiora was looking for a CRM solution to manage their customer base data.
  • They already had a solid identified customer database but needed to centralize it to obtain relevant customer insights to help them boost their loyalty efforts.

The result

  • 360 customer view with cleansed data collected from all possible sources (POS, custo-mer service, e-commerce)
  • Powerful customer insights available to the entire organization
  • Acceleration in decision-making processes thanks to the out-of-the-box retail dash-boards Loyal Guru’s CDP offers
  • Ability to create hundreds of hyper-targeted customer audiences in seconds without the help of IT to boost customer loyalty
  • Ability to launch millions of personalized customer communications (email, SMS, push notifications) in a matter of minutes
  • Maiora wants to strengthen its relationship with Loyal Guru and develop other loyalty functionalities with the help of additional modules
