Welcome Report 2015 : Imagine the customer welcome in the digital era

  3. 3. Welcome ReportWelcome Report INTRODUCTION 3 Some commentators predicted that physical stores and customer spaces would die out. Apparently, within a short space of time, everything would be done remotely, from home or the office. It would all be much quicker. Bricks-and-mortar was cumbersome and expensive. It was the past. The future was the screen. It would be the new frontier in merchandising and communication. Physical stores and retailers had much to fear. Today’s new consumers have proved this forecast wrong. Through their habits, they have brought about the best of both worlds: digital and physical, while demanding more attention, more dialogue and better experiences. So how can we rethink the customer welcome and offer this new breed of consumer a better type of hospitality? What connection can we create between the digital and real-world experiences? What story should we tell? How can we engage with the public in these reconfigured spaces? Looking beyond the simple solution of introducing digital into the physical space, this Welcome Report interrogates and analyses changing habits, and defines seven best-practice trends in a rapidly changing sector.

What if these technologies connected the home to the store, to remind us of products missing in our fridge, cupboards and bathroom? The shopping list would become a thing of the past: it would be sent directly via smartphone as soon as you walked into the store. YOUR MUST-SEE FILMS What if cinema listings, personal preferences and items shared on social media were all combined in a kiosk at the cinema entrance, recommending the film you absolutely must see? ULTIMATE PERSONALISATION What if car showrooms personalised their customers’ vehicles by analysing their web stats? The customer would get features to match their lifestyle: a playlist uploaded from their favourite Spotify tracks, a choice of engine suited to the type of driving they do, environmental commitments, etc.

Home and DIY stores could also feature a digital wall of photos of interiors posted on Instagram by their customers and highlight the products used. SAME HOTEL, SAME TASTES? What if a social wall in a hotel lobby displayed in real time the surrounding places most popular among customers on social networks? It could feature Instagram photos, tweets and Facebook posts by the hotel’s guests. The social wall would make it easier for guests staying at the same hotel to meet up.

For economic reasons, purchasing decisions are made for increasingly pragmatic reasons. Consumer loyalty is not free. So, customer service is increasingly being placed at the heart of the buying experience. To reach the standards required by consumers who come from the Internet, with its online after-sales and qualitative customer tracking systems, brands must offer something extra in their physical spaces. 1 in 3consumers say they would be loyal to a brand if they enjoyed an excellent customer experience.

Today, they have entered a new phase by moving outside their business activity. Aiming to be useful to consumers and stand out from the digital world, they are turning their physical spaces into multipurpose destinations where people go not only to shop but also to enjoy the brands’ services. In this way, brands are proving their utility.
