​Third Annual JDA/Centiro Survey Reveals Heightened Consumer Dissatisfaction With Poor Online Shopping Experiences

Nyheter   •   Maj 17, 2017 09:06 CEST

Increase in delivery issues risk alienating customers; however retailers are beginning to reap the rewards of Click & Collect investment

Bracknell, U.K. and Scottsdale, Ariz., May 17, 2017 – More than three quarters (78 per cent) of UK adults would likely switch to an alternative retailer when next shopping for products online if they have a poor ordering experience, according to the third annual JDA/Centiro Customer Pulse 2017 Report conducted by YouGov. This comes at a time when problems with online orders are on the increase: more than half (56 per cent) of the UK adults surveyed had experienced a problem with an online order in the last 12 months, an increase compared to 53 per cent in 2016[1] and 47 per cent in 2015[2]. Of those who had experienced a problem, 42 per cent had experienced late delivery, 37 per cent had missed a delivery despite being at home, 25 per cent never received an item, and 24 per cent received a damaged item.

Retailers continuing to perfect the art of Click & Collect

The research reveals that retailers are addressing the problems customers were previously having with Click & Collect. The number of UK adults that have used Click & Collect in the last 12 months and experienced an issue with the service fell to 43 per cent; down from 45 per cent in 2016, and 47 per cent in 2015. Among those that experienced problems with a Click & Collect order within the last 12 months, 26 per cent cited long waiting times due to a lack of staff (down from 35 per cent in 2016) and 18 per cent said staff had been unable to locate Click & Collect items in store (down from 32 per cent in 2016).

These positive steps are being made at a time when Click & Collect use remains high – with more than half of the UK online shoppers surveyed (54 per cent) stating they had used Click & Collect in the last 12 months. Retailers are also now beginning to realise additional benefits from Click & Collect, with nearly a quarter (23 per cent) of these users stating they had made an additional purchase in-store when picking up a Click & Collect order.

“As the data shows, UK retailers face a challenge on several fronts when it comes to online shopping. Fulfillment and ‘last-mile’ issues continue to hinder retailers’ efforts at a time when consumers are becoming increasingly intolerant of poor service. Today’s shoppers expect retailers to offer a high-level of service across all channels – those retailers that fail to keep up with demand put themselves in serious danger of being left behind,” said Jason Shorrock, vice president, retail strategy EMEA at JDA. “However, it does appear retailers’ continuing investments in Click & Collect are starting to pay off. Almost a third of UK adults made an additional purchase when visiting a store for a Click & Collect item, which demonstrates the new revenue streams that can open up when a customer sets foot in a physical store. In the online age, some might argue that footfall has lost some of the importance it once held, but these figures could signal the start of an about-face.”

Returns remain a retail headache

As reported in CEO Viewpoint 2017: The Transformation of Retail (JDA/PwC), almost three-quarters of global CEOs stated that handling customer returns was impacting on profits[3]. This year’s Customer Pulse study revealed that a third (33 per cent) of UK adults who shop online return up to two non-grocery items a year, and 25 per cent return three or more non-grocery items a year.

The most popular reason for making a return among UK adults was due to items not being what they were expecting (38 per cent). This was followed by the item being faulty (32 per cent) and the fact that they ordered several alternatives with the intention of returning the items they did not want (17 per cent).

“Effectively dealing with returns can’t be ignored. The research shows that for nearly two thirds of consumers, the ease of being able to return items factors into who they shop online with,” said Niklas Hedin, CEO of Centiro. “Retailers need to see returns as another customer touchpoint, and a way to make a positive impression that engenders greater customer loyalty. It will be those retailers that offer a full-circle brand experience that will capture the larger share of customer wallets.”

People ‘getting real’ about delivery charges

With the cost of fulfilling orders being increasingly identified as a pain point by retailers, many of them have started to introduce minimum order thresholds for free delivery. The CEO Viewpoint 2017: The Transformation of Retail (JDA/PwC) revealed that 62 per cent of CEOs plan to raise minimum order thresholds in 2017, up from 39 per cent in 2016. In comparison, the JDA Customer Pulse research reveals that shoppers are adapting to these changing conditions which is encouraging for retailers. Seventy-five per cent of UK adults would be willing to exceed a minimum order value to qualify for free delivery.

Mobile investments set to pay off

The research highlights the fact that a growing number of consumers are embracing mobile as part of the retail experience; nearly half (46 per cent) of UK adults are using mobile devices in stores. 30 per cent of them use mobile devices to check/compare prices, 22 per cent read product/service reviews on a mobile device, and 21 per cent use a mobile device for entertainment while queueing. The research indicates the use of mobile will be central to shoppers’ interactions with retailers in the future. When asked about the technologies they will use to interact with retailers in five years’ time, the most popular was mobile (30 per cent).

“Now is the time for retailers to make difficult decisions if they want to ensure long-term profitability. The days of trying to be ‘all things to all people’ are coming to an end. To get ahead and stay ahead, retailers need to think smart – finding the perfect balance between cost-effectiveness and a great customer experience. For traditional ‘bricks & mortar’ retailers especially, this remains a challenge with the likes of Amazon eroding their market share. However, by developing a deeper understanding of customers and all fulfillment channels, retailers can start to win back customers and revenue,” continued Shorrock.

All figures, unless otherwise stated, are from YouGov Plc. Total sample size was 2,070 UK adults. Fieldwork was undertaken between 29th - 30th December 2016. The surveys were carried out online. The figures have been weighted and are representative of all UK adults (aged 18+).

Centiro committed for a sustainable future

Nyheter   •   Maj 09, 2017 16:12 CEST

In the light of the Global Compact Nordic Network meeting arranged in Gothenburg, Centiro announces it’s well under way to build the ten sustainability principles of UN’s Global Compact program into core operating principles.

“I signed the commitment letter to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in June last year. We soon thereafter adopted global policies to address matters in line with the UN Global Compact principles. This year, our work in these areas are crowned with several ISO certifications to demonstrate that we not only talk, but walk the talk”, says Niklas Hedin, CEO of Centiro.

Companies are increasingly seen to address sustainability issues in several areas, including work environment, respect for human rights, green operations, business ethics and diversity. Legislation and compliance regulation is also working its way, including sharper laws on employer responsibilities for stress and health-related matters in Sweden implemented in 2017 and new reporting requirements on mid-sized companies in EU per the Global Reporting initiative, treading into force 2017–2018.

“There is great demand from leading brands and customers to act in earnest on these issues, and as an example, I’m happy to confirm that all energy used to run our cloud-based customer solutions is not only renewable, most of it is also re-used to heat our office, in addition we are installing solar power to become self-sufficient. We take this seriously in all aspects, and I believe companies acting together as part of advancing society, can be a strong force in shaping the world for the better, which I believe is the spirit of the Global Compact program” Hedin finishes.

Hastighet och kundupplevelse i fokus när Centiro utökar sitt erbjudande

Pressmeddelanden   •   Maj 09, 2017 12:14 CEST

Centiro, ledande leverantör av molntjänster för hantering av leveranser inom e-handel, logistik och industri, lanserar idag Centiro Delivery Options. Modulen möjliggör för handlare på nätet att kunna erbjuda mer dynamiska och skräddarsydda leveranstjänster till sina kunder. Lanseringen sker i en tid då e-handlare alltmer fokuserar på kundupplevelsen från kassan och framåt. En undersökning från Centiro/JDA genomförd av YouGov1 visar att 1 av 3 (32%) online-konsumenter valde en handlare som erbjöd flera leveransalternativ framför en som bara erbjöd ett alternativ, en annan YouGov undersökning2 visar att 6 av 10 (58%) konsumenter överväger att byta handlare om köp-upplevelsen online inte håller måttet.

Niklas Hedin, VD på Centiro: “Vi ser ett ökat fokus på att binda ihop hela kundupplevelsen, inklusive utcheckning och leverans, från vårt arbete med ledande varumärken, där frågor runt leverans och returer har visat sig avgörande för framgång. Konsumenten är obeveklig i sina krav på valfrihet och smidighet, vilket visar sig i JDA/Centiro Customer Pulse rapporterna som genomförs av YouGov i flera länder i Europa, däribland Sverige. Men valfrihet är inte tillräckligt, att erbjuda rätt service för rätt kund är lika avgörande för lojalitet och återkommande försäljning. Centiro Delivery Options låter handlare på nätet segmentera och erbjuda olika nivåer på service och löften för att optimera försäljningen i en tid när förmågan att skaffa, behålla och utveckla kunder är i fokus.”

Modulen lanserades för utvalda kunder under 2016, och nu tittar modeföretaget Zalando på hur man går vidare med Centiro för att öka såväl hastighet som innovationsgrad när det gäller hur leverans och returer erbjuds på deras plattform.

Dr. Jan Bartels, VP Logistics Products, på Zalando säger: “Centiro’s innovativa förhållningssätt och kultur gör dem till en stark partner när vi förbättrar och utvecklar tjänsteerbjudandet till våra kunder. I en tid när vi växer så är det kritiskt att kunna ansluta transportörer och deras tjänster snabbt och erbjuda kunden en personlig och relevant upplevelse. Arbetet med Centiro leder till att vi kan förse våra kunder med större valfrihet och flexibilitet.”

Hedin tillägger: ”Vi tycker det är kul att arbeta med Zalando och hjälpa dem stärka sitt erbjudande till kunder i Europa, där leverans är en självklar del av en modern digital varumärkesupplevelse. Det är ett stort förtroende att som partner få förstärka deras omtalade innovationsförmåga.”
