Tealeaf Drives Web Site Optimization for U-Haul

Self-Moving and Self-Storage Leader Uses Tealeaf Customer-Experience-Management Solutions to Increase Online Conversion and Retention

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/19/10 -- Tealeaf® announced today that U-Haul International, Inc., the leader in self-moving and self-storage, is using Tealeaf's Customer Experience Management solutions to optimize its online channels and enhance the shopping experiences of its customers. With the real-time visibility provided by Tealeaf, U-Haul performs behavioral analyses based on actual customer interactions, enabling the Company to quickly resolve obstacles blocking successful conversion or completion of business processes.

U-Haul International's online channels consist primarily of a reservation-scheduling system for rental equipment and a retail store offering self-moving supplies and services. Prior to implementing Tealeaf technology, U-Haul had multiple online channels operating in silos. The Company sought to optimize its online channels with the goal of routing traffic from its brick-and-mortar stores to its Web site. The Company also wanted to simplify online ordering for its customers, so as to increase Web reservations and purchases. With the real-time insights into customer behaviors provided by Tealeaf, U-Haul was able to more seamlessly and efficiently integrate its siloed online channels and thereby improve customers' experiences. The business benefits have been clear -- higher conversion rates, lower costs and greater customer satisfaction.

"While we had an abundance of Web-analytics data, we were still making a lot of decisions based on educated guesswork and anecdotal feedback from our customers," explained David Bozovich, U-Haul International's User Experience specialist. "Now, with Tealeaf's Customer Experience Management software, we're basing our decisions on facts -- the unambiguous behaviors of actual Web site customers. It's now much easier to understand where we need to focus our optimization efforts and how we can make improvements that help satisfy our customers and meet our own business goals."

In addition to gaining 24/7 insights into customer behavior, Tealeaf gives U-Haul the ability to accurately determine specific product pairings most desired by customers. Tasked with accessing multiple Web properties for separate offerings, U-Haul customers were frustrated by a fractured online-ordering environment that required them to place separate individual orders for products and services. U-Haul remedied this issue, consolidating multiple Web sites while using Tealeaf to quantify the impact on customers' experiences. Now U-Haul customers enjoy a streamlined, easy-to-use checkout process with access to all of the Company's products and services.

Tealeaf also has helped U-Haul make the most of its A/B testing around changes to conversion-improvement processes. U-Haul relies on Tealeaf to immediately analyze process changes, roll out new processes and retool and relaunch processes with greater confidence. As a result, the Company realizes significant time and cost savings while helping shepherd customers to new processes more efficiently.

"For a company like U-Haul, which is moving more and more of its customer interactions online, Customer Experience Management brings tremendous value," stated Geoff Galat vice president of worldwide marketing for Tealeaf. "The move to online self-service can bring great benefits in terms of reducing costs and increasing efficiencies, but it also puts a premium on ensuring a satisfying online experience for customers. We're glad to play a part in helping U-Haul make the most of their online channels."

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...

Today traditional IT approaches leverage well-architected compute/networking domains to control what applications can access what data, and how.
