Monoprix, one of France’s leading retailers, today presented the outcomes of its extended efforts to be more customer-centric. Monoprix CEO Stéphane Maquaire shared the results of the company’s five-year partnership with dunnhumby, the world’s leading customer science company, at the National Retail Federation’s (NRF) BIG Show.
Since 2009, Monoprix has worked with dunnhumby to put the customer at the center of every business decision. This includes specific programs to better understand customers and to serve their wants and needs across Monoprix’s portfolio of 500 stores. Gaining a better understanding of Monoprix customers through shopping habits, price sensitivity, and lifestyles has been the starting point of the collaboration.
Along with dunnhumby France COO Emmanuel Déchelette, Maquaire revealed that Monoprix has learned that rewarding loyal customers results in the greatest profits. The partnership also confirmed that offering free home delivery could be profitable, with Monoprix earning more than €6 million in additional margin on an annual basis by providing the service.
Further results shared at the NRF BIG Show include the outcomes of Monoprix’s customer pricing strategy, findings on price elasticity for price sensitive customers, and details of how Monoprix has maximized returns on its personalized communications with 600,000 customers every month.
“Monoprix has invested five years in learning how to serve its customers better,” said Mr. Maquaire. “Our partnership with dunnhumby has showed us that investment in long-term initiatives yields more revenue than trying to achieve short-term gains. We think attendees at the NRF’s BIG Show will be very interested in seeing how Monoprix has applied data-driven customer insights to create long-term value and larger profits.”
“Using transactional sales data to drive business decisions is nothing new,” said Déchelette. “But it is a common practice that often leads to short-term gains at the expense of long-term benefits. The results of our work with Monoprix that we are sharing will be compelling to any retailer focused on bigger profits that last far longer than a few months.”
The National Retail Federation expects more than 27,500 attendees at the four-day BIG Show at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York. The annual conference and expo attracts the world’s top retailers, introducing the latest in retail innovation and trends that are transforming the industry. In addition to Monoprix and dunnhumby, other influential presenters at this year’s BIG Show include Jack Dorsey, co-founder and Chairman of Twitter and CEO of Square; Terry J. Lundgren, Chairman, President and CEO of Macy’s, and Nordstrom President Blake W. Nordstrom.

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at EMC, will introduce a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organizati...

If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated.

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
