AgilOne, the cloud-based predictive marketing company, today announced that 100% Pure, an organic cosmetics company that is the only brand that uses fruit dyes to color its makeup, has decided to leverage the AgilOne platform to retain and delight customers. 100% Pure is growing at a rapid pace, and AgilOne Enterprise Edition will help the cosmetics retailer put effective VIP, welcome, shopping cart abandonment and replenishment campaigns in place.
100% Pure started as an eCommerce business, and because of the growing demand for its all-natural cosmetics line, the company has also opened multiple brick-and-mortar stores with plans for continued expansion in 2014. Having both an online and physical store presence means that the cosmetics retailer also needs to be conscious to capture a 360-degree snapshot of its customers shopping via both channels.
“We have a tremendous growth opportunity in front of us right now, and customer retention is a huge priority,” said Ric Kostick, CEO of 100% Pure. “With AgilOne, we will have the ability to easily understand customer data so that we can create tailored campaigns based on who buys what, when and from which channels. 100% Pure takes great care in developing all-natural cosmetics that customers love, and we knew it was time to apply the same care to our marketing efforts.”
The cosmetics retailer has a small internal team, so it really needed data-driven marketing platform that was easy to use. AgilOne Enterprise is designed for the everyday marketer, so a data science background is not necessary to send highly relevant campaigns. In addition, the AgilOne platform delivers Fortune 100-level predictive analytics-powered marketing at a very affordable price for SMB retailers like 100% Pure.
“AgilOne’s advanced predictive algorithms will let 100% Pure predict customer behavior and optimize overall customer responses,” said Omer Artun, CEO of AgilOne. “The typical retailer experiences 300 percent higher margins and retains 20 percent more customers with AgilOne Enterprise, and we look forward to seeing 100% Pure make better predictions and create long-term, profitable customer relationships.”
