SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - June 26, 2014) - LE TOTE, the one of a kind-shopping platform that launched in 2013, continues to evolve in the marketplace and break new ground in the online fashion shopping experience. With the creation and release of the company's new personalization algorithm, women have access to a wider variety of pieces and can essentially customize the service to fully match their personalities -- rather than trying to bend their preferences to the limited options available to them, like with other online fashion services.
Focusing on the enhancement of the customer experience has also allowed LE TOTE to both increase their current customer base and attract new investors, both of which are qualities that will propel the company to success over the next several years.
LE TOTE has evolved significantly as a company since its initial launch in the early months of 2013. The original concept involved allowing people to subscribe to a "tote" of three garments and two accessories they would receive in the mail. This unique subscription service allowed customers to completely update their own wardrobe with a variety of on-trend items for one low monthly price. As the contents of the totes changed on a monthly basis and also varied depending on the individual, no two people ever received quite the same tote.
LE TOTE's mission continues to be the same -- to provide women variety for everyday wear without breaking the bank. However, over the last 6 months the service has evolved into a fully personalized, interactive shopping experience. LE TOTE has created an algorithm, a virtual stylist of sorts, that understands customers based on their measurements, age, location, choice of items they put into their "closet."
Most importantly, the algorithm makes use of all the customer feedback to personalize the customer's experience in a way that no other retailers have been able to match. The algorithm, internally named "Chloe" as an homage to it's very first customer service agent, now styles over 80% of the totes that go out. This has not only allowed the company to focus more heavily on the customer but to really offer her a personalized experience like none other.
Customers provide style and fit feedback in the form of structured data, which is analyzed and used by the recommendation algorithm to select new pieces for each customer. The algorithm analyzes the data to select items that are based on hundreds of different data points for a particular customer.
Ben Lerer of Lerer Hippeau Ventures, one of the company's initial investors, was quoted as saying "LE TOTE brings much-needed innovation to the women's apparel and accessories market" when discussing the new direction that the company has taken over the course of the last six months. He continued by discussing the company's collection of data, and how it was used to build a holistic profile of every one of their customers. This holistic profile is then used to help personalize and enhance the shopping experience, which has gone a long way towards increasing customer satisfaction and retention levels.
As a result, LE TOTE is seeing historically high retention and growth rates. This has also allowed the company to expand its existing user base by 30-40% month after month much more efficiently. LE TOTE believes that Chloe will allow the company to grow significantly without compromising the customer experience.
LE TOTE was founded by Brett Northart and Rakesh Tondon, who wanted to take the offline behavior of swapping and sharing clothes to an online, nationally shared closet. LE TOTE works with brands and designers such as House of Harlow, BB Dakota, LNA, BCBG, and French Connection that offer customers the selection they need to be fashionable every day.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
