Coherent Path Unveils World’s Most Intimate Shopping Experience

Coherent Path today introduced the first solution to optimize retail customer engagement around long-term objectives, turning unpredictable, occasional shoppers into strong-spending store loyalists. Finally, retailers can understand the trajectory of customer journeys and deliver the products, offers and experiences, over time, that drive satisfaction, loyalty and customer lifetime value.

Early campaigns using Coherent Path’s patented, cloud-based solution have consistently out-performed top retailers’ own promotions and personalization efforts – with gains ranging from 20 percent to more than 50 percent in response rates as well as revenue.

“We’re turning the convenience, choice and cost advantage of the Internet into the intimacy of the corner store,” said James Glover, the CEO of Coherent Path. “That’s the ideal shopping experience – where owners know who their customers are, what they’ve bought and how to introduce products that will resonate - even if the customers themselves haven’t yet discovered it. That’s the kind of predictive, personalized knowledge that builds loyalty, and long term success.”

This optimal product mix changes for each buyer, and over time. This lifelong ‘journey’ inspires customers to buy more from the same retailer, and in turn, to try new products, often with greater value. Retailers can now promote the products that make them unique – instead of rushing to offer the latest best-selling items that consumers can find elsewhere.

Early customers include major department stores and leaders in entertainment, general merchandise, pharmacy and cosmetics. Campaigns can be delivered through any channel – email, web, mobile, direct mail, even in-store – each with Coherent Path’s unique and proven orientation towards strengthening customer relationships over the long term.

Coherent Path helps retailers see what each customer is most likely to buy, well beyond the next purchase, and how to lead them there. With a patented combination of cloud-based analytics and geometry, Coherent Path represents a fundamental shift away from today’s near-sighted “you-may-also-like” recommendation engines towards an approach that also supports a retailer’s strategic goals for growth and differentiation.

“Our customers value the breadth of products, information and advice available at SkinStore.com,” said Steve Brown, Chief Operating Officer of SkinStore, the leading provider of clinical skin care and luxury spa products. “Coherent Path allows us to better understand each customer’s needs and interests and to deliver personalized offers and experiences that resonate and build trust. As a result, we see increased customer engagement and revenue from Coherent Path-guided campaigns.”

Coherent Path, founded in 2012, recently closed a $6.25 million A-round funding.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their back-end AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT – especially in the connected home and office.

We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.
