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.

Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are: Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS) Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.
