The customer experience
Instantly connect shoppers with your team of product experts
Shoppers at Marks and Spencers are empowered to choose the customer journey that’s right for them. When scrolling through a product page, they receive a small pop-up in the bottom right of their screen of someone on a headset. When they click, they’re given the option of booking taking a virtual 1:1 shopping appointment on the spot, or booking a virtual or in-store appointmentat a time that suits them. Emplifi supports the virtual shopping experience, and Appointedd connects the pre-booked virtual appointments with Emplifi, and in-store appointments with M&S staff.

It shouldn’t matter if you’re online or in store, people should still be able to receive that same level of customer experience wherever they are. Working with Appointedd has enabled us to give our retailers the opportunity to provide exceptional customer journeys”
