Retailer Expands Relationship with Knotice, Now Using Mobile to Streamline Product Delivery
AKRON, Ohio – August 28, 2012 – Knotice, a provider of data management, analytics and digital messaging solutions, is helping American Sale, America’s leading home recreation and holiday store, connect with its customers through a unique SMS program.
Keeping track of installation dates and delivery times can be a hassle for busy people. To better serve its customers, American Sale implemented a new reminder SMS program. Now when a customer makes a purchase from American Sale, they have the option getting of a text alert to remind them of their scheduled product delivery date and time.
Opted-in customers will receive an SMS alert the day before their delivery is scheduled to arrive. In addition, they will receive an alert if their delivery team is running behind schedule, letting them know how many minutes delayed the delivery will be. Customers also have the option of click-to-call to reschedule.
Already using Knotice for email marketing, American Sale decided to add mobile capabilities to its marketing mix to better accommodate its customers.
“Nearly everyone has their mobile phone within arm’s reach, so to better connect with our customers, we turned to Knotice to help us implement a program that would provide them with value, convenience and save them time,” said Rick Septoski, marketing manager at American Sale. “Because Knotice offers a variety of marketing solutions out of a unified data environment, it was easy for us to add mobile to our existing marketing programs.”
American Sale will be using Knotice’s on-demand marketing software as well as Knotice’s agency services to roll out and manage the mobile program.
“Providing real value for the customer is an essential element of a successful SMS program,” said Brian Deagan, co-founder and CEO of Knotice. “Companies like American Sale who do this effectively can deepen customer relationships with mobile programs like reminders, updates, and more.”
