Grocery eCommerce personalization with AisleOneTM on the Mercatus platform, empowering grocery retailers to deliver on personalization, 1-to-1 online grocery shopping experiences their customers are looking for.

Personalization is crucial to satisfy today’s consumer. And today, effective personalization means more than simply knowing a customer’s name.

A survey by Pure360 found that only 8% of respondents said they’d be encouraged to engage with a brand merely because it addressed them by their first name. This is supported by research from Infosys, which revealed that 31% of survey respondents wanted their shopping experience to be far more personalized. Of those who’d experienced personalization, 86% said it had some impact on their purchasing behaviour. Numerous other studies confirm that personalization drives impulse and repeat purchases and solidifies long-term customer relationships.

And now, with AisleOne™ on the Mercatus platform, grocery retailers can serve up the personalized, 1-to-1 online grocery shopping experiences their customers are looking for.
