New Feature Will Off er Online Users Relevant Shopping Suggestions
Seattle-August 16, 2007-Destination Lighting recently enhanced their customers’ online experience by adding product recommendations generated by Loomia, an emerging leader in the real-time, behavioral recommendations and personalization space.
“Our goal is to deliver a more personal shopping experience for our customers by helping them discover products that are truly suited to their unique tastes,” said Brian Vallene, Director of eCommerce for Destination Lighting. “As I browse our site with Loomia Recommendations, I see items being suggested that seem uncanny in their relevance. With Loomia’s service, we look forward to increasing our interactivity with users and helping customers find the products they are looking for.”
Loomia’s Recommendation services allow companies like Destination Lighting to turn visitors into engaged viewers and active buyers. Loomia recommendations are created from customers’ past and present shopping behaviors, matched against the patterns of other users with similar product tastes. These preferences will be reflected throughout DestinationLighting.com, initially as a sidebar that reads, “You may also like” with a relevant product listing.
“With Loomia Recommendations, Destination Lighting will make it easier for its customers to fi nd relevant products thus increasing sales, improving its marketing effectiveness and customer satisfaction,” said David Marks, Loomia CEO & Co-Founder. “Today’s announcement demonstrates Loomia’s ability to work across all online retail segments and is an exciting extension of Loomia’s mission to change the way users discover content and products across all media and retail websites.”
By incorporating Loomia’s recommendations feature, Destination Lighting will be able to accurately and dynamically present items of interest for their users. Similarly, Destination Lighting can showcase new, innovative products that customers may never have thought existed on the site. Dedicated to quality selection and service, Destination Lighting is confident that Loomia’s integrated service will provide their patrons a worthwhile online shopping experience.
