Designing for customer experience in an Amazon world:

The Amazon affect is a phenomenon that has completely redefined customer expectations when shopping online. From the inception of Amazon Prime, global eCommerce markets have been on the back-foot to keep up with consumer expectations in delivery, availability, pricing, and innovation in the customer journey. Even in markets where Amazon has no presence the Amazon affect can be felt. This session will aid in designing an eCommerce customer experience that can compete and excel in an Amazon world.


Optimising fulfillment for cost, speed and profit:

Delivery is the culmination of the entire online customer journey and has a larger impact on the decision to purchase, than price and quality. From package optimisation to reduce cost to the use of advanced technology to guarantee faster deliveries, this session will guide large and small businesses on a fulfillment strategy that bolsters the customer experience whilst enhancing profit opportunity in the fastest growing segment of the eCommerce supply chain.


Driving demand through surgical precision:

Whilst eCommerce penetration continues to grow globally, smaller brands and businesses are competing with monstrous marketplaces, and these marketplaces are continually under fire from stronger competitors. The options for consumers as to where to spend money crosses borders and cultures and are as wide spread as the internet itself. Being able to drive demand amongst this clutter is less about making the most noise and more about surgical precision in capturing attention. This session will showcase the best practice principals for capturing and retaining attention, increasing conversion rates and a return on marketing investment.


Payments, Trust and Security – moving beyond the transaction:

eCommerce can only grow as fast as consumers can transact and it is the principal enabler for the entire industry. Africa has a complex and often restricted payments landscape with a sordid history of fraud and regulatory abuse. This session will explore the three most important elements that underpin payments in eCommerce; widening the payments catchment area, building trust amongst consumers and securing online transactions.
