Finding the right pricing

Faced with ever more alert buyers, AI offers a multitude of pricing possibilities that allow you to be reactive in a fluctuating context and remain competitive. These new solutions help e-vendors automate the deployment of their pricing strategies and optimize their prices according to consumers' tendencies. This approach offers the advantage of adjusting prices more quickly, adapting to market changes and protecting profits by taking into account criteria such as margin and volume objectives, stock levels, product segmentation, etc.

  • In the fashion industry, 49% of consumers consider price to be a determining factor.
  • Promotions influence the act of purchasing in 39% of cases, 34% for cosmetics, and 35% for the sports and culture industry.

Using forecasting models, AI can also identify ideal times to launch promotions or discounts, increasing sales conversions while minimizing revenue losses.

By 2025, 30% of marketing messages from large companies will be generated by AI, compared to less than 2% in 2022.

Automate your custom messages

Understanding your customers, recommending their preferred products, customizing your exchanges, adapting your messages in real time, and reaching the right person in the right place at the right time is possible! 80% of companies that use automated marketing solutions see their number of leads increase, and 77% see an improvement in conversions.

Marketing automation helps you segment your audience and perform routine tasks throughout the customer experience, without having to intervene directly. Based on all the customer data collected, browsing and purchase histories, reviews, coupons, loyalty points, visits to physical stores, etc., AI makes it possible to design personalized communication scenarios to automatically send messages according to the path and on all channels (website, email, SMS, notifications, social networks), at the most conducive times for customer engagement:

  1. Welcome
  2. Order confirmation
  3. Confirmation of subscription to the newsletter
  4. Reminders following visits to a website page, downloading a document (manual, operating instructions, recipe card, etc.), using a module (calculator, help with choice, etc.)
  5. Cart abandonment
  6. Cross-selling
  7. Upselling (upgrade, new version, etc.)
  8. Lead-turning to maintain conversation with a prospect
  9. Customer satisfaction survey
  10. Events: birthdays, Mother's/Father's/ Grandmother's Day (if identified as such), year of registration (loyalty), etc.

Leveraging the power of AI for ecommerce

Optimizing stock

Predictive AI can analyze past sales data, seasonality and promotional periods to anticipate future demand and accurately manage stock levels to ensure product availability.

Self-learning artificial intelligence systems provide complete models of your business. Industrializable, scalable and interoperable, they make it possible to adapt information in real time to optimize purchases and storage costs, avoid surpluses and stockouts. The global cost of stock distortion (stockouts and overstocks) amounted to more than $1.9 billion in 2022, an increase of 12.7% from 2020.13
