Chicago, IL - January 11, 2023
Tangiblee partners with the Watches of Switzerland Group, the UK’s leading luxury watch retailer to offer exclusive online, immersive shopping experiences such as Compare To and Virtual Try-On, the latter of which leverages augmented reality (AR) technology. Initially, Tangiblee launched as a trial with one of the Group’s retail brands Goldsmiths. Goldsmiths A/B tested Tangiblee over the course of 5 months to achieve an increase in both Conversion Rate and Revenue Per Visitor and ultimately delivered a staggering Return on Investment.
“Tangiblee is an expert in delivering highly engaging e-commerce technology and has the data to prove it. They have elevated our customers’ shopping experience and accelerated our e-commerce growth,” Ian Warwick, Ecommerce Director. “We have enjoyed working with Tangiblee and are excited to continue innovating and providing the best online shopping experience.”
“We have thoroughly enjoyed working with the Watches of Switzerland Group to provide their customers the most exceptional online experience possible,” said Ryan McLaughlin, Director of Accounts. “They have been true partners throughout our engagement and we are excited to continue innovating with them for years to come!”
The Watches of Switzerland Group partnered with Tangiblee to provide an exclusive and engaging online shopping experience. It was important that the solution was scalable, considering the thousands of SKUs that make up Goldsmiths’ online catalog, and could be implemented quickly. Tangiblee was able to deliver on these shared goals, and while leveraging the existing imagery on Goldsmiths’ site. Goldsmiths’ customers can now use On-Model Imagery, VTO, and Compare To features when shopping for jewelry and watches, and following the trial, has now also launched across the Group’s other retail brand sites such as Watches of Switzerland and Mappin & Webb in the UK and Watches of Switzerland and Mayors in the US.
