55% of Retailers Plan to Utilize Artificial Intelligence (AI) to Improve Customer Service within Three Years

BOSTON, Sept. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Retailers recognize the value of using artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance customer service, as 55% plan to leverage this technology within three years. According to the 2018 Customer Experience/Unified Commerce Survey, 7% of retailers are currently using AI as digital assistants and chatbots, and another 48% plan to implement this capability within three years.

Artificial intelligence is a method of data analysis that automates analytical model building to learn from data, identify patterns and make decisions with minimal human intervention. Some retailers are experimenting with AI to offer purchasing suggestions based on customer responses to a series of questions or to pinpoint the most convenient time of day to reach out to consumers with products they would be willing to purchase based on past clicks and website visit data.

“The convergence of AI with traditional customer service has the ability to transform the shopping experience,” said Perry Kramer, senior vice president and practice lead, BRP. “AI offers the ability to exploit the vast amounts of customer preference and transaction data gathered and reach a much larger group of consumers on a personal level to enhance the customer experience.”

Amazon and other multi-channel retailers are currently experimenting with AI to offer purchasing suggestions based on responses to a series of questions and past purchase history. Sephora, using a Kik chatbot, offers customers “conversational commerce” by offering a one-on-one mobile chat experience to offer ideas on new makeup looks and identify products in tutorials to offer customers a better shopping experience. In-store, the chatbot is becoming a personal shopping assistant by offering product recommendations, reviews and ratings.

While chatbots can be a useful customer service tool, some consumers may not know if they are talking to a real person or a bot until they’ve already entered the interaction. That lack of clarity may turn off some consumers, which can negatively impact your brand.

“Transparency is a big discussion for AI. Do you want the customer to think they’re speaking with a real human being or should you disclose that this is a conversation with Watson or some other AI technology,” said Jeffrey Neville, senior vice president and practice lead, BRP. “That’s a decision retailers have to make right now, as AI using voice is probably going to mess up the conversation at some point, and the customer is going to realize that they’re talking to a computer.”

Diane von Furstenberg Partners with Salesforce to Build Immersive Shopping Experiences

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — DREAMFORCE 2018 — Salesforce (NYSE: CRM), the global leader in CRM, today announced that luxury fashion brand Diane von Furstenberg (DVF) has partnered with Salesforce Success Cloud to build DVF 360, a unique and engaging 3D shopping experience powered by Salesforce Commerce Cloud. DVF unveiled DVF 360, at New York Fashion Week, and it is now available online at DVF.com and at its flagship store in New York.

Salesforce (PRNewsFoto/salesforce.com) (PRNewsfoto/Salesforce)

With DVF 360, shoppers are transported to the iconic DVF headquarters in New York to browse the brand’s Fall ’18 collection in a setting that is engaging and entertaining. Shoppers can explore products and content in 360 and also make purchases. The shoppers’ journey culminates in Diane von Furstenberg’s office in New York, giving them an intimate, behind-the-scenes view of the iconic designer’s personal workspace.

“Since Diane von Furstenberg and the DVF brand have global recognition, we wanted to provide digital access to our DVF headquarters and invite consumers to experience the brand from the inside. Our partnership with Salesforce allows us to share everything from our luxurious Swarovski designed staircase to Diane’s iconic office while highlighting top looks of the season,” said Sandra Campos, chief executive officer, Diane von Furstenberg. “We acknowledge that the future of shopping will blur the line between physical and digital, and we believe this innovative 360 experience will add excitement and connect us even further with our community.” 

In addition to shopping the DVF 360 experience online, customers can experience it in DVF’s flagship store in New York. There, DVF store associates will have an iPad to guide shoppers through DVF 360. If shoppers are interested in making a purchase, they can do so in-store or purchase a piece they are interested in via DVF 360 if it is not available in the store.

“Launching new customer experiences isn’t a once a year, once a quarter activity—the companies that are winning understand the importance of moving fast and innovating for their customers every single day,” said Jamie Domenici, Global SVP, Customer Adoption and Growth, Salesforce Success Cloud and Customer Success Group. “DVF really gets it. Salesforce is proud to be a trusted partner to them in innovation, and to help bring their vision for immersive shopping to life.”

DVF has been on the front lines of technology and shopping innovation since embarking on its ecommerce journey with Salesforce in 2011. DVF uses Commerce Cloud to bridge the gap between online and in-store commerce, get a 360-degree view of its customers, and personalize shopping experiences across every touchpoint, using predictive product recommendations powered by Salesforce Einstein artificial intelligence.

About Diane von Furstenberg
Diane von Furstenberg founded her eponymous line in 1972. It has since become a global luxury fashion brand celebrated for its bold and creative approach to color and print, and admired for its sensual femininity. Renowned for its iconic wrap dress and signature prints, DVF now offers a full collection of ready-to-wear and accessories, and has established itself as a leader of creativity in the fashion industry.

Headquartered in New York City, DVF has a global distribution network in over 50 countries and 1250 points of sale including 100 DVF owned and partnered stores throughout North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia Pacific.

Engagement Labs Releases TotalSocial® Ranking of Top Consumer Electronics Brands

NEW YORK, Sept. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Engagement Labs (TSXV: EL) (OTCQB: ELBSF), an industry-leading data and analytics firm that focuses on the entire social ecosystem and its impact on business, today released its TotalSocial® ranking of the top consumer electronics brands in the U.S. based on social influence.

Engagement Labs Inc. (PRNewsfoto/Engagement Labs)

The analysis is unique in that it combines offline and online consumer conversations and is based on Engagement Labs’ proprietary TotalSocial data and analytics, which continuously measures the most important drivers of brand performance in both face-to-face (offline) and social media (online) conversations. The brands in the top ten have earned the highest TotalSocial scores in the category for the last six months, compared to the Company’s previous ranking in November 2017.

Top 10 TotalSocial®
Consumer Electronics

Rank Change

1.     PlayStation


2.     Kindle


3.     Samsung


4.     Apple


5.     Bose


6.     Xbox


7.     Sony


8.     Roku


9.     Nintendo


10.   LG


Source: Engagement Labs TotalSocial Top 10 Consumer
Electronics Brands 6 months ending June 2018 compared to
6 months ending September 2017.

According to Engagement Labs’ report, parent company Apple tumbled out of the top spot to land at number four. Although key sub-brands like iPhone and iPad failed to break into the top 10, the company’s brands collectively dominate consumer conversations, despite not having brand social pages. If all of Apple’s brands were combined into a single score, the parent brand – which recently became the first publicly traded company to reach $1 trillion in value – would easily dominate the number one position.

Sony’s PlayStation, benefiting from the enormous popularity of the game Fortnite: Battle Royale, claimed the number one spot as its online sentiment increased. This score indicates consumers are talking positively about the brand in social media. More than 125 million people worldwide are playing Fortnite: Battle Royale, and the game is the top grossing title on consoles, according to SuperData Arcade. This popularity has contributed to a higher number of positive conversations about PlayStation. In addition, a PS4/Fortnite bundle kit hit the market in late August, further driving buzz.

“In consumer electronics, social performance sometimes is driven by having the hottest or newest toy, as we are seeing with Playstation’s Fortnite game. But it also helps to have widespread adoption and use, which are key to the social success of Kindle, Samsung, and Bose,” said Ed Keller, CEO of Engagement Labs. “It’s counter-intuitive but also true that offline conversation is extremely important to technology brands. We find that nearly 30 percent of electronics purchases are explained by consumer conversations, and more than half of the impact comes from face-to-face and voice-to-voice conversation.”

Meanwhile, Bose jumped five spots to fifth in the rankings. Its online sentiment and offline influence scores increased, as did online brand sharing, which measures the number of consumers sharing the brands’ marketing campaigns via social media. The brand’s noise-cancelling headphones have received rave reviews, and its newly released noise-masking sleepbuds appear to be following the same trajectory. Designed to promote better sleep, the new headphones are already in high demand.

Nintendo took a three-spot dive in the rankings to number 9 due to sharp declines in both offline and online influence. At the recent E3 conference, the annual event for video games and consoles, the brand’s announcements failed to impress media, analysts and even investors, as its stock price plunged shortly after. 

Computer maker Asus experienced the biggest drop in the category, plummeting 17 spots to number 22. Although the brand’s scores weakened across the board, its online and offline influence scores performed significantly worse than any other measure. The brand faces intense competition, as Apple recently surpassed it in the notebook market. In addition, PC sales are on a downward trend.

Protenus Recognized by Gartner in Two 2018 ‘Hype Cycles’

BALTIMORE, Sept. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Protenus, the market-leading healthcare compliance analytics platform, announced today that it was mentioned as a Sample Vendor in two July 2018 Gartner Hype Cycle Reports: the Hype Cycle for Risk Management, 2018 and the Hype Cycle for Real-Time Health Systems, 2018.

Recognizing the ever-increasing threat to patient privacy as patient data becomes increasingly interconnected and more freely available, we believe Gartner is leading the way in highlighting the importance of next-generation privacy monitoring technologies to the modern Real-Time Health System. According to Gartner, in its Hype Cycle for Real-Time Health System Technologies, EFMM is “beginning to be used more regularly to detect internal fraud and unauthorized data access within healthcare provider organizations,” as industry standards require proactive monitoring of all accesses to patient data.

As health systems move to the true Real-Time Health System (RTHS) model, necessitating the easy availability and interconnection of a wide array of patient data, they must transform their ability to detect fraud and misuse of this data, which becomes more common every day. The 143 publicly disclosed health data breaches in Q2 2018 further emphasize the need for next-generation solutions to tackle the ongoing challenge of protecting patient privacy in healthcare, underscoring the critical need for EFMM technologies.  

Advanced analytics must review 100 percent of accesses, better detect threats to highly sensitive data, and deliver all-new capabilities and value to end-users. Gartner notes that such technologies “will see increased adoption over the next several years as healthcare providers concentrate on strategies, policies and technical controls to mitigate risk in response to increased data breach activity in healthcare in recent years and more rigorous compliance scrutiny and enforcement.” The note observes three key benefits that accrue to organizations who deploy these technologies:

Regulatory Compliance: Gartner notes that the “U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) has increased the pressure on healthcare providers through increased HIPAA and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act compliance audit activity, and by imposing more significant fines and penalties on transgressors… These technologies assure compliance with these ever-more-stringent requirements.”

Actionable Insight: Furthermore, Gartner notes that “most healthcare providers do not have mature log management in place — and if they do, they struggle to extract meaningful and actionable information from this data. To combat the rising tide of fraud and misuse, healthcare provider CIOs and compliance officers should track and monitor user access to patient data by routinely examining the application log entries that are generated by their critical business and clinical systems.” New technologies in the space offer mature capabilities that allow for accurate, comprehensive review.

Reduce Risk: Gartner notes that, overall, these technologies “improve a healthcare provider’s overall IT governance, risk and compliance posture and, specifically, to reduce the risk of fraud and misuse related to unauthorized disclosures and access to PHI, as well as significant fines, penalties and damage to brand and reputation that might result.” By detecting threats earlier and changing culture, future threats can be prevented.

“At Protenus, we’re committed to delivering a next-generation compliance analytics solution that comprehensively reviews every access to patient data and accurately detects the misuse of that data, wherever it is housed. We are gratified to be recognized in these reports and proud to be part of this evolving landscape. It is exciting to see market adoption of new privacy monitoring solutions, as we know how important it is that advanced capabilities emerge in this important field, offering new possibilities to health system CIOs, CISOs and privacy officers,” said Robert Lord, Protenus President and Co-Founder.

ContentSquare Launches Augmented Reality Tool for Brands Seeking Instant Digital Customer Analytics

NEW YORK, Sept. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Continuing to provide marketers and brands with deeper analytics and insights into how and why online users do what they do, ContentSquare, a digital experience insights platform, today announced a new solution – CS Live – that delivers customer experience (CX) information in real-time with one click.

“Because digital is a mission critical channel today, we want to make sure that, for companies we support, key stakeholders can access customer experience insights as easily as they can walk into their brick and mortar stores, and observe where customers are going, which display they are looking at, where they hesitate, where they might experience frustration, etc. In particular, we believe senior executives needs to access this data directly, without needing to rely exclusively on expert analysts,” said Jonathan Cherki, CEO and Founder of ContentSquare. “Relying on a handful of experts is neither efficient nor scalable. Enterprises – many of which are overwhelmed with data – need to make their website optimization decisions based on insightful experience data that drives conversions instead of on their gut feeling.”

Now, by simply downloading ContentSquare’s CS Live browser plugin from the Chrome Web Store, users can browse their respective sites for instant CX analytics. With CS Live, entire teams can easily access customer experience insights, get answers to their CX and visitor engagement questions as quickly as it takes to browse their website, and complement their existing website testing strategies. From CEOs to analysts, internal teams can now benefit from advanced CX and visitor engagement analytics with no training required.

“CS Live helps GoPro immediately identify engagement metrics without having to load and sift through reporting data – this reduces time required for analysis and accelerates our decision making process,” said Eumir Nicasio, Head of Product, Digital & eCommerce of GoPro.

“Universally, web users have grown to have zero tolerance when it comes to searching for and receiving information online,” added Jonathan Cherki, CEO of ContentSquare. “CS Live is a practical solution for brands seeking immediate feedback – like Amazon one click buying or Uber one click taxi – on how customers are utilizing their sites. CS Live augments your site with actionable behavioral metrics. It’s a bit like having a real-time performance review with your website. CS Live has an array of use cases, from a conversion manager needing answers as to how her visitors are engaging with a new checkout process to an ecommerce manager inquiring about which piece of content has generated the most revenue on his company’s site, even in a particular region like France, that month.”

CS Live can be used to perform side-by-side site comparisons and discover how a brand’s A/B test strategy drives customer engagement. It can also be used to analyze dynamic content and influence content marketing strategies. Allowing for deeper insights, CS Live can also easily attribute customer experience KPIs from engagement to return on investment (ROI) for all active content elements. Further, it does not require a tagging plan, and is compatible with ContentSquare’s zone-based heat maps to compare and contrast content performance regardless of where the content is placed on the site or what device was used to view or access it.

ContentSquare is a digital experience insights platform that helps businesses understand how and why users are interacting with their app, mobile and web sites. They compute billions of touch and mouse movements and transform this knowledge into profitable actions that increase engagement, reduce operational costs and maximize conversion rates. Using behavioral data, artificial intelligence and big data to provide automatic recommendations, ContentSquare empowers every member of the digital team to easily measure the impact of their actions and make fast and productive data-driven decisions to optimize the customer journey.

Digital Therapeutics Market to Reach $7.83 Bn, Globally, by 2025 at 20.5% CAGR-Allied Market Research

PORTLAND, Oregon, September 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ —

Increasing penetration of smartphones & tablets and rising incidence of chronic diseases are expected to boost the growth of the global digital therapeutics market

Allied Market Research published a report, titled, Digital Therapeutics Market by Application (Diabetes, Obesity, Cardio Vascular Diseases (CVD), Central Nervous System (CNS) Disease, Gastrointestinal Disorders (GID), Respiratory Diseases, Smoking Cessation, and Others), Product Type (Software and Devices), and Sales Channel (Business-to-Business (B2B) and Business-to-Consumers (B2C)): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2018-2025. The report offers an in-depth analysis of the industry by closely monitoring the market trends, drivers & opportunities, top investment pockets, key growth strategies, and competitive landscape.

     (Logo: https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/636519/Allied_Market_Research_Logo.jpg )

Rapid penetration of smartphones & tablets and high prevalence of chronic diseases drive the growth of the global digital therapeutics market. In addition, increasing awareness about the benefits of digital therapeutics such as low healthcare expenditure, improved patient & doctor communication, and efficient management of patients’ health supplements the market growth. However, concerns regarding privacy of patients’ data hamper the growth of the industry. On the contrary, high growth potential in the emerging markets is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the market players.

Request Sample Report at: https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/request-sample/2117

Obesity segment would manifest fastest growth through 2025 

Obesity segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 23.1% during the forecast period, as patients spend a copious amount of money to treat obesity. However, the diabetes segment would hold the largest market share, i.e., about 25% share of the total market by 2025. The report discusses applications such as cardiovascular diseases (CVD), central nervous system (CNS) disease, gastrointestinal disorders (GID), respiratory diseases, and smoking cessation, and others.

Software segment would remain dominant through 2025  

In 2017, the software segment contributed about two-thirds of the market share and is expected to register the fastest CAGR of 20.6% during the study period. This is attributed to the increased utilization of software for transmiting patients’ data from wearable devices to physicians via different electronic devices. The report also includes in depth analysis of the devices segment.

Major sales channels in the market  

The report includes an in-depth analysis of the major sales channels of the global digital therapeutics market including business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C). In 2017, B2C segment garnered more than one-third share of the total market, owing to staggering sales of smartphone applications, online programs, and wearable devices. However, the B2B segment would grow at the fastest CAGR of 17.5% through 2025, as products are sold indirectly to customers through intermediaries such as Google Play and iOS app store, which in turn creates more profitable opportunities.

Asia-Pacific: the fastest growing region 

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing segment in the market by 2025, owing to rapid improvements in healthcare infrastructure and increase in penetration of smartphones in developing countries such as India and China. However, North America would remain the dominant segment throughout the study period, contributing more than 41% of the total market share due to large number of new product launches and favorable reimbursement scenario in the U.S. The other regions explored in the study include Europe and Latin America, Middle East and Africa (LAMEA).
