For more than 170 years, Høie has left its mark on Scandinavian homes. Satisfied customers describe Høie as a reliable provider of quality bed linen, and Norwegian produced duvets and pillows, with a vision of creating a space for dreams in everyday life.
As the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the shift to online shopping, Høie saw an opportunity to increase revenue opportunities from their website.
They wanted to implement future oriented technology into their existing website experience in order to boost sales, increase conversions, and improve customer satisfaction. They were also interested in working with a company that could be more than a technology provider; they wanted a commercial sparring partner that could help augment and optimize the existing customer journey with more guided and fulfilling paths to conversion.
“We wanted to find a partner who could provide the right mix of technology, e-commerce knowledge and project management. Kindly also has a future oriented solution, which was a very important factor when selecting a vendor,” says Mats Gulbrandsen, General Manager at Høie Retail.
Høie identified several behavioral patterns that limited their ability to generate revenue from the website. For example, for various reasons, some customers do not complete their checkout after adding items to their digital shopping carts. As a result, those abandoned carts add up to a sizable amount of lost revenue.
Høie also has a distinct look and feel on their website that engages customers. Any solution they implemented had to align with that look and feel to maintain a certain aesthetic that would continue to attract visitors and encourage them to follow the guided paths to conversion.
Mats Gulbrandsen: “We wanted a solution that would look good on the page and match the look and feel of our website’s brand profile. Kindly provides a native solution that mirrors our existing website experience so it was a great fit for what we needed. There’s no question that it helped increase our total sales and boost average order values (AOVs).”
