Adobe Target

1. We changed ship dates on individual product pages depending on customer location so they would have an accurate timeline for their orders. This really helped lower our volume of customer service calls on tracking orders.2. We have stores as well as an online presence. With Target we were able to advertise sales on b-stock items from our warehouse to our local customers without letting those that live outside a certain radius see the promo.3. If your marketing team doesn't have a tech background this software has a steep learning curve. There is quite a bit of manual configuration required. The image carousel is one example that we struggled with.

Reflektion

Reflektion is very well suited for ecommerce sites that are looking to provide their customers meaningful product recommendations tailored to their specific user experience on our site. We are also beginning to use Reflektion for search results. If you find that your customer base uses your search bar or is having issues with their search experience, Reflektion offers a great auto complete search results feature.We have a sister site that only offers a small catalog of products and we do no use the auto search results feature on this site. If your company has a small catalog the search results tool may not be as effective. I cannot think of a scenario in which an ecommerce site would not find it helpful to provide customized product recommendations to their customers.

Pros

  • Because the software is established there is lots of online help available and most of the bugs have been worked out
  • Adobe has a vast supply of resources if your pockets are deep enough.
  • The dashboard is easy to follow and is getting more user-friendly. You no longer have to be an HTML wizard to implement changes.

  • Reflektion is able to offer recommendations specific to each customer that views our site. We have found that this greatly increases conversion rate compared to other recommendations engines we have used.
  • The Reflektion dashboard is very straightforward and easy to use. We had to train a team that was used to working with a different product and found it very easy to get them all up to speed with using Reflektion.
  • During the implementation process, we worked very closely with the Reflektion dev team. They were incredibly helpful in making the deployment go as smoothly as possible.

Cons

  • The product itself is great. I would like to see more improvement in the service department. Help can be hard to find for smaller companies. It literally took us months sometimes to have someone get back to us.
  • There are lots of products within the Adobe Cloud so there is a lot of clicking to get where you need to be. Having a single sign on or short cut for login would be nice.
  • Target is becoming more user-friendly but knowing code is a huge plus for this software. I have demoed other software with the same capabilities and in my opinion, having developer background is a huge benefit if you will be using Target vs. other competitors.

  • While I mentioned that training our team in using the Reflektion dashboard was quite pain free, the dashboard can get a little overwhelming to a first time user. There are a lot of options and customization features available that can be intimidating at first.
  • There isn't really too much for us to criticize with Reflektion. As I said, we switched from another product to Reflektion and so far have had almost no issues. When they do come up, the Reflektion team has been very helpful.

As per my last response, integration with the rest of the Adobe Marketing Cloud is a key factor for us.

i don't think we use the full functionalities of the tool, but to use the full functions, it's almost impossible (Too hard)

In-Person Training

Adobe Target8.1
Based on 3 answers
The instructor that came to train us was awesome and this training was very useful. I would recommend it for anyone who is going to be using this software. I only mark it lower because it is an added expense to an already expensive product, and a lot of the training covered the "Target" portion of the software (which again, we didn't use)

Online Training

Adobe Target6.1
Based on 3 answers
The training was very easy to understand, however it would have been more useful to my development team than me. It was also primarily over-the-phone, which is never as easy to follow as in-person. We ended up scheduling and paying for an in-person training session to supplement the online/phone training because it wasn't helpful enough.

Implementation

Ensure that documentation is thorough and detailed. Make no assumptions that IT or developers know why they are doing what you're asking them to do, and provide detailed instructions to them.

Alternatives Considered

We have looked at Optimizely but at this point are sticking with Test & Target. We like the integration it has with our Analytics tools such as Ad Hoc and SiteCatalyst. Also, we feel that Adobe has some interesting products that we would like to dig into in the future such as Audience Manager.

Reflektion is a very cost-effective, complete solution providing individualization for preview search, product recommendations, full page search, and content. Compared to the other services they offered more features utilizing SOLR results but with continued learning. Other services didn't have the full list of capabilities or were much more expensive.

Return on Investment

  • Increased employee efficiency - testing happens very quickly now, sometimes in minutes! Before it took weeks or months going through Technology.
  • More testing means increased learnings and revenue.

  • Increasing conversion rate is almost always the goal when we start a new project and it is safe to say that Reflektion has helped us increase conversion rate for customers clicking through product recommendations.
  • With our previous recommendations engine, tweaking and customizing the recommendations on our site was not nearly as effective or easy as it is with Reflektion. This has saved us countless hours in dev and manual operations work.
  • We have not seen any negative impacts of Reflektion and hope this continues.
