Overall Satisfaction with Narvar

The primary use of Narvar was to make both our online and in-store experience as consistent as possible. In the store, our customers were given white glove service with consistent messaging/branding. When you translate that to online, many times you lost control of how the user might communicate with you. In our situation, our users were given a FedEx tracking number to track their package. While the information was correct, the experience was lacking since the user just linked to FedEx.com. We lost all visibility and messaging with our user.

In order to correct this messaging issue with little IT resources, we looked to Narvar and their turn-key package tracking solution. Within one month, our users were given tracking information that was displayed/branded with our brand. Additionally, we had the ability to continue the conversation with future recommends and ratings/reviews.
  • Narvar offered us a turn-key solution that we had up and running in less than a month.
  • Narvar offered several out of the box widgets (solutions) to help build/customize content (calendar view, milestone icons, SMS messaging and personalize content based on items purchased).
  • Narvar's solution is scalable/expandable to include returns (once we are ready).
  • Narvar could do a better job at keeping in touch with their custom and informing them on ways to improve their experience. Many times, I had to be the one to reach out.
  • Monthly review meetings were often missed with limited reporting. Narvar finally created a reporting dashboard which helped eliminate the need for frequent meetings.
  • Customer experience & perception (while hard to measure) has definitely increased given the feedback that the call center received.
  • Social interaction as well as rating/reviews saw an increase in engagement since the user was on a branded experience and could click through to other content areas
  • Inhouse
At the time, Narvar had no other competitors to my knowledge. We looked at building this functionality in house which had a 3 month estimate. Everyone involved happily welcomed the tool.
If you are an e-commerce retailer that needs out of the box functionality to enhance your shipment tracking, then I highly recommend Narvar. The monthly spend far out weighs the cost of having an internal team build this out --- not to mention the time it takes to spin the solution up.
