Below are some examples of recent Headspring projects:
- Website/Fulfillment Integration: We designed an architecture to streamline the integration of a global eCommerce site and 14 back-end warehouse and fulfillment systems. The result was better intra-site search and 1000% faster page load times for an improved shopper experience.
- Loyalty Programs: For a grocer, we developed a customer loyalty system to better track spending patterns, and integrate transactions with point of sale systems, data warehouse and the online store. This enabled more targeted marketing to over 16 million loyalty program members with capacity to process more than one million transactions per day. Using this system, the grocer drove $24 million of sales for a single product line, improved ability to forecast future spends, target customers, accelerate spends on specific inventories and increase revenue on historically slow days.
- Mobile Online Store: We created a responsive mobile eCommerce site for a building materials retailer that targeted commercial contractors. The site enabled expedited ordering and delivery of materials to building sites to shave the time it took contractors to receive raw materials for critical construction schedules.
