Partnering with Emplifi through Go Instore allows us to better showcase the features and benefits of our products and engage with customers to create long-lasting relationships.” 

Orbit Baby will utilize several Emplifi live commerce tools to create a multi-pronged e-commerce strategy, including both its one-to-one video chat and ShopStream livestreaming service, working in tandem with their social shopping features. ShopStream provides a one-to-many live shopping experience that will help Orbit Baby reach unlimited audiences through interactive live video streaming. The company will also be operating a dark store in Ventura, Calif., using video technology for product showcases.

“Partnering with Orbit Baby presents an exciting opportunity for us to leverage our technology in new ways and in a unique segment of the market,” says Andre Hordagoda, co-GM, Social Commerce, Emplifi. “Parents demand the highest quality products for their children, and with Emplifi, Orbit Baby will give their customers better insight into the depth and breadth of their products.

“By partnering with Go Instore, we’re able to deliver the same level of expert advice and guidance regardless of how customers interact with us. We couldn’t be prouder of our store colleagues, so this a perfect solution to continue driving our pet care experience forwards.

As a pet care business that offers a wide variety of services and product solutions, we want to create a joined-up pet care experience so that our customers know they will receive the same great level of service however they choose to shop with us.”

“90% of customers want to sit on a sofa before they purchase it. This isn’t always possible due to the often remote locations of our stores. Go Instore’s one-to-one solution has enabled our customers to trust the sales expert on the other side of the line to test out the sofa for them before completing their purchase. Our Sofologists are able to create an instant connection with customers and remove any friction from the buying journey.”

“Cycle Show, one of our biggest marketing exhibitions, was cancelled due to the pandemic – so we decided to take it online with Go Instore. The reach exceeded what we would expect to see at the in-person show with tens of thousands, possibly even hundreds of thousands, tuning in. ShopStream is the best way of leveraging our top of the range showroom and committed store staff to build a true omnichannel business that millions of customers around the world can enjoy.”
