Kinguin transforms online customer experience with Google Recommendations AI
Digital marketplace for gamers Kinguin has integrated Google Recommendations since it launched last year.
By using Google Recommendations AI, Kinguin has been able to optimise sales and improve company profitability, while also delivering highly personalised suggestions that suit a customer’s preferences and touchpoints.
The highlights include:
• Google Recommendations AI has increased Kinguin’s average cart value by 5 EUR • The implementation of the technology has increased CTR (Click-Through Rate) by 2.16 on product pages • Customers now spend, on average, 20 seconds less time looking for products • Kinguin was the first European gaming e-commerce brand to integrate the Google Cloud technology • Customers now spend, on average, 20 seconds less time looking for products • The implementation of the technology has increased CTR by 2.16 on product pages
Kinguin has revealed how working with Google Recommendations AI has proved to be profitable for the business while also delivering an improved online experience for its customers. With over 2.14 billion people worldwide expected to buy online this year, according to Statista, and e-retail sales due to account for 22% of all purchases by 2023, positive interactions can mean the difference between a sale and an abandoned shopping cart.
Google Recommendations AI uses algorithms to deliver highly personalised suggestions that suit a customer’s tastes and preferences. As well as helping them find items quickly, it also delivers the service at scale, something which is crucial to Kinguin who recently celebrated hitting a landmark 10 million customers worldwide. In adopting this technology Kinguin has already improved its customer experience by shortening search times by 20 seconds.
As well as enhancing customer satisfaction Google Recommendations AI has also increased Kinguin’s average cart value by 5 EUR. Conversion rates have also quadrupled since its inception and CTR has doubled, increasing by 2.16 on product pages and 2.8 times on recommendations pages.
