E-commerce Audit of product and packaging quality
product and Retail Intelligence
Real-time intelligence for pack and product performance through e-commerce.
We partnered with a global CPG company to take a proactive approach to the measurement of pack and product quality performance within the e-commerce channel. Previous research conducted by Eolas on behalf of the client, found that up to 1/3 of delivered products, arrived to the consumer with notable defects.
The challenge was to understand the full incidence and extent of quality issues. Subsequently they wished to understand the impact upon experience and re-purchase intent with consumers and explore what consumers valued most as part of their packaging experience considering both primary and secondary packaging elements.
We developed a bespoke e-commerce experience program, evaluating 9 products sold through one major US e-tailer. We recruited real consumers of the products who then completed a full e-commerce journey, purchasing 6 product types. Using our Eolas QualX platform, they recorded their experiences and reactions at each touchpoint, including; delivery experience, secondary packaging, protective packaging, product packaging and product quality.
