Unbound Commerce is pleased to announce the launch of its latest customer, Adam and Eve, the largest and oldest retailer of adult products in the United States, and their new mobile commerce site, m.adameve.com.
Glenn Mersereau, Internet Marketing Director for Adam and Eve, describes the motivation behind their mobile initiative: “Mobile is no longer an option for online retailers. Our customers are increasingly expecting the convenience of anytime-anywhere shopping, and we were convinced that it would be worth our effort to do it right. The addition of a mobile site now makes a fully omni-channel retailer and complements our existing commerce site, mail order catalog, and network of forty franchised retail stores across the United States.”
FAST RESULTS Although the new mobile site went live just two weeks ago, results have been promising. “Our mobile commerce performance has exceeded our expectations,” said Mersereau. “Even before we have had a chance to implement our mobile promotions and marketing efforts, customers are eagerly embracing the new site. Already, we are seeing 7-8% of our online orders being generated the mobile site.”
WHY UNBOUND COMMERCE “Our strategy called for a distinctly mobile site,” noted Vicki Miller, Website Manager for Adam and Eve. “Rather than settle for simply reformatting of our existing site, we wanted to create a fully mobile-optimized version of AdamEve.com.” Nevertheless, it was critical that the mobile site be driven by the existing e-commerce systems behind the main site. “We felt that Unbound Commerce has the best approach for what we wanted to achieve,” said Jeff Cunningham, Development Manager for Adam and Eve, “plus they have deep integration experience with the kinds of systems we already use, such as Endeca-on-Demand from Thanx Media. They have proven to be a terrific partner for our mobile initiatives.” Results speak for themselves. “Our mobile site is fast and responsive,” reports Mersereau. “We have received very positive feedback from our customers who enjoy the new convenience we’re providing for them.”
