KLM sees email conversions quadruple with implementation of Webtrends Streams

KLM achieves 72% click through rates for email campaign with Webtrends

LONDON, UK 8th JULY 2014 - Webtrends, the global leader in digital marketing solutions, today announced that leading travel company, KLM, has implemented its Analytics, Optimize and Streams solutions, resulting in a significant rise in the success of KLM's email marketing campaigns.

Webtrends Analytics has empowered KLM to maximise its email marketing strategy using data-driven evidence and knowledge, allowing KLM to have a better understanding of its consumers. Since implementing Analytics and Optimize, KLM has seen improvements on campaigns and activities. With Webtrends Streams, KLM has been able to immediately process customer data and send an appropriate email within an hour of them leaving the site.

Webtrends was selected for its robust Analytics and Optimize platform, and ability to access in-depth reporting into online visitor behaviour to identify actionable insights. Since using Webtrends technology, KLM has seen significant uplift in conversions through email marketing, with markets such as The Netherlands, Great Britain and Germany seeing uplifts of up to 400%. Additionally, emails sent using Streams intelligence have seen a 34% increase in open rate, and a 94% higher click-through rate. KLM has also been able to identify potential drop-off points in its sales funnel, and altered its user experience to address these potential losses.

Frans Poldervaart at KLM says: "The travel market by nature is very fast-moving and we needed to be able to quickly identify any potential customers interested in booking flights within the optimal timeframe of one hour. When we saw Streams' capabilities, we were instantly sold. We have been delighted with the results and can see the scalability of it for other regions."

Maarten Sambre, Regional Director Benelux for Webtrends, adds: "KLM is operating in a lucrative market, rife with competition. We understand the need of KLM to differentiate from its competitors, and any challenges they may face in the travel industry. The results speak for themselves, Streams has been highly effective and we look forward to expanding our services with KLM to more of its international markets."

To date, Webtrends technology has been deployed across 13 markets including the Netherlands, UK, Germany, France, Finland, Switzerland, Denmark, Spain, Finland, Italy, Sweden, US and Canada. This provides KLM with visibility into any differences in campaign preferences from visitors in different countries, allowing each campaign to be fully optimised to the consumer.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
