Seamlessly Joining Online and In-Store
Seamlessly Joining Online and In-StoreHibbett Sports is an athletic-inspired fashion retailer that’s been kitting-out customers since 1945. Its 1000+ brick-and-mortar stores had built a solid reputation for a high level of personalized customer service, but it felt this reputation wasn’t replicated online. They needed a solution that could transform their online experience.
Selling athletic sportswear is fiercely competitive. So Hibbett Sports knew its online store had to set itself apart with an experience as memorable as an in-store visit.
World-class content needed to be produced rapidly, without needing developers to make ad-hoc changes every time content needed to be uploaded. Hibbett Sports saw the need for an agile mobile-first approach so that customers could get closer to its products. No matter what device they are viewing on.
Lack of customer personalization
Slow content customization times
Poor communication between its 1000+ brick-and-mortar stores
