Ettlingen, March 9, 2020 – OUTLETCITY METZINGEN, Europe’s number 1 outlet, stands for exclusive shopping experiences both on site in Metzingen and in its own online shop. With epoq My Stream, a completely newly designed product from the AI expert epoq internet services GmbH, OUTLETCITY METZINGEN GmbH is focusing on a fully personalized shopping area within its online shop.
With a wide range of over 50,000 products from over 270 brands, the OUTLETCITY online shop offers a wide selection of premium and luxury brands. In the personalized shopping area within the online shop, epoq My Stream now caters to the needs and preferences of each individual customer. The customers’ personal stream is filled with individual content according to their preferences such as favorite brands, favorite categories, style favorites, products and content. My Stream adapts dynamically and in a personalized way, both in terms of content and layout, to the preferences of each individual customer and also offers possibilities for intelligent interaction.
“As a pilot customer of epoq My Stream, we are proud to open a new door in e-commerce. Just like a good salesperson who knows their customers and their preferences, with epoq My Stream we can now offer each individual customer a personal selection of relevant products and content on a daily basis,” says Dr. Stefan Hoffmann, Managing Director of OUTLETCITY METZINGEN GmbH. “We want to bind our customers even more closely to our online shop with this special product,” adds Dr. Hoffmann.
Similar to Netflix or Instagram, where users can call up content relevant to them and, at the samt time, be inspired by relevant suggestions, the new epoq product, My Stream, focuses on customers and their preferences. This motivates customers to visit their own shopping area regularly in order to receive new suggestions again and again – thus creating a new kind of customer loyalty in e-commerce.
The technology behind the relevant content of epoq My Stream is based on the many years of AI experience and expertise of the technology provider epoq in the field of online shop personalization and is fully GDPR-compliant. With My Stream, epoq is introducing a new form of online shopping that is geared towards the changing needs and preferences of online shoppers. “With My Stream, we are adding a decisive building block to our portfolio and coming a big step closer to our vision of supporting online shoppers holistically in their purchasing process with consistent personalization,” says Thorsten Mühling, epoq CEO.
