Antavo joins forces with Astound Commerce to take customer experience and brand loyalty to a new level
January 31, 2022
Pure-play loyalty technology provider Antavo has entered into a technology partnership with leading digital commerce agency, Astound Commerce.
By combining forces, Astound Commerce and Antavo aim to offer businesses a more comprehensive eCommerce service, coupled with next-gen loyalty capabilities. Companies using Shopify Plus are set to benefit greatly from the alliance, thanks to Astound Commerce’s expertise when it comes to the eCommerce platform and Antavo’s flexible integration of loyalty features.
“At Astound Commerce, our aim is to push technology to the edge, and forge life-long brand loyalty through innovative customer experiences. We feel a strong synergy with Antavo, whose commitment to creating customer loyalty and belief in the value it creates for brands and retailers, matches our own. We also like Antavo’s dedication to no-code technology, which will make it easier for end users to manage their work. I have no doubt that, together, we’ll build incredible customer journeys for visionary brands. ” – Samuel Cane, Managing Director, Astound Commerce UK
No-code management and easy integrations have risen to the forefront of digital transformation. Businesses that opt for the combined expertise of agencies and tech providers gain access to not one, but two teams of experts, and thus significantly reduce the time to value of the end product.
Another point of synergy between Astound Commerce and Antavo is fashion industry experience: although both Antavo and Astound Commerce serve enterprises across a range of industries, they each have a large portfolio of fashion brands and a deep understanding of the sector.
“We’re glad to be able to partner with a global agency that understands the value of loyalty in digital commerce and has the experience to lead their clients to success. Combining forces with a best-in-class agency like Astound Commerce extends our capabilities to offer truly next-gen loyalty capabilities all across the globe. Astound Commerce showed unquestionable expertise when it came to eCommerce solutions in the Shopify Plus space, especially for the fashion vertical — an industry that is very important to us.” – Attila Kecsmar, CEO and Co-founder of Antavo
Both fast and luxury fashion have focused heavily on recovery and digital transformation over the past two years and, as such, eCommerce solutions and loyalty programs have seen a rise in adoption across the industry. This means that businesses — whether fashion-focused or not — can make a hyperjump in digitization when they opt for a digital agency, who works in partnership with a next-gen loyalty technology provider, to empower their digital transformation and customer engagement strategies.
