Our deep domain expertise cuts across business and technology. Our ability to extensively test solutions and deploy them at scale allows us to both advise and execute to create new realities for our customers. 

Here's how we did it for Schnucks:

strategy + execution

We helped define OKRs and a roadmap.

We collaborated with Schnucks stakeholders to identify growth and evolution opportunities for the customer experience, then worked to create the rewards program rules and mechanics around points accrual and redemption. With a plan in place, we got to work developing a strategic roadmap and phased implementation plan to digitize the rewards experience.

business + technology

We obsessed over the customer journey.

The mobile app became brought Schnucks' rewards program to life and drove deeper digital engagement with customers. To nurture that engagement, we assembled shopper personas, feature roadmaps and a state-of-the-art marketing automation stack. We also provided ongoing data governance, analysis and a growth strategy to increase customer engagement. 


physical + digital

We took into account all parts of the store

A digital footprint isn't confined to an app. We developed an omnichannel digital signage strategy tailored to locations and performed in-store customer journey audits to identify a content plan. We analyzed service and wait time data that produced a strategy for each display location and developed the creative templates, day-parting and content strategy.
