Mountain View and Novato, California (PRWEB) August 23, 2012
Cloudmeter, a pioneer in the area of big data capture and analytics, and Semphonic, the world's largest independent Web analytics consultancy, today announces the availability of a new joint white paper - “Improve Your Digital Merchandising by Moving Beyond Page-Based to Product-Based Analytics.” The white paper focuses on optimizing the merchandising levers on product list, aisle, and search results pages – the pages that do most of the heavy lifting when it comes to eCommerce merchandising.
The white paper covers a set of key merchandising questions product marketers should ask, defines a new set of metrics for providing deep merchandising reporting, and covers the basics of analyzing these problem sets. It also tackles data collection problems and shows how Cloudmeter’s solution can answer key challenges relating to the data collection and integration required for page and product-based analytics.
“With product-based pages becoming key to eCommerce success, a host of critical questions around the optimum density of call-outs and discounts, the cannibalization effect of discounts and reviews, and the impact of price range on overall page performance should be top-of-mind for any sophisticated eCommerce shop. In the white paper, we explore how to use analytics to optimize those merchandising levers,” said Gary Angel, President and CTO of Semphonic.
“Your analytics is only as good as your data,” said Ronit Belson, VP - Marketing and Business Development at Cloudmeter. “Making these critical product page decisions depends on the ability to collect all the data required for such analytics and seamlessly integrate it with your chosen data warehouse and analytics solution.”
