The biggest challenges

Sleeplife wanted to provide a perfectly matching online and in-store customer experience where personalized content and professional advice take a leading role. The broad product offering and related information had to be retrieved from the ERP. However, some more advanced products require a tailor-made solution and are therefore only available in one of Sleeplife's 19 brick-and-mortar stores. With their digital platform, the company wanted to entice more customers to buy online or visit their stores for offline conversions.

Focus on the end user

With the Dropsolid Digital Experience Platform, the team was able to deliver a frictionless online customer journey. We improved SEO to boost traffic to the relevant web pages. Visitors are guided by professional advice on the website to help them find the right product or to lead them towards a form for making an in-store appointment. Visitors can select a preferred store, resulting in a more personalized experience that displays relevant contact data and opening hours, quotes from local store managers and a quick option to make an appointment or pick up your order in the store.

Shared knowledge as the key to success

Boerenbond teamed up with Dropsolid to co-create its digital future and to continue developing and enhancing existing online platforms. Combining resources and knowledge resulted in higher efficiency in development, maintenance and project updates. Boerenbond can now choose to involve our Dropsolid consultants at it sees fit. This on-demand approach s a textbook example of co-sourcing.

This approach is technically supported by the Dropsolid Platform, which we use to develop, deploy and maintain over 20 Boerenbond websites. The platform enables structured web development. All developers use the same set of standards and deployment of new features is done in an automated fashion. The platform is connected to development, pre-production and production environments. New features are tested, approved and deployed in a ‘continuous integration’ flow.

The result?

Bi-directional data synchronization is set up between eMmeubel, Sleeplife's ERP, and the website for daily automated product and customer data updates.

Dropsolid Rocketship Commerce is used as an integrated end-to-end e-commerce platform with online payments and real-time inventory updates in the ERP’s decentralized inventory model.

Sleeplife marketers can now easily add new products, blog posts, multimedia content or additional stores online. Temporary promotions can be self-managed by Sleeplife's team and they are automatically taken into account during checkout.

Sleeplife's investment in a more advanced digital customer experience tripled the number of in-store appointments and added the website as a fully-fledged sales channel for bedding and related accessories.

The platform was also awarded as the best website runner-up at the International Splash Awards in 2019.
