7 Reasons for Abandonment in eCommerce and the need for Contextual Support

Shopper confidence, or more accurately the lack thereof, is the bane of the online retailer. There are a number of questions that influence whether a shopper completes a transaction, and all of those attributes revolve around knowledge. What products are available? What products are on offer? What would be the cost of the transaction? What are my options for delivery? In general, most online businesses do a good job of answering basic questions around the products as the shopper engages in the online journey, navigating the product catalog and working through the checkout process. The needs that are harder to address for the shopper are those that are less concerned with product specifics and more concerned with deciding whether the transaction met their needs and delivered value.

Toms deploys Oracle Commerce platform with the help of Deloitte

Toms — the company that gives a pair of its shoes or provides eye care to a person in need for every corresponding purchase — has deployed the Oracle Commerce platform to support its rapid business growth and international expansion.

“Toms is changing daily to meet new challenges,” said Hilda Fontana, VP global Web development, Toms. “Oracle Commerce immediately enables our team to better serve a variety of international markets. We know Oracle has the flexibility and scalability to meet the demands of our growing business.”

Toms is using Oracle Commerce as part of a strategic initiative to deliver its “One for One “charitable message to new markets and support global demand for an expanding product line that is constantly refreshed with new colors and styles.

The Oracle platform helps Toms personalize the customer experience by delivering relevant content and recommendations to customers, providing a faster, easier checkout and a more visual, content-rich shopping experience with integrated ratings and reviews.  

It also enables Toms’ business users to have better control over the customer experience by allowing them to target promotions, personalize content, customize search results and recommendations, and update product information across multiple sites on the fly.

Deloitte, a Diamond level member in Oracle PartnerNetwork, helped Toms to leverage the full functionality of the Oracle Commerce solution while launching its first ecommerce site for Toms Netherlands in just seven months. Throughout the implementation, Deloitte worked side-by-side with Toms’ staff in a “train the trainer” approach that prepared the company to begin immediately moving its U.K., U.S., and Canada sites to the Oracle platform.

“Toms is rapidly evolving and growing their digital presence globally and the Oracle Commerce solution helps provide Toms with the ability to offer leading commerce capabilities on a global, flexible, scalable platform,” said Belinda McConnell,  principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP.
