To bridge the gap between businesses and consumersConsumers need a universal platform that will serve as a point of contact for all their interactions with businesses around them, right from product awareness to billing to setup to maintenance to customer service. There is a growing need for remote accessible digitised and consolidated purchase history. Imagine one place where all electronic versions of your receipts, warranty documents and user manuals are simply 'pushed' to after the purchase. Imagine one place where businesses can communicate with you for let's say, placing an order and picking it up at the restaurant, or letting you know when to expect that mail order, or scheduling an appointment for a manicure or even booking a table at a restaurant. Imagine if you can get feeds from your favourite boutique on what's new on their line. Imagine if that place is not your precious personal email inbox. Even better, imagine if it's a web app, or an Android or an iOS app.
To provide context for all business and consumer interactionsConsumers need a platform where they can engage businesses around them. There is a time and place for such engagements which is why email engagement strategies and other forms or intrusive promotional activities are proven to be ineffective and detrimental to the consumer-business relationship simply because emails do not provide the ideal 'context' for commercial interactions. Think of a system where you can receive personalised deals and discounts, or information about a product they might be interested in, all 'in context'. A place where you'll give a damn about what businesses want to tell you. A place where you won't miss out on juicy deals because you didn't feel like going through commercial emails in the middle of a work day. A place where only the relevant deals will come to you.
To deliver a personalised experience to billions of consumersConsumers need a personalised and uniform experience across all channels of a business. These can be in the form of personalised deals and discounts, context-aware services, easy payment services, personalised shopper engines, and analysis into their own shopping behaviour. They need the world's marketplace in their palms. They need to know if there is a store around them which is selling that new line from Ralph Lauren. They need to know who is selling that new Chanel perfume and for how much. They need to know if someone can service their broken Bose speakers. They need an app which is aware of exactly what they are looking for and does the research work for them.
