In an era where the most paramount value for customers is “what benefits or extras will I get,” retailers must consistently bring their A-game. For a large Nordic retailer like REMA 1000, this challenge is met by leveraging the power of NIQ Activate to pinpoint the perfect offer for each customer, based on real data. Martin Vahtera, Vice President of Digital Marketing, Content, and Sales at REMA 1000, likens this process to “finding the needle in the haystack.”

The Complexity of Personalized Retail Experience

Creating personalized offers for every customer in a retail chain while ensuring an exceptional digital and on-site customer experience is no simple task. In the Nordic region, where thoughts of cold climates, mythical gods, and winter sports typically dominate the imagination, Vahtera and REMA 1000 focus on customer loyalty, customer experience, and omnichannel personalization through data analysis and measurements.

This entails not only gathering massive amounts of data but also developing a platform to extract retail insights, analyzing it, and transforming it into actionable customer engagements. These insights then need to be applied to enhance the shopping experience for customers in both digital and physical locations while driving revenue and sales growth.

NIQ Activate: The Perfect Solution for Personalization and Quality

REMA 1000’s mission is to provide the lowest prices and best quality items every day. NIQ Activate assists in this mission by identifying the ideal offer for each customer among millions of data rows, boasting a high statistical likelihood of success. Vahtera emphasizes the platform’s ease of use, which allowed REMA 1000 to get started with minimal technical complications.

Furthermore, the data-driven platform, with feature-rich capabilities enables REMA 1000 to refine its personalized offers on a weekly basis, optimizing the results for every customer. Its advanced analytical tools and algorithms empower REMA 1000 to dig deep into customer behavior, preferences, and purchase patterns, transforming raw data into personalized marketing strategies.

This level of personalization not only increases customer satisfaction but also leads to higher customer retention rates, as shoppers feel valued and understood by the brand. In turn, this boosts the company’s bottom line, fostering growth and expansion.
