Zalora to Elevate Customers’ Online Shopping Experiences with Optimizely

Singapore – February 15, 2022 – Optimizely announced that Zalora, Southeast Asia’s leading online fashion and lifestyle ecommerce site, has selected Optimizely’s platform to power their tech experimentation efforts moving forwards into 2022.

With over 3000 top international and local brands and designers on their platform, Zalora is Asia’s largest fashion retailer. The ecommerce giant started with clothing and accessories and have since branched out to other categories such as luxury, sports, beauty, and home & living.

Zalora understands that delivering impactful customer experiences is key to long-term loyalty and retention. Together with Optimizely, they are looking to ramp up to their experimentation efforts—to further improve their UX and increase personalisation throughout the customer life cycle.

Previously, Zalora used various tools with varying degrees of success but with the achievements their growth hacking team have seen, they will leverage Optimizely’s Experimentation platform to formalise experimentation as the Business as Usual (BAU) way of working—ultimately growing from one team using experimentation to fifteen.

Optimizely’s solution has proven effective with millions of experiences served on the platform every day. With the ability to rapidly experiment, test every idea, and increase personalisation across the customer journey, Zalora will be able to deliver personalised digital experiences to every one of their customers for increased conversions and retention. 

“2021 saw Zalora’s first push into experimentation to become more data-informed. We launched a ‘growth hacking team’ as a proof of concept to demonstrate that this way of working can add value—and we exceeded expectations for that year,” said Liam Hutchinson, Group Director of Product at Zalora. “Our goal now with Optimizely is to build on that effort, move experimentation beyond the pilot phase and start integrating it into the business.”

Optimizely will be vital in the first phase as experimentation is activated and scaled across Zalora’s teams. The platform will provide Zalora with the ability to measure success, establish operational goals, conduct fast A/B testing, and provide a clear direction on how to better drive the user journey as they roll out new projects and experiences this year.

“You’ll struggle to work in the product industry and not hear about Optimizely. This is a gold standard product and a great partnership that we are excited to leverage to its fullest capability,” said Liam. “The platform will be a key enabler in improving our customer engagement and offering more value for increased loyalty and retention.”

“We are proud to work with a leading online retailer like Zalora. The partnership is still in its early phases of implementation, but I am confident, with the support they have provided us, we can help Zalora create great digital experiences that further extend their lead in the ecommerce space,” said Paul North, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific, and Japan at Optimizely.
