The scalable marketplace for Mercedes-Benz

The market for connected cars, now worth billions of dollars, is of increasing relevance for automakers wishing to maintain a competitive edge. Mercedes-Benz recognized the significance of this emerging technology early on and together we set out to develop the Mercedes me Store app. As a mobile marketing and sales channel, the product will act as the central marketplace for all future Connected Services. The app enables customers to book vehicle-based services flexibly and directly. For product and market expansions efforts we focused on scalability, thereby laying the technological groundwork for a sustainable business and sales model.

Maximum relevance, increased revenue

To make sure customers locate the right offers on the proper channels, we closely integrated the product with other Mercedes apps. What’s more, we developed a recommendation system for both Mercedes-Benz as well as their ever-increasing range of partner offers. A win-win that benefits all parties: The personalized app provides customers with individual recommendations based on key criteria such as their purchasing and mobility history. Moreover, contextual factors like the user’s geographic location are also leveraged to present highly relevant offers. With the help of upselling and cross-selling measures, this detailed level of targeting acts to increase revenue.

With its premium design and its first-class user experience the Mercedes me Store app adds value to the Mercedes-Benz brand.

To create a first-class user experience, we merged the elegance of the brand with state-of-the-art design principles. An incredibly exciting task.

Simple use, higher customer loyalty

For connected cars, one of the most critical moments of the customer experience occurs when a vehicle-based service is set to expire. In the past, many customers became aware of these pending deactivations only after they had expired. Wide-spread frustration and cumbersome service renewal efforts on the part of the customer were the result. By tapping into EO’s tried-and-tested kit of CX best practices, we set out to make this pivotal episode a more transparent, convenient, and enjoyable experience for the user. Prior to the service’s expiration, the user receives the option to renew the booked service. From there, just a few taps on their device is all that’s needed to renew—all from the comfort of their own vehicle. A process as seamless and simple as a purchase from Amazon. And one that leads to increased customer satisfaction and retention.

Premium UX, top-notch conversion

Quick and easy entry and intuitive use are of paramount importance for our products. To ensure for an optimal experience, the Mercedes me Store app has been seamlessly integrated into the well-known Mercedes-Benz user experience environment. Whether browsing via mobile devices or scrolling through the online or in-car stores, the result is a highly personalized user experience across devices and platforms. The checkout process in particular showcases what we mean by quick use: In just three simple steps, the user is guided from product selection to purchase confirmation.
