Data driven at its core
Sprint embraces a culture of measurement, analytics, testing, and optimization to continuously enhance its customer experience and deliver increasing value to its customers. The company has developed a variety of unified campaigns and measurement programs to improve sales, operations, and services across its multiplatform, omnichannel environment.
“We knew we needed to improve measurement and analytics to see exactly where we could enhance our efforts,” says Lori Mabe, manager of Digital Testing/Optimization and Personalization at Sprint. By understanding its audience, Sprint optimized its digital experiences and better engaged its customers, increasing customer satisfaction, site conversion, and revenue.
From buy-in to deployment
Sprint partnered with Adobe Customer Solutions to structure an execution and adoption plan to enable Sprint to implement Adobe solutions, including Adobe Analytics and Adobe Target. Adobe Customer Solutions helped Sprint overcome initial implementation challenges and to gain executive sponsorship allowing Sprint to expand its digital marketing toolkit with the goal of accelerating time-to-market for new and optimized campaigns.
“Adobe Customer Solutions provided a clear assessment of where we were on the maturity curve with our digital testing and optimization capabilities and helped to align our implementation, expectations, and roadmap,” says Mabe. “Together, we also set up several initial tests to garner buy-in from key internal groups.”
Sprint saw a significant opportunity to improve both its marketing agility and its ability to identify and respond to customer needs. Using capabilities in Adobe Analytics and Adobe Target, the company saw where it could accommodate a growing internal demand for digital insights, close gaps in marketing functionality, and support a more disciplined testing practice built on measurable data.
To begin, the Sprint team used Adobe Analytics to identify the highest-traffic, highest-value pages for optimization. Then on those pages, the company established the ability to capture anonymous behavioral information using Adobe Target—including clicks, orders, and other activities, as well as containers to drop alternative content, navigation, and experiences for A/B and multivariate tests.
“Once we implemented Adobe Target on our key pages, it streamlined how we could deliver tests, measure results, and initiate change,” says Mabe. “Integration between Adobe Target and Adobe Analytics also enhanced how we communicate internally from test planning to result sharing.”
