Delhaize are a leading Belgian grocer operating supermarkets, convenience stores and ecommerce across Belgium and Luxembourg. Delhaize were looking to explore how chatbot capabilities could enhance the wine-buying experience for their online customers as part of their digital growth plans for the wine category.
In a matter of weeks, we identified a set of user needs and target customer segment for the MVP chatbot, and created a user flow to guide customers through their wine selection journey. The chatbot is now live on the Delhaize site, driving engagement and wine conversion.
To understand how a chatbot could drive real engagement, we rapidly immersed ourselves in primary and secondary research across the wine purchasing journey. We met with wine experts, visited local specialists, explored online forums and more in order to ensure that our solution focused on solving real customer needs.
With the ambition of quickly understanding if and how a chatbot could add value to the wine purchasing journey, our goal was to move fast to enable a quick launch. Our MVP design - informed by rapid user and market research - focused on a set of commonly identified wine purchasing missions. Now live, the chatbot provides a platform from which Delhaize can continue to innovate, informed by real user feedback from the in-market MVP.
