Solution overview

At the core of the Bunches operation sits Experian’s address validation solution, which is embedded in their e-commerce website and CRM system. The solution, powered by authoritative postal data from Royal Mail, quickly captures accurate and complete addresses for their customers in the UK, helps customers to complete their online orders quickly, and ensures that addresses entered are valid. 

Bunches also use Experian’s Mosaic, a cross-channel consumer classification system, to help them to identify specific target segments to enhance their marketing efforts. 

Precise targeting helped drive new customer recruitment from a different profile segment, with 80% of the orders from their targeted inserts coming from new customers, up from 49% in other titles.
