Expertise Built on Experience

Mobile engagement is a function that should integrate completely with your broader business. Of course, it might be the case that you feel your retail operation has to change to embrace mobile, but they should still align. Starfish 360 has a well-established, tried and tested, highly coherent, technology agnostic, five-stage approach to delivering mobile customer engagement programmes for retailers.

In every case, however, the journey starts with you.

  • What do you want to achieve and why?
  • What's your current position, and what challenges and opportunities do you face?
  • Who are your customers and what will make them take action?
  • What will success look like?

Starfish 360's independent view and unique perspective will help you identify positive steps you can take to use mobile to engage your customers in powerful new ways. You can provide improved service, drive greater loyalty, generate additional revenue, cut costs and achieve strong returns on investment.

Step 1. Business & Market Assessment
