JCPenney Building

JCPenney know all about quality shopping experiences that keep customers coming back. 

But the last decade has been tougher than ever as shoppers seek out discounts and abandon traditional brands. JCPenney’s response is to deliver quality online, making sure every customer's shopping experience is worth their time, money and effort.  

You can’t do that with out-of-date, one size fits all tech. That’s where CoreMedia Content Cloud comes in. Together, CoreMedia and JCPenney deliver highly effective shopping experiences, through our modern, flexible CMS and personalization tools.   

 

 

Elevated eCommerce using personalization.

Ranging across apparel, home furnishings, jewelry, cosmetics, cookware and more, JCPenney is one of the largest retailers in the US. CoreMedia Content Cloud gives their teams the tools necessary to target customers with highly relevant buying journeys across a huge range of products. 

Customer personas and segmentation is brought into the CMS, as well as new segments created directly inside Content Cloud. Content tagging features allow JCPenney teams to target customers with products and offers. Automated follow-up messages can target customers who drop out of the buying journey to maximize commerce conversions.  

Product and price information is pulled directly into the CMS, so everything is managed from a single tech platform. Nothing is ever out of date or out of sync, whatever the channel. Built-in formatting tools make content production quick and easy across all formats, and preview tools let editors test content across channels and devices.

Personalized content drives engagement. 

More relevant and targeted buying journeys significantly increase customer engagement. This gives JCPenney many more opportunities to make the sale.  

Teams can easily manage and deliver content across all their digital touchpoints from a single technology platform. Creating integrated, cross-channel buying journeys means customers get to choose when and how they want to buy. And all this customer-centric content of course reinforces positive brand engagement and helps build loyalty.  

Getting the right content to the right customers, at the right time, has never been easier for JCPenney. 

Enhancing ecommerce with new channels.

We’re continuing to work with JCPenney, exploring new ways to use our CMS to enhance their e-commerce. They’re building on their digital footprint, adding additional channels to reach new customers. 

Content Cloud is built on a flexible architecture, so it can integrate with any current or new channel JCPenney want to bring into their mix, whether it's point of sale tech, social media or connected devices.

Digital channels

Do you have a well-coordinated, multi-channel presence?

Yes, our content is everywhere all the time! Some is and some isn't. No, our content and data is all over the place.

Content teams

Are your content teams aligned, working together across departments and countries?

Yeah, we're like a well oiled machine! Kind of, but we still waste a lot of effort. No, the left hand doesn't know what the right is doing.

Data tools

Are your content, commerce and customer data tools integrated into a single toolkit?

Yes, we've got everything we need in a single software tool! Not really, we use multiple tools but they're not integrated. Defnitely not, our systems don't talk to each other at all.

Asset management

Is your brand content, product info and customer data all stored in one secure, globally accessible place?

Yes, we've got tight control of all our content and data. Some is and some isn't. No, our content and data is all over the place.

eCommerce

Can you merge brand content with commerce?

Yes, we seamlessly integrate ecommerce with our rich media content. We have commerce and rich content on the same sites, but they're not really integrated. No, our storefronts are completely separate.

Omnichannel marketing

Are your customer experiences seamless across desktop, mobile, apps and all other channels?

Yes, we are everywhere our customers need us to be! We have a good spread of channels, but not exhaustive. No, we focus mainly on desktop websites.

Campaigns

Can you update campaign content and product info across all your sites in minutes?

Yes, we can update our whole web estate at the touch of a button. It's ok, but could be faster. No, it takes an age to update all our sites.

Global control

Do you have global control of your content, with the flexibility to cater for local differences?

Yes, we can localize all day long without compromising global standards. Some control, but could be better. No, our content standards vary with no global oversight.

Personalized content

Can you personalize content so that your customers feel your sites are created just for them?

Yes, our content has the personal touch! Some personalization, but room for improvement. No. What's personalization?

Artificial Intelligence

Are you tapping into the power of artificial intelligence to turbo charge your customer experiences?

Yes, we're right at the leading edge of AI driven personalization! Not quite, but we're making plans. No, we don't trust robots!

Stage 1: Fragmented: Multiple Channels

You’re a digital dinosaur!

You have a beautiful website, but with fragmented digital experiences, you run the risk of extinction.

It’s time to evolve.

Your audiences want a seamless experience, no matter what's happening behind the scenes. When your experience is different or difficult, it’s important to start with the basics, such as cultivating a holistic approach to online digital experiences. Realign your teams, platforms, processes, goals, and metrics around a comprehensive view of the online experience. Focus on the end-to-end customer journey cutting across channels, desktop and mobile.

Stage 2: Integrated: Multiple channels

You’re a fish!

Signs of exciting life are starting to form. Your DX is responsive and adaptive but it’s not quite personalized yet.

Keep swimming!

The integration of your brand content across every touchpoint (website, online store, social media, emails, apps, point of sale) creates immersive experiences. These flagship sites combine content-rich brand experiences with immediate conversion capabilities. Business teams and marketing are closely aligned. However, while the digital experience is responsive and adaptive, it’s not yet personalized.

Stage 3: Instant: Global expansion

You’re a crocodile!

You’re taking it global. Speed and scalability are key and just like a crocodile, you’re fast…but you’re clumsy.

Oh snap!

In this stage, the online digital experience becomes completely dynamic. You need content that is global, yet relevant, with plenty of local insights: Who is the user? Are they using a mobile phone? Is it raining where they are? Is it snowing? If it is, maybe they need warm, waterproof boots. All of this contextualized information creates a better user experience. With one global orchestration, you’re able to adapt everything, in whatever country or language you choose – while keeping turnaround times low. So keep evolving.

Stage 4: Dynamic: Real time personalization

You’re a lion!

You’re reaching more customers in more countries and languages than ever before, and now you’re finally hunting and collecting info with precision.

But you can do more to keep your brand roaring!

As you graduate to the Instant level, you’re able to rapidly update everything - not just in one language and for one country, but in 20 languages and for 100 countries. Speed and scalability are key, driven by the need to roll out global campaigns in all languages and all touchpoints and make updates in minutes or hours, not weeks. But there’s still more to do to reach nirvana.

Stage 5: Immersive: Elevated experiences

You’re Captain Content!

You’ve done it! You have opposable thumbs AND you’re saving the world with your seamless, elevated customer experiences.

You're a superhero in the digital space.

Your digital world and your physical world are blending together in the most complementary way possible. When shoppers visit your store, they’ll be greeted with their pre-selected products. Language changes dynamically depending on country of origin – it's like the whole store was set up just for your one specific customer.

In this final stage, your customer experience is truly immersive and superior, and your flagship store merges your physical and digital world into one, with a truly personalized individual experience.
