About Boll & Branch
Founded in 2014 in Summit, New Jersey, Boll & Branch is proud to offer ethically and sustainably-sourced, luxurious bedding, bath, and home goods, as well as a line of high-end mattresses. As a direct-to-consumer eCommerce retailer, the fast-growing, venture-backed startup is committed to matching its high-quality products with superior customer service at every stage of the buyer journey.
Committed to its customers, Boll & Branch wanted to put unexpected delivery issues to rest. The logistics team used a Transportation Management System (TMS) to monitor whether or not shipments reached customers on-time, but spent hours manipulating the TMS reports trying to piece together large sets of data in an effort to find trends.
Instead, customers continued to call in citing that their packages had not been delivered, or were damaged, making customer care queues rise, and increasing costly return-to-sender exceptions. Boll & Branch wanted to set its agents, customers, and products up for success. Even more, as a fast-growing brand, the team worried about peak season — they needed a way to integrate their order feed with their delivery data, and they needed to solve delivery issues in real-time, and at scale.
The Convey platform is really easy to use, and it’s easy to filter for exceptions. It gives us total clarity and visibility into what’s going on with our packages, and we’re excited to use the built-in automation to understand how higher volume affects our customers during peak.Anthony Curreri Senior Logistics Manager, Operations at Boll & Branch
The Logistics and Customer Care teams also used Convey to connect to customers at scale. The brand set up new tracking pages and customizable alerts to let customers know when orders would arrive and reduced WISMO calls by 30.8% overall, and reduced customer support tickets by 17.4% during peak season.
Boll & Branch also unlocked additional revenue from their tracking page, a 3.31% conversion rate from click to new purchase, and the brand looks forward to using Convey Discover to detect bottlenecks impacting multiple shipments and further optimize its last mile shipping network.
