Critizr tech powers new Monoprix Esprit Marché service

French retailer Monoprix has partnered with Critizr on a new VIP customer relationship programme.

As part of an overhaul of the Monoprix M’ account programme, the brand has launched an Esprit Marché service, which is accessible only to top customers, and run directly by store managers through the Critizr Connection platform. 

This allows customers to message and talk directly on a one-to-one basis with their local branch, giving store managers the capability to share offers, exclusives and one-off promotions.

Nicolas Hammer, CEO and Co-Founder, Critizr, pictured above, says: “Conversational commerce is nothing new and has been present in the world of e-commerce for a long time.”

“However, that’s not the case when it comes to physical stores, and connecting store teams to their customers out with the physical store environment has always been a challenge.”

He adds: “This innovation is a dynamic and very exciting way to start moving stores towards a solution. It is transforming the roles of thousands of employees on the shop floor and revolutionising the way they communicate with and sell to customers.”

“And it’s worth it because the ability to create an ultra-personalised, conversational shopping experience is what will really transform the fortunes of our leading retail brands in the future.”
