The Challenge

In their endeavour to improve user experience and gain long term trust from its shopper, the team at Cue were seeking to deploy smart technological solutions to improve data quality and the order fulfillment process of its ecommerce store.

The growing volume of online sales was further driving the need to seek consistency and accuracy through automation. There were considerable instances of undeliverable orders due to incorrect and poorly formatted customer addresses leading to customer dissonance.

The team at Cue recognised the requirement for a robust and real-time address verification solution to improve the speed and accuracy of its order delivery process.

The Solution

Cue went to market for a type-ahead address verification solution, incorporating plug-and-play capabilities and scalability features.

In May 2017, Mastersoft was shortlisted as the preferred supplier. Cue trialled Mastersoft’s Harmony Hosted address validation service with the goal of assessing ease of integration and ensuring the customer’s entered address were accurate and consistent with the addresses in the Australia Post Postal Address File (PAF).

After the successful results obtained from the trial, Harmony Hosted was chosen to provide the address verification service that Cue was looking for. The aim of choosing Harmony Hosted was to provide a better customer experience and reduce the number of checkout errors, increasing conversion rates in the process.

Cue chose Mastersoft’s Harmony Hosted based on a variety of factors including address accuracy, ease of setup and customisation capabilities.

Today, Cue uses Harmony Hosted to make its checkout process as smooth as possible by helping customers auto-complete their billing and shipping address as soon as enough identifying information has been provided. Harmony Hosted enables Cue to ensure that addresses are always formatted in the correct way for a given destination.

Most importantly, Harmony Hosted helps Cue customers checkout, ensuring there are no stumbling blocks between them and their purchase.
