Narvar and Aftership Tracking are two platforms that help track shipments and returns. They gather carrier and order data in one place so retailers can provide a better, more consistent tracking and return experience to their customers.

 

Both systems provide a fantastic post-purchase customer experience to businesses. There are, however, a few important differences to note.

 

While AfterShip has a focus on being user-friendly, offering more visual aids rather than management solutions, being an excellent choice for small-scale businesses, Narvar offers a sophisticated system primarily for enterprises with significant budgets who are looking to implement the Concierge Service.

What are the key elements of a post-purchase experience platform?

Improving customer satisfaction after the sale can lead to a significant drop in support calls. It increases income and loyalty among clients.

 

After a consumer places an order, eCommerce businesses may use platforms like these to improve their experience.

 

A good post-purchase experience platform will also establish the appropriate expectation for the consumer, much like Amazon does on the product page, cart, and checkout, informing consumers exactly when the item will arrive before they place their order.

 

Aftership is not currently able to provide pre-purchase delivery estimates on the Product Page, Cart, and Checkout. On the other hand, Narvar may provide a bespoke service like this, but custom-made services are often quite costly.

 

The features available on each platform differ, but the following are some of the most frequent ones:
