How EVEREVE improved the return experience for their customers.

With over 93 boutiques and a rapidly increasing online presence, EVEREVE is well-known for creating a unique shopping experience for its customers.

How Evereve improved the return experience for their customers.

EVEREVE was founded as the retail solution that makes shopping for casual current fashion trends pleasant and easy. With over 93 boutiques and a rapidly increasing online presence, EVEREVE is well-known for creating a unique shopping experience for its customers.

 

In 2020, when COVID-19 compelled consumers to buy online, e-commerce sales went up by 11% (according to a study by McKinsey), and without in-store fitting rooms, the inevitable occurred: the growth was directly linked to an increase in returned items.

Return rates on physical goods are typically between 8% and 10%, but the overall average return rate for online purchases is 30%, with rates as high as 50% in some apparel industries, according to Shopify’s Fashion Industry Report.

 

EVEREVE was well aware that current rates are unsustainable, and while many merchants consider high returns as a necessary evil, EVEREVE invested their efforts in reimagining returns for the company.

Business Challenges

EVEREVE started out by relying on manual returns since the technology to implement a self-service and automated process wasn’t accessible at the time. Because of this, they couldn’t differentiate between in-store and online returns or see what was being returned and why. This made it hard to address any issues with their return journey.

Evereve Business Challenges

The lack of visibility throughout the RMA process was resulting in a variety of problems:

  1. Limitations in data availability limited the businesses’ capacity to identify and address the primary causes of returns.
  2. A lag time in returns led the way to significant markdowns for the merchandise being resold.
  3. There was a lack of accountability for returns management, as well as no synergy across key teams.
  4. Customer service representatives were swamped with support tickets regarding returns

 

“The ambition was to lower the friction and turn returns

in their favor by providing a self-service, easy return process that ultimately increased sales and customer loyalty.”

The potential of data to revolutionize return management and modernize this often tedious process for many businesses is enormous.

EVEREVE discovered that the most effective way to turn returns into future opportunities is by combining the right information with predictive analytics and automation, which have enabled them to cut down additional shipping costs and reduce the number of redundant touches by optimizing the optimal route from the start of the return.
