London, England -- October 15, 2019 -- Bloomreach Inc, the Digital Experience Platform company, has been selected by digital retailer N Brown to help to provide an optimised, consistent and seamless customer experience across its core brands JD Williams, Simply Be, Ambrose Wilson and Jacamo.

With strong AI and machine learning capabilities, the Bloomreach platform will allow us to put the right products in front of our customers, and ultimately help us to make them look and feel amazing.”

By optimising search results, personalising content, and providing a seamless digital experience, N Brown will continue to enhance their customer proposition.”

Bloomreach technologies layer a personalised front-end experience over powerful back-end transactional functionalities to help drive sales, conversions, and retention. Bloomreach’s AI and machine learning solutions are already used by retailers for efficiency and to reduce the number of abandoned baskets online. The deployment of Bloomreach’s Search and Merchandising solution across N Brown’s brands will begin next year.
