Bambuser Case Study

We were tasked with creating a solution that would allow brands to directly communicate and sell to their customers via live video.

The Challenge

We were tasked with creating a solution that would allow brands to directly communicate and sell to their customers via live video. We quickly realised that one of the biggest challenges was to make sure that products could be bought from the video without integrating the service with the actual e-commerce platforms that the initial customers had. Besides solving this almost impossible problem we also had to design and build both an amazing interactive video player and a well functioning app for the hosts, in as little as 4 months.

The Solution

Our mission was to create an app for the host as well as an interactive video player that could easily be integrated on a customers website. The app for the hosts had to be developed for both Android and iOS in order to support all potential users. The web player had to have a great user interface with a customizable design so it would seamlessly match the customer's own brand. The top priority was to make sure the users understood and appreciated this new way of shopping inside a live video and that the solution actually provided a positive result for the customers in terms of sales and engagement. Inspiration for the user interface came from similar solutions in Asia combined with interfaces similar to Instagram, Twitch and Youtube that users in the West would be more used to.

The Result

We managed to successfully design, build and launch both apps and the interactive video player, including custom skins for NAKD and H&M, within the set time frame. The customers saw that engagement on their websites went up with 6 times, the Add-to-cart rate increased with 4,7 times and they had almost 3 times longer visitor durations on average. With the launch and continued success of Bambusers new Live Video Shopping product, the company value increased with over 1500% in less than a year. We are proud to have been an essential part in setting a new standard by planning, designing and building the future of retail.
