How do product recommendations work

 

Machine Learning & AI engine SALESmanago Copernicus uses complex algorithms to analyze transactional and behavioral data and prepares product recommendations for the store customers. Not only the specific customer behaviour is analyzed, but also the correlations between other users who have bought the same product, for instance. The data about transactions of other customers’ with similar interests makes it possible for the algorithm to forecast which products may hold the attention of the purchaser in the future. Thus, the customer receives fully personalized product recommendations that are not only based on simple connections between products, such as in the case of the majority of limited recommendation engines. The products are selected on the basis of an advanced association conducted by the algorithm that also takes into account the behaviour of other users. In this manner, it is possible to prepare recommendations for anonymous or inactive users as well, even though there are only basic data available (for example, the products viewed), because in these cases the system will use the information about other customers with a similar profile.

 

This breakthrough technology, one of the most advanced in the industry, has a great impact on sales and company’s revenue increase by adapting marketing activities to the preferences of every customer. Additionally, artificial intelligence is in constant self-development process, so the predictions and recommendations become more precise with time. Advanced personalization of marketing communication in real time makes the recipients more willing to buy products recommended for them. Moreover, the marketing messages compatible with their interest are welcomed by the customers, as they perceive them as much more useful than bulk mailings. The possibility of purchase rises significantly and the customer value increases.

AI Recommendations, the new SALESmanago Copernicus analytical dashboard is a tool that allows unleashing the full potential of artificial intelligence module.

  • Most frequently bought after visit other – based on the product currently viewed by the customer on the website, other products bought by customers that also viewed the item are recommended;
  • Most frequently viewed together – the products that other customers viewed with the currently viewed item are recommended;
  • Most frequently bought together – this type of recommendations is frequently described as “related products bought by other customers”: the system analyses products bought by the customer, as well as the purchases of other users that bought the same product;
  • Mixed statistics with weight that combines all the mentioned types of recommendations with an additional mechanism that assigns weight to specific actions with an individually set value.
