A1 Slovenia's Liveshop Increases Sales Performance by 19% with giosg

A1 Liveshop hits the ground running by achieving a 24% online conversion rate and surpassing their sales targets by offering immersive customer experiences and quality live support.


The challenge🕵️

A1 Slovenia faced the challenge of finding effective ways of enhancing and delivering an advanced user experience to all its customers.

They wanted to streamline their business processes and provide exceptional experiences at their physical stores and online.

A1 conducted a customer survey to address this challenge, revealing valuable insights.

The survey results indicated that customers want to view devices, compare them, and access critical product information before making purchase decisions.

This feedback highlighted the importance of providing comprehensive information and facilitating informed customer choices not only in stores but also on websites.


The goal ⭐️

A1 Slovenia had three main goals when going into the project:

  • Omnichannel experience: The LiveShop was one of the crucial efforts in their aim to combine all sales channels into a seamless "omnichannel" experience, integrating telephone sales, online sales, and hybrid approaches

  • Expanded customer reach to attract new visitors through their new digital sales channel

  • Sales network optimization: A1 sought to optimize their entire sales network, improving efficiency and coordination across channels to enhance overall sales performance.


The solution 🔑

To meet the challenge, A1 upgraded its online shopping experience by implementing giosg's live selling solution.

This innovative addition allowed A1's online customers to engage in real-time, one-to-one conversations with A1's sales staff while browsing their website.


Customers can now see our products, have a live conversation with one of our sales representatives, and go through the buying process from their living rooms."


The project was a significant stride to enhance A1'a sales team's capabilities. They provided training to the entire sales staff to ensure the team could deliver an exceptional user experience across channels.


”I’m positive our A1 Liveshop will become the biggest digital shop in our retail network”

Matjaz Vracko, Residential Sales Director


The giosg x A1 Liveshop quickly became a primary sales channel, especially during the impact of the pandemic, by offering an online experience that closely resembled an in-store retail experience.
