Written by Jill Bosmans in Customer Experience on 28/04/15


In 2015, websites are an important part of every organization's sales and marketing strategies. Over 70% of customers research on the internet before making a purchase, which has a big impact on how websites function today. On 14 April, the Belgian news channel Kanaal Z aired an interview with AMPLEXOR's Sales Manager, Lode Vandermeulen, commenting on the impact that new digital trends have on websites and what we need them to do, but also what we need to expect from hosting partners.

Digital strategy: how to approach personalization on your website?

Written by David Verdonck in Customer Experience on 25/03/15


For as long as I have been working at AMPLEXOR (that would be 9 years this month), personalization has been one of the top requested features, but only in recent times has it become feasible to realise meaningful personalization within projects that have to make do with real world budgets. And by that I mean projects undertaken by companies that are not Amazon or Netflix, who can afford to spend almost infinitely large amounts of money and resources on their bespoke personalization engines.

As web content management systems shifted more and more from pure content management and web publishing towards digital experience management (and thus marketing) solutions, most of them introduced tools for adding personalized content to websites and other digital communication channels. After all, one of the key principles in digital experience management is to put the visitor’s needs and wants in the center of your communication strategy in order to provide each visitor a meaningful customer journey. So in that regard, it is key to tailor the information you provide to the individual you are engaging with.

In this blog post I am going to talk a little about several aspects of personalization based on our real world experiences. In a subsequent blog, I'll discuss personalization and privacy issues.

Digital project planning: 6 signals you may not be on track (part 1)

Written by Dimitri Honlet in Customer Experience on 12/03/15


In each digital project serious problems appear, even though those problems don’t necessarily set up your project to fail. It’s normal that there are ups and downs during your project; if every PM and each team gave up at every setback, no project would ever be completed successfully.

It is important to spot warning signs during a project early on and to react accordingly so the project doesn’t derail. Those warning signs usually surface during normal project activities, but rest assured: a warning sign is just that: a warning sign. It doesn’t mean your project is doomed to fail. If you react to the warning signs correctly and timely, it’s perfectly possible to avert project failure.
