With the advent of fully functional mobile based shopping websites, most brands are seizing the opportunity to capture customers who spend more time on their mobile devices than a computer. Mobile applications are a lot more fun and interactive on the iPhone and android phones. This is probably due to their technologies surpassing that of RIM Blackberry phones. iPhone and Android users definitely reap the benefits of having more interactive websites and e-commerce applications at their fingertips. Sephora is the latest store to develop a fully functioning mobile application for iPhone. It’s the ultimate beauty on the go application that gives users the entire Sephora inventory as well as interactive ratings, creating wish-lists, GPS enabled store locator and so much more, enhancing the user experience.
“We recognized early on that our clients are increasingly accessing our site from their smartphones, and set out to provide them with a seamless experience no matter how they shop with us,” said Julie Bornstein, Senior Vice President of Sephora Direct.
“Leveraging technology never before used in the beauty sector, the new SephoraMobile gives our clients one central point of connection with Sephora, offering not only extensive information about all of our products but also providing personalized recommendations and access to their own beauty purchasing history to make shopping at Sephora more exciting and convenient than ever before.”
Sephora.com has long been the leading beauty site on the web and SephoraMobile is now a fully functional extension to what is offered online. The new mobile site gives Sephora clients the ultimate shopping tool kit, with exceptional new features and extra perks for the large and growing base of Beauty Insiders, Sephora’s highly popular loyalty program.
