Direct to Consumer Strategy Services
Reimagining customer engagement and expanding revenue
Innovation in going "direct-to-consumer" (sometimes abbreviated DTC or D2C) is about reimagining customer engagement and driving new revenue. As more and more brands adopt a direct-to-consumer business model, it is no longer considered innovative to just make the transition alone. Your specific approach to direct-to-consumer technology and the customer experience you deliver is where the most innovation happens — and where Productive Edge thrives in elevating your business to another level.
When one thinks of direct-to-consumer services, one usually thinks of consumer packaged goods (CPG) and retail. However, we’re delivering the benefits across industries — from insurance and car rentals and genetic testing to healthcare products and services. Our track record of enabling clients to successfully pivot to a direct-to-consumer model includes healthcare, financial services, CPG and insurance companies. Plus it goes beyond ecommerce to the application of data and CDP architecture, AI and machine learning, UX design and digital operations.
