PERQ is now the exclusive seller of the Who’s Up product and promises to empower home furnishing retailers with the tools they need to convert their increasing volume of web leads into showroom sales.
PERQ’s artificial intelligence-driven online shopping solution is able to boost website conversions for furnishing retailers by helping website visitors make shopping decisions that guide them down the purchase funnel and into showrooms.
PERQ’s interactive, personalized online experiences enable independent home furnishing retailers to compete with big brand online shopping experiences through personalized quizzes, assessments, shopping tools, welcome guides, appointment schedulers and more.
On average, furniture retailers report that adding PERQ to their website increases the time consumers spend on their site 3X, while the average lead lift is 1,646%.
“Increased lead volume makes a CRM tool — something many furniture retailers have not fully embraced — a ‘must have’ for managing leads and sales processes to maximize results,” says Scott Hill, PERQ’s Executive Chairman and Co-founder. “Partnering with Who’s Up, the industry-leading CRM solution, is a natural fit and a win-win for our clients.”
“Since working with Who’s Up, we have been able to manage our sales staff and leads much more effectively. By adding PERQ’s online guided shopping solution to our website, we have now dramatically increased the lead conversion from our website,” said Josh Hudson, President of Sarasota, FL-based Hudson’s Furniture. “I am excited to see a partnership form between these two companies to craft an excellent combined solution that can lead to even better results.”
Who’s Up is a mobile and web-based up-system and contact relationship manager (CRM) designed for home furnishing retailers to manage their in-store sales flow. The software includes rich performance reporting tools to help retailers provide a great customer experience and increase sales conversions.
“Lead follow up is the pain point we’re on a mission to help our clients solve – and teaming with PERQ to enable their online leads to flow directly into our CRM, means we’ll not only be able to better help clients manage their leads but also enable them to monitor and measure performance,” said Brad Eaton, Co-Founder of Who’s Up. “Closing the information gap between online and offline sales processes will give our joint clients an edge over their competition.”
