Carglass® opts decisively in favour of The Reference

Carglass®, leader in the repair and replacement of car windows, is joining forces with the Ghent digital agency The Reference to create a new website for the Belgian and Luxembourg market.

The updated digital channel, that occupies a prominent position in its customer contacts, is designed to help achieve the ambitious Carglass® objectives now and in the years to come. Customer experience will play a central role in the new website to be launched later this year, which is precisely why Carglass® chose The Reference.

outside-carglassCarglass®, which has long done everything possible to ensure an excellent customer experience, is also opting for a new underlying platform with this new website. The aim is both to raise the brand experience to a higher level for its customers and at the same time exponentially increase the possibilities available to Carglass® staff who will be working with the new website.

The Reference is building the website on the powerful Sitecore Experience Management Platform. This user-friendly, stable environment will offer the Carglass® marketers optimal content management flexibility to create convincing online experiences for visitors. Moreover, permanent monitoring will ensure that the functionality which customers can use to schedule an appointment is available at all times. Clearly a crucially important factor for Carglass® during the decision-making process. After all, customers who have suffered a broken windscreen need help as quickly as possible.

The full responsive website will ensure an excellent experience irrespective of the device (desktop/laptop, tablet or smartphone) that a customer uses when contacting Carglass® to schedule a repair. The new website is to be hosted on Microsoft Azure with managed services and 24/7 support from The Reference. Finally, this project will also involve extensive work on in-depth Google Analytics integration and dashboards to constantly monitor and further optimise the effectiveness of the web pages.

Pieter Moons, head of Digital Marketing at Carglass®, explains why The Reference is the right partner: “During the expert preliminary process, we were convinced by the agency’s extremely professional approach. A thorough knowledge of the chosen Customer Engagement Platform Sitecore was a very important factor for us. As a Platinum partner, The Reference clearly had the most experience, quality and expertise here. We were looking for more than just a technical partner, and that’s what we found in The Reference. As well as building a new online environment, with its results-oriented approach The Reference will be able to assist us as we apply our customer experience and engagement criteria to all digital channels.”
