It is almost unanimous that the corporate scenario has changed in the last few years, mostly thanks to the advancement of solutions aimed at the digital transformation of processes. Among the important changes and benefits, customization takes a prominent place, as a decisive point for building productive relationships between companies and customers. But do you know, deep down, what is the concept behind that expression? And why is it a priority issue for the corporate world?

Without a doubt, providing quality services is a fundamental requirement. However, today’s sales professionals need to go further. Consumers are generally more aware and attuned to tools that match their characteristics. The e-commerce sector, a segment that, according to a survey conducted by Worldpay from FIS, should achieve a sales growth of 95% in Brazil, in the projections until 2025, appears as a welcome example for us to diagnose the weight of a customized platform.

Definition and Variations of Adaptation

Originating from the expression “custom made”, customization can loosely be attributed to the act of making something personalized, with exclusive elements and own specifications, always according to the preferences and needs of the recipient. Its purpose is to provide a unique experience to users. In the field of online sales, this is proven through projects developed according to the request, with innovations and peculiarities, in order to put all the goals set by the contractor into action.

It is worth mentioning that there are different levels of customization. In short, their models differ depending on the purpose represented by the project. Because it’s a very flexible process, it’s a trend that can help a company meet the demands of its target audience, establishing an environment of total authenticity — which in turn increases new client acquisition and loyalty.

Adaptation is accepting promising opportunities

To turn theory into reality, it is essential to use software that implements a sales system with a differentiated modus operandi, presenting routines designed precisely to avoid generic and impersonal policies.

From the user’s perspective, it will be possible to count on an optimized platform, with a unique design and features oriented towards the user experience. Another extremely important point is stability. After all, by adopting a robust and reliable solution, the commercial department will be able to work with the space of cyber security, with protected transactions, maintenance and support, with personalized support, to ensure that no obstacle breaks the interactivity or disrupts the purchase journey.

We conclude the article with examples of customization for brands that want to explore what is most transformative in Brazilian e-commerce, since customization is a very attractive possibility to attract and retain customers, creating beneficial connections for all parties involved.
