Insight

Searching for a gift can take the fun out of giving

Finding the perfect gift, delivered quickly and within budget, is typically a long and arduous journey — even for 1-800-Flowers.com’s customers. To personalize and streamline this journey, the company wanted to ensure that the right flowers, chocolates and fruits were presented for every special occasion.

Idea

A better experience through cognitive personalization

GWYN (Gifts When You Need), the first-in-category Watson™ Gift Concierge, was launched to help consumers find exactly what they’re looking for: the right gift for the occasion to deliver a smile. Fueled by IBM Watson®, GWYN cultivates that one-to-one relationship, learning from how customers are interacting with her and adjusting to know what best to serve each customer from the 1-800-Flowers family of products.

Impact

Give it up for GWYN: Driving higher sales and brand loyalty

Through GWYN, 1-800-Flowers was able to seamlessly showcase various product attributes and their relevance to each customer. An AI shopping experience and relationship increased the number of 1-800-Flowers’ return customers and increased the company’s revenue over the previous year.
