Mantra Group's innovative and rigorous marketing efforts drive a substantial
volume of traffic to their website, but meaningfully engaging such a vast
quantity of prospects and customers and achieving high conversion rates was
proving to be a challenge. The Group decided to implement LivePerson solutions
with two main goals: to provide an exceptional experience for web visitors,
and to improve booking completion rates and online revenue across its three
brands: Peppers Retreat, Mantra Hotels and BreakFree Hotels. Mantra Group was
the first accommodations provider in Australia and New Zealand to implement
LivePerson chat solutions.
"Mantra Group strives to offer the best customer experience possible at every
touch point, and we realized that by working with LivePerson, we could provide
a more personalized and seamless digital journey for our growing volume of
visitors," said Luke Jamieson, Head of Online for Mantra Group. "Since we've
implemented LivePerson's chat and content targeting capabilities, we've seen a
significant increase in revenue as well as above industry average customer
satisfaction rates. We're excited to continue working with LivePerson to
provide the effortless and innovative experience we know our customers
By leveraging LivePerson's intelligence platform, Mantra Group is able to
detect when a customer is in need of real-time assistance during the booking
process, and proactively invite them to chat with a live agent, ensuring
successful completion and ultimately, more sales.
Using the same innovative platform, Mantra Group also implemented LivePerson's
content targeting solution, allowing the Group's marketing team to easily
deploy highly- segmented and automated campaigns. For example, visitors are
offered relevant content or complementary offers based on location,
preferences, or history, in order to incentivize booking, deliver a more
personalized touch, and prevent abandonment.
Mantra Group's online division has produced exceptional results using
LivePerson solutions, including:
oImproved customer experience: Customer satisfaction amongst Mantra Group's
customers is 85 percent, compared to an industry benchmark of 80 percent
oIncreased conversion rates: On average, Mantra has experienced that its
visitors are over six times more likely to book if they interact with a
live chat agent than compared with the average self-serving customer;
targeted online campaigns have produced a 40 percent lift in conversions.
oIncreased revenue: Since running LivePerson solutions, Mantra Group has
seen a 5 percent increase in total revenue performance, exceeding its
target for the financial year
"Mantra Group is a true leader in its industry-- willing to embrace
LivePerson's latest intelligent engagement technologies in order to deliver a
superior digital customer experience," said Dustin Dean, VP of APAC,
LivePerson. "Their program has yielded consistently high levels of customer
satisfaction and impressive revenue performance, which is a testament to their
focus on innovation and strong commitment to customers."
