Arbella Insurance Group and Mobiquity Partner to Launch myArbella…

Published

on

From the initial strategy through to the design and build of the digital product, Arbella has kept its users’ needs at the centerpiece of every discussion

Mobiquity, a digital consultancy that designs and delivers compelling digital products and services for the world’s leading brands, has partnered with Arbella Insurance Group, a property and casualty insurance company selling insurance products in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and New Hampshire, to build its new myArbella mobile app.

When customers engage with insurance providers, they want answers and an easy and seamless service process making it important to have the best possible digital platforms accessible. The myArbella app was developed in response to the need for frictionless digital services for insurance customers, allowing them to easily manage their Arbella Insurance Policy on their mobile devices.

Arbella wanted to engage and empower customers to take charge of their insurance journey – making the process easy while also increasing use and enhancing customer loyalty. To achieve this, Arbella partnered with Mobiquity to build a clean and seamless digital process for all customers to easily register, view policy details, access documents, pay bills, manage billing preferences, submit and view claims as well as receive important messages and updates regarding policies.

“It’s been a pleasure partnering with Arbella on its quest to deliver a smooth mobile experience for its customers,” said Andy Norman, co-President of Mobiquity. “From the initial strategy through to the design and build of the digital product, Arbella has kept its users’ needs at the centerpiece of every discussion and I’m confident this will lead to better experiences and more loyal, happy customers.”

Mobiquity leveraged insights from the Mobiquity Friction Report—a proprietary tool that uses artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) to analyze hundreds of thousands of customer reviews on mobile apps, websites, and similar tools — to help Arbella uncover what other insurance companies were doing well with leading apps and where Arbella should prioritize areas of focus for their experience. Building upon existing data and functionality, Mobiquity also used existing functionality and insights from Arbella’s “myArbella” web portal to make the experience as user-friendly as possible.

“Arbella is dedicated to meeting our customers where they are,” said Gayle O’Connell, EVP & CMO at Arbella Insurance Group. “This new mobile app gives our customers easy and convenient access to their insurance policies 24 hours a day. As customer expectations evolve, we are committed to finding ongoing service solutions through innovation and new technology that make Arbella even easier to do business with.”

In addition to $10,000 of flexible capital, Sensual Fashion Boutique will also get access to a network of more than 500 investors, growth teams, agencies, apps, lawyers, and buyers; and data-driven advice designed to help scale and hit new revenue milestones.

“We will now be able to grow brand awareness with strategic advertising,” said Tracey Roulhac, owner of Sensual Fashion Boutique. “Access to Clear Angel’s network of advisors will help us make the best decisions to scale.”

ClearAngel Supports Maman Hippie Brand with $10,000 Investment

Published

“We’re proud to fund Maman Hippie Brand in its mission to inspire free-spirited women to turn their dreams into a reality.” – Andrew D’Souza, CEO and co-founder, Clearco.

Clearco, the world’s largest e-commerce investor and the company revolutionizing the way founders grow their businesses, today announced that its ClearAngel program is funding Maman Hippie Brand, a charitable, woman-owned fashion brand that specializes in ethically-sourced, trendy, and comfortable accessories. ClearAngel gives early-stage founders access to revenue share capital, data-driven advice, and Clearco’s extensive network of apps, agencies, and investors.

Founded in 2019 in Québec by neurodivergent entrepreneur Veronique Ouellet, Maman Hippie Brand was created out of a passionate search for independence from an unfulfilling nine-to-five lifestyle. After traveling to California and falling in love with the free-spirited culture, Ouellet was inspired to capture that essence in a business she was passionate about – while also giving back to eating disorder-focused charities. Though the first few years have been successful, ClearAngel’s funding will allow the brand to expand customer reach and marketing territories.

ClearAngel is one of a few equity-free, flexible capital options for early-stage founders who don’t have the network to raise an angel round or join exclusive accelerators. The program has already funded over 350 companies since its February 2021 launch.

“We’re proud to fund Maman Hippie Brand in its mission to inspire free-spirited women to turn their dreams into a reality,” said Andrew D’Souza, CEO and co-founder, Clearco. “This latest investment speaks to our commitment of fuelling businesses from rarely tapped markets that perform well and do good.”

Supplementary to $10,000 of flexible capital, Maman Hippie Brand also receives access to a network of more than 500 investors, growth teams, agencies, apps, lawyers, and buyers; and data-driven advice designed to help scale and hit new revenue milestones. Maman Hippie Brand plans to leverage this support by expanding its marketing budget and targeting customers through digital channels.

“I’m thrilled ClearAngel is helping scale our business and, ultimately, supporting our mission to motivate women throughout their own personal journeys,” said Veronique Ouellet, Founder, Maman Hippie Brand. “I want to show women that achieving your dreams is possible, and remind them that they have the power to do so.”

Joules Picks Centric PLM™ to Support Growth Ambitions and Bolster…

Joules Picks Centric PLM™ to Support Growth Ambitions and Bolster Sustainability Efforts

Joules Picks Centric PLM™ to Support Growth Ambitions and Bolster Sustainability Efforts

We did see other vendors with broader industry bases but felt the nuances of our processes would be better navigated and supported with a fashion industry expert.

Premium British lifestyle brand Joules has elected to switch to Centric Software®‘s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) platform to increase visibility and awareness in its supply chain, and to provide a central source of truth for product development.

Centric Software provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to plan, design, develop, source and sell products such as apparel, footwear, sporting goods, furniture, home décor, cosmetics, food & beverage and luxury to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.

Joules is a premium lifestyle group which designs and sell branded clothing, footwear, accessories and homeware for the whole family. The company was founded in 1989, when Tom Joule started to sell clothing at a country show in Leicestershire, and today caters to over 1.7 million active customers through its digital platform, retail stores in the U.K., and at country shows and events. The brand also operates internationally in its target markets of the U.S. and Germany, which are served by wholesale partnerships and dedicated websites.

As Joules adjusted to the post-pandemic new normal, the business saw the need to leverage an increased level of agility and transparency across all areas of the business. Increased cost and longer timelines in global freight during the pandemic required that all products were being developed in the most efficient and cost-effective ways possible.

“Joules has and continues to grow very quickly,” says Kellie Hubbard, Senior Program Manager at Joules. “The business is not the same one which originally scoped, and implemented the legacy PLM system we operate currently. We knew that in order to achieve our future growth ambitions, we would need to update this core system, in order to provide our teams with the right tool to support them in producing our future product ranges.”

To achieve their goals of selecting the tools which add the most value, while keeping the customer journey as simple as possible, Joules knew it needed a proven, out-of-the-box PLM solution that wouldn’t require heavy customization. Rather, the business wanted to work with a partner with extensive fashion product development expertise and customer base, in order to ensure industry-standard processes and workflows.

As the ultimate stakeholders, the team who will use the PLM system ranked Centric Software® the highest of all shortlisted vendors during the selection process.

“It was important to us that one system covered as much of the development process as possible,” says Hubbard, “to have that one version of the truth for product data, which is so vital to the product teams and the wider business. We did see other vendors with broader industry bases but felt the nuances of our processes would be better navigated and supported with a fashion industry expert.”

Hubbard continues, “The team at Centric has been hugely supportive throughout the entire process. They fully understand the journey that the brand has been on to date, and the ambitions we have for the future.”

Digital sales now account for 70% of Joules’ overall business. “We think of ourselves as more of a digitally-led platform,” says Nick Jones, CEO of Joules. “Stores remain a key part of our strategy and multi-channel model. They not only drive revenue and customer acquisition but clearly communicate our brand and values. Looking ahead, we see the role of physical sales evolving to support the growth that we expect to generate through digital.”

As a brand heavily inspired by the environment, Corporate Social Responsibility is high on Joules’ agenda as well. The business has set ambitious sustainable materials targets and is looking to achieve new levels of visibility and awareness across the supply chain, thanks to the ability of Centric PLM to interface with systems like TrusTrace, a digital platform for product traceability and supply chain transparency.

Centric PLM™ will help Joules achieve these goals via standardization of workflows, having one version of the truth in product development, and visibility into processes, all within one centralized, online platform. The business expects those features to combine in order to make them more effective and efficient, and ensure the focus remains on creating great products for their customers.

“While we anticipate saving time based on current standards, our plan is to reinvest that time to support future growth,” Hubbard says. “We anticipate the key product development functions to see time savings of approximately 15% across the entire process. From our perspective, the time saving is better expressed as an ability do more, and do better, with the same resources.”

“This is the start of a long, mutually beneficial relationship,” says Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software. “We are flattered that Joules sees Centric as a trusted technology partner in the fashion space and thrilled that we can help them take such positive steps towards environmental sustainability. We look forward to supporting and advising them to derive the greatest possible benefits from our platform.”
