Rent the Runway Chooses Maxymiser to Optimize the Online Customer Experience

The Fashion World's Hottest Start-Up Embraces Multivariate Testing and Behavioral Targeting

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Feb 28, 2012) - RenttheRunway.com, the top online destination for designer dress and accessory rentals, has teamed up with Maxymiser, the global expert in multivariate testing, personalization and optimization solutions, to conduct comprehensive website testing.

Applying the Netflix business model to high-end fashion, Rent the Runway allows mainstream consumers to rent designer dresses and accessories at just 10 to 15% of the retail price. Members simply select a dress from www.renttherunway.com and pick a delivery date. After the event, the user repacks the dress in pre-paid packaging and drops it in any mailbox, no dry cleaning necessary. Rent the Runway's first tests with Maxymiser will look to optimize the designs of the brand's product pages.

"At Rent the Runway we are always listening to our members feedback and making improvements to the usability of our site," said Jennifer Hyman, Rent the Runway CEO and co-founder. "Partnering with Maxymiser will allow us to quickly test and implement the optimal site experience, while also segmenting our customers in the most effective way. Those who are shopping for prom will have a different site experience than those shopping for a formal spring wedding."

Maxymiser's unique managed services and OneTouch™ integration platform allow Rent the Runway to manage all website tests and changes without the need for coding and back-end work, leading to low cost of ownership, incredibly fast delivery to market and the ability to simultaneously launch multiple test campaigns. To begin, Rent the Runway will employ MaxTEST™ (A/B and multivariate testing solutions) and MaxSEGMENT™ (behavioral targeting/segment discovery).

"Rent the Runway is truly an innovative and progressive online business," said Mark Simpson, Founder and President of Maxymiser. "Not only will we help them deliver a better online customer experience, but we can also help them better understand who their customer is based on certain shopping criteria like previous searches, rentals, time of day, demographics, geography, and more. At the end of the day, when you know your customers better, you're able to serve your customers better. It's as simple as that."
