Zurich, Switzerland August 28, 2023Mitto, a leading provider of global omnichannel communications solutions, will be attending Groceryshop, the leading convention for grocery and CPG brands, at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada, on September 19 through 21, 2023.

A pioneer in digital communications, Mitto will share the immense value of mature omnichannel engagement strategies with Groceryshop attendees. Mitto’s recent findings on consumer preferences reveal that CPG and grocery brands must adopt omnichannel communication tactics to meet rising customer demands.

In a post-pandemic world, chat apps and e-commerce have significantly reduced the value of brick-and-mortar stores. Due to social distancing and lockdowns, customers who previously saw D2C and digital purchases as luxuries now prefer or depend on them to obtain essential goods. As such, brand-consumer conversations via social channels and text messages, same-day deliveries, and curbside pickup are now the new normal.

Furthermore, two-thirds of the Gen Z demographic, having social media and text messages as inherent parts of their lives, prefer texting over email during e-commerce interactions.

The shift from in-person to online shopping and brand engagements has spurred rising customer expectations. Today’s shoppers demand prompt communications, speedy deliveries, and cohesive CX across all social channels. With 76% of Americans reporting that poor customer experience is worse than shipment delays, CPG and grocery brands must implement a mature omnichannel strategy to meet customers’ high standards.


Mitto found that compared to businesses with little or no omnichannel methodologies, brands that have adopted complete omnichannel strategies were:

  • 4X more likely to report extremely loyal customers
  • 3X more likely to report the customer experience they deliver deserves an “A”
  • 3X more likely to report significant revenue growth over the past year
  • 2X more likely to respond to customers in real-time or in less than an hour


Omnichannel marketing campaigns tailored to individual customers’ wants and needs foster direct connections and make them feel valued.

Two-way omnichannel communications allow CPG and grocery businesses to deliver personalized experiences across all platforms. 

Leveraging chatbots and automated replies, brands can immediately reply to straightforward inquiries and reduce call center volumes. For complicated questions or concerns, customers will be seamlessly connected to live agents. According to Mitto’s findings, customer support teams that have executed complete omnichannel strategies are over two times more likely to improve self-service and optimize support. Omnichannel communications also alleviate agents’ workload and reduce call center costs.


Communications via digital channels also help grocery and CPG brands overcome the challenges of late deliveries and cart abandonment. Mitto’s research indicates that:

  • 91% of consumers believe that a good customer experience makes waiting for a product bearable
  • Nearly 75% of customers are likely to return an abandoned digital shopping cart when sent an SMS reminder
