Maintaining an accessible app with new feature implementations
Lars Lockefeer, Tech Lead, Picnic | Thursday 13:30 - 14:00
At Picnic we’re constantly working towards replacing the traditional grocery shopping experience with a digital alternative. This comes with a unique set of challenges that have never been tackled before. Keeping the Picnic-app accessible is an everlasting challenge. Every newly added feature or improvement requires a design with accessibility in mind.
Using Growth Hacking for enormous growth
Ruben Vermijs, Marketing lead | Thursday 14:10 - 14:40
Picnic makes grocery shopping simple, fun and affordable for everyone. We created our shopping app and assortment together with our customers. How do we ensure that first-time visitors quickly become loyal fans while growing 500% within a year? In order to get to the optimal customer journey, you need to be able to communicate with the right tone of voice. At Picnic, the data is used to determine what to show to the customers. Using A/B split testing, the optimized customer flow can be obtained. Iterations that never stop.
