Founded in North London in the 1940s, River Island is now one of the UK and Ireland’s largest fashion retailers. An icon of the British high street, it operates in more than 300 stores globally as well as ecommerce platforms. They are known for their stylish, affordable fashion.
Despite its large high-street presence, 40% of River Island’s revenue is made from online sales, meaning that ecommerce is critical to the brand’s continued success. To create seamless experiences across all their physical locations and online platforms, River Island needed a tool that was capable of generating automated and omnichannel promotions.
They needed a solution that:
Integrated easily into their composable tech stack
Generated personalized promotions
Delivered automated and omnichannel promotions
Could run rich campaigns especially on Black Friday & Boxing Day
River Island’s original commerce platform was built as part of a monolith architecture, being customized slowly over 15 years. Following their decision to migrate to a MACH architecture (Microservices, API-first, Cloud-native, and Headless), they selected partners that offered best-of-breed services. They didn’t just want a tech vendor — they wanted a business partnership to work closely with their product team.
Working with Talon.One as their promotion partner, River Island was powered to create targeted and flexible promotions across sales channels while focusing on their core functionalities.
"We have confidence that promotions are something that we don't even think about during Black Friday or Boxing Day. We got the confidence and assurances from Talon.One that they can work at enterprise scale."
