"We did an A/B test on autocompletion with Woosmap. For the United Kingdom, we witnessed a significant difference: +24% increase in overall conversion rate and an impressive +35% for new customers, which is substantial!"

Precise geolocation and profitability challenges in the UK Market
The platform wanted to address two major issues by leveraging Woosmap's solutions. The first challenge was profitability, a concern shared by many businesses, especially over the past year.
The second challenge, more specific to Wecasa’s situation, revolved around address recognition. Although the platform was open in both France and the UK, it faced many difficulties in recognizing addresses, particularly in the British market. Thus, Wecasa aimed to improve the profitability of its services and find a more efficient geolocation solution for the United Kingdom.
« There were users who couldn't place orders because their address wasn't recognized. They would enter nearby addresses, and there were many instances where professionals went to the wrong location... Many sessions were canceled because of this. For us, it's really essential to have an address that is as accurate as possible. »
After discovering Woosmap, they decided to give this solution a chance, and the choice proved to be wise, bringing quick results.
A Successful A/B Test
The integration of Localities API and Woosmap Map delivered tangible results for Wecasa. Thanks to an A/B test, they observed a significant increase in their conversion rate in the British market, with a +24% overall rise and a massive 35% increase for new customers. These impressive figures reinforced Wecasa's decision to collaborate with Woosmap to address these issues.
For customers, Woosmap significantly improved their experience by enabling them to find the correct address and accelerate registration through autocompletion, simplifying their ordering process. Moreover, thanks to the new Woosmap mapping, the service area of the desired provider is clearly identifiable.
Professionals also benefited from these improvements, as they reduced session cancellations due to incorrect addresses, enhancing their efficiency and profitability.
"The collaboration between Wecasa and Woosmap proceeded smoothly. The provided documentation was clear and understandable, facilitating the integration of APIs. Interactions with Woosmap's technical support were efficient, with quick responses to any queries." — Anna-Joy Bernard, Product Manager at Wecasa.
