Frey Reduces Churn by 35% and Improves Customer and Merchant Experience vs. Their Custom Solution
The average American family cycles through 300 loads of laundry each year. Frey puts a little magic in this tedious task by delivering exceptional laundry products in a variety of scents — made from all natural ingredients. But their impact doesn’t stop in the laundry room: this mission-driven brand plants a tree for every order to make the world a better place.
Frey’s in-house subscription solution led to customer and employee frustration, resulting in higher churn rates. While committed to making laundry even more convenient with their product subscription program, existing management solutions fell short of their high standards. In response, they decided to build a custom solution in-house, which proved to be a significant and ongoing challenge.
The solution required extensive backend maintenance, consuming a large portion of internal development resources. On the frontend, customers struggled with managing their subscriptions, leading to a surge in support tickets and churn rates.
In addition, the lack of integrations with other key backend systems like Gorgias and Klaviyo led to missed acquisition and retention opportunities. The absence of revenue forecasting made efficient inventory planning almost impossible.
