Ribble enables hyper-personalized retail experiences with live video shopping

Ribble brings its cycling showroom experience to your living room with Emplifi Live Advisor.

Established in 1897, you could say that Preston-born Ribble Cycles know bikes pretty well! Ribble’s award-winning bikes are designed in-house by people who live and breathe bikes and know how to make the fully customizable ranges "just right".

Ribble knows that every person is different, so every bike should follow the same attitude. Ribble lets you choose exactly how you want your bike to be, from the frame to the groupset, finishing kit, and ratio. To deliver this highly personalized experience, Ribble needed a solution to connect with its customers for one-on-one conversations. 

Expert advice for everyone

Ribble believes that for expert advice, you need real experts. That’s why the Ribble team connects customers with all kinds of experts, from serious road cyclists who compete at a national level, to mountain bikers who are consistently muddy, triathletes, BMX’ers, and commuters who start their day on two wheels. 

Bikes run in the Ribble team's blood, and whether this is your first bike or a purchase for a specific race, or you just need some advice, the Ribble experts have you covered. Ribble chose Emplifi to deliver live expert consultations to customers with Emplifi ShopLive.
