To comply with my non-disclosure agreement, I have omitted and obfuscated confidential information in this case study. All information in this case study is my own and does not necessarily reflect the views of Sam's Club or Rockfish Digital.
To create a more dynamic digital experience, Sam’s Club worked to build the company’s mobile channels, engaging club members beyond the in-store and desktop shopping experiences.
Following the November 2011 launch of iPad, iPhone, and Android apps, the Sam’s Club Mobile 3.0 update built upon features that met with consumer approval. This virtual club provides consumers the opportunity to shop online and access exclusive deals and members-only content.
