UMZU, a pioneering supplements brand, is at the forefront of the wellness industry. Rooted in nature, supported by rigorous scientific research, and tailored to meet individual needs, UMZU offers a diverse range of vitamins and supplements. Their mission revolves around breakthrough blends and science-backed products.


Main Takeaways
UMZU aimed to make subscriptions their primary revenue driver, but their previous subscription provider posed substantial challenges. The portal limitations complicated subscription management, and a lack of Shopify native integration hindered their efficiency.
UMZU's interactions with their previous provider were marked by communication issues and unresponsiveness, impacting their subscription scaling goals.
A disjointed tech stack and several customer success managers from various providers operated independently, creating disconnected experiences. In addition, these siloed tools lacked a holistic understanding of UMZU's retention strategy.

UMZU had a clear objective in mind – to make subscriptions their main revenue driver. However, the brand's previous provider presented considerable obstacles, affecting both the UMZU team and their loyal subscribers. The lack of a native integration with Shopify surfaced issues such as the inability to create a single coupon code that could be applied to subscriptions. UMZU also lacked the ability to pull their product catalog to simply add new products to subscriptions selling plans.

The minimal service and communication issues further hampered UMZU's subscription scaling efforts. Deficiencies in proactive service disrupted their ability to implement growth strategies and solve day-to-day issues.

The complexities extended to their tech stack, where disconnection between platforms created disjointed experiences for UMZU's team and their shoppers. A fragmented ecosystem led to team members investing over six hours weekly to navigate the disjointed systems. The lack of cohesive communication among CSMs from different providers left them without a comprehensive understanding of UMZU's issues and retention strategy.

The Yotpo team efficiently handled our migration, and the support and white-glove service from Yotpo's dedicated strategists have truly paved the way for our subscriptions strategy's success. With Yotpo Subscriptions in tandem with the other Yotpo products, we are now on a path to surpassing the combined functionalities of our previous providers and are excited to significantly amplify the impact of our subscription program. Overall, we are extremely happy with the execution of the migration and the continued support we receive from the Yotpo team!”
