FIRST IMPRESSION
Website and apps look & feel during the first moments of usage
        WEBSITE
        • The main page is full of various discounts. The impression is that there are too many of these
        • No landing page in English is available
        • Banner with new customer benefits and delivery instructions is only visible before the signup, but not when a client does their first purchases
          • Also, this banner contains 3 advantages, while 2nd and 3rd are duplicating
          • Utkonos delivery advantages are broken down into 2 parts, with 2nd part located in the very bottom of the website
          • Phone numbers are easily accessible in the header
          • Moderated customer feedback is also available on the main page

          APP
          • Apart from Azbuka Vkusa, Utkonos has single app
          • The structure of pages in the app mimics that of the website which makes the navigation easier
              WEBSITE
              • The main page not only contains discounts, but also presents various additional services: express menu, catering, gift cards, flowers delivery, etc.
              • Intuitive delivery process instructions are present only on English landing page, but not on the main page in Russian. Why?
              • Azbuka Vkusa advantages are also located in the very bottom of the website
              • Customer support phone numbers are only available in the footer
              • There is no customer feedback available on the website
              APP
              • Azbuka Vkusa has 3 apps: Azbuka Vkusa, Express Menu and Vkusomania. This is not quite convenient
              • On first login, the app shows nicely looking on-screen tips showing how to start the purchase, which is helpful
                2

                SIGN-IN VIA SOCIAL NETWORKS
                Assessment of process simplicity and review of associated pitfalls
                  SIGN-IN AVAILABILITY
                  • Sign-in via social networks works well both on the website and in the app: you can easily sign-in within 2 clicks and start the purchases
                  • When visiting the website again, you do not have to enter login and password - everything is done automatically
                  DATA
                  • However, the key information (email, first name, last name) is not pulled from social networks automatically and you have to enter it manually
                        SIGN-IN AVAILABILITY
                        • On the website, sign-in via social networks is available, but active session time-outs occur quite frequently and every time you have to sign-in again
                        • Azbuka Vkusa Express Menu (express food delivery) website requires authentication separate from the main website - why?
                        • App does not support sign-in via social networks: having started purchasing on the website, you will not be able to complete the process on your smartphone
                        • Azbuka Vkusa Express Menu supports sign-in via social networks, but it does not work: when trying to sign-in, the app crashes
                        DATA
                        • When you try to sign in via social networks on Azbuka Vkusa Express Menu web page, it requires 7 data types, instead of standard name, email and phone number
                            3

                            SEARCH AND CART
                            Review of useful, as well as useless features of the website on this stage
                            GOODS SEARCH
                            • Search functionality works well: when entering a keyword, auto-suggest immediately shows goods with prices and links to related categories
                            • You can apply multiple filters, however goods cannot be filtered by caloricity
                            • There is no automatic load of next products when scrolling to the bottom of the page within the catalog
                            • On product pages, the categories of goods (gluten-free, vegetarian, etc.) are duplicated
                            • When viewing recipes, you can purchase all ingredients within 1 click - such shortcuts are quite convenient

                            ADDING GOODS TO CART
                            • You can add a good to cart or favorites within 1 click directly from the catalog. If you need to add several pieces of good, "Add more" button will appear exactly on the same place where "add to cart" button was
                            • Your order is always in front of your eyes in the right part of the page. Against each selected good, there are "Add more" buttons, so you do not have to search for a good again if you need to add one more piece
                            • You can create the lists of favorite goods. But if you have several lists, after adding goods to favorites, you have to go to favorites menu and manually allocate these to the lists
                                • In order not to forget anything, you can use "purchase lists" feature which also searches for goods based on the keywords for each item in the list. But, despite the statement on the website, app synchronization does not work
                                • In the shopping cart, the goods are grouped by categories - this is convenient. But if you have to remove the good from the cart and save it for future purchases, there is no such functionality
                                  GOODS SEARCH
                                  • On the website, you can choose goods meeting specific nutrition needs: kosher, halal, etc.
                                  • There is a filter to search for dietary goods, but no filter for caloricity
                                  • Same as in Utkonos, automatic page load does not work when you scroll down to the end of catalog page
                                    • If you've got the product available at home / in the grocery store, you can capture it in the app and add to favorites
                                      ADDING GOODS TO CART
                                      • You can add goods from catalog to cart within 1 click, but if you need to add more than 1 piece of a good, apart from Utkonos, you will have to move your mouse to a different area of the screen
                                      • List of goods in the cart is always visible, but it does not contain "Add more " buttons against each good
                                        • You cannot add goods from catalog to favorites within 1 click - each time you have to go to the good page. When trying to add a good to favorites, it does not work - this good does not appear in the list
                                          • There is no functionality of purchase lists similar to the one developed by Utkonos
                                          • You can move goods from cart to future purchases - this is convenient
                                          • When adding recommended goods on the cart page, total amount of purchase is not updated and you have to refresh the page
                                          4

                                                  HOW GOODS WERE DELIVERED
                                                  • Delivery cars are branded and nice-looking. Affable driver was in branded uniform
                                                  • The first delivery, as expected, was free
                                                  • Despite my request in comments not to ring in the doorbell, the deliveryman still did it
                                                  WHAT WAS DELIVERED
                                                  • Goods of different types were packed in separate bags
                                                  • The bags themselves were not branded
                                                  • Apart from goods, packing list and receipt there no extra items in the bags: coupons, free samples, marketing collateral
                                                  • My efforts to refuse the delivery of certain goods were successful. The deliveryman told that the money will be transferred back within 3-4 business days
                                                  • If there is no good in the moment of assembly, an analogue good is placed, which you can refuse to accept. No other related features are in place
                                                  HOW GOODS WERE DELIVERED
                                                  • Delivery car was not branded. Overall, in the center of Moscow I see Utkonos cars much more often than those of Azbuka Vkusa
                                                  • Deliveryman was also in branded uniform and thanked me for choosing Azbuka Vkusa
                                                  WHAT WAS DELIVERED
                                                  • Packs were branded and contained the phrase "20 years of love"
                                                  • As expected, I was presented with my first-purchase gift
                                                  • I also expected to receive a loyalty card (Vkusomania), but it was not delivered. It turned out that I had to request this explicitly in comments to the order
                                                  • There were no problems with refusing to accept several goods, however the deliveryman could not answer when the money will be transferred back
                                                  • In case of missing goods, Azbuka Vkusa calls/ sends SMS in advance, asking if you need to get those replaced

                                                    Review of post-delivery feedback management procedure
                                                    • Within the packing list, it is explicitly stated that customer service is always on client side and they would highly appreciate if you could provide feedback on the delivery
                                                    • I've received SMS requesting for feedback - this is great. But it was 1 day after I have already filled the survey on the website
                                                    • After the survey, a pop-up asking to share my feedback with friends appeared, but after clicking on it, the pop-up just closed with no further action
                                                      • There was no explicit request to provide feedback neither on the packing list, nor on bags, nor on receipts
                                                      • Email requesting to rate the delivery appeared in my inbox only 2 days after the event, and again, it was after I have already submitted the survey

                                                        RETURN OF GOODS
                                                        Which difficulties can you face if you want to return the goods after delivery?
                                                        • Food can be returned only in the case of low quality (expired goods, broken package, etc.)
                                                        • Non-food consumer goods can be returned, but it would imply a lot of effort from your side: call their office and alert about upcoming return of the product, get to their office in the periphery of Moscow only during the working hours, taking all respective documents with you. The good you want to return should be in a marketable condition, but what to do if it was defective already during the delivery, but you just haven't noticed?
                                                        • If after the purchase you are not satisfied with the quality of good, you can submit the return request via customer support (the details of process itself are not disclosed). On the website, it is stated that internal audit will be conducted and and quality will be checked. if the quality proves to be good, the audit expense will be on your side.

                                                        APP AND MESSENGERS
                                                        • Within the app, you can send a message to customer support, but it is implemented in an old-fashioned way of web form submission, rather than a live chat
                                                        • Utkonos customer support in Messengers has not been found

                                                        • There was no option to rate customer support after the call
                                                        • Similar to Utkonos, there is no feature on the website to order a call-back

                                                        • However on Facebook, my question about the replacement for missing products took customer support 30+ minutes to respond
                                                        WEBSITE

                                                        • The drawback is in the length of this code: it is 10 digits long, and you will have to dictate it to the specialist which is not quite convenient
                                                        • Also there is a live chat on the website, which is a good point

                                                        • Throughout the usage period, the app did not request me to rate it in Appstore

                                                        • Starting with certain status, the program implies many small nice things like free delivery once a day, 2 tickets to special events, 1 free cup of coffee a day for 1 month, free cake on your birthday
                                                          • 1 drawback of the program is that it feels like as if it is separated from the main Azbuka Vkusa business: there is a separate app for the program, in case of any questions you have to dial separate phone number or drop a message to a separate email address

                                                                                                                          • The trigger for SMS with feedback request should not only be the delivery itself, but also incomplete survey to ensure that clients do not get an alert again after they provide feedback
