Rooms To Go offers the nation’s largest furniture inventory through nearly 150 retail showrooms as well as online. Products are sold as complete room packages—an approach that makes for a simplified shopping experience. Designers coordinate each room’s colors, fabrics and accessories to the last detail so customers don’t have to. Customization counts The Rooms To Go and Rooms To Go Kids websites offer several variations of room packages and add-on options, allowing customers to choose just the products that meet their needs. Due to this variety, Rooms To Go wanted to better understand customers’ online purchase choices to make it easier for them to customize packages. A new view of the data As a Google Analytics Premium customer, Rooms To Go worked with LunaMetrics (a Google Analytics certified partner) to integrate Google Analytics Premium with BigQuery to gain understanding of customers’ online choices. Specifically, BigQuery is designed to help customers in querying massive datasets by enabling super-fast, SQL-like queries—all while using the processing power of Google’s infrastructure.

These insights have helped the company offer expanded functionality for customers to add accessory products (such as a nonslip rug pad with a rug) or coordinating pieces (such as extra dining chairs in
