PROFITsystems, with partners MicroD and The Lively Merchant, have announced an advanced web solution designed to help their customers sell additional product, more effectively and efficiently. e-Showroom enables retailers using PROFITprofessional software to integrate and cross reference their inventory flawlessly with vendor catalogs and display them directly on their new e-Commerce enabled website. The partnership will utilize the ePiphany web site platform developed by MicroD. “Retailers can harness the power of three industry leaders in one web solution. Through e-Showroom, our clients can establish brand awareness, increase traffic levels, and maximize their advertising dollars by adding the equivalent of a second store without the building expense,” said Shelley Parlin, COO for PROFITsystems.
“This partnership gives retailers the strongest possible solution for their internet presence. We can help them connect to their customers and provide an easy to use shopping experience. Retailers will have control over their website, email marketing, and products shown without having to invest excessive time to maintain it,” declared Manoj Nigam, President of MicroD. e-Showroom is a complete package that offers configurable and non-configurable catalogs, an integrated room planner, email marketing system, free web-needs analysis, website development, search engine optimization, and social networking tools. Retailers will be able to select vendor catalogs or even have their own private label catalog built so shoppers can easily search through products without leaving the website and create wish lists or make purchases. David McMahon, Director of e-Solutions for PROFITsystems stated, “What this means for retailers is that they can have a web solution that is easy to maintain with product that can be sold. From website development, provided by The Lively Merchant, to customer follow-up, this one solution can meet all of the retailer’s needs. Their website is now relevant to the customer and salesperson. That allows for a huge ROI in terms of increased sales and decreased cost”.
