Ecommerce Solutions

Advantage Solutions understands that a multi-channel sales model through online sales (ecommerce) has become increasingly important for the survival of a Retailer business, as the amount of products purchased online increases each year.

Unfortunately it is no longer an option for Retailers to ignore online sales (ecommerce) regardless of the service level they offer or the exclusivity of their products. Even if a consumer has no intention of buying a product online, they will increasingly research products and pricing online prior to their purchasing decision. Although an online store can provide a significant additional revenue stream, it is also important for attracting customers to your physical locations and promoting your brand.

Retailers are often far too busy running their physical locations to find the time to invest in setting up and then maintaining an online store (ecommerce site), especially when an online store will only perform whilst it is being updated constantly with new products and the stock on hand of existing products.

Advantage Solutions is different to the multitude of traditional Web Developers offering online shopping sites, which relies on the Retailer to provide and update the stores content. Advantage Solutions has developed a solution that is fully integrated to Microsoft’s RMS platform that enables a Retailer have an online store up and running within a few weeks, with minimal effort and zero ongoing maintenance.

If a Retailer is less focused on offering an online store, Advantage Solutions can provide a site aimed at developing a brand and offering an online catalogue with product information without pricing.
