StoreFeeder Workshop Event – Have your say

We would like to invite you all to share in an exciting opportunity with us. In the last few years, our business and yours have grown exponentially together, and to further develop the relationship we have with our clients, we are planning to hold one or two workshop events in the coming months.

The purpose of these would be:

  • To give you an opportunity to meet some of our team
  • To participate in Q&A sessions
  • To demo our new features and to provide additional training on existing ones
  • To introduce prospective new clients to StoreFeeder
  • For us to better understand the needs of your businesses, and tailor the future development of StoreFeeder accordingly
  • To detail the roadmap for our future development

If you are interested, please take a few moments to answer some questions, and email your response to events@storefeeder.com.

  1. How many people from your company would you like to attend?
  2. How far would you be willing to travel? StoreFeeder is based in the Midlands, so is a location in the Midlands convenient for you, or would two smaller events in both the north and south be more ideal?
  3. Is there any particular training you would like to receive, or any further assistance we can offer?
  4. Are there any special requirements we should be aware of?

Please include any additional information or suggestions.

We ask that you respond as quickly as possible, as the earlier you register your interest, the higher your chance of securing a place at the event. We will be sending out invites as soon as we can.

 

We look forward to meeting you.

“Design and Automation” – Key elements of success in multi-channel retailing

The trick to Multi-Channel retailing, sometimes known as Omni-Channel selling, is to combine extended “reach” with high conversion rates where-ever possible.

A recent survey of our customers showed a keen desire to promote items on as many marketplaces as possible, but also that the seller’s brand should be promoted, ensuring high levels of sales through customer confidence and repeat custom wherever possible.

So StoreFeeder have teamed up with Frooition to bring you a fantastic set of world-leading “Design and Automation” bundles designed to extend your reach out into new marketplaces whilst ensuring the client is impressed by the look and feel of your product listings and therefore is more likely to buy your product and repeat purchase in future.

It can be difficult to identify quality partners in the multi-channel world so these new bundles will also take the worry out of this process for you. Combining Frooition’s world-class design services with StoreFeeder’s superb multi-channel tools you’ll be trading efficiently with great conversion rates in no time!

With high-end listing tools for most major marketplaces, re-pricers, stock control and order processing all thrown in, clients can quickly distribute core website inventory over to eBay, Amazon and Play amongst others, and with a beautiful listing template which has dynamic cross promotion, key info tabs and stunning design, the world is your oyster.

The evolution of StoreFeeder

 

Some of our clients may already be aware of how StoreFeeder was conceived, so to speak. We were born from a basic warehouse management system built for our sister company (we share premises), UK Fulfilment.

     

The original online warehouse management system was conceived in the mid 1990’s and was very basic and crude, but allowed our clients to login and place orders for their stock online for us to deliver to the customer.

This ran for many years and ran the warehouse activities for many hig profile clients in conjuction with telephone and mail orders.

In the mid 2000’s this system evolved again to include an API link to the clients website which meant orders would come directly into our system when an order was received. This may seem the norm now but back then this was high tech!

It was around 2009 when the initial concept of StoreFeeder beagn to emerge and we explored the possibility of linking eBay and Amazon accounts as well as the clients websites.

And there you have it! 2 upgrades later and here we are with StoreFeeder V2 which is virtually unrecognisable from the basic 1990’s software on which the concept was born. The only recognisable aspect of the software is that it still manages the warehouse for UK Fulfilment and its clients.

Not many pieces of software can claim that they actually use the software themselves, but we can, our own software runs our own warehouse.

For more information on UK Fulfilment and the services that they offer, visit their webiste at www.ukfulfilment.co.uk or give us a call and we will be happy to discuss this with you.

 

Multi-channel Retailing is not just for Christmas

In case you hadn’t noticed, Christmas is very nearly here!

It’s a busy time of year for retailers, and every year more and more consumers turn to the Internet to do their Christmas shopping, myself included. If I can avoid busy car parks, large crowds of slow moving shoppers and long queues at the tills then I’m game. What’s more consumers are noticing that buying online often means discounted prices when compared to the highstreet, a trend that pushes retail into ‘pre-Christmas sales’. It’s mayhem out there.
