Infopia Platform to Make Online Selling Even Easier for Hundreds of Store Locations
SALT LAKE CITY, June 12 -- Infopia, the leader in on-demand multi-channel e-commerce, today announced an agreement with iSold It, the world`s largest chain of local eBay drop-off stores, to provide customized software support for hundreds of franchise stores through Infopia`s enterprise-class e-commerce platform.
With Infopia, iSold It has a flexible and robust platform for a 360-degree view of its e-commerce operations, enabling the company to extend, streamline and manage its thriving business as well as to make selling on eBay easier for iSold It sellers. This, in turn, will help to increase revenue, lower costs and maximize quality of service as well as customer satisfaction.
Ken Sully, chief executive officer of iSold It, explains the value of the Infopia implementation: "Infopia is more than a vendor but a reliable and trusted partner that can meet our needs today and in the future. Their solution is an important component of evolving and growing our business."
Specifically, Infopia will give individual iSold It stores new capabilities in a number of key areas to enhance its business as well as improve iSold It customer satisfaction:
* Greater market reach: In addition to streamlined selling on eBay auction and fixed-price marketplaces, each iSold It store can now market and sell items on its own online storefront, as well as integrate with multiple e-marketplaces, such as Amazon, Overstock, Froogle and others. This unified platform also assists iSold It`s expansion into other countries.
* Optimized selling: iSold It stores will have additional tools to process item listings, such as the "Second Chance Offer" feature to offer products to non-winning bidders as well as a library of iSold It-branded listing templates to quickly create effective and attractive listings. A campaign mailing list manager also helps to drive sales with proactive email campaigns into an existing customer base.
* Streamlined and enhanced operations: Infopia`s e-commerce system ensures an accurate and efficient order execution process, as well as easy and reliable communication with customers during the buying process. A rich listing tool creates a library of reusable listing profiles, and Infopia`s integrated solution gives on-going API support for shippers, marketplaces, payment gateways and other partners.
"We are pleased to have the confidence of one of eBay`s top sellers in our e-commerce platform," said Bjorn Espenes, chief executive officer of Infopia. "Online marketplaces are becoming increasingly more sophisticated and varied, which makes it more critical to have the right technology to navigate this complex environment. As our many other customers can also attest to, Infopia simply empowers online businesses with the capabilities they need to succeed."
