UniteU’s powerful search refinement tools, promotions and analytical tools allow merchants to leverage a vast array of marketing initiatives from Email Marketing, Social Media Campaigns, SEM, Affiliates and Shopping Engines while supporting aggressive marketing campaigns when visitor volumes are at their peak. “Implementing Filtered Navigation Search in time for the Holidays shopping season resulted in a higher conversion, increasing order volume and revenue,” states Greg Baldwin, Web Manager, City Sports, Boston MA. “In addition to implementing features that helped us grow, we were pleased to experience the rapid support and backing from the UniteU team during the extremely busy pre-holiday period when we launched our marketing campaigns. This experience ensures our trust and confidence as we continue to offer our customers a great online experience. We had concerns that the increased order volumes would affect our fulfillment capabilities but the UniteU Order Hold and Release capability allowed us to streamline over 95% of our orders and minimize loss due to fraud”.

With recent site enhancements from UniteU and continued consistent overall platform stability, we have seen the correlation between peak web traffic and increased call center staffing needs deviate favorably. This positive change proves an increasing amount of trust and comfort on the behalf of shoppers in our site’s performance. There is no doubt that we owe a large sense of gratitude for this improvement to UniteU”.
