    A leader in its industry, Thule wanted a B2C experience for their B2B eCommerce customers. After launching on the InsiteCommerce™ Platform, Thule, a maker of bike racks, child carriers, baskets and related products, is enjoying higher revenues, higher adoption rates, and happier customers.

    Thule successfully sold its products through a network of dealers and distributors, but had a very low adoption rate for their dealer site. In order to maintain its position as a category leader, Thule knew they needed to overhaul their existing site and improve their customers' experience. After launching their site powered by InsiteCommerce, the site's user adoption rate in Canada (one of Thule's new markets) doubled in the first two months—far exceeding their expectations. Watch this video to see how Thule earned rave reviews from their customers.

    Last year, particularly in the fourth quarter, saw a noticeable shift in consumer shopping behaviors. Online sales soared 14% over 2011, reaching $289 billion, and mobile sales drove 11% of the record-setting holiday season.

    Web and mobile design converge

    Approaches to web design are changing as consumers increasingly browse the web from mobile devices.

    More than half of online shoppers use their smartphones and tablet computers in the course of making a typical purchase from an online retailer, according to comScore Inc. data. And so it is no surprise that the look and functionality of mobile and desktop sites are blending as merchants strive to provide a unified experience.

    Consumers want user-friendly retail sites, and to move easily from a merchant's site on a desktop computer to a smartphone or tablet. Regardless of the device they're using, they want to be able to quickly complete their business. As consumers see it, why should the web site experience change if they access the web using a mobile device or desktop computer?

If e-retailers could bring face-to-face service to their web sites and apps, they could please more customers and close more sales. The good news is that now they can, with technology from Vee24.
