Digital sales generate 55% of HSN’s overall sales, and the retailer is looking to new platforms, such as Facebook Live, to acquire customers.
To further speed delivery to both Web and mobile platforms, including shotfarm’s dedicated mobile viewer, NetSuite retailers can choose to serve images via optional integrated global Content Distribution Network (CDN) technology.
July 12, 2012 — CHICAGO, IL — Shotfarm, founder of the retail industry’s first free, centralized Product Content Network, today announced the new Simple Image Hosting SuiteApp for NetSuite SuiteCommerce. Built using NetSuite’s SuiteCloud computing platform, the Image Hosting SuiteApp enables NetSuite SuiteCommerce customers to host product images and rich media content on their ecommerce websites directly from Shotfarm’s network and provides extended rich media functionality for enhanced product presentations.
In addition to core HTML5-based rich media experiences – deep zoom and pan on single and alternate view imagery – Shotfarm’s Image Hosting service includes 360-degree and multi-row 3D-spin as well as color swatch support. To further speed delivery to both Web and mobile platforms, including shotfarm’s dedicated mobile viewer, NetSuite retailers can choose to serve images via optional integrated global Content Distribution Network (CDN) technology.
Users of the Image Hosting SuiteApp can gain additional benefit from the ties to shotfarm’s Product Content Network, a single free platform where thousands of retailers and manufacturers already find, request, manage and share product images and data. By serving rich product images and content from the same centralized location where manufacturers are uploading and managing them, retailers eliminate the need to pursue, download, rename, resize and re-upload images to the NetSuite SuiteCommerce platform or a separate rich media publishing provider. This streamlined process helps to eliminate workflow inefficiencies and speeds time to market, offering clients an instant return on their rich media investment.
“Gathering product content quickly, accurately and delivering it to customers in a compelling manner is critical for retailers,” said Raghu Gnansekaran, NetSuite Senior Director of Ecommerce Business Development. “Shotfarm enables retailers to accomplish this from a single platform, getting their products in front of consumers faster with better visual information to make buying decisions faster. Shotfarm’s integration with NetSuite brings particularly unique value to users of the SuiteCommerce platform.”
Shotfarm’s Image Hosting solution can be easily integrated with any NetSuite ecommerce site and implementation can be completed in a matter of hours, providing sharp contrast to average industry implementation cycles lasting weeks or months. Customizable feature combinations let subscribers turn on only the options they need and determine their own pricing, which starts at just $49 monthly. The service requires no long-term contract, can be canceled at any time and is backed by the same world-class customer support as shotfarm’s Product Content Network.
