SeeWhy reduces shopping cart abandonment rates and recovers lost sales

Scott Silk, CEO, SeeWhy comments: "Consumers are short of time and often shop on the move, meaning that they can easily forget about purchases or abandon them in favour of a competitor's website. Our partnership with NetSuite means that retailers can capture these consumers before they buy from another retailer's webstore, while NetSuite SuiteCommerce ensures that these orders are automatically integrated into back-end systems including inventory and fulfillment, ensuring that customers receive their purchases on time and as ordered."
